Afternoons are good

When you can spend time playing with pups.  More photos of Hexe's pups on her Nursery Blog here 
Everyone suffering from the February Blues should be able to get on the floor with a bunch of pups, sure can lift a mood!

February blues, greys and browns

This is what is outside my door this morning, pretty eh?

This is what my mind sees....I am usually an optimist, I see a fresh snowfall as beautiful.  After a week of mud followed by a day and a half of wet snow, to hell with optimism.  The last day of February, I thought I would make it through without feeling the February blues, but, I am feeling the winter grind.
This afternoon I will throw a big quilt down in the hallway, toss in a bucket of toys and release the pups for a big play session and try to forget about the mess outside.  Hey, that almost sounds optimistic :-)

Count down to Spring

Twenty-one LONG days till the first of Spring.  The older I get the more I anticipate it's coming, especially on a wet, snowy, slushy morning like today.  These simple grocery store tulips brighten my day

“Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine...”
Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden 

 “I enjoy the spring more than the autumn now. One does, I think, as one gets older.”
Virginia Woolf, Jacob's Room: The Shakespeare Head Press Editon of Virgina Woolf 

 "The deep roots never doubt spring will come.”
Marty Rubin

And then....nom-nom-nom....eating puppy heads :-)

 OK not really, Hexe is teaching her pups not to nibble so hard when nursing, guess the puppy teeth are coming in now.

Winter coats

 Like many dog owners I tend to let the dogs coats go long during the cold winter months.

Winter Storm 2013

After snowing for an entire day the sun is out and everything dreary is brightened and fresh looking.  Looks like 18"-20" fell yesterday.  Our biggest and hopefully last major snowfall of the winter.  Chickens refused to come out yesterday, they emerged with the sun today, happy that the sky is no longer falling. 

A rainbow of brown eggs

Our eggs come in many different shades of brown.  I sort of like the pink/brown, very pretty.
