Spring Please!!!

Today the temperature actually got into the high 40's!!! Please let that mean that spring is just around the corner!!!! Pretty please. I sure would like this snow to disappear. At one point we actually had a little over 24 inches on the ground. Now I know what you're thinking--did I build an igloo. No but the puppies sure had a great time. They loved it! I can't remember if I mentioned in the last point that the little pups had mange. Did you know that people can get it too???? Nasty thing that. Max and Toby got shots for 3 weeks and healed pretty quickly. On the other hand it took me longer to get over it. I had to go through 2 applications of permethrin but I'm finally itch-free except for the usual winter dry skin. I actually had bruises where I had scratched because I itched so bad!!!
Speaking of puppies, Toby got adopted on Sunday but Max, the yellow lab mix still needs a Forever Home so if anyone is looking for a cute adorable HEALTHY puppy he's here!!

I've been doing The Brave Girls Club Soul Restoration class and it has been very eye-opening. Learning a lot of things about myself which is a very good thing.
The January Crop was so much fun!!! We had Linda Holland come and had a great Copic make-n-take valentine's card. So cute! I love learning how to use my markers. Naturally we had our chinese meal on Saturday night. New Hong Kong restaurant did a great job with all the food! Fortune cookies were had by all. Karen outdid herself with the raffle prizes but then again she always does. We have started planning the April crop. In fact, we started that before the January crop!
