The weather is nuts lately, warm, cold, rain, sun. On one of the crazy warm days last weekend, the sun set leaving behind a beautiful view of the Alps. It was nearly 6:30pm and still about 15c outside. Insanity. Meanwhile the kids are on their winter “ski” break and although they are trying hard to […]

This morning Libby got to experience her first hair appointment. She went in one dog and came out a completely new one. She was apparently very well behaved and had no troubles with all the preening she put up with. I’m pretty happy with how she turned out, and it was definitely a job I […]

Every morning after school drop-off I take Libby for her walk. We usually just take a long route home through the fields on a country road. It’s great, I love it, but this morning I decided to do a little exploring. I took the car up the hill we live on and went down one […]
