Goings On

In the midst of the cold,

the snow,

the frost,

determined Spring is showing her face.

The first of our seasonal Bird friends have returned... Mr. Robin Redbreast was spotted a few times this week, fat and sassy, scouting the landscape for a home for his sweetheart. See him there, perched in our Anniversary Tree?

In the meantime, my Dearest is hard at work on this President's Day, putting the final pieces together so we can move our new Dog Family in by sundown.

Nice door, eh? Yes, the man can build just about anything. No time-travelling machine as of yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if the prototype was in the thought process as I type this.

Yep, today is the day. For better or for worse, in sickness and in health, our lives will be bound to 6 Labrador Retrievers and their offspring. The adventure of finding families for our puppies and building upon a community will be irreversibly started.

I am most excited about the lessons these two will learn from caring for animals as a way of life.

But I think that they will be a *weensy* bit sad, in the beginning, about giving up their new playhouse.

Anyone else think the next building project should be a fort for the kids?

I love the door. And a playhouse would be so much fun for the kids!

Beth, I'm so excited for you Matt and the kids! This is really a gift ! As I was lying in bed this morning with Otis next to me, Win at my side, and Sherman at my head, I thought "get me out of here!!!! No, I was really feeling how lucky I have my three side kicks to bring joy into my life and the kids. Love, Deb.

Your husband is very talented -- he has built a great home for your new family members! And yes, I think he will have to build a playhouse for the kids! They are having too much fun in the dog's home! They are the sweetest little people..... :)
