On Thursday I had to look at the calendar to remind me that it was only February 8! The temperature reached over fifty degrees, Fahrenheit! It was shirt sleeve weather when we should have been wearing down coats and heavy boots. Ken’s honeybees felt the warmth and flew out of the hives in great numbers, searching for something new to eat, fresh water, fresh air and goodness knows what else. The bees were everywhere and Luna didn’t like it. She had to go inside since she’s been stung more than once and goes out of her way to avoid any contact with the honeybees. Sky and I enjoyed the nice afternoon, poking around the yard, finding reminders of last summer, and she even posed for pictures.

The snow has been rapidly melting for the last ten days or so and where there was nearly three feet in late January, there is barely a foot now and none in the forecast. It’s colder today but with full sunshine, should be a nice day to be out and about.

Do it again. And again. And again.

Dogs. They don’t care that it’s raining. Or muddy. Or dreary.

My husband has decided to tell everyone that I’m a crazy dog lady and I have a bunch of friends that are also crazy dog ladies. Hmmm. Do you think that’s because I make so many of my images are of dogs? He does say it with a smile and he isn’t really complaining; at least not that I can tell. I think he’s just jealous that I get to spend so much time with these dogs.

Here are some images from today’s foggy dog walk.

Those who have read this blog for a while know that we got a new puppy back in October and her name is Sky. She is now seven months old and was spayed yesterday. She is a great puppy – the staff at the vet clinic was very impressed with her mellowness. We love her to pieces. She’s very trainable and pays attention as long as there is food or a ball involved. She will be a good hunting dog and she will start agility training this spring. She was ten pounds when we brought her home and now she weighs 52 pounds!

Last month I started a puppy book for her and I called it The First Book of Sky. It is a handmade book. Several years ago I took a bookmaking workshop from Door #3 Print and Book Arts Studio in Twisp but I confess, it’s been nearly three years since I made any books and I am out of practice. So I made a few mistakes with this one but it looks pretty good anyway. It’s an accordion book. All the pictures came from my Instagram stream. Here is the book and images I used in it.
