Can You Feel It?



I absolutely LOVE jogging during this time of year...not only because the temperatures are perfect for it, but because everytime I go out through the woods I can FEEL the earth growing. The earth shakes it's cobwebs and dormant spirit and revives itself...Something my own spirit desires.



I can see the same energy in my little furry family.

Today....Clyde.

I've mentioned my little guy before...he's a 17 year old Pomeranian. As Dave and I were heading out the door, he stepped out of his kennel asking to go. He's a funny pooch...years ago when I was jogging marathons and doing triathalons, he trained with me on the runs. He loved it, as long as the temperatures were reasonable. So, I became sensitive to his signals...when he wanted to go or wanted to "sit it out".

Today, he wanted to go....AT 17, mind you...isn't that like almost 120 in dog years!? AND....he's got congestive heart failure so I have to be very careful...but I could not resist his little face.

He knows Spring.

So I took him and we mostly walked, but he was so happy and spunky throughout our venture. He even ran ahead of me a couple times, stopped (and coughed) and looked back at me, like...."hey, yes, you....Loser....Catch up!"

We...Clyde and I...had a great little 3 mile walk/jog.

He knows it. He hears it growing out the patio door.

Warm...Growth....Life Anew

It's no wonder that our spirits lift when warmth spreads across the region and new growth happens...everywhere.

Beautiful description - spring is definitely in the air! (And I do believe dogs are happiest when out on a walk- yay for Clyde at 17!)

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
