By Jill Henderson – Show Me Oz –
Even though we just had a string of lovely, sunny days, overall, it’s been a pretty gloomy winter here in Oz. Early cold and snow, persistently cloudy skies, and a generous dose of downright gloomy days are enough to chase just about everyone indoors. The temporary respite we just had will be followed by a weekend of snow and rain and who knows what else. Despite all that, there are good reasons to get outside; and get movin’. My reason of late has been good ol’-fashioned rock pickin’ – a hillbilly pastime if there ever was one.
