  3. You can just keep that snow to yourself, and that dog looks evil! lol Beginning my week with your haiku is the perfect way to say HAPPY MONDAY!

    Be well dear friend!

    • Don’t worry, it’s snow from a fortnight ago and my dear, sweet dog is quite th opposite of evil. Impish, yes. Puppy-like at the grand age of 10, yes!
      In fact, my monday is good. The weather is so warm and sunny that I sat outside to have my lunch today. If only that background chill would disappear from the shadows, it would be perfect. Unfortunately, rain is forecast for the rest of the week, but I’m determined to enjoy the sun while it lasts. Our clocks moved forward an hour yesterday, so we’re now on British Summer Tme, which means an hour more light at the end of the day. Lovely 🙂
      Once plenty of sunshine has done its work on me, I hope to feel well. At the moment I’m feeling a bit jaded and old D:
      You have a wonderful week, dear friend!

    I love it. François took a picture of Zeke with eyes aglow… keeps it as his screensaver on his phone. Like yours, there is not an evil bone in his body.
    Happy week to you, Sarah!

    • How lovely that François should have a picture of your dog on his phone. It sounds as if your big romance is still going good and strong 🙂 Happy week to you, too, Dale, and my huge apologies for being so neglectful of you. We will have girls’ facetime when I’ve finished my darned book. I’ve been really tired, with my brain only functioning on half-power. Have decided the culprit is the iodine in my multivitamins (will explain more when we talk). Since stopping taking the things, the fog has started to lift from my brain!

        Well…. it’s on a “let’s see where we stand” thing, actually – my having not totally digested his two-weeks in the sun and sand sans me.
        You are not neglecting me – because I know I will be rewarded when the time comes…
        And so happy to hear the fog is lifting and yes, when you are able to, we shall have a girls’ facetime!

  5. Love this and the lamp eyes!

    • Thank you, Cindy 🙂 My dog has particularly lamp-like eyes as they are naturally a hazel-cum-yellow colour, even in daylight. When she’s in an impish mood, she looks like one of the creatures from Maurice Sendak’s children’s book “Where the Wild Things Are” 😀

  7. Priceless! Explorer dog lamps…love it! No more snow here, hopefully more spring-like with you too dearest Sarah. I actually got out in the garden yesterday and did some planting, the first time since long before we moved and the first time, I do believe, since we moved that it hasn’t rained or snowed or been bitterly cold! I hope your writing continues to go well…I am pressing on with my rewrites, hopefully through this, the final draft. Glad to check in here my lovely friend and wish you a wonderful weekend and hope you had a lovely Easter too! Be in touch soon! Love & hugs 🙂 xxxxxxx

    • Dearest Sherri, I’ve only just found your comment as have been in hiding. Please forgive me. Was feeling a bit overwhelmed, so had to retreat and refresh! Easter seems so long ago, but it was a good one. Much prefer it to Christmas, as it’s not so commercial. I managed to send off my submission to that novel competition one hour before the deadline. Have nearly finished the book — only a few pages to go, but ended up having to write a synopsis before those last words were on the page. I’m glad to hear that you’re pressing on with your rewrites. Hope to see you soon. Love & hugs 🙂 xxxxxxxxxxxxx

      • Hello Dearest Sarah, so lovely to hear from you, and there is nothing to forgive, I understand ❤ I hope your retreat has helped refresh you and no longer overwhelmed. I know how horrible it feels and sometimes retreating is the only way to get through it. Yes, I agree about Easter, a much calmer and more meaningful holiday. Oh that is fantastic news about your submission, phew, talk about last minute! But I'm a fine one to talk, ha! That must have been such a challenge with the synopsis before finishing, no wonder you felt overwhelmed. I hope you can relax and unwind now and catch your breath now that you've worked so very hard and achieved your goal with submission. I wish you every success my dear friend, you deserve it so much. I will be in touch with you very soon re a visit. Meanwhile, here's to a wonderful sunny weekend for us both. I was thrilled to find hollyhocks, foxgloves and lupins still at the garden centre and then I'm going to get pots and baskets us (but mindful we could still get frost up the the end of May) and also have a go at growing pumpkins too, first time since the kids were little in California. After last year, not being able to do any gardening, I am so much looking forward to getting my teeth into it again, finding it very theraputic, as I know you also do. I'll catch up with you next week…big hugs and lots of love and kisses… Sherri 🙂 ❤ xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

      • Yes, I love gardening. I have some foxgloves. Planted them last year and they’re coming up good and strong this year. I’m afraid that hollyhocks don’t work in our garden due to snails and a labrador lumbering around, too! I’ve some wonderful pots. Am especially in love with some very fancy tulips by my front door. I might pen something about them for a Monday Morning Haiku, if I can find the words. At the moment, my word inspiration is a little sporadic. I can’t catch my breath yet with the novel, as it still needs finishing and having had its first read-through, preferably in less than a month, just in case I’ve got somewhere in the competition — not that the rules say you have to have even finished the first draft, but I like to be ahead, if at all possible. Hope to catch up with you this next week. Big hugs, love, and kisses xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

      • We do share our love of gardening, which is lovely. I am trying my best to keep the slugs and snails at bay (oh if only for my dear Mrs Tiggywinkle back at my ‘old’ summerhouse…) and have tried, unsuccessfully, to grow healthy and happy hollyhocks, so let’s see what happens. I don’t have the lumbering labrador, but I do remember what it was like when we did, bless! I will catch up with you very shortly dearest Sarah, like you, I am up to my eyes with writing submissions and of course, it is taking me longer than I wanted it to. But it has to be right, right? Then…hoping next week will be back to the memoir in full force. I have struggled a lot lately, trying to get any time online blogwise. And so it goes, same old same old… Anyway, always wonderful to chat with you my lovely friend…so proud of you and all you’ve achieved and I do wish you nothing but the very best with the competition. Keep me posted, but of course I’ll be in touch you regularly here and there… lots of love, hugs and kisses… xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  8. Hello Sarah: Love this post. “Luminous eyes pinprick night” – the beautiful ‘eye’ and ‘nigh’ rhyming. Explorer dog lamps – ha ha – love that too!
