GOOD, GOOD BOY ! ! !

Pacco is a GOOD boy !

I went hiking in the fields

with the THREE dogs

EARLY this morning ...

Of course,

the FOUR of us leave together

but I ALWAYS end up walking

by MYSELF

cause the GOOFY TRIO

just takes off ...

On my way BACK,

mumbling to myself

about how BAD-mannered

my canine PACK was,

I looked up

and

SMILED ...

NO better way to be FORGIVEN ...

Just show up

with a PITYFUL face

and a GIFT ...

My Pacco SURE is

a GOOOOOOOD boy !

ONCE OF THESE DAYS THESE BOOTS ...

A girl NEEDS

one GOOD pair of SEASONAL

Doc Marteens BOOTS ...

at least THIS girl here does ...

NO high-heels,

NO fancy straps,

NO open-toes

OR

delicately laced shoes

can TOLERATE

my country life-style ...

My boots NEED TO be made

for walking,

CAUSE that's just what

they'll DO !

Mud OR chicken poop,

snow or dirt,

a girl's gotta be STYLISH

never the less ...

COME MEET MY NEW DAUGHTER ...

You know that I have

a little SOFT SPOT for

hairless PLASTIC baby dolls ...

Even though this one

is a BIG girl,

she will NOW be

the QUEEN of my orphenage ...

She came in the mail

in a LARGE box,

NO return address ...

And she is BALD !

She looks like a

MINIATURE-sized

store display MANNEQUIN ...

3 feet TALL

and

made in Canada !

Someone out there

SURE knew how to

make my heart FLUTTER ...

She is DIVINE !

EVERYTHING IS OLD ...

On my way back from

a SKI morning in Vermont,

I stopped by the food store

and picked up this NIFTY

grocery shopping bag ...

Isn't it the COOLEST !

Love its DESIGN,

its vibrant COLORS

and above all,

LOOOOOVE what it says !

What a HAPPY day

this day has been SO FAR ...

There is no GREATER feeling

than Spring creeping in

after 5 long winter months ...

Doesn't get BETTER than this ...

Today,

I could MOVE dinosaurs with one HAND

and

a SMILE !

MISTER MOON SHOW ...

The FULL MOON sure was beautiful

yesterday night

but it did NOT seem much bigger to me

than usual ...

BUT its brightness was UNBELIEVABLE !

Walking through the forest on SNOWSHOES,

it felt like the ENTIRE scene was lighted

by a single GIANT spotlight ...

pretty AND cold night ...

you could SEE and HEAR your breathe

while walking ...

clear AND breathtaking night

DIPPED in BLUE dye ...

EERIE and MYSTERIOUS ...

One of these FEW moments

when you REALLY feel

you are PART OF IT ALL ...

It was nice to KNOW

you were ALL there too,

watching MISTER Moon Show

on the BIG black screen ...

BACK TO THE FUTURE ...

Boyfriend took

SPRING FORWARD

to the word last Sunday ...

FELL on his back

CHANGING THE TIME

on our old grand-father clock

and broke TWO RIBS ...

NO fun,

TONS of pain

and 9 hours spent at the EMERGENCY ...

He is now ailing in bed ...

I am now the MAN of the house ...

From A to Z ...

Let's start with taking

two LOADFULLS of wood INSIDE

for the stoves ...

Then, gotta SHOVEL

some of THAT snow off the roof

before it caves in ...

WISH we could turn back

the CLOCKS ;-)

Monday, March 14, 2011

Brrrrrrrr ...

I want SPRING

and

I want it NOW !

TRYING

to stay COLD-headed

here ...

Working HARD at melting

a few square-feet of SNOW

with my HEAT-GUN

so I can just stand BARE FOOT

on the GRASS

and wiggle my TOES

at WINTER ...

THE TIDE IS LOW ...

Today

I am in a kitschy MERMAID

kinda mood ...

Feeling OUT of the water

when I SHOULD be swimming ...

Seated on a SNOW STORM

while I would rather be

basking NUDE in the sun ...

Feeling like a

OUT-OF-PLACE sea creature poised

on top of a

BIG tin can of fish ...

The tide is HIGH

but

I am just too LAZY

to dive in it ...

Feeling like

a beached OCEAN princess

on an ICE BANK ;-)

SO MUCH ... TOO MUCH ! ! !

So ... so ... SO ...

MUCH snow ! ! !

HARD to believe

this will ALL turn into a

TROPICAL looking PARADISE

in a couple of months ...

The ONLY way to go around

this morning

is on SNOW-SHOES ...

Mikey needs a CUSTOM-MADE pair too ...

This BIG amount of snow

ALWAYS makes me worry about

WILD ANIMALS around ...

Makes it HARD for them

to find FOOD

and

to RUN away from predators ...

THREE DOGS NIGHT ...

EVEN Husky dogs

get the winter BLUES ...

There is A LOT of snow ...

Possibly the MOST

we have ever gotten

in a winter ...

Can NOT walk

to the chicken coop,

I have snow up to my ARMPITS !!!

REFUSAL TURNS INTO TREASURE ...

When an OLD house

owned by AGING people

gets SOLD to YOUNGER occupants,

I know the GARBAGE in front of that place

will BECOME a temporary PERSONAL

flea market of MINE

for a few weeks ...

Opened the LID of a box

LEFT on the side of the road

and

INSTANTLY the magic operated ...

Rushed back home to INVESTIGATE it

and just could NOT believe

what I FOUND in there !

ALL these so PERFECTLY

color-HARMONIZED things ...

PROOF that one man's REFUSAL

is another woman's TREASURE ;-)

POOR GAL, RICH GAL ...

Saturday,

I spent ONE dollar ...

And I feel like MILLIONAIRE !

Stopped at a THRIFT store

on my way back from a friend,

JUST two minutes ...

Found TWO baby DOLLS

to add to my extended family of

ADOPTED plastic kids

and

this BEAUTIFUL old metal tartan pick-nick box ...

$1.00 for these three TREASURES !

And get THIS !

NONE come from China,

all were MADE in

Canada or USA !

VERY, VERY TIRED ...

Meet Shleepy,

the VERY tired

striped owl

who's been HANGING around

for a couple of days now ...

He LOVES basking in the sun

EARLY in the morning ...

then he DISAPPEARS

to do his thing ...

Shleepy's eyelids are

very,

VERY

heavy ...

ONE OF MY IDOLS ...

When I GROW UP,

I wanna be COUGAR ANNIE ...

Settled in 1915

on a REMOTE parcel of land

on Vancouver Island,

DETERMINED to make a NEW life for

herself, her husband and 3 children,

Ada HACKED and CLEARED

the wild acreage HERSELF

and created a PARADISE

to sustain her family

AND

please their eyes.

Ada got her NICKNAME

for the MANY cougars she shot

during her lifetime ...

She bore 8 MORE children

and OUTLIVED 4 husbands

while tending her garden EXTRAORDINAIRE,

where she remained till her mid-90s ...

Look at THAT smile on her face !

Thursday, March 3, 2011

I CAN SEE MY HOUSE NOW !

DESERVE

paradise ...

ON TOP OF THE WORLD ...

SPLENDOR ...

Any time of the day ...

SunRISE to sunSET ...

Another PROMISING day ...

You have NO idea

HOW MUCH fun this was !

Going UP with the cog railway

and

will be skiing DOWN

beside it when it returns ...

WAY, WAY UP ! ! !

AGIOCOCHOOK ...

Home of the Great Spirit ...

NO words needed here ...

Altitude 6,288 feet ...

PURE marshmallow JOY !

Mmmmmmmm ....

Mount Washington ...

WAY up ABOVE the clouds ...

MIND BLOWING WIND ...

This is WHERE we were off to ...

ALMOST no man's LAND ...

Didn't know WHEN (and IF)

we'd be BACK again ...

from REAL winter WONDERLAND !

IT'S HERE, IT'S HERE ! ! !

Spring Break is HERE for a week !

BLISS and total HAPINESS !

Sonny is AROUND for 10 days !

NO schedules

OR

clock to watch !

My studio has been INVADED

by Daft Punk AND Paul Guilbert

AND The Raconteurs AND the Clash

playing in a LOOP

while guitars and drums

OCCUPY it ...

Ski AND snowboard on the MENU !

The moutain has been CALLING us ...
