Enjoy it while it lasts

We have been having some beautiful above average temperatures again. This weather makes daily chores easier, and is the kind of weather that begs a person to enjoy it. 

The other day, I ventured down to some of the native prairie pasture we graze with three dogs in tow. We walked across the pasture, enjoying the sites and sounds of nature. 

There were some deer, which have obviously been frequenting this area, and some sharp-tailed grouse, but largely this land, in winter, is quiet. The creek running through is frozen, the songbirds that summer here are long gone for the winter and there is no hum of insects. It may seem barren to many, but this sleeping landscape will awaken in no time, and with it a variety of spring and summer work, leaving us wishing for the cool, simple days of winter.
