Hello there everyone,
Up until recently we have been blessed with a mild, pleasant winter. The temperatures have been glorious. Although our world is dry at the moment, flowers still find a way to cheer us up. The little planter in our driveway is sporting some happy floral faces...
However, there is nothing quite like a beautiful bouquet to lift one's spirits...
On Saturday we had a surprise party for Miss "J"s birthday.
Everything was beautifully prepared for the occasion.
Although she had many guests, the canines were also part of the welcoming committee...
They waited patiently for everybody to arrive and settle in...before introducing themselves...
All the guests were well in time for the unsuspecting victim.
Balloons and streamers too.
...and then the birthday girl arrived to everyone's delight...
In true South African style, we had a 'braai' while the dogs scouted around for 'nibbles'
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Miss "J"!!!
We wish you many more happy years. What a joy it is to have you in our lives.
We are so proud of you!
On a different note, our little Lexi is also growing up fast...
Isn't she gorgeous!?
She and Toby remain inseparable - cuddling up to me at any opportunity. The mornings, particularly, have some special bonding moments.
(Whose bed is it anyway?)
I know this is a random post...but it helps me to simply keep writing.
(I know you don't mind)
A cold front is expected to wave its chilly wand over our country this weekend.
Keep warm everybody!
...And have a happy week.
Sending lotsaluv to all our friends around the world,
