|Meet Rory - half Dachshund, half Black Lab. We're not |
sure how it's possible, either, but he sure is cute!
We like to joke that Rory ate Christmas, because an emergency vet visit is not cheap, particularly when it happens on Thanksgiving. But actually, Christmas was very nice. It's probably our favorite holiday, and we put up the tree and set up our nativity with accustomed relish. This year I also taught Shawn how to make 6-sided snowflakes and we delighted in covering the windows with unique snowflakes of different sizes and designs. Zoe, our cat, loved them too and SHE delighted in attacking them. Needless to say, the snowflakes didn't look quite as good when they came down as when they had gone up. But I couldn't begrudge her having some holiday fun, too. :)

I am grateful Spring has finally arrived - this year it seemed like it would never warm up. Spring is one of my favorite times of the year - everything is new and fresh, and the world is a clean canvas awaiting paint in bright and lovely colors. I'm looking forward to planting the new beds we've dug and planting around our new deck. There is so much of life that can be learned from a garden! I've only been gardening for a few years, but I think I'm really starting to catch on. I'm so excited this year, in particular, because we have put strawberries in! Now I can make jam with berries we grew in our garden - assuming they don't get eaten first!
So, as ever, life is good. We love life and love loving each other, and keep plugging away, looking forward to each change and bend in the road. Thanks for reading!
