In The Pink

As you may have noted from previous posts, I love flowers. Every year I spend hours on my flowerbeds, and the numerous pots and hanging baskets that are crowded on our deck and patio. This particular flower is a flower on the sweet potato vine that I had on my deck last summer. These are interesting in that the blossoms only open for a short period of time every day. They are so pretty and delicate, a pinkish lavender color. Last night Sweetie rented Marley & Me for us to watch. I really wanted to see it in the theater, but had a feeling it would have a sad ending. When this was confirmed by friends who had gone to see it, I--being a complete dog person, knew I did not want to sit in a theater blubbering with numerous strangers around. Boy howdy, am I glad we watched it at home! What a great movie though! I highly recommend it, especially if you've ever owned a lab. We laughed our butts off because we have our beautiful littl lab, Macie. Who is a total trouble maker. Funny thing is, I picked her when she was a baby because she was the quietest puppy, and also the runt. She was from the litter that Sweetie's parents had at their house, so I had first pick. What a sweet beautiful little puppy--that day.

We brought her home, and she's been a trouble maker ever since. I could really relate to the characters in that movie. Lab puppies are just so adorable, that you really don't realize what you are getting yourself into. Just look how cute!

And she was so tiny.

Always comical, everything she does makes you smile. She still sleeps like this sometimes:

After losing Max last year, I know the years will go by too quickly, and that eventually she'll be known for being the "Best Dog". Right now though, when she chews up another textbook, she'll be the "worst dog ever"...LOL. But how could you not love these eyes:

How absolutely wonderful! Beverly sure knew what she was doing when she created a place for all of us "pinkies" to congregate and share our "pinkness".

I have been scared of watching Marley and Me, too. I know I'm gonna lose it at the end.
Happy Mother's Day to you. I hope you find yourself surrounded by those you love, good food, and a gentle peace in your ♥. We don't need to be a mother to know a mother's life. After all we all started out with a mom, didn't we?☺

that's a movie I won't be watching. I just don't do well with animal movies, not since as long as I can remember. Must have been Bambi when I was a child, even Dumbo didn't sit well with me. Your baby is so sweet and I love seeing pictures of her, happy pink saturday, Char
