Labradors [are] lousy watchdogs. They usually bark when there is a stranger about, but it is an expression of unmitigated joy at the chance to meet somebody new, not a warning. ~ Norman Strung
It was another gorgeous weekend here. When Sadie and I arrived at the park I realized that spring is finally here.
The stream is completely thawed. The little waterfalls are all flowing freely.
As always, Sadie jumped right in.
She barked with joy.
She enjoyed the ice cold water.
And she shook it off when she splashed it all over herself.
Sadie loves the water.
We also explored the woods. Sadie loves to run through the woods.
She loves it even more when there’s someone to chase.
We explored the fields.
In the middle of one of these fields is my favorite bench in the park.
I love to sit there and admire the view.
It was a fun day and when we arrived home Sadie passed out.
I finished the socks last night.
My intent was to get the stripes to match as closely as possible and look what happened:
They match perfectly. I’m still not sure how I pulled that off.
Full details of the socks are here.
I love this yarn so much that I’m going to use it again for the next pair of socks.
