Thin ice

Late last week, the little pond outside our back gate froze over. Granted, the ice layer was paper thin, but it was there nonetheless. Since we've been here, the pond has frozen many times, but I don't think it's ever been frozen enough to walk on.

Even if this ice were thick enough, skating would be impossible because of the all the plants sticking through.

Now our weather has warmed back up. Today is rainy and that means more mud. And shorter walks with Tasha.


  1. Sorry about your Newsiness. Take a nice nap this afternoon.

  2. It has a 'winter prettiness' to it though.

  3. I hope you don’t have the flu.

  4. Too bad - no ice you have skates, Walt?

  5. mitch, they did a nice job. Glad you have the sun. Send it up here when you're done.

    sheila, thanks. All is better now.

    michael, I agree!

    bettyann, no, nothing like that. Thanks!

    mary, not any more. I did a lot of skating when I was a kid, though.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
