Weekends with dogs are often around here – and I love it…
At work the Monday morning office chatter between co-workers generally starts with –
And how was your weekend?
When they ask me, they’re always so considerate, they add –
with the Boys?
I guess it’s no secret that I adore spending time with them. #didyouwonder
The truth of the matter is – I like my Doods! They have this magical way of keeping me happy.
Getting together with human interaction is still high on my list 🙂 and on occasion I have been known to do something wild and spontaneous without leashes, treats or poop bags!
ROUTINE BE GONE –
Dogs love structure – but on the weekend we throw routine out the window and sort of swing to the swish of the tail.
Saturday mornings I still rise at dawn.
Our morning walk is purposely slow and long. It’s my way of letting them know we’re gonna be together for the day.
No need to rush. #mamaaintgoingnowhere
The temperature took a little dip this weekend – so it was the pawfect time for coffee, and instant egg nog from The Honest Kitchen…
Dehydrated goat’s milk, egg, honey and cinnamon. It smelled like the holidays and they lapped it up.
Hampton Park has 63 acres and is practically in my backyard. We are STILL exploring different paths and trails…
Doodle Dad dedicated his weekend to priming and painting the porch ceiling…
Harley slept most of the day away while Jaxson entertained himself. I bought him a go dog sonic stick which he loves and hates.
It lights up and whistles when he touches it. He’s not a huge fan, but curiosity can also kill a Doodle…
FOOD EXPERIMENTS –
I am trying to eat healthier. This means I try to buy healthier snacks. When I saw these crispy, crunchy broccoli florets at Trader Joes – I thought –
- Rice Bran Oil
Not a good combo for me – crispy and crunchy but they tasted weird. Even though they’re a little on the fatty side – the limited ingredients convinced me to give a piece to Harley who was staring me down. Both he and Jaxson LOVE it. So those two bags in the pantry will not go to waste.
SUNDAY FUNDAY –
After Church – Doodle Dad went back up the ladder…
…while my bookends followed me around the house as I cleaned, re-organized and instigated mini doodle romps in between.
Walking through the neighborhood – we found the local fresh produce bus on the corner. It was a welcomed surprise because I’m used to seeing them on Thursday…
The timing was doodletastic cause we were running low on apples. Jaxson likes it when I cut them up and toss the pieces in a little peanut butter.
But this was his first time selecting them himself…
I figured I’d buy some specialty sausage for Lee, and apparently Jaxson agreed…
…maybe the aroma of the sausage cooking will help pry him off that ladder #donchathink
ONE MORE THING –
Super happy to find a mobile book store (managed by this adorable Corgi in the photo) – now I have someplace “locally” to donate books to share…
Yep – weekends with dogs – for me – makes my days brighter.
It also leaves the nights #alltomyself…
Happiness is having a dog (or two) ❤️
