We had week of weather.

First we sat outside and enjoyed the warmer weather.

The yard is still a mess but as things dry up Mo is going to fix thing.

Speaking of babies.  Our friend Tara had her baby.  His name is Oliver and he is a cutie.  She sent some pictures.  Someday he and he and Owen can have a play date.

As I said we had we had weather.  This was the way it was one morning.  We thought we were through with that.

BG brought us treats and good scratches.

We can weather every thing as we get treats and scratches,,

Treats I say, treats!

One more of the snow. and then it will be nap time.

Thanks for stopping by to see us.

See you next week.

and wonder about what makes the universe exist.
Be curious."
– Stephen Hawking

"Whatever your difficulties - a devastated heart,
financial loss, feeling assaulted by the conflicts
around you, or a seemingly hopeless illness -
you can always remember that you are free in every moment t
o set the compass of your heart to your highest intentions.
In fact, the two things that you are always free to do -
despite your circumstances -
are to be present and to be willing to love."
~Jack Kornfield (b.1945)

"The flesh surrenders itself.
Eternity takes back its own.
Our bodies stirred these waters briefly,
danced with a certain intoxication
before the love of life and self,
dealt with a few strange ideas,
then submitted to the instruments of Time.
What can we say of this?
I occurred. I am not ... yet, I occurred.
~Frank Herbert (1920-1986)

“Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great.
You can be that generation.”
~Nelson Mandela

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that,” and encouraged us to “shine our brightest lights next Monday.”
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s

We are now struggling for a new world which is based on peace,
which is based on love, which is based on justice,
which is based on accountability, based on human rights.”
~Tawakkol Karman
