Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Finding color in all the right places

Katie here. So it’s mid-November, the leaves are pretty much gone from the trees and it’s getting cold. I like the cold unless it’s rain. I don’t appreciate my mama making me walk through cold rain to do my business, but I like snow. I don’t know why mama doesn’t. She’s silly, my mama.

Hey mama!  Wait up!

Anyway.

We don’t have snow here yet, but I’m having fun anyway. This weekend my mama took me to meet my friend Deuce and his mom Karen and we got to walk in beautiful Bloomer Park!

Even though most of the leaves were gone, we still found a ton of color. The down side is that the moms made us pose next to every single leaf. I swear. Every. Single. Leaf.

Are there treats involved in this?

OK. Maybe not every leaf. But a whole lot of them! We got bored!

BORING mama!!

But mostly we had fun! And guess what? We walked two whole miles! That’s a record for me lately.

Do you see me?  Isn't this beautiful?

I’m sort of a one mile kind of princess, you know?

Did you get my good side mama?

I did get sort of tired at the end and my mama worried she was going to have to carry me but I was strong and powered through it.

Never ever underestimate a princess.

Talk later guys!

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  5. Oh Katie, you silly little girl! I love the photo of your good side — you’re almost grinning there, you know. And I love the way your coat blends in with the fallen leaves. This is really a GOOD time for Shelties — Dallas loves snow, too, but I’m not overjoyed at melting tiny snowballs off his legs and feet before bringing him inside!!

    • Katie says she loves this time of year the most…but winter is a close second. She cleans the snowballs off her legs herself…she likes to fling them around the house for her dad to step on with his bare feet later.

  6. Katie, you are as beautiful as always. 🙂 And please tell your mama that I’m sorry I haven’t been around much lately. Hopefully that will change soon.
