It's in the Air!

 Since the weather has been so kind to us lately,
Dad thought we should steer clear of the wintery message
and make a new header that was less white and more colourful.

This is what I'm staring at as we arrived at the hill tonight.

 I still was very much interested in Mr. Bionic
and all it takes is a good throw!

 Some people say my middle name is Licker,
but I think it's Speed,
up the hill and

 down the hill,

 digging feverishly for the orb to pop up from the grass...

and when it's making me spin uncontrollably as the ball flips into the air.

Meeting Ellie on top of the hill was a bonus,

 because we charged up and down the hill after her big stick.
Notice who has Mr. Stick...ha ha ha!

Just wanted you to know that I had a blast on the hill this evening
and they say winter is coming,
but knock on wood
maybe we'll have a mild one this year
like we did a few years back...fingers crossed.

  1. Sophie darling, your world is exquisitely beautiful! I love the new header. I know winter may be coming, but I'm voting for spring instead. I can hardly wait to see your spring photos.

  22. My native upbringing says, enjoy this mild winter. It won't get bad at all. Just a few cold spells and maybe a snow storm in March. But if you look at the squirrels this year, you'll notice a very thin and scraggly tail. They use the fluffy tail to keep warm in the cold winter months and they just don't need it this year.
    So run and play.... enjoy the little bit of snow but expect to see crocus extra early.

  30. Love your new header Sophie. Williamthelurcher asked me to say Hello and wonders how you manage to keep Mr. Bionic looking so new (or do your dad's buy a new one without you knowing!).

  31. Mr. Bionic is indestructible...that's why Daddy is so surprised that this ball just may make it to 2013! wink wink

  33. Hi Sophie
    I came looking just special for you. I thought I had missed a post- and sure enough I did. You dads make so much magic with their camera. All the colorful skys and oceans and grasses- and you of course.
    I love that photo of you in the whirlwind circle. Sometimes that is how I feel.
    Your dads photos so many times show my feelings inside.
    Thank you Sophie for being there- we all need you and your dads so much
    love
