A Romp Through Snow and Mud

Quiet day today. Did some editing, watched some more S&tC, and just relaxed. 

Around mid-afternoon Andy and I decided to talk a walk down to Beaver Brook because it was so beautiful out. We also decided to take Indy with us, just to let him have some fun. Needless to say that the little dog is a nuisance on walks. He can’t seem to walk in a straight line, so you get the whole “legs tangled in leash” issue constantly, and besides that, he likes tangling himself around trees and thorns. Yeah. But he’s just so gosh-darn cute, it’s impossible to stay irritated with him. 
We walked down to the trail by the Nissitissit River.  I don’t think I’ve ever followed the whole trail to the end (back to Worcester Road), and it got a little hairy back across the little bridge. Apparently it’s warm enough to melt just enough snow to make it muddy, but not warm enough to get rid of the snow. So it was a cold, slippery walk which created small snowballs under the arches of my feet. Burr! It was a neat walk, though, even if it doesn’t seem like the trails are well-kept back there. After weaving through the underbrush, wondering where the path actually was, and how to get back without walking all the way back the way we came, we finally arrived with cold wet feet on the side of Worcester Road, at last back in civilization. Then we had fresh-baked brownies (courtesy of my sister) and ice cream. Yum! ^_^
Other than that, it’s been a quiet day. Thinking about starting the seventh Harry Potter book tonight. I’ve been putting it off for quite a while, but I sort of just want to get it over with all ready. I’ll think about it. But that’s it for today!
