What’s better than having your ducks in a row? Having your ducks in a row of pools. Happy spring!

Nick Loves Trixie: A Duck and His Great Dane Puppy
Nick loves Trixie. I thought it might not be as intense this spring, now that she is spayed. But, nope, his love burns bright. And as promised, video!
Excuse the look of the yard – spring clean-up has not happened yet and everything is still frozen and dormant after an unusually brutal winter.
Ducks and Danes: Spring Is In The Air
It must be spring. And I will do my best to get video. But today, of course I had my camera and Trixie wouldn’t play, disappointing Nick.
Yesterday, though, they had a ball.

Ducks in the Bathtub…Again
I guess the good news is, we’ve had to do this so often this past year, I have a system in place and it’s not quite as disruptive. Crazy.
Subzero for two days after 60 degrees yesterday. Unreal. For comparison, Mabel and Maddie spent maybe two nights in the house in their 5 years here. Nick and Nora have been in the house 5 times since last March.
Snowy Ducks Do Not Mean Clean Ducks
They always find a way to make mud.
Huh…it snowed overnight. I know, I know…Colorado…November – not exactly a newsflash. But it wasn’t really in the forecast, so I was not mentally prepared for the before-coffee shoveling. The ducks are happy, the dogs are happy, I now have coffee, so I’m happy.
I’m making Pasta e Fagioli soup today. I have to get to the store for a few ingredients I didn’t have on hand, but I’ll post the recipe later today. Until then…
Moment of Zen: Nick and Nora Pool Time
Just a lazy afternoon with fresh pool water:
It was 100 degrees yesterday and I looked out and saw Nora panting, so it was time for some sprinkler fun. They played for about 30 minutes and then seemed content until the cool front arrived around bedtime.
