… on our long awaited “spring-process”.
Most of the lake is still frozen (some pictures will follow inshaa Allah, last week I had a really interesting encounter with a bike on melting ice) but this little river kept itself ready for the birds. There are two ducks somewhere in the grass, but they are too good hidden in this picture.
The bridge on the background has the text “tell us your story” written on it. Not really deep…
It has been a really strange winter. First, we got early snow, which melted all away after couple of weeks. Then the snow came back in january, which is really late, all the dark times were hard to manage.
Then the snow melted too early in february, we had really spring feeling in early march already. Well, last week there was snow again, but yesterday it rained for the first time! Today morning was really beautiful, the sun is shining and it smelled so good outside.
The lakes are still frozen, but all the snow above had melted away, I could see people skating on the lake, must have been fun :)
The snow has gone, but the lake is still icy
On a summer day you can see inside the ice. We went to the harbour, the kids had fun in fishing little ice floats.
And we catched a good one:
But the sun is warming now, and the ice will melt really fast. A couple of days later the lake’s ice is covered with water already
Sometimes I need just a little change in the daily routine. This time we changed our way home and decided to try another path. I knew our home’s direction, and there is a big forest in the middle of our town. So went this way, and it was absolutely gorgeous. Everywhere laid little snow, because this winter has been very few snowfall. So everything was covered in white and the forest was really quiet, although not far away from streets and houses.
It was not a long way through the forest, but I had never been in this part of our town, and it was a beautiful place. We did not get lost and came home about two hours late, but it was definitely worth it!
Beyond the blistering cold,
there is a light,
so valuable to those,
who have been living without;
such a thread to those,
who have enough;
How can we,
which we see everyday,
we tend to forget,
what it would be without.
Be thankful for everything you have…
A red sunrise rose that one morning,
painting the clouds in a beautiful color,
this was an amazing view,
lasting only a moment.
Never be to busy,
to stop on your way,
take a deep breath,
and recognize the wonders around you
