Sunday Reflections…

The wind has calmed, the rain has ceased, Daylight Savings is in full effect & Spring is in the air! I got out first thing with the dogs and had some fun ๐Ÿ˜Š They are as excited as I am about this Spring like weather! Now, itโ€™s time to fix breakfast for the family- Country Ham, biscuits & gravy coming upย ๐Ÿ–ย ๐Ÿณย Oh, Coffee! Lots of Coffee!ย ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒž

They did a little runnin ๐Ÿ˜Š Everybody is happy about Spring!

“March bustles in on windy feet
And sweeps my doorstep and my street.
She washes and cleans with pounding rains,
Scrubbing the earth of winter stains.
She shakes the grime from carpet green
Till naught but fresh new blades are seen.
Then, house in order, all neat as a pin,
She ushers gentle springtime in.”

~ Susan Reiner, Spring Cleaningย 


Have a Great Sunday!

My crazy dogs LOVE to dress for cold weather

I’ve been doing a lot of Landscape photography over the last few days. All the freezing ponds and waterfalls have made for some great shots! My dogs are like our children & LOVE to go with me. My wife was so worried about them getting too cold outside in this freezing weather so she got sweaters for both of them… At first I thought how ridiculous, but they loved their new cold weather gear and it is COLD! My youngest pup really got his sweater nasty first thing and it had to be taken off & washed. In the meantime another walk was about to happen. I don’t know about your dogs, but mine are SO jealous of each other and everything! So much so that Rangers not having a sweater was causing a huge fight! I mean a HUGE fight! So my wife grabbed a scarf and tied it around Rangers neck to hopefully calm him down – It Worked!

Ranger LOVES his scarf!

He LOVES this scarf! He pranced around like he was the king of the world ๐Ÿ™‚ They went out with me and had a great time after they both had something to wear. Crazy how thing’s work ๐Ÿ™‚

With Scout and Ranger both fully dressed, the walk was back on! LOL!

I don’t know if there is a moral to this story, but it sure was cute!

After being out in the cold for a while following me around, they piled up for a nap. Our pets are our family in so many ways ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Pondering! and Happy New Year!
