Well, she is still sweet. And as I type sitting curled up around the base of my feet. It dawned on me today, as I walked Hubby up to his car as he went to work that parts of me are just not totally into the country living, just yet.
Like the garden that is constantly under construction....
Which to me, means no more dirt zone.
Well, with the last month of sun and nice weather I took the chance to work on planting and building and getting the new section of the garden ready. In the lower left is the swiss chard one of the community gardeners planted! It's doing wonderfully!! But the mud still needs to be addressed! Ooops!!!
But it's that puddle that is the culprit that we will soon be talking about.
This area is a long walkway around the hill that I have been digging out for the last 2 years!
I would like to stop and say I am totally confident that I will be victorious over this hill this year!!!
At least I will give it a good college try! Since I am doing it by wheelbarrow and shovel! :-(
It is also worth mentioning that this pathway has been adopted by Maggie as her personal runway from garden 2, to garden 3!! Which means, from the front door she has a clear path to run up to the garden and greet, through the fence, someone coming to visit, or a deer of which she has full permission to bark and scare it off!
During the month of sun and great weather, (oh how it passed so quickly) I totally forgot about the rain and that I would possibly be met at the door with this.......
|Hi Mom!!! Can I come in?|
She is literally caked in mud!!! From the runway that she loves to splash through! You can't be mad at her. She was running up to see off her Daddy!
But, it's a part of Country life that I really wasn't ready for nor did I ever really think of. Stopping, what ever you are in the middle of, because you have to spend the next 20 minutes cleaning your dogs paws and then heading in to throw the towels in the washer and then figure out what it was you were doing. And to think I am getting chickens in the near future!!
She wouldn't look at me...
|If I can't see you, you can't be mad at me!!|
Now give me the next paw!
|You still love me Mom?|
Mommy's always love their babies!
To which she starts to do this..... While I wash her paws, she decides she needs to wash mine!
And we both get a bath!!!
And I get back to my list. Laundry, bed sheets, Cupcakes, food packaging, vacuuming, and designing the hall closet! Because every vacuum cleaner needs a private place to sleep when not in use!
It's moments like this that make me want to start that cover over the porch!!
