Thrills and Spills

It's been a busy week.
With having friends to stay we have been out and about more than usual.
Yesterday we met up with our Swedish friends to watch a car rally.
It was in a forest in the snow.
Sure to get some spills.
Following the spill, the driver tooted his horn
and people rushed over to help get the car back on the track.
We had a great time.
We took a barbeque
and some cakes and buns of course.

Susan and I got cold feet with standing around.
So Britmarie our Swedish friend broke some branches off a Pine tree for us to stand on.

It was amazing how that helped.

Our feet were much warmer.

Because of the cold, we left the dogs at home,

happily sleeping in the warm.

They still continue to enjoy all the extra attention that our visitors are giving them.

Sounds like you had a lovely time with your visitors. I think your dogs enjoyed the company too. Sure looks cold there. Hope you are staying safe and warm. I never thought about standing on branches to help keep your feet warm! Very interesting. :)
