Bright and early this morning, I wandered down to the garden with the dogs to pick a few cucumbers for a friend.
If you’re ever feeling sad and lonely, get a dog. Suddenly, you become the most amazingly interesting person in the world. Putting on you clothes each day is greeted with joy and excitement; a jaunt down to the garden is cause for veritable frenzy.
As I made my way back up with my bag of vegetables, Bogart and Cocoa started wrestling, and Bogart invited me to join in. I’m no fun, but that didn’t stop them from racing through the new flower beds leaving lillies and bark at my feet.
That gave me an excuse to dress up my table with the flowers they’d picked, my great-grandmother’s tea set, and an old silver tray.
These lillies were just too pretty to leave laying on the stairs. So thank you guys for picking them just for me.
I love how adding a centerpiece to our table saves it from becoming a catch-all. No longer is it the perfect place for mail, Baby Girl’s laundry, or all that other junk that stacks up throughout a day. Adding a little beauty keeps it nice.
In other news, me and the MR helped Sweet Miss move into a duplex with a bunch of her sorority sisters over the weekend. The truck was packed to bursting inside…
It was almost 100-degrees when we were moving all her stuff to her second floor room. I was quite thankful we’d brought a lot of kitchen items and furniture that were meant for the ground floor living space.
I’m sure SM and her buddies will fix the place up quite nicely, so I’ll save pictures until they’ve had a chance to get settled. Me and Baby Girl will be visiting in a few weeks when BG registers for classes just down the road.
We made it home from Oregon late in the afternoon of the fourth. Happy birthday America! And happy birthday to Little Buddy!
I’d say he’s looking pretty good for 12 years old. We’ve noticed a lot more chewing on tennis balls over chasing them these last few years, but he’s still going strong. We love you Bo-Bo.
How was your holiday weekend? Anyone give you flowers lately?
