A Walk in the Woods

Yesterday was cold but beautiful, so in the late afternoon we ditched our inside plans ( I skipped the cleaning!!) and headed out into the woods. Daisy rode in the backpack, commenting on everything in friendly unintelligible baby language.

It was like being in another world, only fifty feet from the house. We hiked down the steep back side of the mountain until we came to the old roadbed that runs through the woods. We collected some grapevine for wreaths which will hang in the living room windows for Christmas.

Eventually we came out a ways down the road and stopped to visit with the neighbor's horse, which was most exciting for that lover of all animals, Daisy; then came home, much refreshed.
