    Ice and Snow Brought Out the Birds

    Our weekend was bracketed with snow and ice, which kept the family immobile for much of what turned out to be a four-day mini indoor stay-cation. Although I was pretty much climbing the walls with my nine-year-old son by yesterday, there were a few bright spots to our confinement. This is where I shamelessly brag about my Kansas City Chiefs winning the AFC Championship Sunday.

    Winter Momentos at the Quarter-Acre Wood

    Spring was in the air this weekend, and we actually did a bit of trout fishing and yard work out in the wonderful sunny weather; we even had burgers and ice cream for dinner last night (looks like some bodies are jonesin’ for spring). But before winter is completely a thing of the past I thought I would share some photos from our last snow storm at the Quarter-Acre Wood. I’ll miss all the birds flocking to our feeders, but it’s almost time to reclaim the deck for humankind, a few potted plants and the occasional nesting feathered friend. Until then, please enjoy these momentos of winter. . .  As usual,…
