Oh, March - Pull Up Your Socks!

In February, I wrote 3 blog posts.

Tally so far this month:  one, from March 2nd.
This will make 2 posts, so I have a pretty good chance
of beating my sorry February record. 

It's not that there's nothing going on around That Old House.
Well, yes, actually . . . there is nothing going on around That Old House.

Of course, there's always the weather.

On Saturday, after Gilda's bath (which explains the crazy curly hair),
she and Dylan heard tap-tap-tapping on the Sunroom roof. 

Lo and behold . . . snow.
 Not piles and piles of it, but eventually it covered the ground
and bushes, and even this Monday morning there are lingering
snow lumpers here and there in the yard.

We are how many days away from Spring?
And expecting more snow tonight.
Ah, Mother Nature. 
You are such a cut-up. 
At That Old House, there are always the dogs to talk about.
For Mary's Mosaic Monday (link below),
I've done a couple of canine collages.

 Gilda went to the pet shop on Friday.
She came home with an Easter dress.
Oh, dear.
If I start dressing the dogs in footie pajamas and 
walking them all over town in a double stroller,
arrange for an intervention, promise? 

How is your March shaping up?
Howard's got a nasty case of conjunctivitis, in both eyes,
Anne's got a hacking cough,
the house is a museum of winter fustiness,
and I am still one lucky middle aged frau.  -- Cass

Now, go visit Mary's beautiful Little Red House blog,
Her mosaic is a dreamy, Welcome Spring collage of tiny, tender blooms.  



  1. Hi Cass! Sorry to hear your house is filled with sickies! Hope all are better soon. Now I so enjoy watching the adventures of your darling little spaniels! Just dolls! Love the collage of both little fuzzy faces. Thanks for popping in to see me and I hope it warms up soon at your house.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia :0

  2. Oh, my. That dress is very cute, but I could see it would be addicting to start dressing her up in other things. It's a slippery slope, my dear!

  3. I laughed when I saw the dog in the dress....that looks like something my siblings and I would have done to our cat, growing up. Spring is so near and we are going to have a wide variety of weather. xoxo,Susie

  4. March is that unpredictable month, isn't it? We've had glorious weather, so far, but you never can tell what's around the bend.

    The puppies are just adorable.

  5. We've missed you -- love the pics of the dogs looking up and the mosaics. I haven't figured out how to do that yet! We have friends that have whole WARDROBES for their dogs. Dolly refuses -- she is a dog, a herding dog and herding dogs are "nekkid" she says!!! Or at least as naked as something with a fur coat can be!

    There may be snow on the prairie this week as well -- which means that you may get MORE snow for what we get you get -- later! (and sometimes worse!)

  6. The storm will hit you before it hits us on Tuesday night. Spring is lingering way too long but it will come, maybe by April. I love the mosaics of your precious pups and especially love the pink dress on Gilda. It really made me smile. I miss seeing your posts as you always make me smile. Blessings, Pamela

  7. The fur babies are so adorable. Of course Gilda needed an Easter dress! Hard to believe you're having a snow storm and it's already getting hot out here in the desert. Keep warm. **happy smiles** Deb

  8. Oh Cass..sorry you've got the winter yucks happening. April is coming!. Wait a minute......if Gilda has an Easter dress what does Dylan get? A bowtie? They have the sweetest faces.

  9. Awww! Enjoyed seeing their sweet faces. Sorry the bugs have hit your household - hope everyone feels better soon.
    Have a great week.

  10. Cass,
    I have been remiss as well. Seems I can make myself known on FB. Not the same though so I am trying. The dogs are wonderful and I really enjoy their antics. Sorry about the weather....

  11. Your spaniels are adorable. Spaniels are my favorite pets. They are just so cute. I am your newest follower.

  12. we haven't seen the tiny dog next door dressed up in clothes yet (a la' Giggy from the Housewives) but they do push her around in a baby stroller with a screen to keep the bugs out.... couldn't picture me doing that when we had the love love that picture of the children looking up at the roof.....they make my day!

  13. That picture of them looking up at the sunroof ceiling is sooooo darn cute.
    SO ARE all the others. :0) Sweet dress.
