|Snow in Meadows of Dan|
|Morning chores with the chickens|
We saw lots of tracks in the new snow as I walked with Emma along Concord Road. She is mostly head down, nose alert, along the way. Sometimes I wonder if she has a mental image to connect with all the scents she discovers. Does she know that this scent means a fox, or that one a deer? I know she has seen deer and squirrels and mice, but I don't know that she has seen every animal that crosses our path. She finds some scents so exciting that she vibrates over them, curly tail electrified. Others are merely worth a sniff and a glance. Often she ignores the tracks I can see in favor of a trail invisible. A squirrel scampered across the road in front of us this morning, leaving the corn maze for the shelter of the little woods.
Today will be a day of catching up and cleaning house. The dogs are sleeping sound after a big romp in the snow and the wood stove is crackling. The sun outside is already melting the snow away and the sky is a brilliant blue.
