Life is Good

We received the beautiful Life is Good award from our friend, Holly!  Thank you so much, Holly.  We think this award is one of the prettiest ones we've ever seen!

Part of accepting awards is answering questions so here goes:

1. What would your perfect day consist of?

A hike up Sleeping Giant, dindin at Glenwood followed by ice cream at Wentworths!

We did get ice cream but it was Durham ice cream last night!  whoooooohoooooo

2. How would you describe yourself if you were an item of clothing?

Furry, like a pair of bunny slippers.

3. What hobbies are you currently working on?

We're supervising the building of a timber frame barn!

4. Walking in the woods in wellies or bare foot on the beach?

Definitely a walk in the woods but we certainly don't need the wellies!

5. Have you ever hugged or sang to a tree?

We sing at trees all the time when squirrels just happen to be sitting in them!

6. Growing your own veggies or nipping to the supermarket?

Mom and dad have a garden every year and even though this is a VERY busy summer for us with the barn project, dad did manage to plant a few tomato plants.

7. Have you found anyone exciting in your family tree?

Gosh, I never thought about it!  I'll have to have mom get out my pedigree so I can check!

8. Slap up meal in a posh restaurant or fish ‘n’ chips from the wrapper?

Fish - n - chips from Lenny and Joes, please!

9. Which element do you most resonate with, Earth, Air, Fire or Water?

Aire, of course!

That was fun!  We know lots of our friends have already received this award so if you haven't and you'd love to have it, please take it and tell us more about yourselves!

So until next time.................

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Teddy said... sounds so yummy right now. I bark at the trees to make the birds leave. Birds and squirrels don't belong in those trees.

Hi Maggie and Mitch,
We are eating tomatoes and sweet peppers and all those herbs, oh yes and the jalapeno peppers too.
Waiting for the squash and the cayenne peppers and some of the flowers to bloom. Tom is a excellent gardener as am I. So if the weather is not to horrible we should have a lot of great food out of are garden this year.

One exciting thing all Airedales have in their family tree is the Otterhound! I don't think any other terriers have some hound in their background. (As for otter, well, look at those cute faces! )
