fuzzy friday: lucy goosey

The last three weeks have been a whirlwind of gardening, packing, vacationing, unpacking, and further gardening.  But I'm back and refreshed!  To prove it, I managed to snap off a few pictures of my newest charge, Lucy, a three-month-old Swiss mountain dog.  She doesn't stop moving if someone is looking at her.  YOU try taking a picture behind your back and see how it turns out.
 Can't you just feel the pent up energy that's about to erupt? 
Nanoseconds later, she jumped and almost took out the camera

So far, Lucy is afraid of: the sidewalk, rustling leaves, cars, car alarms, car doors, lawn-care workers, and on occasion, the wind.  It's normal for very young puppies to go through a scaredy-cat phase.  Until it's over, I'll just keep quietly enjoying being the person she hides behind during her morning walk.

it's beginning

Seeding is stressful.  After all that work, you're left with trays of labeled dirt to tend for weeks, wondering if anything will come of them.  I fuss over them every day.  But hope springs eternal for my broccoli which has already germinated.  
Thanks broccoli!  Keep fighting the good fight!

fuzzy friday: oodles of wrinkles

It's been an interesting week. Business picked back up after school vacation week and I've been bone tired.  Thanks in part to Bubba, an English bulldog who looks like a tough guy but really just wants to be loved.  
Next week, I'll be posting two stories that developed during this busy week: my new doctor-imposed dietary restrictions and how we canceled cable (!)  Till then, have a restful weekend.  That's what I plan on doing
