Primitive Blessings

Guess it has been a little while since I blogged.  I believe in my last blog I wrote that winter was getting me down.  It still is.  We had more snow today.  Enough is enough.  Can't wait to see a daffodil poking its pretty yellow flower out of the ground.
I said in my first blog that I have a little 4 legged friend.  I haven't said much about her and shame on me.  Her name is Daisy, a shih tzu, and she is somewhere between 5-6 years old.  I got her when she was about 4 and I have had her almost a year and a half.  I have not had a dog in many, many years.  We have had cats for probably 25 years.  Don't know why but one day I decided I wanted a dog.  A friend gave her to me and I can't thank her enough.  So now I have a dog and a little dog at that.  We never had a small dog before.  But she has been the biggest blessing to us old folks.  She is such a good, well behaved dog.  My husband likes to say that we are attached at the hip.  I can think of worse things.  Anyway, here is a picture of her now.
This will be her before shot.  She will be going to the beauty shop on Friday.  I don't usually let her hair grow so long but for winter here in Western Pennsylvania it is necessary.  I'm not sure how short her hair will be when she comes home.  Either way, we will love her, even if she was bald.
Check back on Friday and I will post an after picture.
Happy Valentines Day out there to all my blog friends.

I think Punxsutawney Phil got up on the wrong side of the cage.  Here in Western Pennsylvania it has snowed almost continually since he declared that winter was over.  If I wasn't ready to head south a few weeks ago I sure am now.  Why is it that we like to see snow for Christmas.  But as soon as Christmas is over, I wouldn't care if we didn't see anymore until next Christmas.
This is when retirement certainly has its benefits.  It is nice to hear the weather forecast that predicts more snow and know that it really doesn't matter.  We don't have to worry about getting to work tomorrow morning.  I know hubby is enjoying his retirement.  Since we really have not had nice weather since his retirement, he has had a lot of time to read.  He used to read maybe one book a year.  He has been home for 6 weeks and is on book number 5. Guess it keeps him out of trouble.
Hope all my blogger friends stay warm and safe.
