I looked out the window yesterday and saw a fresh set of tracks in the snow. Look at the bottom left of the bird feeder in the photo below. You can see them and how they arc up toward the fire pit.
My husband pointed out to me that they came all the way around our house and then onto the walkway.
Guess they didn't realize that there was a coating of ice under the fresh snowfall . . . WHOOPS!
And then out into the woods they went.
Another little thing that makes me smile.
