Happy Easter, friends!  🐇  My BFF Brunhilda teamed up with the Easter Bunny this year to fill my Easter basket with delicious fresh-picked dandelions!  🌼😋🐢

The last pen in Mom’s giant stash is my favorite:  Look at how deliciouser, I mean, friendly this pen buddy* is!

* Pen buddy was a present from friend Samwise many years ago!  Sadly pen buddy is dried out now.  :/

Quarantine Diaries Day 11 & 12⁠
⁠ 

Yesterday I woke from my beauty nap and was in the most wonderful SUN puddle! YAY SUN! I stomped to go investigate my outdoor kingdom. What I found there can only be classified as a quarantine miracle! Greens sprouting from the ground! I could hardly contain my joy but I put on my inspector tort hat (its there you just can’t see it) cause I had work to do. ⁠
⁠ 

I’ve been working hard, taste tasting every leaf that has sprouted, in order to ensure its quality. So far all leaves have received my approval.  It’s a tough job but some tort has to do it. ⁠

Look, Mom!  I found a box of critter stamp markers in your marker stash!  These markers are mostly dried out, too, but they still kind of work if you STOMP them hard enough!

To my delight, our package from friend (Iri)epsi (@epsifawnshawn) included a sparkly and super yummy surprise!

Daffodils, Part 2
(Part 1 here)

Spring means flowers means noms?  🌼👀😋🤔

☺️  Happy International Day of Happiness, friends!  ☺️

⚠️ All daffodil parts are toxicNo snacking on daffodils occurred (despite strenuous trying…).

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  ☘️  May you all be blessed with good health, good luck, and good cheer today and every day!  🌈💚

Mom let me inspect her decorating job on a big sugar cookie shamrock.  I give these pretty green sprinkles and frosting my hearty CHOMP of approval!  🍪☘️😋

〰️➿〰️

❗️  Do not actually feed cookies to your shelled friends!  Mom took this cookie away before I got any in my tummy.  😫

Beware the Ides of March!  The weather was finally warm enough for me to venture outside, but my STOMPs were ill-fated…
