I have really enjoyed the daily writing challenge and was doing so good until Saturday came along and I was so busy enjoying the beautiful weather we are experiencing in northern Wisconsin that I never checked my email and completely forgot to post! Oops! Well, today is a new day and I will begin a new week determined to do better.

Winter is normally still in full swing in Wisconsin in early March, but this has been an exceptionally early spring for us. I love this time of year when the sun finally feels warm and you can be outside without having multiple layers of clothing to stay warm and dry. We were busy plowing slush out of the driveway, trying to expose as much ice as possible for the sun to melt away when I realized how much our two horses were enjoying this spring-like weather as well. They were chasing each other as if they were playing tag, the wind blowing through their manes as they frolicked in their muddy pasture. A short time later I realized he younger one was thoroughly enjoying the sunshine and was all sprawled out in the muckiest part of the pasture! Guess she doesn’t care that she will be coated in mud as it will be weeks before it’s warm enough for a bath.

I am a third grade teacher in northwestern Wisconsin. I enjoy being outdoors with my family fishing on Lake Superior, snowshoeing, and riding motorcycles. I enjoy my own quiet time in the garden, digging in the dirt, and growing delicious vegetables!

  1. I just love how you write about relishing they beautiful spring-like weather, but you are shoveling slouch to expose ice! And the horse frolicking until muddy- such a nice image, like a puppy but way bigger šŸ™‚
