Mother Nature

These pictures were taken by John on one of our ice fishing trips to.. They were waiting to see what we would leave behind.

Today was a beautiful Spring day but not quite warm enough to melt the snow...what's up with that? I cannot believe we will be going into April with a few feet of snow still on the ground. I should not complain they have 7-9 feet up North so our chances of seeing grass by May is a little more likely.
I did manage to go for a 2 mile jog down the snowmobile trail this morning. There is nothing like getting your cardio workout done outside rather than on that monotonous elliptical in the gym. I didn't even turn on my MP3 player. My goal is to do some type of exercise EVERY day off! Ok, now that I have announced I am committed.
I feel very fortunate to have this land to work out on. I never have to worry about a crazed dog chasing me.....just the coyotes checking me out on the back 40 thinking it's been a long winter. I do not have to worry about cars splashing me or running me over...just have to avoid all the mud holes that are inevitable after this Springs thaw. I came home many days last year with sopping wet sneaks.

We should be getting our chicks tomorrow so I will have a video posted by the weekend, Im working the next couple days.

I will end this post with a few quotes.

The richness I achieve comes from Nature, the source of my inspiration. ~ Claude Monet

Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you. ~Frank Lloyd Wright

There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story. ~Linda Hogan

What beautiful pictures of the eagles. I hear you 100% on the snow melting. We are anxious to get back to camping, fishing and hiking here.
