The sky is bright blue, there are a few clouds scudding over, and on my deck it is really warm. Since the puppy has gone I have to get all the dog snot off my patio door. The sun is lovely but it shows up every little thing. So now they are nice and shiny, but as that sunbeam slides across my wood floors everything, that the lower winter sun did not expose, is showing up. You can't win, the snow is receding and that is great but with that Annie the dog has started shedding and I have white balls of fluff all over the place. She has a fabulous winter coat but Maremma's shed twice a year.
So I suppose I will have to get into spring cleaning mode, but not too soon. I have lived up in the north of Canada to know that winter will not go out meekly, and we will still have a real dip in temperature plus more snow before spring really is here.
The moose have had a really bad winter, yesterday on the local news they told the story of an eleven year old boy waiting for his school bus, when he spotted a moose coming out of the bush behind him. It started to lower its head and paw the ground and then walked toward him. Luckily he had the sense to high tail it as fast as he could back home. The moose chased him all the way. It could have killed him. The moose are bad tempered right now, it has been a long winter, the snow is making it difficult for them to escape predators and some of them are getting infested with ticks which drive them mad.
We all have been warned not to go anywhere near a moose right now. They will even attack your vehicle.
