Even though it was a busy Sunday (Fattie’s grandmother turned 98 and we had a very yummy family dinner at my in-laws in her honor) I managed to sneak in a quick jaunt this evening.

Luckily for me, one of the grocery stores I frequent is located directly on the lake, so a shopping trip to stock the fridge accompanying a walk along the drink with the sun setting in the background, was undeniable and quite effortless. The promenade that runs aside the water is not that long, can’t be much more than a few kilometers – if that, but this coupled with walking the course today makes me feel like I got in just a little bit of needed movement…..

In March of most previous years, the lake would still be completely frozen over (as in frozen solid – thick enough to drive your car on – oh, you can probably only imagine the fun Fattie and his brothers have skidding around the lake with their ‘ice cars’ – can’t wait for that adventure), it would be minus some stinking temperature that is synonymous with ‘bitterly freakin’ bone chilling cold’, and there could easily be a meter plus (that’s 3.28 feet for my friends in the US or those of us challenged with the metric system) of snow packed high outside.

So, what’s the deal this season?

We barely had a winter at all here; just a touch of snow 2 or 3 times that melted within days of falling. I mean – don’t get me wrong – I’m certainly not complaining. Whatever the reason – I love it. Spring is coming and I can almost taste it.

Out on my walk this morning, I snapped a few photos.

Even the golf course is looking green green-ish.
