What a beautiful, wonderful winter!

Did you ever see such a smiling, happy guy? I'm even having fun clearing trails
Call me Pollyanna, but I'm finding this winter to be one the most enjoyable in decades. I don't think a day goes by when I don't say to Brenda, "We live in the very best place in the world!"
From the front window of our home in Nolalu we can see a ski hill that is 40 miles away. A week ago we saw a beautiful grey wolf or timber wolf crossing the field right in front of our house. Yesterday there were three whitetails walking down our driveway. Our birdfeeder is loaded with colourful pine grosbeaks, blue jays, redpolls, chickadees and others.
Every day I strap on the snowshoes and Cork and I wander around the mile or so of trails we have on our property or alternatively, we take to our country roads and put in three-to-four-miles of brisk walking. Saw three deer doing that yesterday too.
The temperature has mostly been terrific. It's below freezing but this is Canada, don't forget. We actually like it to be below freezing; we count on it even.
Frankly, it's too nice to come inside and I'm falling behind on all of my desk work. I just keep thinking that sooner or later it will be really cold, like -40, but it just hasn't happened. Now the days are markedly longer again.
