The weather in our area has been downright nuts - lately. It’s like - Mother Nature can’t make up her mind. Or - maybe she’s just now waking up and trying to make up her mind. Or - maybe she’s been awake - around the clock - drinking Colorado Bullfrogs - while trying to make up her mind. Oooooh - I really could have gone for a few of those on Friday night!
Or - maybe God’s having a little fun with shaking up his little Water Globe. ( That - I have no doubt ! ) Either way - I wish things would calm down enough to allow the sun to warm us up and welcome a beautiful spring!
Yesterday was a day that you almost had to sit still and keep your eyes looking out the windows. If you didn’t - you missed something!
This rainbow was so huge and so close that we couldn’t see the full half-moon shape. But what we could see was so bright - loaded with color - and so vivid. I don't think I've seen a rainbow with this much depth in color ever before!
I had to take shots from the back porch and the front porch. That’s how big it was. A Double Rainbow even tried to form. And it stayed - forever!
I was reading Tonia’s posting yesterday and she did something that has made me decide to start setting myself up for getting into so much trouble. " Yeah - Tonia. It's your fault ! " She’s got new babies! Yeah - new chicks!
She shared photos of those cute little peepers! And that just woke up “ a little bit o’ Giddy “ in me! Right now - we’re waiting on the rain to let up and give us a few good days during Hubby’s days off - so he can build our Chicken Coop and Run.
I can’t wait until we get to enjoy those babies - and wring our hands while waiting for that first egg!
But I couldn’t help noticing something in Tonia’s photos that gave me an idea. The supplies. That’s something I can be doing right now! Makes no sense to wait until the last minute. " Thanks for reminding me, Tonia ! "
This photo was taken on March 4, 2010 - only ten days ago. And I had a heartbreak moment last night. I was down on the living room rug playing with the pups. I got the two of them joining in for a game of Tug O’ War - ( just like they were doing in this photo ) - with one of their other toys - when I realized something new. Carlie has overtaken Zucker in strength.
I’m learning that it’s becoming really hard to tell how fast - and how much - a Basset Hound puppy is growing when you live with one on a daily basis. It really pays to take photos on a daily basis.
I can - no longer - stand up and hold Carlie. By the time I get her picked up - her entire front quarters and head are hanging over my shoulder - out of sight. I now have to sit down with her in my recliner to enjoy some puppy love!
And she hasn't come close to finishing up with her full growth - yet. Without a doubt - my girl's gonna be a monster!
And Spinner says - “ I don’t care how big she gets. The couch is MINE . "
