Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

April 24, 2013

It's a positive event ( I think) when the snow is starting to be replaced by mud.

The Athabasca River is now free flowing.
 The geese are starting to stake out their territory. They like to nest on the little islands and sandbars.
 All of the trees and debris were not there last summer, but were washed in as the banks eroded upstream. There is no shortage of firewood along the river!

 The geese are feeding along the small tributaries.

Spring is getting closer!

It does look like it is getting closer. But, I have to say, I always hate the "mud" stage.

It's good to see that spring is arriving in the cold north! :)

It's been such a long winter, I wish a short mud season for you and some warmer temps. It's nice to see that pretty blue water.

Free firewood is always good. And, I love rivers! Here's waiting to see spring's green your way.
