Nature, Mother Nature...oh what a terribly wonderful thing. What I love most about early Spring is the unrelenting dog-fight it seems to wage with Winter to just let it pass, and give us all some relief!
Today, I spent a couple hours with my buddy. I was bundled and wrapped with a hat and a hood and a scarf and mittens! I was taking no chances after the crazy snowy day we had yesterday. I figured we'd have a quick jaunt up the hill and then a long walk back on the paved path.
Reilly had other ideas:
Ah, c'mon...we haven't been back in the woods in months.
So I followed. NO WATER, I yelled...
But, I'm pretty sure he was laughing at me!
And then, of course, next up, was the mud--I yelled, NO MUD!
But, he squished his toes in the ooze and smiled right back at me.
And then, finally he landed in a huge, grainy mound, and waited.
And of course, I did.
For this big pup, this in-between time...Winter's chilly entry into Spring?
Could last forever--but not for me! Bring on the warmth. I'm ready for REAL Spring!
***A little shout-out to our TEAM 26, riding in this chilly spring weather two Washington, cycling to make a statement, to work for change...to take us out of this in-between world of horror, and help bring an end to school violence forever in the United States! (Go Monte!)
Slice of Life Challenge:
For the month of March, I'm participating in a daily writing challenge, blogging, and posting, and reading other teachers' blogs. This challenge was started by two writing teachers, and can be found at their blog each day: www.twowritingteachers.wordpress.com. Feel free to join me! It's a great way to keep story threading throughout your brain each day.
