Spring, With A Side Of Summer

Spring has sprung here in Philly, with a side of Summer.

Oh, there is chatter about “it” not being over, but “it” doesn’t matter once the thermometer reaches 80. Tootles Old Man Winter, until we meet again.

I’ve put together a little photo essay for the turn of seasons, even though it’s not official for a few more weeks.

First up …. Squirrels



Meet Sebastien a/k/a the nemesis to my two little innocent fur angels.

Sebastian L O V E S to just sit, stare and mock from the comforts of my deck furniture.

Yesterday, as Landon was barking his face off, Sebastien was enjoying a croissant on my swing. A croissant? 

When I catch him in his beret smoking a cigarette and demanding a refill, I’ll be sure to share that photo. Where the hell did he get that croissant?



Hello World!

Everything is getting greener, with a splash of pink, purple & yellow of course.

You can always depend on the Crocus’s to arrive early to the party with a little hope in tow. They are certainly survivors and they never disappoint.  I think they might be my spirit flower ….

These perfect beauties were posted to FaceBook by my friend. Feel free to smile.

I’ll just be over hear scratching my eyes and blowing my nose. Allergies…the dark side of Spring.


Oh yes, it’s true. While wildlife in my yard has been handing out cigars like the Duggars, my little Pee-Wee (Peanut) that has fallen hard right here in the house.


Took the Lady right out of this bug!

It’s Dogs Gone Wild over here at LWTTD!



Peanut suddenly started taking trips upstairs. He prefers to be carried like the King he is, so that raised a brow. Peanut sauntered down with a little swagger in his step. The only thing missing was the silk robe, cigarette & martini. 


There is nothing to see here … move along.

Like the good mother I am, I stalked his next trip. Sure enough, I caught him shacking up with a stuffed Lady Bug. Mother’s intuition is rarely wrong.

What I did not expect was the all out orgy I witnessed with the Lady Bug, Phillie Phanatic and the Scholar Owl. Or the fact that I yelled, “what are you doing?!”

Is this my life now? Hiding stuffed animals before I leave the house … apparently it is. 

Peanut the poker-faced PLAYHA.


Honestly, the best part about this glorious weather has been open windows and sunbeams, just ask Landon. 


I stay away from stuffed animals, but I bark at air. 

Looks like today will be another beauty … Enjoy the Ride!

  4. Yes!!! Spring!!!! Yessssssss. I love sleeping with the windows open, seeing a flowering tree where yesterday was only a bare brown one.

    But I have a confession: that was my croissant. Sudden urge for me to diet.

  9. Squirrels in our backyard tease my dogs to no end. I’ve never seen one with a croissant, wow. One of the neighbors used to feed the squirrels peanuts in the shell, I had peanut shells all over my backyard.

    1. They love to tease. I swear this one does it on purpose. Evil

      1. On purpose for sure, little devils.


  10. I live in Boston but drove down to Wilmington DE (near you all in Philly) to visit my mom this weekend. What a difference a 7 hour drive makes! You all ARE entering spring. Our buds are closed up tight, but in your neck of the woods, trees had that luscious pink tinge they get as buds prepare to welcome the world again. Enjoy with the squirrels and your adorable Peanut.

  11. My dog absolutely LOVES that there are sunbeams glowing through the windows. He loves, loves, loves to sleep on the carpet wherever the sun is hitting him. So cute. Yay Spring!
