We were lucky enough to spend the weekend at our friend’s cabin, enjoying the warm winter weather and a break from the every weekend home repairs. I really needed a mini-vacation, and this was a perfect little trip. We didn’t do much, it always amazes me how fast a weekend can go, but I think we needed the change. We took advantage of the warm weather and walked the dogs in the bush for almost 4 hours on Saturday. Other than Patches and Brinkley finding a dead deer, and having to wrestle the rotten legs away from Brinkley, it was enjoyable to be outside doing nothing. We put the deer leg into a bag (to prevent a repeat on the return trip) and I finally took some pictures, something I haven’t got to do in a while.
Because it had been raining, everything was coated with ice. It made dog walking a little slippery, but made all the trees sparkle. I loved all the little frozen drops.
I think that fresh snow makes mountains look so much nicer. They make a very nice backdrop for early morning walking.
The sun was also pretty nice at the end of the day. This was the view from the cabin living room just before we sat down to eat. Not bad.
Other than the dog walking, we ate. I know, not the most exciting but we had the most amazing sticky toffee pudding for dessert. I have never eaten sticky toffee pudding before, but I will be making this recipe again and again. And don’t worry if you don’t really like dates, you can’t even tell they’re there. It’s making me hungry just thinking about it.
