The Roomies were securing the summer rental this past weekend and we got to tag along. The Beach looked inviting!
China loved the warmth of the sun.
Bow, Elenor and Cookie were sunning themselves on the bench.
We drove around town. It was so quiet, not like the hustle and bustle of the Summer months.
Homie loved the “protecting” the local leprechaun.
The Roomie changed the lyrics to the Robin Sparkles song “Lets Go To The Mall” with “Lets Go To The Shore” and then sang it for hours. Now I can’t get that silly ditty out of my head. Ugh!
Anywho…can’t wait for the Summer to start
This snowstorm looked intense but it didn’t give us much snow…only about an inch.
It came down fast and huge, lol. Oh and hey…we are supposed to get more snow on Sunday. Yay!?! Spring where are you????
What a wonderful weekend! Warm (upper 50′s) and without any snow or rain to drag down the warmth!
Home, Me and China went to the Arboretum for some “almost” spring fun. It was 58 degrees but windy so it felt colder but since the three of us are used to cold temps it didn’t faze us at all. The Roomies looked a little chilly though, lol.
There still plenty of snow laying about but we made the best of it. It’s melting pretty quickly. Just another sign that spring isn’t too far a way
There were plenty of places that had no snow. China is getting her Buddha Chant on here. I don’t think she knew I was taking her picture even though she looks like she’s posing for the camera. She really meditating. China’s deep like that!
We even got in some rock climbing. Homie is an old guy but he’s still got it!
I thought China being made of glass would shy away from the rock climbing but she was the first one to the top of the cave. You go girl!
It was a great weekend with friends!

Curling is awesome. The Gold Medal round didn’t disappoint. The Canadians were on top form.
That’s Kaitlyn getting ready to make the magic happen!
Sweden put up a good fight but it came down to one mistake that let the Canadians in the door.
We were having nothing but snow every week and then today came with its 58 degree temperatures and the moisture wasn’t snow this time…it was rain. Lots and lots of rain.
The big talk is if it will make all the snow go away…just in time for the snow that is supposed to arrive next week once our mini heat wave ends :( Spring is taunting us! Not Nice!

The gang hung out with some of the Former President’s to celebrate their day!
Jimmy and Eddie took the day to take some pictures and chat with the Old Dudes.
Jimmy wasn’t clear as to why there isn’t a Famous Writer’s Day. Eddie just rolled his eyes.
OMG…is that a smile on Eddie’s face? It’s probably going to snow!
I think Eddie jinxed us, lol. Bjorn is back on the beat these days.
He’s looking rested these days. Me and Thad hung out with Bjorn and his brother Boone yesterday. It was a good time but we had a bit of Olympics rivalry going.
Bjorn and Boone pulled out their colors so we did too. Since Norway lost to Great Britain in Men’s Curling yesterday I thought I’d be nice to the poor guy. He takes his Curling seriously!
We may be American Elves but in the end our hearts belong to Canada’s Women’s Curling team. WE LOVE YOU JENNIFER!!!

His name was Pax and he left a great swath of snow in his wake. We had Pax the nor’easter swing through the region leaving behind 13″ of snow followed by sleet, rain and then an additional 4″ of snow. I’m not a fan of snow like Homie. I’m more a 40 degree or high kind of elf.
Hey I will make snow angels and play snow fort with the best of them but there comes a time in the winter months one just looks towards spring, lol. I’m one of those Elves!
So if you are loving Pax I apologize for cramping your style
I have this new friend named Shelly. You’ve seen him on this blog. Lately, we’ve been spending some time hanging out together and I’ve found he’s a really nice kid. We like some of the same things and for a young sport he’s not quirky when it comes to hanging out with an Elf who was raised a Gnome.
I made him a new cloak to wear during the really cold moments. I don’t really get that cold. It’s probably because I spent most of my life in the Garden so cold and snow don’t faze me at all.
We got an ice storm last night and it sure was pretty.
I’m showing my new friend how I enjoy the outdoors all year round. Even when the weather isn’t so pleasant. I think he sees what I see…Beauty!
