I rarely see anything other than birds when I’m
in the woods, which is surprising, considering
I’m in the woods every day, so I was very pleased
to find to 2 porcupines in the trees on Sunday
afternoon. I managed to get some pics of both

Ah, yes, boys and their toys. Every year in April, a group
of guys gets together for a little fun in the mud in
Fence, WI. Anyone who wants to can run their
truck through the mud, and if someone gets
stuck, someone else will happily pull them out.
Yeah, just a bunch of good ol’ boys rippin’ it up
in a muddy cornfield. This little event attracts
quite a large crowd, too.
My nephew and his mud truck and my husband.
My daughter and my nephew.
After a little trouble-shooting, he was able to get back in the mud.
Last week I introduced my dog Axl, so this week I’d like to introduce
my other 2 “furbabies”, Jack and Earl. They are 2 1/2 years old.
Jack is the one on the bottom shelf and his sister Earl is on the top
shelf. And yes, I knew Earl was a girl when I named her, I was just
trying to be funny. They are both big “love-sponges” and are the
2 sweetest cats we’ve ever had, and they get along just great with Axl.
In the silence there is beauty.
Stand beneath the cold, gray sky,
And feel it penetrate your soul
And calm you like nothing else can.
Life is in limbo all around;
Not quite dead, yet not growing either.
Such weariness, waiting for the sun.
Cold winds blow,
Stirring the leaves around my feet.
Snow falls, but doesn’t linger.
Trilliums lay patiently,
Closed and huddled against the earth,
Waiting to bloom.
A single daffodil opens,
The promise of new life.
