2 Robins, 2 Silvers, and a Bronze

March 30, 2009

Yesterday, March 29 at approximately 4 pm, Jack and I saw our first robins, two of them in the tree out front.  I was very excited, Jack was excited, but differently I suspect.  He was almost salivating!  I felt very sorry for them as the ground that might contain tasty worms is currently covered in 3 feet of snow, more where shovels have piled it up.  The neighbourhood kids have been busy piling it up more and building snowforts here and there.  However, spring and melting snow can’t be far behind robins!

The CBC redeemed itself by playing over 4 hours of figure skating on Saturday, and showing a lot of the womens final on Sunday.  I got to see the skate that won Patrick Chan his silver, and the barely there bronze of the Canadian dance pair.  And most importantly, a Canadian lady was on the podium at World’s for the first time in over 20 years!  It was very exciting when Joannie skated well, and won the silver.  We had a great weekend by the fire knitting and watching:

Piper in her basket, and Jack in his chair, snug and warm by the fire.  Rounding out the weekend was some salsa dancing, some grooving to Reggaton, which I absolutely love, and even dancing a jig or two to live Celtic music.

    Spring!! You and your kitties sure know how to live! Hey-Moab was very cold this week. Good thing you were there ealier.

  2. Scruffy is really into the robins, too. I’m not sure what he thinks he would do with them, but he gets very excited about them.

    Cat in a basket! Cute!

    Robins are a good sign! I sat by the fire all weekend long too. But no dancing for me!

    What a cozy scene! It is mud season here. 8 muddy paws to wipe off, 20 times a day, at the most inconvenient times. I’d almost rather have snow and ice. Its still cold, anyway. I can’t wait to see your finished shooting stockings!
