The cold air hit my face hard. “If I walk fast”, I told myself, “I’ll be fine”.
It was frigid, but it was do-able once I got moving. Pink and blue hues filled the sky and grateful tears gathered at the corners of my eyes. The craziness of the workday melted away. I lasted about 15 minutes before starting back toward my car. On the way, I looked over at the baseball dugout, my attention captured by the rock solid ice reflecting the sunset through the wire.Getting close to the fence would require trekking through six inches of snow on the path, but it looked worth the jaunt.

Too bad I didn’t have my good camera on a recent walk, but these geese made me laugh as they were waiting for the ice to thaw. Captured these on my phone, but not too close so the quality isn’t too sharp (geese are nasty if you get too close!). They were gingerly walking around, staying near the grass and making a bunch of noise!
