"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

LouLou and Jack

Here are some wonderful people who are a part of the Reinwood Corgis family.

This is Lou, a firefighter and paramedic on Cape Cod, and his new little shadow, "LouLou." Lou's 15 year old beloved Corgi, "Welshkins" recently went to the Rainbow Bridge and left a Corgi shaped hole in his family's heart which they opened up to sweet LouLou. They already love her dearly. I'm sure Welshkins is watching over them all with a big Corgi smile.

Meet Ashley and Andrew from Rhode Island. A fantastic couple who fell in love with "Jack" as soon as he began giving them kisses and wiggling his little bunny butt at them. I think Jack chose them rather than the other way around. Here he is after Andrew tired him out before the trip back home.

While it is so so so hard to let them go, I know that both of these Corgis are going to have such happy lives. ♥ CS

Sprouting Seeds

Do you like sprouts? Have you ever tried them? I love sprouts on sandwiches, wraps or in a good stir fry or salad. Sure, you can buy sprouts in the grocery store, but why not grow your own? They are inexpensive, fun, clean, fresh, nutritious and delicious. Plus, if you have been snowed in all Winter and have been dying to get something fresh from the garden, sprouts are a perfect little something to grow indoors all year round.

I bought this little Burpee Seed Sprouter. It is just the right size for us, but you can surely buy bigger set-ups or make your own. This one comes with 3 seed packets: broccoli sprout seeds, mung bean sprout seeds and zesty sprout seeds (which are a combination of broccoli, radish and cress.)

You just spread a small amount of seeds over the clear trays of the seed sprouter.
Rinse the seeds thoroughly under the tap.
Next, you simply stack the trays, placing the shallow tray on top. Slowly pour water through the shallow tray into the seeds below and drain the excess water from the base tray. You just need to rinse and drain the sprouting seeds twice a day and in 2-7 days your sprouts will be ready to eat. Sprouting seeds can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days.

Of course you may want to keep the nosy Corgi out of the seed sprouter. ♥ CS

Happy Easter!

Here is Nadine who lives at Mary Elizabeth's house. We all wish you a joyous, blessed, Happy Easter! All of the Reinwood Corgis are hoping the Easter Bunny stops by. I think they have a pool going to guess who can herd him into the corner and grab all of his eggs first. (Remember to keep the chocolate away from the Corgis!) xo xo -CS ^..^
