A Man and His Dogs

My hubby is such a good Doggie Daddy! And his dogs are hopelessly devoted to him. He is their favorite human by far. He was here when I brought Miss Jessie home from the pound almost eight years ago. Took about 30 seconds for them to bond.

Before we married I would pack up the kid, the car and the dog (and usually something baked) and we'd head down south (about 40 minutes away) to see Geoff. The minute I turned down his street, Miss Jessie would begin to whine and wiggle around because she knew exactly where we were going. She would burst through the door and race around till she found him.

I am fortunate to overhear many tender moments between man and dog. My masculine man cooing things like "she's a good girl, yes she is" and "love the puppy girl." The dynamic is a bit different with Juneau, being that he's a boy dog. There is a lot of rough housing, tugs of war with ropes, and tonight I overheard him say to Juneau "great, come sit here and pant in my ear, I love that."

He's a good guy. The dogs (and I) are blessed to have him in our lives.

Bumper of My SUV Song

Anyone who knows me knows I am big on songs. Not music, but songs. Music I know nothing about, only that my tastes are quite eclectic. This is a beautiful tribute to all our troops.

Long Time.....No Blog

I'm not sure why it's been so long since I've posted. Perhaps I felt I didn't have anything interesting to say. But that's okay, every day life can be interesting too.

We had a wicked heat wave but today got amazing thunder and some raindrops, too. My neighbor had a baby boy. Another neighbor lost her brother and we helped dog-sit while she was away. My son became even more interested in how his hair looks, and took a few showers without being told to. My friend Kay moved and is now five minutes away from me. I will get to see her "to do" lists much more often.

Business has been steady and I got my office (well, half of it) cleaned out and reorganized. Our garden has really begun to produce and tonight we had a green salad with snow peas, carrots, green onions and tomatoes - all from the garden. I used to say I didn't like tomatoes, but these were amazingly good.

School starts in two weeks and my son is actually looking forward to it. His last year of middle school. There are about 110 kids in the whole school. It's very Little House on the Prairie-ish and we love it.

Miss Jessie and Juneau are doing great, always something new and entertaining with them.

There you have it ~ my every day life.
