Today was one of those days.

Not one of those days, but one of those days that make you incredibly thankful that you're alive. It got up to 60 degrees (woohoo!!!), the birds were chirping, the sun was out, everything smelled like spring. It was amazing.

I went on a walk with Sarge. He's a rather...interesting dog. He's not exactly dumb, but he has some quirky habits.
Like biting his leash.

He will just grab hold of it with his mouth and not let go. When that happened today, I tried to pull it out of his mouth...

...a game of tug of war broke out. Not that I really wanted to play it.

Finally he let go and walked normally. For most of the time.

But in the time he did walk normally, it gave me a chance to take some pictures.

As I was taking pictures, I realized that there are so many beautiful things that we see everyday but don't really notice.

From something as simple as kids playing hopscotch...

(I love those little feet) an amazingly blue sky... a quirky dog.

Makes me feel so thankful that I'm alive.
