Hurry UP, Spring!

Bringing me down:

Bailey often hangs out in the tree at the park so the other dogs can't get her. She is afeared of them.

Perhaps you cannot tell, but the air in that picture is full of freezing rain, the worst kind of rain there is.

Cheering me up:

A cheery pink bag. It feels wrong to carry it yet, but soon it wil be time.

Your 'cheering me up' section cheered me up, too. Thanks.

The 'bringing me down' reminds me that Barley was like that for a LONG TIME (like 4-5 years). He's recently started standing up for himself a little and we're so proud. I know most people scold their dogs when they growl at another dog, but we are sorta happy.

Bailey will be fine. It just takes time.

Poor Bailey - hope it's not a dachshund that terrorizing him..........;)
Thanks for the little dose of spring-like stuff..........

Hurrah! Spring springs slowly here too, but there are buds around. And before long you can carry your pretty bag. I vote for sooner rather than later, putting a spring in your step at least

ooh, i haven't had nonpareils (i know i spelled that wrong) in forever.

i think the bailey picture actually belongs in the "cheering up" section--she's such a cutie pie.

I love shrimp plants. Such odd flowers.

And I love that Bailey, a dog, climbs into a tree to get away from other dogs. She's such a non-traditionalist!

Great post! I love all the color, I think you should use your bag now, it's fab!

Bailey is quite cute in the trees.

Perhaps Bailey is a noble pacifist, standing above the fray?

Poor Bailey - he would love Sophie, she is the ultimate submissive...but loves to play.

Nice hooked rug! My Mom just got into it as a craft-hobby and is, um, "hooked" on it (groan). I'm hoping to get a nice hooked rug someday...

I love that bag! Is it handmade? It looks like maybe it is which I mean in the best possible way. I asked someone at work the other day if they were wearing a handknit sweater and they were offended until I explained that I'm a knitter and I was impressed. Anyhow, nice bag!
