HAS SPRING ARRIVED???????Maybe,it is finally going to happen?
We've had a week now of slightly warmer temperatures. Mostly 30's,
a couple of 40's. Some sunshine that always makes it feel warmer.
Several days of very heavy fog. Not so much FUN!
Now we have snow,slush,ice,standing water,some muddy spots,wet
hay & sloppy manure around the place. I've been outside with Gpa
sniffing and snooping several times without a coat. Today Gma
took me for 30 minutes after all the laundry. Today was the 1st.
time,I had to have the paws and tummy showered off. We have been
able to just wipe me off! Looks like spring is finally trying
to unfold! Yippy!
We are hoping we will not have any snow in April! There are a
lot of Aprils where we have had heavy snow. Even snowstorms!
We will be in full swing of calving in about 2 weeks. Last
year on Good Friday it was 81. This year is was 38. Last year,
alot of peeps had potatoes and cool weather vegetables already
planted. This year the ground is still frozen. Ice hangs in
the rain gutters. Last year we had an outside BBQ for Easter.
This year we had Easter Dinner all cooked inside!
We do need rain this spring. As we do not have the subsoil
moisture we had as reserve in spring of 2012. Last year Gma
had washed all the windows inside and outside. Raked the yard
and cleaned up sticks and branches. This year,NOT even
close to warm enough to do so....
We had a Pawsome Easter and we hope all our pals did too!
Thank you for all the Easter Eggs and other Spring pressies
sent to my furmily. Our pages are so very pretty! The
grand children were here. No Easter Egg Hunts this year.
They think they are getting TOO BIG.... No one ASK ME,
if I wanted to pass! I LOVE sniffing out plastic
eggies with my own personal treats stashed inside. We
didn't do it! Gma and Gpa are trying to shake colds.
All the preparations to be ready for the day. Just wasn't
any extra time.
We had a yummy fried chicken dinner,bacon augratin potatoes,
green beans,creamy cucumber salad,green vegetable salad,
relish tray,crescent rolls,lefsa and apple and lemon pies.
Precious and I had chicken for Easter dinner too! I also
tasted the lemon pie. I've Never had that before...I Loved
The kids played toys with me. Granddaughter washed all
the dishes for Gma. I volunteered but was rejected! So
Jaxcen and I went off to play with my stuffies. The peeps
played a whole game of double dominoes. This is 12 rounds
and took all afternoon. It was then time for them to go home.
I was sad to see them go! The kids had school today....
Their school had given a few days off for the state
basketball tournaments.....They had to give up Easter Monday.
I slept in this morning,as I was a pooped pup!
Tell me about your exciting Easter??????
Hugs and Kisses,Mazy
