February 5, 2013 Days are getting longer.....
That's the way the ball bounces....unfortunately. You just can't always predict the sunrises or the sunsets. You can just look at what seems to be there that may do it and go for it. If you stay home, you may see a beautiful sky, but you won't have any nice scenery to put in the foreground. It was a lovely evening on the beach with Toby, at any rate. He was pretty relaxed as we had done our usual early morning walk....at -23 degrees below 0. We went to Horseshoe Bay and had a little expedition at mail time.
In the late afternoon, Toby and I headed out again for our afternoon adventure. That is when I started paying attention to what the sky was doing. It did look very promising. So, we got home, loaded the gear, and off we went. By now, it was up to 10 degrees. That beats -23 degrees all to heck. But, it is still pretty cold on the fingers. I haven't found gloves that I can work the camera with yet....so, thus.....freezing fingers syndrome by the time you get done. They barely had thawed out by the time I got home. Toby....on the other hand, went promptly to sleep on the pickup seat and really crashed with his nose tucked under his paw when we got home. All that play and no naps makes for a tired boy.
I will say, tho, that he is "so far, so good" after quitting the antibiotics. He is perkier and more playful than he has been in a very long time. He will be 10 years old mid-May. He was on the antibiotics for two full years. He probably will never not register positive on a Lyme's test again. But, as long as it doesn't flare up.....I guess that is the best we can ask for. He's a happy dog. :)
