Yay it’s MUKOW MONDAY! This photo was taken today — about 30 minutes ago, actually. It’s 39 degrees and between the higher temperature and the all-day-and-all-night rain, there’s actually mud peeking through the snow. MUD! I never thought I’d be so happy to see it but there it is. I’m trying to remind myself that it’s still January and this is most likely a cruel trick to get me ready for spring before being plunged back into a cold, icy existence, but… the high temps are around 30 degrees all week and that’s okay with me.
We had fun playing outside for about 45 minutes which was great because Mukow loves — LOVES — the snow. And playing. And being outside. And watching the squirrels who were just hopping from tree to tree above us. Awesome. 🙂
