Good morning hush

These a quiet hush, just before the sunrise. Before the rooster crows, nothing to be heard but the sweet bird songs. Good morning new day. πŸ’›πŸ§‘πŸ™πŸΌ

Penelope doesn’t know it but today is her first day back to doggy daycare since she was spade. It’s been over a month. I can tell she’s ready to play and be crazy with her friends. πŸ’•πŸΎ

How our gardens grow

A lot of orange and yellowsπŸ§‘πŸ’› Alex and I have had so much fun planting and creating new gardens this spring and summer. Lots of porch sitting going on at our house. πŸ§‘πŸ’›

These came back so nicely this year. Cornflowers they smell like a flower shop. πŸ§‘β€οΈπŸ’›

Snow sunrise

Penelope started barking when the sun came up. She loves watching sunrises too. πŸ’•πŸΎ

Seeing the field covered in snow reminded me of growing up. We could hardly wait to get outside and make tracks in the snow. Penelope and I made a lot of tracks and memories yesterday. πŸΎπŸ’•

I wanted you to see this through my eyes. ❄️

Penelope’s first snow

We had so much fun yesterday playing in the snow. We got 6” of snow so I took P on her first snow walk. Angel used to love the snow and our snow walks. One fact about Penelope is that her breed is used to the cold temps so I could barely get her to come inside yesterday. We’ve already been out twice this morning.

Our little nosey is a little red from burying our bone. We kept forgetting where it was.

Oh Deer Tree

Mood board I made with some of the ornaments. πŸ¦ŒπŸŽ„

This year Alex had the idea she wanted a red & black plaid deer tree. We’ve had fun changing everything over to this theme. She ❀️ s country . I love it because it reminds me of my Pa. πŸ¦ŒπŸŽ„

This is an 8’ tree so it’s hard to get it all in the picture. πŸŽ„πŸ¦Œ
Miss Kitty Kat is so happy she thinks we put this tree up for her. She and Penelope take turns playing with the ornaments and pulling the garlands down. πŸ˜‚πŸ¦ŒπŸŽ„
Penelope likes to lay by the tree waiting for Alex to get up

This year is different since our sweet Angel dog passed away. This is the first Christmas in 17 years without her. Making new memories with these two sweet animals is so fun. Penelope likes to porch sit like Angel did. πŸ¦ŒπŸŽ„πŸΎ
