Five Minute Skate . . .

Great Grand Oakland’s momma shoveled a large patch on the ice, at the lake, for skating.
Whew . . . took forever . . . quite a workout . . .



The skate lasted five minutes . . .
Makes me smile as I remember those days . . .

Bouncy Playful Fun . . .

Meet Abbey Mae . . .
Beautiful seven and a half week old Golden Retriever . . .
Arrived home to our friends Donna and Chuck this past friday . . .


We had a MLKD “Meet and Greet” yesterday . . .
Oh what fun this little ten pounder is . . .
And she won’t be ten pounds for long . . .


She runs chases bounces jumps rolls . . .
and almost flew out of my arms too . . .
We are very happy for our friends. . .
they love their family, grand children, animals . . . loving and caring through and through . . .


We are especially happy that Abbey has joined their family.
Their exceptional, beautiful Libby Girl died this past year . . .
Abbey has warmed their hearts and livened up their days . . .
(She is keeping them busy going outdoors with “piddle treks” in the snow too . . .)


I doubt there will be any complaints on the ear rubs, or playing ball either . . .
Happy Life Abbey . . .
Cheers and Welcome To Riverwood . . .

until next time . . .
love

January Mix . . .

Snow, Snow, Snow . . .
Cold Bitter Cold . . .
Bunches Upon Bunches Of Snow Everwhere . . .
Seventy Inches . . . from Christmas to now . . .


January Thaw . . . from zero to 50 degrees F in one day . . .
Mega Melt Down . . .
Unbelievable . . .
Roads cleared . . .

Rooftops became snowless . . .
Bare ground in many places . . .

And then there is today . . .
Snowy, very VERY cold again . . .
and it is Snowing Cardinals . . .
Plus many finches, juncos, chicadees . . .




Sorry about my cell phone photos through a dirty window . . . blurs when I try the close up . . .

*****
Stay warm, cozy, happy . . .
Thank you for your friendship . . .
Amazing how often I think of each of you during my days . . .
I care about each of you . . .

Until next time . . .
love

I will leave you with this thought . . .

One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.
