This weekend was spent up in southern Maine on the coast. I managed to get in some saddle time on my new steathly painted Cervelo and also got to spend some much needed quality time with my sister and her family.
Here I am with her Golden Retriever, Parker. I like this picture for one reason: I discovered after this picture was taken today,Parker and I have the same color hair. So from now on, I will be describing my bottle blond hair as, Golden Retriever light ash blond.

While we're at it, here is my sister with Parker. Sadly, she does not have Golden Retriever light ash blond hair going on up there which would be more appropriate since she is the owner of this very fine canine specimen

This photo speaks volumes I imagine, so will leave it at that.

And just to prove to you that even in Maine, the snow is nothing but a memory and the trees and flowers are showing promise of longer days and warm sun.
Have a great week!

Thanks for the hydration tip.

Parker is such a Golden--always looking for a soft spot in the sun to sleep. Can you believe there are still spots with snow here? I am wearing my down jacket still and it was too darn cold to take advantage of free Ben and Jerry's today.

Ohhh!!! Parker looks like my sister's old Golden, his name was Scout and he was SO mischievous (we'd be eating and he'd eat the napkin off our lap!). looks like you guys had a gorgeous day and even before you wrote about the "golden retriever light ash blonde" I was like WOW they have the same color hair! Hehe!!

So glad it's warming up out there!! When is your first big race!? Thanks for always leaving such cute comments on my blog!! I've been slowing down in the blog world, but hopefully i'll pick it back up soon!
