Oh, it's a good day!

We're getting the winter I had hoped for, and I have resolved that I am snowbound. I could get out, but I don't need to, and I don't want to. Just happy to be enjoying the beautiful scenery outside my window...





Daisie was thrilled with the snow today...unlike yesterday. She was eager to go out for our walk yesterday, but halfway through she was carefully stepping in my smoothly frozen tracks from the day before. The melted and re-frozen snow crust was scraping her feet at every step. Later, when we tried to get Olive some desperately needed exercise, the results were even worse. Poor little Frenchton had bleeding feet in short order, and that did nothing to improve her mood! So much pent up energy, and chewing her only release...It's getting expensive for Caitlin between the rawhides, and the destruction that she has caused of late...

I won't say anymore about that -- except that you better not leave her alone with the furniture...

No such problems today! The 4-5" of soft snow was cause for rejoicing for this boxer -- and I hear, for the little Frenchton as well! Crazy running, snuffling, and eating of snow!


Nice snow beard, Daisie!
"Mom -- I'm trying, but I can tell you that I won't be able to eat it all...Sorry."
I don't know why, but boxers always think they have to clean up the snow by eating it...


I've had dreams about a snow day, and how I would spend the whole day doing projects that I never get to...Nowhere to go, there would be no excuse...
The truth is that so far, I have done no projects, have drunk 3 cups of coffee, and boiled some eggs so if the lights go out I'll have protein. Oh -- and I read 3 chapters of my book, and had a nap -- pretty much at the same time.

And I looked out the window...
A LOT!

I think I will consider "Looking Out My Window" an official snow day project.

Sounds like a perfect snow day! Projects can wait (haha...they've waited this long, haven't they?). Enjoy your winter.
