ICE IS EVERYWHERE!!!!


My word, my world is covered,
smothered in ice
so thick
so slippery
so dangerous!


Did I ever tell you that "fear" 
is not part of my repertoire.
I am walking along the edge,
the very icy edge of the slope.
Why not!!?!


Oops, there goes my blond legs again,
slipping with pretty much every step.


A much needed break ~
I can run here without any worry of slipping.
My back hind appears to be taking off behind me!


Here's that super icy trail again.
Did I ever tell you that I can figure out things pretty quickly
as in walking along the edge of the ice
always works better than ~~


landing on your DOODLETUMMY 
with all your blond legs splayed out around you.


Once I realized that going over the edge could
be a possibility then I stepped much more carefully.


So glad you are on my side Daddy Jim,
I do believe I growing weary of this ICEWORLD.


Let's head back to the car, OK!?!


This will show you my ice world high on the hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean
on this rather calm, slightly overcast with sun pushing through day.


Look what I saw on the hill as I was working my way back to the car.
Beautiful but very strange indeed!

  2. That ice does look beautiful Sophie but not very safe for walkies. You take care of those lovely blonde legs!
    Maybe I should stop complaining that I've got no snow and actually appreciate the bit of sunshine we had today !

    1. Oh Ryker, I thank you but you know your headers give me inspiration !!

      "ICE" is NOT my favourite 3 letter word at the moment!

  5. Goodness - that's too slippery and too far up, though quite beautiful glistening in the wintery light. Don't fall Sophie, Ron, or Jim.

    1. Too late! Daddy Ron fell onto his knees, seriously this guy just won't listen to Daddy Jim or me for that matter!

      He said it was so easy to ascend the hill but the descent was not even close to being easy.

      Cheers!

    1. You talkin' to us?

      I guess you must be, because I've heard those 4 words before.

      Photographers are nuts then because some of the unbelievable photos I am seeing on FB and here in blogland are just amazing. You are a photographer if memory serves me right, so ~~~~~~~~~ !

      Winks!

  9. I don't think I've ever seen ice as thick as that guys! I imagine that it would be next to impossible to keep your footing. Do take care, and I'm keeping everything crossed for an early spring for you!

    1. Jim wears "ice grippers" which he bought about 5 years ago. He hadn't used them because there wasn't any need in recent winters, except this winter which has been a record breaking one. I guess the 1950's is the last time we saw this kind of winter and I do remember snow banks as high as the eaves of the house. We fortunately are not having the onslaught of snow like the neighbouring provinces, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. We have snow then it turns to rain, flash freezes and then we wonder if we will get out of our driveway.

      I take one day at a time and can faintly see snowdrops which should be popping through on March 18th!!

      Fingers crossed!

    1. We have now decided with much coaxing from the many to NOT venture here again until the ice is all gone.

      So spread the word OK!

      Let's see you are now 50 + 1 week old now!

      Winks!

  13. That ice looks just plain scary! Sophie, your dads will need to get you some musher boots with grips (like sled dogs up north use) if spring doesn't come soon. Eddie the sheltie says don't tear your cruciate like he did! We'd be happy to share our spring weather with you, but it's kinda hard to pack in a box for mailing.
    Ron, that last photo is phenomenal. Absolutely love it.

    1. Hi Jean,
      Sophie seems to realize the danger of ice but not the danger of heights, so we have decided to wait until the ice is all gone before we venture on the hill again.

      Someone, I don't know who but someone said we were nuts.......I think maybe they might have a point!

      Cheers!
      Ron

  18. We seemed to sliding on top of the world almost like an outdoor skating rink!

    It looks like we are above the house as a matter of fact I think we are!
