circle the wagons ...

And the cold spell keeps on coming
Each morning, I take my girls ... Maddy Jean & Bella ..
 out back for their meowning walk.
Bella, is on week five of her recovery,
 and still needs to be walked on her leash.
Today, it was a Fabulous 12 .. trying to get to 13.
Not icy though ... no moisture so it's just cold ...
 crunchy actually.
Moon is out which is very pretty.
Stars are too.
I keep thinking I need to bring
my handy dandy photo shooter with me
Where would I put it ?
I have the flashlight in my pocket.
Bella & Maddy Jean are excited to go out.
My coat won't zip up on command.
When I do get out to the crunchy lawn
The moon & stars look absolutely gorgeous
For that second or two
Then, I'm getting the girls to circle the wagons
and turn back to the porch

BRRRRR it sounds quite cold there for your walk! We are supposed to hit around 0 degrees tonight and our high tomorrow only in the high 20's....BRRRRRR.

I bet the girls do enjoy their morning walk. Glad Bella is doing better.

We would think that kitties would need to stay inside alla' da times in da winters☺ We is liking those holly-day decora-shuns.

Sounds deliciously cold! We're awaiting our first significant snow fall here tonight - if it doesn't dip over or under the Metro area.

Your walks sound so beautiful and restful and I wish I could just up and transport myself to Washington State, but I know that's just the stress talking.

Stay warm!!! It's cold in NYC now, but not THAT cold.

Roses and Lilacs said...

Our temperatures have been relatively warm until now. We have snow for the next two days and zero temperatures. Miserable!!! Stay warm. I'll bet your dogs don't mind the cold when the go out.

Ok, I am ready for spring to begin.

Junior and Orion said...

Circle the wagons huh? Maybe that is what Meowm is doing everyday when she leaves.

It is very cold here! We are glad we stay inside, although a walk outside now and then would be nice.

JC said...

It's another cold day. Warming up to a fabulous 22.

Glogirly and Katie said...

Hey Lilacs & Cats!

It's frigid here too...
Glogirly says it's nippy outside. But when she leaves, she never returns with any nip at all. I just don't get it. I want nippy.

I would loooooooooove to feel that fresh, chilly air right now!

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

It's so cold now isn't it? I'm glad I can just let our dog out in the back and I don't have to join her. You're a much nicer pet mom than me :) I hope it warms up to at least above freezing soon.

That sounds cold! It has been cold here! Too much so! Mom had 4 layers on today!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
