We have enjoyed a couple of days filled with sunshine and mild temperatures.
Well mid 40's is mild for February in our area.
The snow is almost all melted except for a few spots left in the ditches.
The landscape is covered in that dull, dead brown.
With a mix of black mud!
The farm truck is surrounded by it!
Lots of muddy tracks in the drive way.
Even the path to the chicken coop is a challenge.
I am running out of spots to tip toe on trying to stay out of the muck.
Now I know why the room coming in the back door is called the
A never ending job of scrubbing puppy prints!
I did manage to scrub some of the boots off today.
But as I took a walk around the yard yesterday,
I did find a little happiness mixed in with the mud.
The first signs of spring!
As a girl that has grown up in the mid west I have learned to just deal with the mud.
It comes every year!
And right before spring.
So maybe just maybe it could be a sign of spring.
That is what I am choosing to believe!
