"There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you ..... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself."

I drive by this red, white and blue house on Otsego Lake all the time. It's a simple and small house, but it just appeals to me with its brightly painted exterior.
*I'm am up at the log cabin with sporadic internet access. I will catch up with all of your blogs on Monday. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you are all staying warm my friends!

"So with the stretch of the white road before me,
Shining snow crystals rainbowed by the sun,
Fields that are white, stained with long, cool, blue shadows,
Strong with the strength of my horse as we run.
Joy in the touch of the wind and the sunlight!
Joy! With the vigorous earth I am one."
- Amy Lowell, A Winter Ride

"Announced by all the trumpets of the sky,
Arrives the snow, and, driving o'er the fields,
Seems nowhere to alight: the whited air
Hides hill and woods, the river, and the heaven,.."
From "The Snow Storm"
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is my first meme I'm participating in and it should be fun! This is my Watery Wednesday post and to visit other participants, please click here.
This is a small lake called Fawn Lake in Gaylord, Michigan. I thought the water looked almost "ocean blue" against the white snow.

"Thinking is more interesting than knowing, but less interesting than looking."
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I visited Otsego Lake State Park this past snowy weekend. I wish I had brought my snowshoes. I had wanted to walk to this bench to sit and look at the snowy lake - but there was a snow bank and deep snow preventing a walk without wet pants afterwards. Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

The lake at our log cabin already has a thin layer of ice and is lightly dusted with snow. I am looking forward to seeing the wildlife that the white background and the bare trees will reveal. Last winter I saw a coyote walk across this lake in search of food. I am hoping he makes a return visit.
