Take It Easy...

Monday was spent doing mostly nothing. I kept the outside girls company for part of the day, and paid lots of attention to the pups and Handsome. I tended my garden for a bit, and then did a little needlework. I set the stitching aside when my hand started to bother me. I was taking it easy.

We both had hair appointments right in the middle of the day yesterday, so even though Handsome told me "we need more bread", that had to wait until today. After our appointments, Handsome and I took all the pups outside and I tended my garden. Tomatoes have buds, peas have sprouted, green peppers are looking healthy, and my radishes were ready to thin. My plans today are bread and laundry. That should keep me plenty busy. If there's time left later, I'll continue to work on this piece.

What do you have planned for the day? Do you have a garden this year? Perhaps a needlework piece is holding your attention these days? I'd love to know!

Tuesdays With Tag - Watchin' The River Flow...


Hi, Greetings, and Salutations, Everybody!

Well, I'm late again. Hard to believe isn't it? Especially considerin' that I'm spendin' most of my days doin' absolutely nothin'! Blame Mom, 'cuz I don't have any idea how to turn on her computer. 

I'm spendin' most of my days eatin', runnin' and sleepin', and great days on the porch just watchin' the river flow. The cats love me, and Claudette really wants to cuddle up with me when I'm out here, but I can't be seen as weak. I have to hold the line and get up whenever she sidles up to me. Crystal keeps her distance, so I do, too. Sharp claws, you know.

It's been kinda cool at night, and the temperatures are just right durin' the day, so Boo, The Kid and I haven't been lobbyin' to go swimmin', but trust me - those days are comin', so Dad better be lookin' for the perfect place for us to cool off.

In the meantime, I'll be makin' sure that we all stay safe from the mailman, UPS driver, FedEx driver, random dudes turnin' around in our driveway, and critter visitors. My bark is fierce, and I always go for the ankles. No one is safe! (I'm bein' silly. I really don't bite, but I do bark my fool head off when any of these interlopers appears.)

Mom said we're goin' for a walk now, so I'm gonna shut down my post for this week. I'm crossin' my paws that we all find somethin' to do in the next week that might be worth writin' about. (Well, I could have told you about the cheeky raccoon that keeps comin' on the porch, tryin' to steal the barn girls' food. I'll save that for another day.)

I'll see you again in seven. 'til then... 
"Be A Good Dog."

...And Then I Rested...

Wild Roses Growing In Our Field

I consider Saturday a success. I had good sales, with most of the activity (for all the vendors) in the morning. The afternoon was quieter, but it was a gorgeous day, and I suspect many prospective shoppers chose to enjoy the weather rather than shop. I sold some of the items I really hoped to, and came home with less than what I took, so I'm happy. 

I was really tired by the time I'd loaded my wares to come home, so we had a quiet evening and I went to bed early. Sunday was mostly a day of rest. I'll be unloading my Explorer today and then I'll list some of the items I brought back home into my Etsy shop. 

I'm going to take it easy the next few days, so I'll catch up on all your comments soon. Thanks so much for checking in. You know I always appreciate you!
