Ready for the next winter

In time for spring, Gaetan has finished collecting firewood for the 2014/2015 heating season. We will stack it once the ground is thawed and all the snow is gone.

The child who loves water puddles

No matter if it is clear water or a muddy puddle, Anya loves it all. She is still in the process of coming to terms with the consequences (wet pants and dirty hands). But we are working on a healthy attitude toward that.

Great water puddle!... What could I do about that? 19.4.2014

Looking for the Easter Bunny

When I prepared lettuce, Anya wanted to eat the dry leaves I had pulled off. I told her that we do not eat those but that she could put them outside and maybe a rabbit would come and get them. I made the mistake of mentioning the Easter Bunny as another potential visitor. Now, Anya keeps checking the site for signs of the furry creature.

Spring - finally!

We have been experiencing temperatures above freezing for the past three days. Finally, it seems that spring is just around the corner. Still, it will take weeks at best, before all the snow is melted and the river ice is ready to break.

Anya and I had our first spring picnic a short way up the creek, in the sun. On the way back I was the target for Anya's snowball-practice.
