See Beautiful

The past month has been surprising, much more like spring than winter. Thus, we haven't had much snow beauty but we've had lots of fun playing in the forest.

Although they scare me, the arrival of moose at our elevation has been a huge change to our world. They are beautiful, yet goofy. And, as I learned last week, they are also unpredictable and may charge at any moment if they feel that you're a threat to their calves.

While avoiding moose, this girl and I have played lots and lots in the forest, and she makes me smile, especially when she looks so happy!
This is one of her many cute looks that also makes me smile. She had just noticed her shadow and was turning back toward me after examining it.
Today, during our forest outing, we visited a spot that was K's favorite. It's the place where K's Banner photo was taken (upper right sidebar). When K had cancer, I placed two stones in a crevice of the boulders, symbolizing K and a friend's dog who was also nearing the end of her life. I placed those stones three years ago. They are still sitting in the same spot, now a tender memorial to both dogs. You can see them just below Shyla's nose.
And, perhaps the most beautiful sight of the month. It has been a month of many beautiful moments.

    PS - I was just thinking about you. I'm not feeling well and I went in to lie down for a few minutes. Otto came in, jumped up on the bed and then laid across my stomach - all 120# of him!! I laughed and laughed. I thought of how gentle your dogs are (or how gentle I imagine them to be) and Otto made me laugh even more!

  22. Your dogs make my heart melt and put a huge smile on my face, especially the last one. I wish we could have dogs - but it;s not possible because of health reasons in the family. It always makes me a bit sad - but thankfully there are my friends' dogs!
    I love the rocks you put up in K's memory and the other dog's. She will always have a very special place in your heart.
    The photo of the moose is wonderful!!!

  23. All of your photos are amazing -- but we agree with our mom -- that last one is the BEST!!! So totally beautiful!
