Make Your Peace With Old Man Winter

In a few months, this lake will be abandoned:  The fisherman will be resolute in their quest until the lake freezes over, then giving their rods and reels a winterizing before hanging them up for the season. The person in search of solitude may find a bench on which to relax, restore, repose and enjoy the view–until the jarring cold breaks their train of thought. The sounds of incessant chatter coming from The Scouts who often frequent the lake and camp nearby will lessen as the temperatures drop, their laughter fading until the last chuckle dissipates into the air. Make your peace with Old Man Winter by making a commitment to go outdoors!

Daily Quote of the Day for YOU:  

Blow, blow, thou winter wind
Thou art not so unkind,
As man’s ingratitude.   ~William Shakespeare

  1. One of the ways in which I reach out to Old Man Winter . . . I grill more than ever. Nothing better than grilling as the snow is falling. Sure beats grilling whilst my skin is baking inside 90 degree temps.
