Spring has Sprung!

Pets and kids certainly do seem to be keeping me very busy lately. It was March Break for the kids this week in Ontario. What great weather we have had! It feels like May or June right now. I think it might be a bit early to get the sandals out, but I certainly am enjoying it !!!

Don't these Easter eggs look good enough to eat? I found them recently and couldn't resist them. I had to make it clear to my son and daughter that they are not really chocolate. You can buy some too at the Blackbird in Almonte, Ontario. You can visit the Blackbird online as well.

Well a year has just flown by.
Last year at this time Cider was having surgery on her leg.
We are happy to report that today is Cider's 1 Year Anniversary ~ Cancer free : )

My girlfriend from Toronto was visiting a few days ago.
Thanks so much for the pretty flowers Darla!

Sidney or "Sid the Kid" as his namesake is called seems to be fitting in very well. Sidney and Holly are still figuring out who will be the top feline. Sidney is currently only half of Holly's size (6 months vs. 1 year). I think he will keep trying for top spot. He is very laid back right now . . . but very determined too. Time will tell how his personality develops.

Ms. Holly wishes all the little bugs that have come to life during the last few days of warm weather were on the inside of the glass. I am fine with the way things are, lol.

Hope you have had an early Spring too!
Back to work on Monday : )

Hi Karen,

Glad Spring is on its way there! You do get tired of the cold weather.
So glad that Cider is doing well and love, your newest member of the family - Holly is so sweet.
The Easter eggs look very yummy and yes, it would be hard not to be tempted by the look of them.

Happy weekend

What beautiful photos and flowers! The kitties are just adorable and it's hard to believe that the insects have come out so early. Of course we're still with cold weather and cloudy skies. We had snow flurries just yesterday morning - hard to believe for Georgia.

Congrats to Cider. I hope he is enjoying watching the cats vie for top kitty:)

Hi Karen...Love the picture of Cider...he is kind of looking like - "Ah shucks, you want a picture of me?"
Your kitty is so lovely...such a sweet face.
Looking like spring and Easter over there!

Take care,
Hugs, Nancy
