What IS That?

I awoke this morning to see something strange, alien, foreign, peeping through my bedroom window! The apparition startled me into a fully awakened state. What IS that?


Sunlight!!!


Unfortunately, this break in the weather is temporary. There is another storm front headed this way, with more heavy rain, thunderstorms and potentially severe weather.


Ah, well. Until it gets here, I'm going to enjoy the sunshine! If it holds through this afternoon, my four year old granddaughter, the dogs and I will play outside for a change. Her mother has been called to jury duty, and I am her afternoon care giver for a few days. Pray for me! "Sweetie Pie's" energy level is enough to wear the horns off a brass billygoat!


Speaking of dogs: Snuggles, my granddaughter's adopted Sheltie, about whom I wrote here, and here, is doing just fine. She survived the potentially fatal treatment for heartworms and has been given a clean bill of health. She can now cavort and play without restrictions.

As pretty as sunshine is, it kind of hurts the eyes doesn't it when it has been hiding for so long. Don't guess we will have a chance to get use to it. Don't forget your sunscreen today. Have fun with that baby.
I am so glad that Snuggles is doing well. Hate those heartworms.

The sun is coming here too. After five cloudy and rainy days. Yay!

And here, I was so sure you were going to say that it was a raccoon. They must be on my mind or something. ;)

Great news about the pooch! :)

Sun was mainly bashful here on Bull Shoals Lake but at least rain ran away for another day while our carpet layer finished the job, and the nursery planted our trees.

But our house still looks naked with the loss of seven trees and severe surgery on ight others.

enjoy the light, sunlight.:)

Grandchildren bring sunshine with them, AND you can give 'em back.

So glad about Snuggles...our dog had to have heartworm treatment and it about did her in. But she survived and still lives. She is about 14 years old and Does Not cavort any more!

Funny! We can see the sun through the blowing snow/rain/dust - but that's spring in NV.
