Just a quick little post...

 


It is fun getting a pic like this to start the day off right...Lorelei never takes a serious picture.  I think it is good that she does not take herself too seriously.


Here we have Copper's adoption photo, and how he is now.  Not sure if this photo is real new...but you get the picture.  I look at that adoption photo and could almost cry.  Look what a little boy he was.  We were over there Sunday for lunch...it had been a while since we saw him, but he was tickled to see us.  Sarah and Jeremy came to eat an to pick up Lorelei.  Copper was glad to have his tribe all together.  He would play, he would lay and watch us all, as in the photo below.


I know I have posted a similar pic but this one was taken Sunday.  Anyway, he would play, and watch us, and then every so often he would come to the table where we sat talking, and he would go around it to check on each of us.  He would nose in under our arm, or hand, till we had to acknowledge him.

I think I told you he sasses his mom...he does not like to be told no.  He will stop whatever he is doing, but he talks back.  I did not notice, but his mom said he sasses Lorelei, too.  I honestly think he recognizes that she is more his age than ours.

***********

I was going to burn up some of the limbs, etc that has fallen in our yard.  And clean off the flowerbeds good, but soon as I headed out the door to do that, the wind started just whistling.  I did pick up a lot of sticks, but rather than do the burning, I broke down boxes.  

That is about it from this little corner of the world...I am going down in the basement to check on laundry, and maybe sew a stitch or two more.  Hope everyone is having a good week.

That's a hilarious picture of Lorelei! She sure is growing up fast.
So is Copper. I like the "before and after" pictures of him.

Love the pic if Lorelei. Copper is going to be a big boy, I love his eyes.
The forestry dept is doing a controlled burn close to us and the smoke has been bad today.

These are all such cute photos! Copper was such a tiny little thing. I will never get over those adorable ears!

How cute is that picture of Lorelei?? My goodness she is getting so big.
Love the other pics. Animals sure are smart.
I went out and did a little yard work today too. It did get breezy.
Have a great week!!!!

Copper has changed so much!
I need to get outside to pick up all the sticks and branches around here too. So much as fallen this winter. Lots of stuff for my fences.

I love that fun picture of Lorelei! The baby picture of Copper is so cute. Yes, he certainly has grown. It sounds like he has a real cute personality too!

I'm so glad Copper has a happy home now. He sure must feel loved. That Lorelei is a sweet girl. She has always made me smile. Seems like every time I start outside to work the wind starts blowing. I can't keep the sticks and limbs picked up.

Love the picture of Lorelei and her kitty. It is ALWAYS good to have a sense of humor about yourself.

Copper is such a good dog. He knows he is the lucky one to have such a great family to love him.

Lucky Copper to have such a good family and vice versa. I love my Millie so much when she tries to talk to me. More sewing sounds good!

That first photo is a hoot! I didn't realize she was no longer the little girl you have on your side bar. πŸ’–

That is a great and fun photo of Lorelei. Copper has grown so much from the time he was adopted and he sounds like a great dog. I missed having my own pet dog.

Hello,

Cute photos of Lorelei and the furbabies. It is funny when the dogs talk to humans.
Take care, have a great day!

I love the picture of Lorelei and the kitty. I am sure there are times I have a similar expression when Wickett and I eye each other close up.

I agree with you, if we took ourselves too seriously, we would not see the joy of that first photo with Lorelei and her kitty. Absolutely precious and thank you for the smile Rose. Also, lovely photos of Copper. Sweet pup! I haven’t done any yard work because of the weather, way too cold. Yesterday would have been a good day but we went for a nice long walk instead. Maybe today :)

Marie Smith said...

It is good to see Lorelei. She’s a sweetie for sure!

Ruth Hiebert said...

It is a good idea not to do a burn when it is windy. We have had a lot of wind recently as well.

Small City Scenes said...

That Copper dog sure is a silly and fun loving dog. Glad L has such a good sense of humor. I try never to be serious. LOL

Oh my goodness Lorelei is getting so big, where did the years go! I can’t wait to get to cleaning out my garden beds. It is way too wet right now. We had some strong winds the other day it felt like we could be blown away.
