A cold snap!

Well ... there's been a sudden drop in temperature over the last few days.
Some clothes pegs left outside in the laundry basket, where water had gathered, were suspended in a sheet of ice yesterday.
 I'd hate to miss a photo-opportunity!  And this kind of thing doesn't come around all that frequently.
You'd imagine that after a day of above zero temperatures the ice would have melted ... but ... not so!  This morning there's still a thin sheet from which some pegs have dropped ... but clearly the entire day yesterday and last night continued to be very cold.
It seems that the cold does not deter Eliot from his daily ritual of digging a little deeper ...
This is the second hole he's begun ... so there must be something very interesting buried in the back garden.  He didn't stay out for very long ... and neither did I!
 So, with a few indoor shots of the dog the day has begun and I'm off to do some hospital visits ... Eliot will simply go to his bed under the table and hopefully sleep until I return.  If the sunshine continues he might even get a decent walk this evening now that the days have lengthened considerably.
Enjoy the spring days!
The Collect of the Fourth Sunday in Lent ...
Lord God 
whose blessed Son our Saviour 
gave his back to the smiters 
and did not hide his face from shame: 
Give us grace to endure the sufferings of this present time 
with sure confidence in the glory that shall be revealed; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
