Will You Be My Valentine?

Hi again!

Thought you all would  enjoy seeing what we've been up to here.

The last week or so has been quite snowy and also warm. We had about 8 inches fall in one day. (As a bunch of you probably have)

It's always more fun to watch snow fall from the sky with a puppy...

But the thing I love most about winter?
The icicles.

And also seeing the pup's inner wolf come out.

And action jump shots.

Catching snowballs...

It's mostly melted now. And our backyard is mud city.
We have to be careful not to run too much because we slip and fall or cave in the gopher tracks.
Which makes for more uneven ground and more fun for Mr. K to mow.

Anyway, enough of that. I'm not going to think of the work it'll take to level the backyard/ flatten it.

I'm going to think of better things.

I'm SUPER excited about my Spring plans for a container garden!!

I can see the meals now... plus the pretty flowers.

See, our town just had a seed swap and I got to partake of it. So, now I'm just trying to wait for the ground to thaw and the chance of frost to be nil and none before I start planting and going all garden gnome crazy on our backyard!

Yes. Garden gnomes are a crazy bunch. Just watch Amelie and you'll know what I mean.

Anywho...planting. Excited. Even have the Farmer's Almanac for 2015.

I get one every year, so it's not really a big thing.

But then I found a new magazine (to me at least) called New Pioneer and it's wonderful. All about how to make your garden better, stronger, more plentiful and a bunch of other tips for the home.

So, I am armed. And ready!

By the way, happy Friday the 13th. I'm not superstitious at all so today was just a gorgeous day.

Mochi the pup got to meet 11 people (yay we met our 10 people quota for the week) and we got to go to the Starbucks love meet (you can get a $5 menu item from 2pm onwards, which is basically a drink and a treat) and got to mail some things.

We live a very exciting life, full of the ordinary.

In two weeks I'll find out the news from a short short story writing contest I entered and I'll be another year older. (woo hoo!)

And oh yeah, tomorrow be Valentine's Day!

We love homemade cards from family and friends

Only one of my favorite holidays. *smiles* Day of love, whether you're single or otherwise.

Even Mochi has a Valentine...


Er, had.

See, she loved Mr. Monkey to pieces.


So sadly, her date has been removed and will be in surgery for a little bit before she can see him again.

I guess that's not too romantic.

Mr. K has something up his sleeve. All I know is I have to be ready to go out at six thirty tomorrow night.
And I get to wear a dress.
And I'll feel just like Kaylee wearing the fluffy pink dress from Firefly. ("Look at the fluffy one!")

Anyway, I guess what I'm trying to say is:

Happy Valentine's Day!
Until next time,
