… It Snew and Snew …


I don’t know what Pup was so interested in on this tree stump but I love the picture.  As you can see we got up to snow – piles of the stuff in fact because it had drifted everywhere.  Unfortunately underneath the snow in the yard the ground is saturated and so I ended up with snow mud pies!

We managed a whole dog walk today without someone chasing individual snowflakes! and here are some of the pictures:

I think he could smell Fergus here (his Springer Spaniel pal)

We had mini blizzards while we were out but it was nice to be out in the fresh air with my boys and Pup was well behaved.  He sat and waited for a tractor to pass, and again for a car.  Then he went off lead down the lane and today he remembered to turn off into the woods.  On the way down the lane he got himself stuck in a snow drift on the edge of the dyke – he had to reverse out and on the way back he was across the dyke through the drifts so when we got home he needed a thorough towelling underneath as well as on top.

He settled in his crate though happily enough and I popped back to see Evelyn, who was feeling weary and sore legged.  Walking back was a little unpleasant – the snow was being whipped into my face and it stung!  Still while I was out I did see the driver that sorted out my ticket yesterday and got a cheery wave.

… and then early this evening it started again …

I am now settled for the evening with two sleepy boys who hopefully will only want to go out once more at bedtime because it is still snowing out there.  While we sleep I am trying to make some dried sweet potato chews for the boys – so I will let you know how those turn out.

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
