Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

Under the Canoe

We stored the canoe for the winter, placing it upon a couple of saw horses.

As it turns out, a bird appropriated the space and built a nest.

It took us a few minutes to figure out what that shiny thread was in the nest.

The thread is from our old, bright blue boat cover. I've always wanted to put our hair out for the birds, but never seem to get it out there in time. This nest has clearly been abandoned now that it's purpose is done. So, it seems that mid-March is the time to put the hair out, but it just seems so strange to put materials out for nest-building when there's still snow on the ground.

What a nice, beautiful surprise to find under the canoe!
