MELLOW MONDAYS

These are the sort of weeks I like, when they start out with Mellow Mondays!

In addition to being a FT Doodle Mom, my weekends can get rather hectic.  I am active with the Senior Ministry in our church, and DH sometimes can be stretched pretty thin with his many social and civic commitments. This past weekend all our projects and activities seemed to collide, having us pulled in different directions for extended periods of time.

Rarely is everyone in “Doodleville” (surrogate family included) over extended with prior engagements. Usually I have someone on “reserve status” to jump in and assist with bathroom breaks if I know I can’t make it back to relieve these two…

Don’t let this innocent look fool you…

This weekend was so “overbooked” our daughter had to pitch hit for me at a formal banquet with DH, because I was neck deep in a major event at our church. When these rare occasions occur, The Boys get to spend 24 hours in the lap of luxury pawcationing at “Hotel” Olde Towne Pet Resort

I think Harley sees someone he knows

Not quite sure what all they do while they’re there, but once I pick them up, Sunday evening and Monday morning are pretty much spent like this…

This is what you call “paralyzed with fatigue”

The “good news” is that I get a chance to catch up on some much needed rest and reading (yup, still reading the book CHASER and yes it’s good!). The “better news” is that neither Leo nor Harley seem to care!

So as the moon moved into its position Sunday – Harley snuggled up under an unoccupied blanket, and I thought: “Hot dig-gity doodle” I’m going to have an uninterrupted evening!

I’m talking out like a LIGHT

I’ll need it though, because Tuesday they’ll be pinging off the walls, but that’s a totally different blog post.

Playing “catch-up” in my in-box, I did find a pretty nifty project that I thought I’d like to try, (thanks to “Scout” and our furrends at BarkBox)- so of course I felt the need to share.

This would actually be pawsome to use when I’ve got The Boys with me, you know – snacks, water, poop bags, wet ones, need I go on? Plus, it’s sure to be a great conversation piece…

Can’t explain it, but I think this is pawdorable

It caught my attention because The Boys eat ACANA dog food. I’m sure you could use any dog food bag you wanted.

Hope you’re Monday is everything you wanted it to be, thanks for reading…

    That’s pretty cute! My guys eat Acana too and love it!
    Glad to hear you got some relaxing time in while the doodles rested up 🙂

      Hi Jen –
      Yup, I had a great day! Today (Monday) was truly a “Mellow Monday” I spent the day with my Mom and the Boys chilled with DH.
      What variety of Acana do you use? The Boys eat Lamb and Organic Apple, I love the food.
      Take care my friend
