Well now



It has taken me a few days to get back into the 'swing' of things after my trip to Wausau.

All the snow on the south facing hillsides is gone. There is still snow on the north hillsides. Well, I'd call it ice/snow. It warms during the day and freezes at night.

The owl pictured above has graced our old ancient oak tree for the past couple of days.
I've seen him/her in the pre dawn hours and then again at sunset.
Last night I was able to take a semi decent shot of the bird.


We are also seeing sunshine! Last night the skies lit up with wonderful golden and orange hues. I didn't have time to run up to the ridge but did take this as the sun set in our hollow.

Today it is supposed to be 62 degrees? That is unheard of in mid February.

February 16th. What a good day.
We saw Dr. Witek from the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center. He pronounced that he felt that he didn't need to see Rich any more. The VA is following up well.

And.
We are about 18 months out from the end of his throat cancer treatment and things are looking pretty good.

So that makes it a great day.
