A day in the life...

* with largely unrelated photos. Like for real, these photos have barely anything to do with the written words accompanying them. ;)

DSC_0428

Wake up.

DSC_0439

Hear my insanely adorable kiddo get up, go potty, get his underwear, return to his room, get into his newly renovated closet where everything he needs is in his reach and talk himself through getting dressed.

DSC_0431

Laugh at his sweetness when he finally comes to my room and announces "I got clothes on Momma!"

Feed son. Feed cats. Feed dogs. Feed self.

DSC_0445

Watch from kitchen window as a squirrel approaches a bowl of acorns that has been sitting on top of our covered wood stove on the patio for months (why?! Who knows...).

DSC_0195

Watch as bowl falls and shatters on the patio.

DSC_0196

Think coffee. Think pie. Then think pie is almost gone. Better make another pie.

DSC_0237

Marvel at kiddo's beautiful imagination. Marvel at the relative peace of a house with a kiddo, 4 dogs, and 2 cats. Relative peace. ;)

DSC_0347

Read books with kiddo, smile as he recites book titles.

DSC_0146

Move furniture around in preparation for Christmas decorating.

DSC_0392

Lunch. Just for humans. Silly doggies...lunch is for humans.

Finally get coats on son, self, and 2 doggies (2 other doggies having quiet time) and head out to clean up shattered glass on patio.

DSC_0348

Sally shows fear of stepping out onto metal steps; lift her up, put her down on steps and ignore odd noise as she takes off across yard.

DSC_0407

Clean up glass.

DSC_0344

Watch kiddo, and 2 doggies play and run in yard.

DSC_0339

Grow a brain and finally notice the bloody stump on Sally's back left leg where a nail once was.

DSC_0376

Run to metal steps, immediately find entire nail. Eeewwwwww. {Feel free to leave a comment thanking me for saving you any photographic evidence. ;) }

DSC_0328

Take Sally inside for an abbreviated bath, which she hates as much as a full bath. Go figure. Clean wound. Giggle at her apparent consternation over the cleaning, but not so much over the wound itself.

DSC_0329

Kiss her snout and forehead repeatedly. Watch her forget the cleaning too. =)

DSC_0396

Put Sally to quiet time, release other 2 doggies. Watch 3 doggies and kiddo play in yard.

DSC_0335

Bring them all in...thinking about coffee and pie again...and watch kiddo pretend he is a dog. {Don't worry, he alternately pretends he is a frog, or has a camera, or that he went to a museum.}

DSC_0402

Blog about it. ;p

DSC_0147

Exciting business right?!

**Okay, this represents only about half a day, and I'm sure I left out a bunch of minutiae, which I'm sure you all don't miss. At any rate...exciting?! Maybe it's all relative...

Totally love the blog! And that picture of Sally jumping over Mel is adorable; she is tiny!! Oh and the one of Grady with his tongue out! lol

Great post - I love the pictures of the dogs chasing each other around the tree. How in the world do you get them to leave their cute coats on? Mine would be tearing them off of each other in seconds, no matter how cold it gets. I hope Sally is fully recovered from her injury now!
