Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Of course, this holiday is a big hit in our house. It's now almost dinner time, so I am off to color the dinner green. We will be dining on Green Vanilla Yogurt, Green Beans (wish I could have convinced them to add some broccoli) and for dessert, Pistachio Pudding. DH and I will add some hamburgers (yogurt just doesn't hold us thru until breakfast). I'm going to try to take pictures. We have enough sun I might just get some decent shots.

Quick weather update: Sunny and nearly 40˚F. Although the sun is supposed to disappear again in a couple of days, we are supposed to continue with these temps into the weekend. Hmmm.... a small sign that spring is on it's way?

In Loving Memory

Denali's Alaskan Dreamweaver (Chaos)
April 22, 1997 - March 11, 2010

He was a good friend, but when his kidney's failed we just felt it was time to say good-bye. I seem to be having trouble saying more right now. What can you say when you have lost your best friend. He was truly loyal, and yet he was a friend to all who entered. Not the typical Sheltie at all. No matter how I tried, he would jump and bark not so much when you came to visit, but when you started to leave. Because, in his eyes, once you were here, you were meant to be here forever.

He will be missed more than anyone could know!

The Olympics are over!

We have cheered our athletes until our voices are hoarse. We stayed up late and got up early to catch all of the games physically possible (and taped those that weren't). We've graphed the medals and studied a little of the host country and city. We cried when we lost and jumped for joy when we won. But now it's time to come back to Earth.

Oh, wait: The Iditerod starts this week! Oh well, more to learn and more to cheer about!

Ain't life grand?
