The air was so frigid and windy this morning that I whimpered whenever my fingers were exposed. To stay warm, K and I didn't even stop for the sunrise. We just kept tromping onward trying to generate heat.
Right now, we're watching to see how she does without antibiotics. We stopped them one week ago, and I don't see any signs of the bone infection returning yet. The vet will check her on Friday.
The surprising visitor was a mule deer buck. This is only the second time that my camera has captured a deer close to our house. I suspect that the overwhelming coyote presence usually deters the deer.
Today, despite the cold and nearby hunters, I bundled on my 5 layers of warm clothes and headed out on my snowbike. After all, the alternative is to ride a stationary bike indoors. I need to ride a bike every day to keep my spine pain under control. The view from Hug Hill was special, and I found myself dreaming of riding up there with K again. Maybe soon!
