Could it be... spring?

I'm afraid to say it out loud, but it was a wonderful day! I still have the creeping crud, so I didn't venture out, except to the backyard, but it was beautiful! I've got about a ton of dog poo in the back yard that needs to be picked up though, but the yard is still kind of mushy, so that's going to have to wait a bit.

I went out with the dogs this afternoon and threw the ball for Sophie until I thought my arm was going to come out of the socket, but she had such a good time I couldn't stop! The tennis ball is definitely an outdoor ball now though, it's totally covered with mud and dirt, no need to have that bouncing off the walls in the house! She wanted to play some more tonight, but I wanted to get some dinner before I went back to work. Toby must have spring fever too, he's been barking nonstop for about the last hour. I'm about ready to find the muzzle for him!

I'd like to get out in the yard and get the old leaves that didn't get raked last fall before the first snow, but I can't remember when they start to pick up yard waste. I sure don't need a bunch of lawn bags sitting around for weeks and weeks. Maybe it's best to let them dry out first. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Min, when you're ready to get that stuff raked up and want some help, let me know. God knows I can use the exercise and if I can help you guys out that would be great too. Just let me know. Missfit
