Every spring and every fall I make shopping trips, just for jeans.  And for the past year or so, dog walking jeans.  Dog walking jeans are jeans that are not too low rise so that I don’t have to keep pulling them up when I bend with sweetie-pie, or sit on rocks and then get up, or walk, walk, walk.

Yesterday, I purchased these jeans.  They are not dog walking jeans.  They are low rise.  Just can’t seem to find any dog walking ones.  What I would like are light weight, higher waisted to sit above hips,95% plus cotton, a little spandex for stretch, put in the washer with little wrinkling jeans.  Can that be too hard to make.  Really.  And of course, they must fit.

My new jeans…….the quest is not over………

…It arrived!………Spring!…………

spring!!:))

Happy Spring to all on such a wonderful day!:))

…where is spring?! – March 14, 2012 – one year ago……….

This year……frozen……….

My crocuses have been at one inch high for weeks.  The last warm day we had they grew that inch…and since then, not a centimetre…….

Thought I would  start your day with the happiness of blooming crocuses…….from last year…….  🙂

…where is spring?!……..

Still bitterly winter like outside.  In contrast to yesterday’s image, wanted to show a winter image, which is how it feels today.  Put on a woolly sweater and sat beside the fireplace.

Now…I do have to go outside and take sweetie-pie for a walk……more brrrrrrrrrr…………

Hope that mother nature is following my blog.  🙂 ……….
