in the forest

If I've said it once, I've said it 100 times.
The forest is my happy place.

I don't know why I stayed away so long.
Oh yeah.
It's been cold enough to freeze your eyelids closed, for like, forever.

But today my girl and I headed out to the thicket.
(I have always loved that word.  Thicket.)

It was peaceful.
Just birds.
The occasional runner.
And us.

I feel restored.
And she feels like King of the World.

We then went to Panera for a snack.

And topped the afternoon off with a bit of old fashioned roller skating.

It was a good day.
I am happy.

Add buttered popcorn, my book, The Walking Dead, and an early bedtime,
and it is a perfect day.
