After three days of eating and talking, hanging out with my kids by the fire, watching old episodes of Scrubs on a laptop computer while snuggling in bed under a down quilt with my husband, taking afternoon naps, and other forms of decadent behavior, it was time today to pull on my boots and take a hike in my own woods. It's been unseasonably warm, so I was splashing through puddles, although a dusting of snow on the bare branches and hemlocks made the scene look like winter. I could feel my sluggish body beginning to wake up as I breathed in the moist air, stomped through dark pools, and caught snowflakes with my eyelashes and hair.
