If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

Easter Sunday

We don't really celebrate Easter in the House of Dirt and Rocks but b and I had a lovely day nonetheless. We spent it quietly doing the things we enjoy doing...being together and working on assorted projects.

In the middle of the day I took Pupzilla for our Sunday afternoon walk. This time it was much warmer and the daffodils were mostly gone but there were plenty of other spring colors to see.

We also saw lots of tulips.

And then Pupzilla got very hot...

and had to take a dip.

We saw this guy leaning up against a tree.

And this guy swimming in the creek.

Then we headed back home. Pupzilla was walking very slowly and I was taking pictures and listening to my iPod when b drove up behind us. It seems we were taking so long that he was worried Pupzilla couldn't make it (she is not a hot weather dog and fades as soon as the temperature goes above 65). He drove us over to get some ice coffee (Pupzilla got a cold glass of water) and then we all went home.

What a great day! Pupzilla must have had a ball!

The Boy is not a warm weather pup either. I am going to schedule another Furminator treatment for him. Our vet said that it takes about two years for a northern dog's coat to adjust.

What lovely pictures! I am so excited to see flowers popping up here in PRU City, too. I'm quite ready for spring, thank you very much!

Beautiful pictures, Brig! And yay for pictures of Pupzilla. Poor guy looks so hot. But I'm happy he got to take a dip...that is so cute.

I love the intense blue of the sky, and the colors of the flowers, too.

Oh, the flowers are so pretty! It's still in the 40s here, so no flowers yet. :(
