Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air… ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yesterday dawned sunny, but very cold and very windy.

Cold day

I almost wimped out on the park, but I couldn’t deprive Sadie of the highlight of her week.  I bundled up and off we went.

On the way to the park we drove by what I call the spaceship house.

Spaceship house

I don’t know the story behind the spaceship, but I laugh every time I see it.

Sadie was more independent this week.   She led the way on walking path.


She urged me to walk faster.

She explored the fields.

She took off through the woods.

She came to get me when I dawdled behind her.

Happy Sadie

She enjoyed drinking the ice cold stream water.

And she relaxed in the cold water (brrrr).


She barked with joy.


Seeing Sadie having so much fun made me forget the cold.   Almost.


I’m making great progress on the Grape Ape socks.


Romeo has been helping me knit them.

Finally, a picture of Sadie. The dog takes napping seriously.

  1. I’m so glad you decided to go after-all. It’s so worth it to see such great Sadie pictures! I can’t believe she lay down in the cold water! Also glad to see Romeo again. Such a handsome boy. Have a nice week.

  2. Somehow I missed your last update. So happy to see a happy Sadie dog! As usual you have such an amazing environment and your photos are breathtaking. The socks? OH MY!! They are really cool…and Romeo is a card.

  3. Wow, Sadie looks a lot like my Maggie. And Romeo is a very handsome kitty.

  4. It’s so great to see Sadie being more independent and leader-ey! The socks look great and Romeo is SUCH A CUTIE!!! I hope he makes another appearance soon.
    give Sadie a kiss for me. :o)

  5. Sweet Romeo has the most beautiful eyes…it is nice to see him again. And how nice is that he helps you knit? lol Sadie sure knows how to enjoy every moment…I should take a lesson or two from her. The socks are looking wonderful…I love the name of that colorway. *hugs* 🙂

  6. It looks like Sadie had a wonderful adventure. The stream looks awfully empty with just one pup in it though. 😦 Romeo is beautiful. As for taking things seriously … there are three things a lab takes seriously: napping, eating and being silly!
