K and I have played more "balance toys on your head" games lately. She mastered the toughest toy of them all, purple octopus. He wobbles atop her head because his underside is convex. I think that she's hoping that she's allowed to hike more soon so that we can stop playing such silly games!
R had his fun rolling in the snow during our snow bike ride. He rolled and rolled, and then wriggled and wriggled. His silly muzzle is still needed because our obsessive boy was digging mushrooms out of the snow and eating them. The orange vest will be needed for only one more day because tomorrow is closing day of rifle season for deer and elk!
Today, at the end of a long exploratory hike with a friend, we watched dusk fall and the moon rise behind wispy clouds. I don't know if people wish upon the moon - but I did. I wished for K to return to full strength someday so that she and I can take forest and mountain hikes together again. I missed her during today's outdoor adventures.
