Spring is Alive with Critters

Hopefully all goes well with this post, seems our internet service has been under the weather, too much rain or wind I'll never know. Today, so far so good. 


"There is not a particle of life which does not bear poetry in it."

(read that again)

Gustave Flaubert

Meet Happy go lucky, creator of the scavenger hunt-mania that nobody can resist. It's not about the candy parents, it's the hunt and find that matters. So seek yourself silly!

It's like a treasure hunt, in a way, and you're a detective.


For Artemis, fetching is what she lives for.

But don't we all?

"One can be the master of what one does, but never of what one feels." Gustave Flaubert

 You'll never convince Rusty that snow is gone for hopefully 8 months or more!
But hey, a dog can dream right?!

There's nothing like an evening by the fireside or the flowing sound of music waking up your soul. It's okay to spoil yourself. Visit far away regions of your memories, but don't linger too long, you have newer visions to add to your memories.

Let the game (and life) be ventured! 

M.J. Colewood 

Hello, I'm the neighborhood rabbit, you may have seen me on this blog before. What's truly special about me, is that children come merrily along and dress me for special occasions, or whatever they feel fit to do.

Guess this confirms that I'm truly the Easter Bunny. What do you think?

"The trouble with most of us is that we'd rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism."

Norman Vincent Peale

An expert flatterer.

The public wants work which flatters its illusions. 

Gustave Flaubert 

Go ahead admit, my parents created such a lovely creature.

Free for everyone!

The sweetest kisses left upon your lips, if you dare.

Dreaming permits each and everyone of us to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives.

William Dement

We long to make music that will melt the stars. - Gustave Flaubert

The feeling of art is not just creating it, but the way you feel once it's completed.

The best of a book is not the thought which it contains, but the thought which it suggests; just as the charm of music dwells not in the tones but in the echoes of our hearts. John Greenleaf Whittier

Thanks for visiting. Enjoy our new season, Stay safe.

and always take good care of you.
