Fun with Bailey

I had unexpected visitors yesterday–youngest son and Bailey dog–and I ended up getting nothing done.

This is a picture from last summer, but he was in the pool with us. Well actually, he stepped on me as I was laying on the raft.  Just stood on my stomach.  He doesn’t really like the pool, so I was surprised.

Then youngest son went out to see friends and I dogsat  poor Bailey. He frets and worries when they leave him, even with me.  But then we went out back and chased lizards (Bailey chased them, I stood there and laughed).

But no words got written and no prep for Wizard and my weekend plans. So frustrating, but how can I ignore Bailey (and my son!)?  Ah well, that’s what today is for! And I guess I’ll just have to wait until next week to get back to my dragon project :-)

Hope you all have a great weekend! I’ll be back online Monday or Tuesday!

    Yay for day spent with Bailey dog! And sometimes, a writer needs a day (or four) to get away, put the Muse on autopilot (but be sure to hide her scissors!) and go with the flow. Relax. Enjoy. Come back next week with new ideas, new direction, and be ready to tackle dragons. Have I mentioned I love dragons? Just sayin’…. :wink:

    Silver, the dog is wearing me out :-) I’m just frustrated because something is always interrupting my writing lately. But I do love seeing my kid and Bailey!

    Hope you’re feeling better now.

    I hope you have a fantastic weekend. Sunday I’m getting my grand puppy to babysit. My eldest and his wife are at comic con and poor PeeWee is being passed amongst the family until they get back Monday night.

    Silver true, but I feel behind the curve on this! It’s taken longer than it should.
