"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived" Henry David Thoreau, Walden (1854)

Jack Frost and A Walk In The Woods

Jack Frost hit the windows on the cabin tis morn'n and altho its warm and toasty with the woodstove going I wanted to get out in the woods and see if we could find any deer antlers and check out the creek.  Oh was it cold yet the woods is so pretty with the frozen creek with spots of water flowing.

I didn't fall on the ice but my hubby almost did.  Need to work on falling skills!   We didn't find any antlers. Tracks along the creek was the only signs of critters, the woods was silent.

Ok I'm a tree hugger, who wouldn't want to tap some energy from this massive oak.  In the spring I like to sit under this big old tree.  Thoughts of its beauty and a big tree house but it will be left alone to just hug and read a book under, maybe a nap to ; ).

It was a nice walk on this cold day and really nice to get back to the heat of the woodstove and a pot of coffee.

This weekend I canned a few cranberries, I bought lots of bags after the holidays ,bags were 50 cents each.  Not only for eating but I am dyeing some wool spun with alum mordant hoping for a nice cranberry color.  I have blackberries, blueberries and elder berries in the freezer to can up and use for dyeing. I hope to blog a pretty page of natural dyed yarns someday.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week
