Relax

Yesterday was pretty amazing. A sweet dog was picked up to go to a new home, so that was the best part of my day. After that, anything else was like toppings on ice cream. Ysabela and I were invited down to have a burger off the grill. As I have mentioned, I don’t do a lot of voluntary socializing, but I always have a nice time with Stacey and Glenn. It makes it even better that our girls are great friends.

I had a blast just relaxing for a change. I’m usually high-stress; it’s easy to forget how nice it feels to sit back and relax with friends. Glenn was so funny my stomach hurt from laughing. I took a few “stealth” pictures with my cell phone and sent them to Stacey’s cell. I almost got whacked with a spatula for my trouble! Glenn doesn’t like his picture taken! I don’t care what he says, I’m posting the best one from yesterday. Stacey, this one’s for you!

Thankfulness

I have been planning a trip for the last few weeks. It causes a lot of stress to make sure things are lined up and will work. It’s hard to replace me at my house! My first concern is always making sure my furry kids are taken care of in my absence. I am thankful there’s a dog boarding facility in our small town. Koko’s Palace is a safe, happy place for Boxita and Chance. I am also thankful to have a great neighbor who will be in daily to care for the other critters we have. Our furry, four-legged “children” are considered family around here!

Now that I think about it, I have a lot of reasons to be thankful—people who want us to visit, good friends, a car, a roof over our heads, food in the cabinets and freezer, work that I enjoy, people who read my blog 🙂 and even more.

All that remains is to fill the tank, get some rest and have a safe trip.
