a Good Friday

Walk Towards

Grace & I took a Good Friday nature walk.
It was extra Good because the sun is shining & I wore my red shoes.

the Sign points the way

The signs tells us which way to go; even the little bicycle people point the right direction!
There could easily be another arrow, pointing to my home which is just a few steps away from this sign.

stalwart Grace

Grace loves it when she gets to go off-leash.
This only happens when no other dogs are around & so she can be a little nutter with no fallout.
She was extra good; keeping guard and looking shiny.

But not as shiny as my favourite old pair of red shoes!

Grace boofs & a pair of red shoes

Grace boofed up a storm when I asked her to dance.
I wish I had gone to video mode, so you could see her spinning & hopping & boofing!

Spring comes alive in Bokeh!

The spring buds were in full force, with pretty bokeh spots swirling around.

A doily in her hair

And I wore my new doily fascinator that Mel of Needle & Nest Design made!
It suits my go-to hide-my-growing-out-hair hat perfectly!
I also got the necklace you see below, which Mel also made (isn't she amazing!?).
It is so very pretty, full of lace & vintage findings. I have named her Bella.

Walk Away

And Grace & I walked home again, with lungs full of fresh air and happy tails tales to tell.

I hope your Easter weekend starts (and middles & ends) as wonderfully, 
finding (or re-finding) the little joys around you as you walk along.
