I did spend the day with loved ones. I took the dogs out for a run behind the quad bike this morning:
Check out Dulcie, the spaniel on the far left - that's her normal speed, all 4 feet off the ground
It's not great exercise for me but the dogs can run at their speed, and it helps to rid them of their spaniel energy. They're so fit from working that it's not fair to just retire them for the season, so I 'rough them off' like you would a fit horse. They always get their morning and evening walks regardless.
And I spent the afternoon with Mike in the woods, cutting and splitting logs for our wood pile. Actually, it was quite romantic. The snowdrops are in bloom -
The sun was out, and we went at a sedate pace. I cut while he split and in no time we had a full load.
No wonder my back hurts, I stand like a flid when I'm sawing

So we sat on a log and watched the sun go down.
Dakota has always been my regular chainsawing companion but I think she's OK about sharing me with Mike. As long as she still gets to ride in the front of the ATV -
I hope everyone else had a happy Valentine's Day too.
