Moose(y) Monday Morning

Comforting sounds of the coffee making in its electric pot. The automatic washing machine chuga-chugging away as the bedding gets washed. The fire in the wood heater gives an occasional sparking throwing its welcomed warmth into the kitchen. The very comfortable so-called working cow-dogs stretch out on the floor soaking in the heat.. Large brown moose have nibbled their way across the wee island over the frozen snow-covered river to Laurene's cabin and meandered off into the bush behind it. Always pulling at a willow here and there.Snow-laden trees are their only cover.
Silence fills the air. The deep silence of a cold march morning in an almost forgotten corner of the Cariboo country here in the northwest central British Columbia.
That was Monday morning now it is Tuesday the temperatures have fallen to 30 below zero. Moonbeams are still touching our part of the world somehow making it magical inspite of the cold. Hinting of dawn is being greeted by numerous over-zealous roosters.
I love the mornings~~well I actually love the days too but mornings are somehow my favourite time of the day. This morning with my cup of tea in hand and my fire stoked dressed in warm flannel I am going to cut out a new nightie and crochet on some of the afghans I have on the go.
This is the day that the LORD has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
Have a great Tuesday

I agree, mornings are great. The house is silent, coffee is hot, the birds have started singing their spring songs.-But we don't have -30. We have been so spoiled this winter that when it gets below zero, you should be able to hear us complaining all the way up there.
We don't have the abundant moose that you have. We do have a mom and her twins that were born last spring. They have wandered all over this area.
Snow is melting today.
Have a blessed day.
