winter isn't giving up

It's March 29 and winter isn't giving up on Iowa yet. We didn't get much snow overnight, but enough to blanket most things. It's so clean and fresh! Mother Nature is making everything clean & sparkly for spring to make a glorious & colorful late entrance!

When I turned back to the house, I discovered these two priceless babes watching my every move. Gandalf and Winston haven't let me out of their sight much since we lost Gandalf's brother Avatar to renal failure Friday night. They haven't had much attention the last few weeks since I've been caring for Avy, so not only are they making sure I'm ok, they are wanting their fill of affection (and believe me, I've been pouring it on them). I don't know what I'd do without my boys..... at the moment, they are each curled up napping in their baskets next to my desk. Yup, I'm in love..... :)

What sweeties! Sorry to hear of the loss of one of the babies---it's family,just with two extra legs.
Your dog looks like one I had when I was still in school....she was a pistol!
And while we don't have snow, they are predicting some for the southern part of the state...what the...???
It is still chilly here--quite deceptive as the sun is out. I need to work in the yard besides the house...might bundle up and get some of it done.

It is pretty, but enough already! I can't complain too loudly. It is cold here, but has been sunny for a couple days. That's a couple more than we had the whole rest of winter, I think!!

I'm so sorry about your loss of Avatar. Gandalf and Winston are adorable! Good that you have them and they have you.
