It’s as if we live on a giant beignet or doughnut, getting dusted with coats of powdered sugar daily. It began this afternoon with large fluffy floaty flakes and by evening back to fine powdered sugar. When I took @fenleytucker out for his walk at 10pm, the snow level seemed to have gained around 1-3″, depending if the wind blew it away or not. Sculpted snow dunes were spotted as well.
I tend to relate things to food, have you noticed? 🤭 I might just be craving a nice fresh yeast doughnut with a dusting of powdered sugar ❤️🍩🌨️😁

Though he isn’t on this earth anymore, his spirit lives on within those of us remaining. Happy 85th year of memories. ❤️

We finally get a good dumping of snow this morning. I took Fenley out for his second snow outing, this time off-leash at the Blackie Spit Dog Park. His possible Finnish Spitz trait came through loud and clear, excited and focused on rooting out rodents while in the forested area. He actually doesn’t like snow on his walks, but in the forest, he’s a different dog!

He kept leading the expedition to hunt down small rodents, with the little Missy, a Cocker spaniel pup. At one time he had the entire pack of dogs at the park interested in what he was doing. He dug down up to his waist under that log and managed to eat something… I don’t know what. This evening’s poop walk will be interesting

Morning walks through the forest fill my heart 💗 esp when taken with @fenleytucker.

It’s been a difficult couple of weeks as I’ve been doing personal work delving into childhood traumas I’ve experienced. PTSD and depression are occuring in tandem and it is such and uncomfortable place to be. Dark dreary days seem to make it even harder. Thus when we have sunny days, I’ll take time out to get outside and soak up sunshine and nature at the same time, and getting the space to be mindful. And getting to see the sunlight spill through, it speaks to me, as I currently appreciate seeing the light cut through the dark, mimicking life

I got to take @fenleytucker out for his first snow hike on New Year’s day and it was snowing! It was like a snow globe yesterday 🌨️❄️☃️ I’m guessing he never had experienced snow before, being from California and that he made a few bad choices before learning what he shouldn’t do in snowy conditions.
He was a champ and loved it. I did have to portage him on my shoulders when we crossed the frozen lake which had freezing 2 inch thick slush due to the fresh snow in warmer temps. I could tell he didn’t want to walk in it, comparing to how he doesn’t mind walking in water. Luckily he fits over my shoulder and has complete trust in me to carry him that way

This bundle of fur has been my joy 💙

Today I’m having a 100% day off after two days of hosting family, dogs, kids and cooking. My Fen hasn’t had much quality time with me due to all the business, and being that he’s got an introverted personality trait like I do, today is much needed. Quiet quality time together in each other’s company. ❤️

Mother nature’s sunsets help remind us that no matter what happens, there is beauty for us to find, and a new tomorrow to greet us. Dusk slowly draws the comforting blanket of night over us, as if to say good night to the day we’ve had and wishing us a restful sleep. Sayonara sun. Oyasuminasai

It’s amazing what nature leaves at your feet. I was walking @fenleytucker this morning and had come across lots of debris from last night’s winds. This broken chunk of branch was so pretty that I had to pick it up and take photographs of it. The textures and colour palette, love!

I had thought the brown bits were lichen that I’d regularlt find on mossy branches, but upon closer inspection, they’re fungi with a fine peach fuzz to them. Oh how I love nature and how it delights
