early morning blue

Friday, January 14, 2011











yesterday's early morning, very snowy walk around the village with my girl Winnie D.

The sky is dark & blue, the street lights are still on, the air is damp & cold, the village is quiet but for the hum of snowploughs and the scooping of shovels, the harbour is icy cold looking, deep grey, choppy and foreboding and no ice ... yet. This winter has been sly, sneaky, tame but snowy. The banks that edge our walk get steeper and higher daily ... it just keeps snowing, quietly.

Winnie is the absolute best walking companion, she's so patient, so game for any diversion, change in routine or direction. She'll follow me anywhere. She looks up at me often with her Gee this is fun ! scraggly face smile and I tell her how much I love her one more time. Missy D would like to thank her fans & followers for all the lovely birthday wishes.

Les draft contract from big fish has arrived via email for my review - Hoo Ray !!

  4. This is why I like coming to your blog, seeing sites I don't normally see. Not that there's no snow or deep blue morning where I am, it's just that I'm so warm and happy in my hibernation nest. Still anything that makes Winnie happy is a good thing.

    Happy about the contract. Hope it's phat for you!

  5. That's what I'm enjoying about having a big dog, rather than an ankle-high one: you can really see how much she's enjoying being out with me. Lovely pictures, and great news about the draft contract - will this put an end to your worries or not?

  6. les "draft" contract - a licensing agreement, paid in royalties and based on shipped sales - so I think you can take "my worrying lots more" straight to your local NuT bank ... stay tuned.

  9. So blue and lovely, it's rather gray-brown and barren here, no snow but frost all over everything. It's supposed to snow, but hasn't. And Winn is such a sweetheart, what an adorable face.
