An Unusual February Weekend



















The news about the weekend is all over. The birds have been tweeting about it (if you don't believe me, check out their Twitter page) and the squirrels have dragged out their lawn chairs. Even the weatherman agrees.

No snow this weekend. The temperatures will ascend into the 50's for the first time in months. After what we've been through, it will almost feel balmy. Like our tropical imagination vacation from a few days ago.

Indy is ready to roll. He senses a trip to the river in this forecast.

But Bogey remains distracted.

"Birds? Did you say something about birds?"

Hope the weekend is looking good for you, too!

Those two little stinkers are so darn cute! Yes, it seems like spring is here today!

Tammy said...

Happy weekend to the whole family, and glad to hear you're going to get out and enjoy it!

Well, we all have our priorities, after all! Glad you'll see some warmth after all the cold stuff. Enjoy your river walk with Indy!

We are going to have a warming trend here in Maryland. Maybe Spring is going to come early??

I can SO relate! We are expecting 40's here by week's end and I can't hardly wait! Daisy and Jasper got their first real time at the dog park after a major cold spell and we were there 2 hours! Tired dogs. Happy owner!

The birds are tweeting here too! Maybe they know spring is on it's way. That's my hope anyways. Happy hopping!

We are having nice weather here too for a change. Of course, "nice" is relative...I would prefer 75 degrees with no wind, but I guess 50s will have to do until summer can get here.

I love the sound of melting snow in February.

Sounds like a wonderful day!
It was around the 50's here - which makes great horse riding weather :)

Enjoy! We're looking for nicer weather soon too. Kelly is enjoying chasing squirrels.

That sounds lovely. Hope you get out and enjoy it!
13 degrees out up here today but the sun is out so that makes us happy!

Just lost our comment. We'll try again. Anywhooo, looks like Spring is just around the corner. Hey, we thought Bogey looked fab in his rasta pirate hat. Indy placed and has a cool prize awaiting him for our costume contest. Come on over and send your mailing add. to us.
Smooches,
BRD & Hootie

Indy's quite the handsome schnauzer! I was reading through a few of your older posts and I'm glad to hear he's doing well now. Thanks for stopping by on the blog hop!
