While for most of the day was spent indoors, in many cozy layer, laying around reading my birthday present from Bridget and the kids
it became apparent a puppy must still be a puppy. So every now and again it was bundle up and head out to the yard for what I thought was a short bathroom break, but what turned out to be a not so short game of chase.

Then of course I will be one of those people that get it in the mail and not use it for months because I'm afraid of messing it up. The other great space I came across involves a really great blogger Alicia who's collaborated with another talent Heather to come up with Noticing project. The idea of seeing past what is right in front of you, noticing the interesting things around us daily. It's such a great idea, if it wasn't so darn cold outside. It seems to me that Mac had the best idea of all
