"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Happy Valentine's Day!

We woke up this morning to snow and sleet. It is still coming down out there. The Corgis moved from their little warm spot near the wood burning stove to have a quick frap (frantic random act of play) in the icy snow. Indy was so funny out there. He was just spinning around. Click the photo to enlarge. You can see he is in action! This was taken just before Bailey pounced on him. The next thing I knew, they were both ready to come inside and their little noses were sniffing the air. They smelled the 'heart shaped French Toast' I was making for breakfast. Whenever I make French Toast, I think of Harley, Indy's sire. Once, when Harley was visiting for a few days from my friend Mary Elizabeth's house, I found him standing with all four paws on the kitchen table. He had gobbled down an entire plate of French Toast and was licking the last of the maple syrup. Harley was a Champion, who quite often when showing would jump right up onto the judging table. I guess that morning he decided to use his powers for evil :) Little stinker that he was. These little Corgis come into our lives for such a short time, but surely hold our hearts forever. My Valentine's Day wish for all of us is that we be truly present in every blessed moment and never take for granted all of the loved ones in our lives....

Happy Valentine's Day! -CS ^..^
