the long thaw

The suns rays warmed my cheeks today.

The boys wandered the wood scouring the forest floor for insects and scat.  As boys will do.

The baby slept soundly upon my back, big adult size woolen socks pulled over his chubby ankles and wrists to keep the wind off.

Peonies are showing their purply stalks.

Sap buckets are full, and then full again.

The snow is still falling, but less of it now and the sunshine is fighting hard.
