Delightful Insanity

Winter Doggy Duds

T and I are selling our homemade goodies at this Huge 2-day craft show and of course we can’t not buy anything! Our first purchase is, of course, for the FurKids. These were just too darn cute to pass up!


Yes, yes. They are fleece scarves for doggies! We don’t usually put clothes on our FurKids, however I think accessories are much more acceptable, especially since Mister Ruka LOVES to wear them! 🙂  He’ll adore his new winter wardrobe and I’m sure Miss Jury will be at least a little excited, if not she’ll just wear it anyway to appease her crazy Moms. Hopefully I can get few good pictures of them with the scarves on before they start tugging each other around by them 🙂

V-Day escapades….

….or Wow! Are we odd or what?!

Well it’s a few days late, but I’ve been a rather busy girl.

Most celebrate Valentine’s Day with flowers and candy, a romantic dinner, or something of the like. How did we spend our day, you ask? Well in true delightfully insane fashion, we went and did something….well that would be considered a little strange by most people’s standards. This Valentine’s Day, T and I packed up a little picnic lunch, drove into the mountains close to our house to a little secluded area we found and had a picnic by a creek. No cards, no flowers, no chocolates. Just us.  Before you say “Aww how sweet”, let me just inform you that we live in Northeastern Pennsylvania, it is the month of February, the temperature was probably close to 35 degrees and we willingly sat outside by a semi-frozen body of water and had a picnic! Yes we are strange and unusual, but we LOVED it! We ate our lunch and then had a little creekside adventure. I feel like the luckiest person in the world to be able to have such a wonderful (and equally eccentric) woman to share my life with! I mean come on, how often do you find someone who is willing to spend a few hours with you out in the wilderness jumping on rocks through a creek and daring to taste chunks of creek ice?! Yep, I’m a lucky girl! 🙂 I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day no matter how you spent it. And let’s remember that everyday, not just Valentine’s Day, is a day to spend time with those you love!

Yep that's some chilly water! I still had to touch it! 🙂

A view of the creek upstream.

The ice on the rocks was lovely and glistening (very romantic, in a freezing your butt off kinda way) 🙂

I got as close to the edge as I could without slipping.

T ventured across the frozen rocks too!

Yes I am climbing through a fallen tree, and yes that tree is mostly in the air 🙂

Snow Puppies!!!

Well today it finally happened. Our backyard was (and is) finally covered with thick, luscious, powdery white snow! We’ve waited for this for a long time; since we haven’t had snow covering the ground since that weird snow storm in October. Needless to say Jury and Ruka were so excited to finally be able to frolic and play in the snow! This is their favorite time of year and they would gladly stay outside for hours if we would let them. Even Loki was watching the snow fall from his comfy spot on the windowsill; sadly I missed that picture opportunity. So of course I had to take lots and lots of pictures of our snow covered furbabies. These guys are two crazy German Shepherds 🙂

Snow Love ❤

There's a reason why Prancer is one of Ruka's (many) nicknames, ha-ha!

Ruka loves to cool his belly off in the snow!

Jury likes the snow!

Ruka snuggling with his Mommy after a long, hard play in the snow.

And since I missed his snow watching picture, here is Loki warming his fur by the fireplace on his favorite basket.

Yay for snowy goodness! 🙂
