There is nothing me, Bubba and Allie enjoy more than an afternoon nap.  I enjoy it because it gives that little pick me up for the rest of the day and evening.  I think the dogs enjoy it for the dreams.

I’m sure they dream at night, but I notice it more in the afternoon.  One of them will start moving their muzzles, then their feet.  They almost always make a puppy kind of bark.  This can go on from several seconds to several minutes.

I always wonder what they are dreaming about.  Since they are Jack Russell’s I think they are dreaming about the hunt and chase.  I’m sure they’re after some rabbit or fox.  I also wonder if they remember their dreams. 

I guess this will remain a mystery.

Blanket of White December 15, 2008

16_08_25-snow-scene_webI am not a fan of winter.  I don’t enjoy any of the out door sports or look forward to the below zero temps.  I need more day light than there is during winter.  I hate not being able to be outside in the gardens.

I do realize that the land needs a good rest and winter is when it gets to rest.  It’s like the gardens are sleeping under a blanket of white just waiting for the spring time.

That’s what I do too.  Curled up under a blanket inside I’m dreaming of the warm spring and hot summer.  I plan new gardens and think about what new seeds to grow.  I dream of a warm sun on my shoulders and the smell of dirt.

But for now that’s all it is, a dream.  The reality is there is six inches of snow covering everything and it’s a whole two degree’s above zero.  The land is resting and will be for another three months or so.
