For the past few days, we’ve been dog-sitting. Charlie, the dog in question, has known us for a while now and every so often, he stays with us while his owner is out of town. I have been pretty busy at work recently and so I wasn’t terribly enthusiastic about having an animal around the house, but I’ve really enjoyed this visit. Maybe it is because I have been busy, that I haven’t really been exercising lately. Having a dog around is a good excuse to get off your butt.
During our recent outings, the weather has been pretty clear and so I have brought the camera along. So apart from the exercise, I also get a few pictures I can keep.
I have noticed a few unusual things while I am out. The shot above shows how the frost is melting in the shadow of the fence. I thought it was interesting that the fence has straight sections, but the areas where the frost is still prominent are curved.
There were a surprising number of things that were growing and even blooming in the relative cold of the Northwest in December.
I am very much enjoying Charlie’s visit. He seems to like our walks as much as I do.
