(Since this didn't work the first time, I'm doing it again.)

It's sunny and 5°C (close to 40F) in the land of the Bear. Hardly a cloud in the sky. Perfect, warm day to be outside cavorting in the sun! (Cavorting; what's that?) Of course, I'm wearing a fur coat, so your experience may be different from mine.

I somehow felt like rousing when the warm sun hit my shoulders. So I stuck out my snout, and the rest of my body followed. Naturally. I can hear some birds singing, and a squirrel is chattering away. All good.

There's a bit of a crust on the snow under my paws, so I take it we've been through a few freeze-thaw cycles. 

No major news to report. But, then, I've been out of the news cycle for a while. Somebody could have declared World War 3, and I wouldn't know about it. (I hope nobody has done that!) It seems to be a normal winter. 

So I think I'll crawl back into the den.

One thought before I go. The fur coat belongs on the Bear . . .

not on the floor. We Bears are pretty attached to our fur coats. I don't know what I would do without mine!

I'm guessing it is 2015 by now, so I hope you have a great new year (well, as new as it is). 

Well, back to hibernating. See you in the spring. Or sooner. Or later. 

Blessings and Bear hugs, everyone!
