Netflix Night

This animated feature film is enjoyed globally.
It has a couple of different names,
for me it was "Leap!"

Yes, the story line is predictable
But really well done
and every frame was a joy to watch.

Walking in the Wacky Woods

We were excited to get out for a real walk.
Lately it's been frigid and iced over.
Yesterday we managed a short, cautious stroll.
Today, we put on our Wacky Sculpture Park I.D. 
and took to the trails.
The pupster has her own membership
But, she allows me to wear the tag.

Blue Dog Tree
Winter has expressed ItSelf

along the trail

Nobody home.

There were workmen out doing repairs, even creating a new trail,
and some of the art installations are being moved around.

Only one other pup walking a person.
Happy dogs
with tails held high.

Des Peres Park - (girl & dog share a walk with you)

No, we are NOT "walking the plank."
We like to add extra steps to our walk - so, we check out the lake,
No ducks today.
The ice is almost melted.
Des Peres Park is kinda close to home.
It's especially good for a stroll, if we are going to do chores afterwards.
It sits in a busy neighborhood.
There's a Lutheran Church kinda hiding it from view.
If you're there at lunch time, you might hear a bell concert from the church tower.
Here's the reason we took our teeny camera for a walk with us.
If we look closely - we can see the trees are beginning to celebrate.

Saw This Movie

From Netflix

  It took a little extra time to arrive
worth the wait
People supporting one another
being family
(without matching DNA)
touched me
allowed me to feel I belong in this world afterall
love & love,

Duck Watching

Taken on a warmer day.
She is interested in ducks.
They seem mysterious, the way they float,

A few days ago there were several skaters on the frozen solid pond.
A family playing their own form of hockey.
Older and younger generations
sharing the moment.

We found ourselves a good view
 and watched with great interest.
Two days later, pond mostly thawed, 
  ducks were close enough to shore 
for us to listen to their conversations.

Pup is happy with winter,
walking, any kind of adventure
many kinds of treats.

makes me smile

I am participating in a 365 photo group.
(golly, will I EVER create a daily camera habit?)
The prompt for today was Mail.
I could not enter this picture because I did not take it.
I created - and mailed postcards
and this picture is proof 
of arrival somewhere in the world.
Makes me happy.
Speaking of Happy

Happy New Year to YOU!

love & love,
