Life is good.

Sunrise is getting later, and the angle of the sun is changing. This spot in our forest just started getting that warm reddish light of sunrise this week.

Shyla and I love to play in this aspen grove, especially during the fleeting time when the sun shines on it so early in the morning. My recollection is that this sunrise light on Shyla's leaping log lasts only about a week. Since it's supposed to snow for the second half of the week, we'd better get out and enjoy it again tomorrow!
We heard a woodpecker drumming on a tall dead tree while we played this morning - another sign that spring is coming! I love the rebirth of the world as it heads toward springtime.

When we arrived home, we were greeted by the boys who were lying in a sun puddle. Hachi took advantage of having both of his siblings at home by crossing his paws and snoozing in between them.

I think that Hachi is utterly content.
Life is good.

  2. Hachi has his own living fur coats to keep him warm. they look as happy as big boy is in his sun puddles. we are losing Big's sun puddle, the sun is moving to the North and soon he will not have any in the kitchen but by then it is to hot to lay in it...the leaping photos are amazing and in the first one she looks like she is bursting through a wall. she is so beautiful

    I bet you both smiled big smiles when you saw your boys waiting. I love how Hachi crosses his front paws..

  5. Shyla sure looks like she enjoys leaping and having her picture taken. Little Hachi sure has wormed his way into his siblings hearts. Such a sweet picture of him between his bigger sibs.

  6. We love watching you leap so gracefully over your logs, Shyla! You are the luckiest boy on the planet to have Shyla and R on either side of you, Hachi.

  7. Yes, the light! Yesterday I rejoiced to see the sun well over the horizon at the time when, weeks ago, the first ray was barely peeping over. And now I can delay evening chores a bit as well, although this winter I've gotten into the habit of doing a final round at about 8PM, with a flashlight, anyway. So peaceful out there at that time - the goats already settled and quiet, and Moxie or Della, sometimes both, joining me for a moonlit adventure before bedtime.

  13. We are also hoping for the sun to be out longer during the day and winter to move on already. You have such a happy group there. Hachi is ready for a nap in the wonderful sun puddle. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. Have a wonderful day.

  16. Get ready for the storm, KB! We're to have high winds with it, too. Love those photos of play and rest.

  17. My feeders were low today, which kept the squirrels away, so I had lots of birds including woodpeckers. This winter we haven't had the blue jays we had last winter. As we prepare for at least 15 inches of snow overnight, we don't think spring is ever coming!
