Pictures of Summer, Clemy, Sarah & D.J.

The weather today has been purrfect. Not too cold; Not too hot ..just purrfect!

I spent my evening taking the three dogs out for a short walk. - Clemy (The Weimaraner pictured in my previous post), and two Shih Tzus. - Sarah, aged 1yr, and D.J. aged about 10-11 months.

When I got back home, I opened up some windows and went into the kitchen to start dinner. While I was in there, the two little ones, - The Shih Tzus - Were going back & forth in the living room, looking out the windows. So, while I was waiting for the stove to heat up, I took some pictures of them, along with Clemy and Summer.

Those Eyes ~

No matter what my day was like, looking deep into these two eyes always gave me that "Everything is okay" feeling.

To have that with her was truly special. It was as if she knew my thoughts and I knew hers.

I miss you dearly, Twixy, and your beautiful eyes...

First Sign of Spring ~

A few weeks ago we had a snow storm, giving us about 8-14inches of snow! Waking up in the morning and seeing all that snow was incredible! Never in my life have I seen so much snow. Even Clemy - Our 6yr old Weimaraner - was excited about it!

Personally, I wish it snowed more often. I enjoyed every minute of having this snow. I was even crazy enough to spend a few hours outside to play in it! Though I didn't enjoy the cold I got afterward ..

As the result of all that snow melting, these little purple flowers have been blooming everywhere! They are so lovely.

So I took my walking companion, Clemy (Her full name is Clementine) and went out yesterday morning to take some pictures. Well, I'm sure by now you all know how I am about taking pictures. I could do it all day. - My two favorite things to capture is Nature & Pets.

To me, every single thing has it's own beauty. I see that when taking pictures ..which is why I enjoy it so much.

In Loving Memory ~

I would like to dedicate this next blog entry of mine to my Grandmother who passed away 5yrs ago this month, on the 19th. I've been thinking about her a lot these last few days..

I never got to meet her because she lived in Britain. My Father was stationed in Scotland where he had met & married my Mother. He left the service soon after and came back to the states with my Mother. They never were able to come back and visit.

I had received things from my Grandmother when I was little. Things like postcards, books, and a glass doll named Amy from the Little Woman novel. I remember that day clearly. I was around 7-8 years old at the time, and had been told by my Mother that Grandma was sending me a present. It seemed like weeks before I got it. I remember going to the post office with my Mother to get my package. It was the last thing my Grandmother sent me.

Looking back on it now, I wish I could have written a "Thank You" note to her, or at least asked if I could talk to her over the phone. In her notes to me, she seemed proud that I was her Granddaughter. Looking at them now hurts. It would have been nice to have a relationship with her meet her & chat. I guess when you are that age, you never think of those things till it's too late. I always assumed I would meet her some day..

Out of all the little things she had sent me, I have something from her that is truly special to me. I got my red hair from her! I come from a big family with six kids -Me being the oldest. Out of all of them, including my Mother & Father, I am the only one who has Red hair! So when ever I am asked about my hair, I always reply back that I got it from her. She also wrote poetry, which is something I like to do as well. To me, that is something special. Though I never met my Grandmother, I know she is always there.

In 08, after losing a friend of mine to a sudden death, I have came to realize a lot about what it's like to lose & mourn someone. I never really got to do that before, even when losing a family member. After going through some many tough times, I like to think that when someone dies, even though they are taken away from us, their heart, soul & spirit still lives on. I believe that so deep in my heart ..that my Grandmother ..and all our loves ones ..are watching over us ..maybe she is watching me write this? ..If so, I hope she knows I am thinking of her..
