Happy Easter

This Easter weekend has been hot, almost 20 C in the shade. The bears are up and about, so I made lots of noise walking the dog through the forest this afternoon.

Yesterday in town the Great Lake was still frozen and there's still lots of snow in the mountains, and yet it's so warm.

We put the trampoline up today keeping the girls busy.

Nipa nibbled the old dry grass, holding it daintily between her front paws.

We got our bikes out this week. Strawberry thinks she's big enough to ride mine. I think she should wait another summer.

The ski slope, see behind Strawbs, is still covered in snow, but Spring is definitely here.

Passing on.

Sorry, I have not been a very active blogger recently.

I have given precedence to other dear ones for some time now, but I haven't forgotten any of you.

My in-laws have been close neighbours ever since I married and moved to Sweden 23 years ago and I have always felt welcomed and loved by them. Saturday March 19th, after several months of illness, my father-in-law passed on. The funeral was held last Friday.

My mother-in-law says that he was the best husband she could have had. I know he was the best father-in-law I could have had.
