I thought I’d share a few updates and pics from the week!
Our life in the military, my hubby is a pilot in the AF, means my hubby is often gone. He was gone last week and this was Toby’s sad look as he laid by the front door waiting for him to come home! And, I’m very pleased to say he seems to like my new rug! Or, at least he’s dealing with it!
I did not bring this leaf into the house and onto the carpet. It traveled through the kitchen and living room and halfway down the hallway almost to my office. Grrr….. Keeping a floor clean is nearly impossible with a hairy dog who sheds and brings the outside IN! This picture has definitely spiked my interest in taking a pic of the living room floor covered in his toy mess….teeny little pieces all over the place. This scares me when I think ahead to having a crawler who wants to stuff everything into her mouth! I’m shaking in my boots!
In November, I posted a pic of my front door and my minimal Fall decorations. I also said that my Welcome Mat that we got when we were married in 2004 was SAD, SAD, SAD and it was time for a new one! So, you can imagine my excitement over replacing it!!! I am cheap, or thrifty, depending on perspective! So, I had to find a good deal but I also have a rule that I will not bring things into my home that I do not LOVE. I LOVE this new welcome mat! I liked the well-placed [placed by the wind, not by me] leaf on there when I took the pic but I don’t love it now. I think I should have moved the leaf. Details. Details. I love how my new rug matches my entry and it’s just ME! Love it!
So, to take the pic above I had to open the front door. Toby LOVES to go out the front door and explore the front yard. NOT this day! I wanted him to stay put. I picked the wrong time of day to take this pic because I couldn’t get him and the welcome mat in the same pic with the glares in the mid-afternoon sun. I still thought this pic below was hilarious. He was sitting so perfect, hoping to get the chance to run out the front door! It cracked me up! I had to share it. I often think we only trained him to “Sit” & “Stay” so I could get good photos of him or make him sit/stay outside of the frame of the pic I’m trying to take without him! WHAT A GOOD DOG!!!! [He definitely got a treat for his efforts!]
What did you buy this weekend??? How do your animals/kids act when your other half is away??? Link away to your fun pics on your blogs from your weekend!
I’m off now to buy my new lens from B&H Photo!! I saved up to buy it and can’t wait to use it!!! I opted not to rent it first so let’s hope I love it….I have a very strong feeling it will be perfect!!!
