Spring (or maybe Summer) has arrived :-)

The unseasonably warm streak is continuing - the temps for last 5 days have reached the low to mid seventies! Wow. The daffodils are blooming about 2 weeks early and are beautiful

It is nice heading outdoors without throwing on all the winter gear first. Of course the dogs have to re-acclimate to the warmer weather - I think they'd be happy if it stayed in the 50's or below all year 'round!

I got my bike out for the first time of the season last week. Harnessed up the dogs and went for a ride. Kenzi LOVED it. As soon as I said "let's GO!" she leaned into that harness and pulled. She pulled me for 3/4 of a mile :o She is a very strong and thinks pulling is great fun. Kipp is kind of "meh" about the whole idea. He runs along, but doesn't pull. It's like he's saying, "I'll come along if this is what we're doing, but only because I don't want to be left home" I only take him when we bike over to the barn. But I'll do more with Kenz because she absolutely loves it.

The downside of the gorgeous weather is that my knitting has slowed waaaaaay down. When it's cold, damp and dark outside then it's easy to curl up and knit the time away. When it's 75 degrees and light until almost 8 pm then I stay out and get outdoor chores done or play with the dogs.
