Miggs Enjoying The Sun


Yesterday was nice and sunny and not as cold as it has been . Miggs and I went for a walk and played in the back yard . Then I took photos of her playing in the snow .

                                      She looks like a big teddy bear or a lion when she runs  with all that fur flying !

                                           Miggs really puts on a good show for me to practice my action shots !

                             I have a  funny story I want to share with ya all that happened to me this morning !

         Our regular readers of our blog know that there is one birds return for me that spells spring is here , right  ?

                                                                                well get this lol !

The weather this morning is remarkably warm -1°C or 30°F compared to how cold it has been this is tropical , so when I got up this morning I did my usual morning routine, get my tea read blogs and so on then after  whilst I was in the bathroom brushing my teeth I looked out the window at our blossom tree that is in the back yard just to see some birdies , well I had to do a double take as the morning was still dusk like , I thought I was going bonkers , I looked again and to my eyes saw a bird  silhouette that I only see in the spring and I thought ok ,  I know ya want spring to be here badly but come on this is nuts , so I went to get my bird binoculars opened the back door found the birds in the tree and HOLLY MOLLY !! I was right 5 count them 5 Robins in our tree . Now how about that wake up call  . I thought to myself  WHAT ?? you got to be joking , already ? mother nature is out of whack for sure now , but nice to have the Robins here already . So with a smile on my face I continued my morning with Miggs and we enjoying a long walk  listening to all the birds chirping with glee and flying here and there with  happiness of the warmer temps .

                                       Could it be possible that we are to get an early Spring ?  I hope so !

                                                                   Until next time my friends !

Well I like the way you think! An early spring would be great. You have to wonder where those robins have been and why they are back so soon.

I hope so too! I had a flock of them in the yard yesterday!! I was all happy and thrilled for this happy sign, and when I told my husband about it he just said "they never left!" Wah, Wah, he burst my bubble and I left the snow shovel by the front door! Our puppy, would love to run and play with Miggy! Can we set up a playdate??

I hope that it is a sign of spring coming soon for you!! Miggs will be disappointed, but you won't!! xx

Wonderful photos! They're all great. Dogs are fantastic to practice fast speed photography and action shots.

ROBINS? You're kidding me? What have they been smoking? LOL... It's much MUCH too early for them to be returning.

I find it so funny that it does feel so tropical at -1. Love thar the robins showed up. There is hope for spring now.

I don't think I will holding my breath here in Michigan for an early spring. We are expecting another snow storm tomorrow and then again this next mid week. Snow, snow and more snow. Love your Pics!

Fabulous action shots and that Miggy, she sure loves to play in the snow doesn't she? What a sweetheart! Nice start to the morning with a surprise like that too.

Love the pictures of Miggs playing in the snow. She's so cute! I wonder if the robins have been around all winter. It's quite early for them to be coming back for spring - early or not. It would thrill me to see them though. Enjoy the weekend.

Terrific action shots of Miggs, particularly that fourth one. It really does have a lion sensibility about it...

Miggs looks like she is sure having so much fun!
Robins are sure a good sign, for sure.

Karen said...

Migs certainly has fun in the snow! And a bonus, they stay so clean:)

Interesting to hear about your parents:) My dad was in the merchant navy.

Miggs has the right idea on HOW to enjoy the snow, Elaine. How many of us can recall running and playing in it as children and not wishing it were gone? While i have not seen robins yet, they often hang around here in the winter as it's usually not as cold and snowy as in recent weeks. Glad you spotted some in your area.
Really like the new header and title too!

Gail said...

Miggs certainly knows how to have a great time.

I would like to have more moisture before spring. We are very dry and that is not good.

Beautiful pictures.

I like the photos, but I am gobsmacked by the robins.
