This morning I dropped BOTH girls off at the Kindergarten and took a walk around the village by MYSELF. I have lived here for over a year and I’m not sure I have really taken a walk by myself before. At least, not a walk for pleasure.
It was a sunny day with blue skies. The wind picked up a tiny bit later in the day, but the morning was mostly calm. It got all the way up to 51F / 11C today. That is pure bliss compared to the upper 20’s we’ve been having for weeks now. The blue skies were the best part.
At 9:20am, when I left the Kindergarten, it was starting to warm up, but the mud was still mostly all frozen. Frozen solid mud with frost on it is a new sight for this desert kid. I very much enjoyed being able to stop and take photos and videos during my walk without at least one small human bothering me. Usually I meet at least 1 other person walking along the path, but today I didn’t, which was nice so I didn’t feel the need to explain why I was taking photos of frozen puddles, frosted grass and leaves, and videoing the bubbling brook that runs through our village.
Here’s what I saw.
Look how the puddles froze. I’m not sure I’ve seen puddles freeze like this before. #desertkid
Frost on the crystals.
Frosty leaf with frozen mud. Much harder of a surface to walk on frozen mud, but much cleaner.
