I am not complaining, because it has been a good winter so far. But the chairs in Picardy Park really do look quite lonely.
The Blues of Brighthope really love Picardy Park and all the fresh snow. I like the fact that fresh snow means no mud being tracked into the house at the end of our walks.
Funny how that little puppy manages to get herself into the pictures. Stay warm, "CAUSE, BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE"

For some reason when the Christmas decorations come down and the house looks a little bare without all the holiday colours, Dave seems to get an urge to complete another project. This year was no different and the kennel room floor was finally finished. The people at the flooring store where we bought the ceramic tile a "few" years ago just laugh now when they see us coming and ask "how much tile is left". I was happy to tell them this time that we are done, at least with this project.
Folks who have visited Brighthope to meet our dogs have commented about our renovation project. I am starting to think that this may turn into a retirement project. But I really should not complain, we have an ideal place for our dogs. They have their own kitchen, bathtub, laundry, grooming area etc. They do share our living room with us and I am just fine with that.
