Winter is definitely here! December 13, 2012
We have had a lot of snow days already this week. None of them have been all that serious.....just light fluffy snow. But, as you can see in the photo, it keeps doing it. I should have very good skiing in a week or so if it keeps up. At present, although I am skiing, a few roots need a bit more padding yet.
As for "Skinny Butt," he is here for the winter now......I am quite sure. When I come in to the living room or kitchen in the morning, he generally is watching the window or the "magic door" to see if I am coming to give him his morning treat yet. This morning, I must have been 5 minutes later than usual....he was right by the door.....staring at it......wishing it to open and give him his goodie! Too funny. I hope this buck stays around for a good number of years yet. I like his majestic presence and am not always so fortunate to have a big guy that isn't standoffish. He is always very punctual for the afternoon treats too. Yes, he knows when life is good!
Then, there are the antics that make you laugh......just because. Yesterday, I was watching one of the does over by the plowed up snow pile. First, she was just digging the heck out of it with one front hoof. Then, she would jump in the air, twisting and turning, and land in the pile of snow. My husband and I were both watching her play like a little kid in the snow. She did it a number of times too. They never cease to amaze me with their play and games out here.
Who needs TV?! I can just look out my window and see better stuff than what is on TV anymore. Commercial free......too!
Critters......such wonderful little beings. So many, so thankful for what they are given......
