Twice I've let the dogs out, and they didn't even notice the ducks waddling into the shade, and out of sight. There's always one pair. I saw the male swimming in the pool, while the female was sleeping in the shade (see right red arrow). I wanted to take a picture of HIM, when I opened the balcony door, all hell broke loose, and all of a sudden there where three ducks flying away in panic. I didn't see the other two at first at all. So there were two pairs. The female on the ground kept on sleeping. Her partner....

... came back immediately, after the first panic subsided. He resumed to paddle in the pool. Later in the afternoon, there where three males, and two females.The SHE-dog gave me almost a heart attack. We were out playing fetch, YES, (she's doing great, no complains in the evening), when she thought the pool looked very nice, and got ready to jump in. There's only melted snow, and rain water in it, with lots of leaves and stuff. She was already at the edge, swaying back and forth, giving me a last look, and she must have seen in my face, that it would NOT be a good idea to follow through (the yelling might have helped her decicion too), so she grudgingly left, and went inside, to cool down. Now she's sulking. Of course she did that very same thing, in past years, even as early in Spring, when there was still a fine layer of ice on the water, when she jumped and broke in. Of course at those moments I'm always home alone. Silly dog.
Sam on the other hand, is shadow jumping already. The only time he likes the sun is here in this bed. I think it's cute, he looks so comfortable. It just looks like the same picture, without the Kitty bag, but it's not.
Now that it's nice outside, and there's lots to do in the front, and back yard, I spent less time on the computer. I'm sure you all feel the same this time of year. When it will get really hot though, I'll be spending more time inside again. Did I mention I hate the heat?
I haven't touched the double knitting scarf in days. It's about 15 inches long. Since I didn't knit, I've spun, actually, I'm going back and finish plying it right now. Have a nice weekend!
