Could it really be spring?

The weather went from super-windy and a little cold to absolutely gorgeous today. The temperature got up to about 16C - far above the 3C norm for this time of year - and the sun was shining and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. It was so beautiful outside and everyone and their dog and their baby was out enjoying the lovely weather.

Ian took Gozer out for a very long walk this morning and our poor little dog was tired for the whole day. It didn't help that we were out in the afternoon enjoying the spring-like weather and she ended up getting a little hot. She's still wearing her scruffy, long winter coat and it's way too hot out there for that. When we got home I gave her an ice cube to help her cool down a bit. She likes eating the ice balls off her feet so I figured she'd like a regular ice cube and I was right :)

It's going to be gorgeous this week with highs in the upper teens (Celsius). With it being so warm, I need to start getting the garden ready for spring. We've had good weather before now but it hasn't been this warm yet this year so it's a good time to get work done out there. I'm pretty sure Gozer won't mind hanging out outside while I do work. There's lots to sniff there and it'll be warm enough so that she should be comfortable.

I think it's time for her to get her hair cut in a lovely short summer style so that she doesn't overheat. She's also looking kind of scruffy no matter how often I comb her because her hair curls back together - and of course it curls differently in different places. She's always cute but she looks a little more refined when she has short hair.

I hope the weather stays at about these temperatures for a long time.. it would be so nice to go out and it not be too hot or too cold.
