Spring, where did you go?

Last week, I was so caught up with birthday plans that I missed out on acknowledging the first day of spring.  Well, I think that came back to haunt me.  The last few days have been cold again, and rainy.  Yuck.  In fact, since mom had turned off the heat because of the nice weather we had been having, it was only 60 degrees in the house Friday morning.  Brrr!  I headed straight for the vent after mom cranked up the hot air!  Just when I thought it was safe to leave the house without a blanket...

Hopefully the weather people got it right, and today and the rest of the week will be mild and sunny so I can go out to lunch with Gammy!  I'd also like to enjoy the yard like I did on the actual vernal equinox.  What?!?  A pug can't know big words?  I'm smart.

Please come back, Spring!


PS.  Two more birthday surprises came in the mail for me over the weekend.  One was a package from the gang at Minnie and Mack's Daily Digest!

Isn't that just the cutest mailer?  And look at all the cool stuff in the package!

Yeah, I was totally getting ready to attack those stuffies!  My man, Mack, gave me the monkey, Minnie picked out the lion, and their foster puggle, Mario, chose the green Holee Cuz.  They all signed a cute card with pugs eating a cupcake, so appropriate!  Oh, but wait, you may have noticed the card on the armrest in the picture above.  That was from DW (Writing Chances), who wrote such a sweet note to me on the inside of that pretty hummingbird card!  Ok, now let's get down to business...

The monkey has a pink shirt that says "Happy Birthday" and he is also wearing a party hat, so he was my first victim...I mean playmate.  Thanks so much to Minnie, Mack, and Mario, and DW too!

Payton, normally Rupert and I would be able to wish some of our warm weather your way, but it got really cold here too! Stay bundled by the vent, playing with all your wonderful birthday presents.

Hi Payton,

Thank you for the kind words for hu-bro Josh! We are very proud.

SO nice to see you playing with your b'day stuffies. Can you smell us on them? Hu-mom let us check them out before she mailed them to you.

Enjoy the warmer weather, too.

Love and kisses,

It got cold here again, too, Payton! This weather is ridiculous. I just got through pulling out all my light-weight tees and packing up all my winter apparel and then the temps decide to drop. Sheesh! Our apt is CHILLY as the main building heat isn't on. We have a tiny space heater though that actually works pretty well. Like you and your vent, I usually find a spot right in front of the heater to lay down on.

Let's hope this warmer weather comes back ASAP!

P - Isn't this weather CRAZY? It got HOT here (sumemrtime?), now it's cold, then tomorrow it's going to be warm again. What's a pug to do?

Awesome photos, btw. You make my mama smile, and I'm not even jealous.
