I work with my dogs in all weather, if they don’t mind, neither do I. Some days are for sure more enjoyable than others, and some days are just so perfect, there is no need to ever go inside. But we are always grateful for the fresh air, and whatever Mother Nature throws our way.
And then you have days like today, where in the last week of April it is snowing but mostly melting as soon as it hits the earth. The grass is trying to grow while the garden herbs are confused and not sure what to do. And the mud was pretty much bubbling out from the center of the earth, the puddles just continued to grow by the hour.
I think we all tip toed into the slop, known as my yard, and we played politely for about three seconds, and then it all broke loose. Once mud splatter hit me in the face, and the dogs had mud dripping from their underbellies, well it’s kind of like we all dove in.
Today was maybe one of the most fun, and easily the messiest work session we have had in a long long time.
And as always there was a certain beauty to being covered in dripping thick earth and melting snow. Nancy
