My goodness but the weather changed on us overnight again. My poor little buds don't know what to do. Peonies are up about a foot, tulips are sagging and lilacs are afraid to peep out of their buds. Down to freezing again last night after being in the seventies last week. Poor babies. My pups go to the door and look out first when I open the door to let them out. They love the sun but balk at the cold as they have very short hair being doxies. We have miniature dachshunds.
I think because their legs are so short and they move so close to the ground that their bellies must get cold too, but they hate to put on their sweaters because their legs are so short they step right out of them and then they trip all over the place. You have never seen any thing so pathetic as a yard full of drunk looking doxies tripping over their garments. "Mother" gets very mad at them when they get in her flowers because they tend to trample them but they don't seem to care all of that much. They do it anyway. Sometimes I think for spite!!
They stay real clear of my climbing rose bush though because the little bugger reaches out and grabs you every chance she gets and tears you a dandy hole in your skin with her sharp little thorns. I threaten every year to tear her up but then she blooms so beautifully and I remember why I put up with her evilness.
I am getting excited about the Grand Rapids Convention and think that I finally have everything that I need to take with me for the different events. I am only staying over Friday night and then driving back to Kalamazoo after the event Saturday evening. Kind of alternating between Red and purple in outfits. Red for the big ceremony just because it is such a fun color. Now all I need is a stash for shopping? Got awhile to gather that. Looking forward to putting some live faces on my email contacts. Margo
