Sometimes, a girl has to buy herself flowers! I love tulips, and when I saw these at Publix, I decided to treat myself. Unfortunately, I didn't get around to taking pictures until they were a little past their prime.
In honor of the recently completed 2012 Iditarod, I'm posting some pictures of my beautiful canine granddaughter, a Husky named Okami. Her dad rescued her in a parking lot at a rural Dollar Store. She's worth a million dollars to him! Although underweight and frightened when he found her, she was deemed young and healthy by the veterinarian. She quickly flourished under the TLC my son lavished on her and is now a member of our family dog pack---currently 7 strong!
