Snowball Teddie!

I just have to share this! This little fellow (a Yorkie) is such a joy - he is just too cute sometimes! Oh, mind you, there are times when he and the big guy (our Border Collie) get together that they get on my last nerve.... but when it's just him and me ... well, He's my buddie!

We had major snow yesterday .... today the sun is shining and the snow is melting. He was out on the deck earlier this morning and had his head buried in the snow and came up totally white!
Here they are a few pics of his morning escapade!

Covered in snow balls!

I had to put him in the sink and spray warm water on him to melt the snow. He couldn't walk ... he was jumping around like a rabbit.... quite funny!
Here he is after ... getting dried off.

"Ah! Thanks Mom!" --- do you suppose that is what he is saying?
And here he is now, after that big ordeal - resting in the sunshine!

Hope you got a chuckle out of this pictoral view of "A Morning In The Life of Teddie"

Blessings and hugs! Ruthie

Happy New Year!

Greetings everyone!
Over the past month I discovered a new-to-me "artform" called zentangling.... the resulting "doodles" are called zentangles. [Zen = relaxation; tangle = doodle]

Go figure! Doodling as an art form! However, it IS very relaxing and releasing; and peaceful! I'm lovin' it! Today I am going to share some of my creations with you! Hope you enjoy your peek here! May the New Year be good to you!

Here's my hand and then one with Madison's 7 year old hands!

I love to draw hearts so of course I've done a few of these ... I like this one the best!Next you see a couple of "winter" flowers .... I so love spring and wait each year for the flowers to pop out of the ground!

Christmas was so awesome this year! Roads were great for travel - we spent time with all the family! As I reflect on the Birth of Jesus I have to think about the reason He came to earth ... His purpose was to go to the cross for me - for you! Christmas began that great journey of LOVE. How thankful I am!
The rain pelted down one night while we were at my daughter's - all that was left of the snow in the morning were a few white pathces here and there. That picture inspired this "doodle"!
I try to give a title to every doodle but just couldn't come up with one for this so .... it remains "un-named"!
This next one has to be my favorite - I love adding color!
We watched the fireworks in Halifax on TV at midnight New Years Eve! Of course, this doodle was inspired by that! I started it just before midnight and finished it on the 1st of January 2010!

Then yesterday - January1, 2010 - I took the tree down and put away all the decorations; what a sense of satisfaction when that is accomplished for another year! When order is restored!Inspiration hit me again!

All my storage of "stuff" is upstairs - did you notice the "stairs" in this one?
I hope you enjoyed you're journey here today! Have a blessed New year!
May you're hearts be filled with Peace ... in the midst of all the pieces!!!
