Welcome Spring!

We are anxiously awaiting spring at my house. Perl has been on the deck watching for it this morning.  This is her third week with us and Miss Heidi and I love her!      Everyday she makes me laugh and brings me so much joy. Heidi has adjusted very well and I seem to know when she needs a timeout from puppy antics.  I have finally been able to keep my hands off Perl for short periods of time and get some chores done.

I always enjoy my Easter decorations  because they remind me that spring is right around the corner.

If you look closely, you can see Miss Heidi's sweet  face in the mirror.  I think that's called "photo bombing".

The bandanna sums it up, don't you think?  My friend gave it to her this week and it matches her colors perfectly!

Enjoy the first day of Spring tomorrow!

It's All About PERL!

Perl arrived last Saturday and this has been the most amazing week!  I have had so much fun just holding her, taking naps with her and laughing at her cute little antics.  She's doing great with her potting training but we're having some issues with  sleeping in her crate at night.  Her vet says she has "separation anxiety" and I  am suffering from the same issue.  I can't wait to get up in the morning and take her out of her crate.  She and Miss Heidi have adjusted very well to each and Heidi even plays with her occasionally.  For the first few days, she  ignored her completely but she's coming around.

I had forgotten how much fun it is to have a puppy and it's been quite a while since I've had one with a tail!

We've had extremely cold weather and snow this week but next week is supposed to be more "springlike".  It will be so nice to get outside with the corgi girls.

Spring Cleaning and A Recent Puppy Picture

Last weekend when everyone else was watching the Super Bowl, I decided to do some much-needed spring cleaning in my dollhouse. I removed all the furnishings and applied three coats of satin polyurethane to the wood floors and cedar shingles.


The kitchen is now decorated for Easter and all the eye dying supplies are on the table.  Of course, it's helpful to have corgi supervision.

There's kitty mischief going on in the bathroom.  Do you see the one playing in the toilet?  I'm not sure if this corgi is an innocent bystander  or part of the mischief.

I had fun rearranging the nursery.  All the tiny dolls and toys are so cute.

And, I just had to share this recent picture of my beautiful, blue-eyed puppy, Perl.  I'll be picking her up on February 24.

Coming Soon To Our House...

Perl is the puppy closest to the camera.

Miss Heidi and I will welcome a new fur family member on February 24.  After a few weeks of searching and calling breeders, I finally found someone who has puppies.  I am getting a Cardigan Welsh corgi. She is a very light blue merle and the breeder thinks she's going to have those beautiful blue eyes that some merles have. I  have named her "Perl" which is the Welsh spelling of the name Pearl.

Heidi is a senior girl (she is six months younger than Hanna) and our house is too still and quiet.  I'll probably be writing in a couple months "what was wrong with a still and quiet house".  But for now, I am so excited!

As I reflect back on 2014, I have many happy memories of traveling, spending time with my friends and family, and riding with the top down on my new (to me) car.

Having to let Hanna go to the bridge was my saddest memory. Heidi and are are adjusting nicely and spending lots of quality time together.  I am so thankful for her! I don't plan to add another corgi as long as I have Heidi.  

I don't know about you, but I'd like to fast forward to spring now.  I planted about forty tulips last year and can't wait to see them blooming.  January and February are always long and dismal to me. I didn't read much in 2014 but I hope to in the next few months.  If you have any suggestions of  "good reads", please forward them to me.

Happy New Year to you and your families!
