Wisteria Lane Monday
Yesterday as we were reading all of your posts, we came to Tracy's Post and she was talking about Serendipity. She pointed out that"
Serendipity is defined by Mirriam-Webster as the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for. Serendipitous is a derivative of that word marked by events that are come upon or found by accident; fortuitous.
Then she asked everyone to relate a serendipitous moment in their day. For Me and My Vickie it was when we found a beautiful red tulip in a field of cheery yellow dandelions.
Or like this morning when we woke up and started our chores. As soon as the sun began to shine, we noticed that our Wisteria bush had blossomed. This is serendipitous for us because we have been caring for, watering, watching, hoping for 10 years that it would bloom and it wasn't until last year that we saw the first blooms of its life. It has been well worth the wait.
Once we got everything settled at the day care and kennel, we called our buddies Goose and Michelle to see if they wanted to go with us to water the plants in the house of one of our clients. The fun thing is that they live up high in the mountains and this meant HIKING.
The daffodils were all over mixed in among the aspen. My Vickie and Michelle (Gooses Mom) couldn't stop taking pictures. It was Pose here Goose, Pose here Bert......Pose pose pose.
We then drove higher up into the mountains and parked the old van on a hillside and hiked some more. It was really hot, but not to fear, Goose and I found a patch of snow.
Pastor Michelle even threw snowballs for me. It was great.
And of course we found a mud puddle.....It would be wrong to pass that up.
Some times it was a bit muddy but My Vickie just had to follow me through the mud to get this picture.
When I got back home I went for another walk with my Erianne and now I am getting ready to hit the sack. You know, go to bed, rest up. Cause tomorrow I have to go to the groomer (not real happy about that, but it was worth it, getting to get so dirty today) then off to my friends at the hospital.
Have a great day everyone. Hope you enjoy my short video below.
