In these past three months, I have taken more time, even than I normally would to reflect.
It is a good thing.
Friday I took our dog Meaka with me, to run a few errands, and then took the long way home;')
A very light snow was falling and it made for a lovely ambiance, as I drove along in the quiet on Winter, while listening to classical music and enjoying a nice cup of hot peppermint mocha...it was a peaceful time, time that I enjoyed very much.
This Wednesday, our little world is going to have a forever change made to it.
Our 8 week old Long Coat German Shepherd shall be flying in from Iowa.
Gräfin Silvie Aleit Vom Dettmer von Tingsgrove
Gräfin Meaka Vom Warfenburg of Tingsgrove
and the husby and myself, along with our 2 cats
Spencer Ivy and Survhee Pipka.
This coming May ending, shall be 5 years since we contacted the breeder, and we are so happy to finally be bringing our new pup-cub home.
No doubt images of her shall appear on my Mosaic Monday entry next week, if not sooner. Hmm, wonder if I can somehow have her appear in my SkyWatch Friday post...that is if I have time to post.
New puppies need lots of attention.I shall be forever grateful to Theresa Dettmer of:

Awe following our dear friend Bob's question in comments.
I thought that I should let everyone know that our Meaka is fine!
She is just past her 5th birthday and we adore her so much.
It was perfect timing to bring a second dog into our lives, hearts and home.
Meaka will make a wonderful big sister to Silvie.
Not to worry, all is well~
I am linking up with Mary for:
As the light snow fell, I captured this Eastern Meadowlark, Red-winged Blackbird, Red-tailed Hawk and American Kestrel, as I drove from Prospect toward LaGrange in Oldham County~
I was just a few miles from home, driving up a very pretty country lane, when a few
White-tailed Deer ran across in front of me.
They were heading for the fence at the back of some property when the buck suddenly turned back and started to run toward me again.
It was kind of funny, watching him try to make up his mind which way he was going to go.
I found something quite interesting with him to.
Can you see that his legs look like they have white stockings?
In all of my years of observing these deer, I had never seen that before.
Nearly home now, in a field were hundreds of European Starlings. I know they can be really messy, but I also think that when they are in their Winter colours they are striking birds.
Happy Monday, Happy Mosaic Monday, Happy Week~
