I heard a rumor that there was a weekend???? Can anyone actually confirm that? LOL! As usual, we had a busy weekend. The two highlights were:
- Saturday, we went out to Middle Son and his wife’s house to meet their newest addition, a sweet dog named Hazel. They now have two dogs, Jett and Hazel. Jett is a Dude, where’s the party? kind of guy. While Hazel has a little more refinement to her. She’s still a puppy at about 10 months old, but she truly has old soul energy about her, very calm and centered. Maggie met her with no problem. It was a good morning there, but I didn’t take pictures because we were very focused on introducing the dogs right–and that includes walking them together, etc. I handed Wizard put my purse and phone to put in their house and forgot all about taking pictures until we left. I have to say, really admire my son and his wife, as they are both committed to having big, power breed dogs, but they make sure the dogs have consistent structure, training and are never exposed to aggressive behavior. As a result, they are very balanced dogs and a pleasure to be around. Jett, however, has no clue he’s a big dog, LOL! I was sitting on the floor talking to all the dogs, and Jett backed up to me, sat on my lap then leaned back so that I was holding him and rubbing his belly. So I was pretty much holding a 70 pound love bug. He’s absolutely ridiculous and irresistable at the same time.
- Sunday, Wizard went racing, and I went to Youngest Son’s house and helped my almost daughter-in-law put a special primer on the walls of one of the bedrooms. That particular room is bugging her allergies, but we’ll get it all fixed up. Man that girl works hard! She rolled the whole room while I did the trim work. Youngest was patching holes and texturing walls in that room, and in other rooms too. Plus he was moving the ladder around for me. I’m sure I’ll be a little sore today, but it’s been 9 1/2 months since my surgery, so I’m past having to worry about causing any real damage. It’s so nice to feel useful again!
That was the two highlights, and I’m back trying to work on my book around life. The stops and starts are really bad for being able to get into the story, but on the other hand, the time away has helped me to see more clearly how I can make my heroine stronger as my critique partner suggested. I’m just diving in and trying.
So that was my weekend, how was yours?
