I started cleaning a press and discovered a box of sketches I had put away. I have always wanted to paint and some day I will but for now it is only odd bits I sketch and pretend to be an artist. I keep saying when I grow up (?) I will paint and draw.
Bob on a skateboard !
A box full of paper made me want to draw and doodle again. Have you ever had a nostalgic moment like this?
Irish weather is always a hot topic (excuse the pun) but when one day you wake up to a dark sky and thundering cold wind. The next day it is beaming sunshine and heat. It is no wonder Irish people are so besotted with the weather.
However I am discovering that there is another hot topic in our house – strange things that pop up in the garden.
See for yourself. I look forward to the many varied comments that will follow the pictures below.
I was weeding and discovered this gorgeous plant, weed??
Then this odd looking object. I wonder who or what planted it?
Thank you Shana

This past week, I was lucky, every day I went training the sun decided to warm us.
Here are a few pictures of Ellie and Judy, showing off. Ellie decided to let me climb the tree and retrieve the object,
While Judy collected it, then went for a swim, just in case I hid anything in the river bed.
Bob was missing at walk time early this morning. So we started searching his usual hideouts. However when, the kitchen, the hall and his favourite blanket beside the doors to the garden revealed nothing, we widened the search.
At last I found him, but his look had me wondering was today Monday or Tuesday.
What do you make or think of his expression
2017 is, so far, extremely mild though not particularly sunny. However, as the other two dogs in my life love walking, Bob is often enticed or dragged out for a walk.
I have noticed one definite thing about Judy, the black labrador, if there is water around she will find it.
I took her to Skryne today to walk across the fields. We started off well,
Then with head high and tail working like a helicopter blade she was off – water. Everyone could rest safe there was nothing else on the river.
I thought we would have a day off, though we did go for a walk. Obviously not far enough for Ellie. So she created her own bit of fun and wrecked havoc on Bob’s blanket.
