OH what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day

Good thing you can’t hear me sing, as i can’t carry a tune in a bucket…Both yesterday and today are just beautiful, must have been up to at least +12 yesterday and right now it is +6, and i have the front door open…took Jackson for a walk yesterday, he sure enjoyed it… he must have peed 10 times by the time we got to the end of the driveway…he gets his nose to the ground and just goes… but he keeps looking back at me to see where i am… took him down to the creek, he loves water, but won’t drink or wade as his nose was working overtime… we have always thought he would make a good tracking dog, but his one knee isn’t great, and i don’t think he could handle charging thru the bush.. IMG_0008 then went to town, and had lunch with Andrea, she is on her own this month as her hubby is off to the Antarctic again… for 3 trips this time, but we had a good chat… did a bit of shopping and then home…

Took Levi for his walk this morning, been using the “haltie” on him… it is like a horse halter, keeps good control on an dog who thinks he is boss.. you can pull on him, and it brings his head down and around, so you have much more control on him…

Larry has been after me for some “date and nut loaf”, so am doing all kinds of loafs today.. cherry loaf, lemon loaf and date and nut… got the cherry loaf in the oven..lemon loaf half made and the nuts chopped for the date and nut…

It has been so warm that i think my currant bush is got buds on it..sure hope this weather lasts… and we don’t need the expensive snow tires… needed to add a picture so found one of the noisy bird…his newest words are “don’t be a guinea” and ‘Yankee’s a guinea…’  right now he is carrying on a phone conversation… the side he hears… “hi, how ya doing, okay, I'm fine, okay, what's that, ok man see ya…”  wish you could hear him…
