Saturday, April 2nd

I walked the trial on Saturday.  If you didn't get a chance to get outside that day you missed out on a amazing day. Now, I went jogging today and the above picture is what the trail is starting to look like, clear of ice and snow.  However ....

This is what it has been looking like.  It is trying to melt. 
 Walking has been tricky.  Even jogging today (Thursday, April 7th) there was about 1/4th mile of this stuff.

Just feast your eyes on this sky. The blue, priceless. And those clouds, they are perfecto
The day was so clear, the river was so clear and the wind was windless
I just couldn't ask for a more perfect first Saturday in April
The geese are hangin out, along with ducks (Golden Eye) Otters, woodpeckers, song birds, bugs, yes bugs. I've been told that the fox are out and about, wish I would see one.  Heard that bear are stretching their legs. Bikers are now on the trial. More and more people walking.  AWWWWW Spring.  I saw my first Robin today (Thursday)

Yes, what a happy day

Today I started jogging.  I will try and run Grandma's half marathon June 19th along with my friend Tonya.  I just started training.  Should have been training a few weeks back.  But this Spring I am strong, I can do it.  I feel GREAT when I jog.  Two years ago when I tried running the half marathon I had a very difficult time.  Little did I know that I had breast cancer.  Today I am strong.  Today I can do it.

Absent for two months. Good to see the Chronicles back. I saw a huge swan out front stretching it's wings today while in the water. Wish i had a bigger camera with a telephoto lens...I'd be Monte Draper.

Yay! A new post! I LOVE the photos! The sky is so blue. My favorites are the ones of the sky reflected in the water. So peaceful looking.

Gorgeous new photos, I'm so happy to see you "back"! Yes, the fox are out and about ~ I had one run across the Becida Road in front of me a few days ago. I am now joyfully anticipating the return of the loons ~ that's my cue it's really time for spring/summer!!
