What an absolutely beautiful day today in Wisconsin. The temperature is almost up to 60 and it's not even noon yet. (finishing up the blog at 3 pm at it's 63)
We decided that instead of watching the stupid TV today, we would take off and go for a little walk back behind our house. We are fortunate to live next to the Northeast Wisconsin Land Trust Nature Preserve. It's absolutely beautiful undisturbed land with woods, ponds, and an abundance of wildlife. We are sooo lucky to have this right at our back door... errrr back yard to enjoy and appreciate.
There's a couple main trails to walk through, but the rest of it you just got to kind of make your own way around through it. There are a bunch of deer trails but they lead off into the swamp.
Today was such a beautiful gorgeous blue sky day. There was no breeze at all, and we were soon hot and sweaty in our winter jackets. We wear blaze orange and take extra care because it is still bow season. Even though they're not supposed to hunt back there, the property does abut close to the DNR Marshland.
After our walk, it was so nice out that we took care of some cleaning up jobs around the yard. The leaves are almost done falling from the trees. This might be the last load to the front curb for the city to pick up.
Here's Steve's two beautiful little woodpiles, sturdily stacked up in two spots in the backyard. These are from all the trees he cut down last week.
Sometime during the next year they will get transferred over to the neighbor's property where he can burn them for heating his home. It's too green to burn this winter.
Tomorrow is going to be even nicer than today.
