Beautiful Day!

I finally went to bed last night at 1:30 after spending 2 hours untying a knot that Charlie created. It took me forever! I was at my computer, minding my own business, when I turned around to see my yarn in the living room even though the scarf it was attached to was in the bedroom. So I spent all night rolling it into a ball. Not to mention redoing the rows she had pulled out. The little punk.

This morning Charlie and I went to Petsmart because her nails were incredibly long. This is the first really nice day we've been in the car, and Charlie has discovered her love of wind.


When we stopped at a red light she noticed there were people next to us and turned into her whiny self. She didn't understand why she couldn't say hello. They got a good laugh out of it and so did I.


As I was in petsmart I was chastised by an employee for not having my pup under control. She was right, but c'mon. So Charlie and I are starting our regime of improvement, which will include: not jumping on others, walking nicely, and not starting fights. Wow - she sounds like a bad dog when you put it all together like that. But I can already see her learning.

After coming back from our ride, she was pretty pooped and spend some quality time on the balcony while I finished NCIS.


I love the spring. It's always welcome. I love wearing jeans and a t-shirt and being completely comfortable. I love cool evenings and campfires. I love the smell of mulch. I love the sunset in the backyard on a cool night. I love the smell of freshly cut grass. I love cutting the grass. I'll have to take the mower hostage when I'm home some weekend and cut the ol' grass again. I don't think the old folks will mind ;)


  1. Ah, good pictures. Ya, I was thinking we need to have a spring cmap fire night some Friday. And the old folks don't mind you mowing some weekend.

  2. The old folks in Illinois don't mind you mowing their 2 acres either!
