Snowballs and other things

Tuesday, December 01, 2015


It is definitely snowman-making weather today. It started snowing yesterday morning and pretty much snowed off and on all day. I had to take Daisy outside 3 times to convince her to do her business so we could all go to bed - she was so excited to see the snow. She kept running around and sticking her nose down to the ground. Not sure what she was thinking, but she was certainly enjoying herself.

We got up this morning early and she couldn't wait to get outside. I have a platform where I sit while she checks out the yard every morning. This morning I took the shovel to clear off the step, a path to the platform and the platform itself so I could take out my chair. She thought that was so much fun. As I was clearing off the little table I could see that it was perfect snow for snowballs - so I threw one at her. Next thing I knew, we were playing a new game. Mom throws snowballs and Daisy runs to try and find them. If I threw them in her direction she caught them - but didn't seem to get why they fell apart in her mouth.

I can't remember the last time I played out in the snow. It was so enjoyable to see how excited she was that I started enjoying it myself. Her little tail was going so fast and she was jumping up so high. It certainly is the little things that can make or break a day!

    I am just delighted that you can get out in the snow, and have so much fun with Daisy. I love the idea of her catching snowballs and looking around perplexed as to where the darned ball went...

    We only got a couple of inches here in Minneapolis. Wimpy snowfall for all the hype, as usual!

    Spark on.
