Although it has been extremely cold this past week we do try and get out when the sun is shining. Getting some physical exercise especially a little cardio workout is important. 

Snowshoeing is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and get a little exercise.

Mary likes to put out a few apples for the deer whenever we go for a hike.

Peaceful and quiet back here.

Sun is going down and time for us to get inside.

Today we are expecting 15 - 20 cm of snow but the temperatures will be much warmer climbing to -3*C later this afternoon. This evening we could see freezing rain. 

I guess that means getting the bobcat out and clearing the driveway before the real nasty weather arrives.

Be careful out there, it could be a treacherous day on the roads.

  1. Interested to hear how much snow you got. Isn't Mary just the kindest soul. The deer must love her. We are currently on the Mayan Riviera in Mexico. It is much warmer but dealing with rain off and on. Have to grab the sun when we can. There are over 80 of us here for a wedding on Wed. Great fun to be with lots of "old" friends. So nice to be back seeing your blog. Keep warm and well. Love your photos as always.
