Quiet snowball making… with Leo.

No surprise that we got dumped with snow this week. About 6:15 am we heard a loud POP! We had 4 trees total fall on our property. One landed on the power line connected to the kennel. Our dog run at 7:00 required us to wear head lamps until the sun helped us out.

My son Spencer kept pegging me with snowballs. I’d be actively looking for our morning canine deposits before they were lost in the white powder… then I would feel yet another peg hit my shoulder or back.

Get serious Spencer!

That’s exactly what he did.

Out of the corner of my eye I see him making a nice big snowball for his mother.

Leo, was helping him smooth it out!

Well, he was definitely trying to get Spencer’s attention.They worked on it for several minutes getting it to a nice “this is going to hurt” size.

It wasn’t to long before that snowball was headed my way or at least Spencer tried.

Leo is one of the kindest dogs. I’m not sure why golden retrievers are so people oriented. Always ready to snuggle right up and be a friend.  This morning dog run was just fun to watch the dogs enjoy the snow…just because… it doesn’t come very often here.

Madelyn and Mowgli

My oldest daughter Madelyn decided to take my sewing machine home a couple months ago.I didn’t expect to see such a wonderful gift when this beautiful quilt was given to me on Christmas morning.

Made of all the scraps of fabric that I had left over from my quilt making days.

It used to be therapy for me to sit and cut squares and triangles to sew together. Especially when I had lots of little children at home. I admit I am a teenage mom…young children were hard for me. So…time spent with color and quiet meant a lot.

Mowgli joined our family in April after we lost our beloved Zoey.

Preston (and the rest of us) needed a new little dog around.

Mowgli has been a joy and a stinker all rolled into one.

mowgliquiltI’m sure you can tell from his face that he enjoys causing a bit of trouble. His favorite activity is to drag items all over the house. I’m never quite sure where one my shoes are…and I now have to check the area for my daughters underwear before I will answer the front door.

But seeing him wrapped up in my new gift was… a gift to me.

A quick reminder that dogs bring joy and love to our lives without saying a word.
