Sit Pretty!

Maisie says "thankie thankie" for all your sweet wishes about her healed toetoe. Here she is on Saturday...being a good girl and sitting pretty. It was 74 degrees here in Boulder on Saturday. What a spring teaser that was...because yesterday we had three inches of snow and it was a whopping 28 degrees!

Take a look at this beautiful sculpture below. I took this photo on Saturday in Niwot which is about 20 mintues north of us. James and Maisie and I have a favorite breakfast spot up there we go to most weekends and we've had the pleasure of seeing this amazing work in progress. This sculpture honors Arapaho Chief Niwot whom the community was named after and who helped negotiate peace there during the 1850's and 60's. When you see this up close and personal...it is stunning.

Miss Maisie looks infinitely pretty and HAPPY to have that cast off! Love the sculpture, too! Is that made of wood? Geez... that must have been hard to do. Hugs, Shari

Look at Maisie!!! So cute. Pono doesn't sit up like that - I don't know why but I've never been able to teach him that one. That is an incredible sculpture!

Maisie is amazing for sitting like that. Like Pono, Lytton hasn't managed to learn this.

It's great to see Maisie healthy again.

Beautiful carving -
