Good lord. I need a vacation after the awesome, but jam-packed, weekend I just had!!
Saturday morning was field hockey…during the winter we play inside a dome
After hockey I went to a MUCH needed hair appointment to a) cover up all the grey (sigh!!) and b) to chop off over 5 inches!!
Then I had drinks with a friend of mine, Ashley, who I used to work with. We now only see each other every 6 months or so, so these get togethers are POWER gossip sessions on our lives!!
You take cheese strings and you freeze them
The party I brought these to was my annual street party – I seriously have the best neighbours. But let me tell you, every year, without fail, there is too much wine consumed…this year, I couldn’t even make it out for my long run on Sunday!! And Abby obviously sense my need and actually let me snooze in bed until 10am!!!
I finally got up and moving and headed out to a town about an hour from my house. It’s where Abby’s mom lives! I have remained close with the breeder and every time she has a new litter (not from Abby’s mom – she has long since retired from that lol), I get to go out and play with…
And then I spent some quality time with the adults she has in the house…normally they aren’t interested in outsiders who come into the home (as they are truly a pack – so much so that I usually don’t bring Abby out with me when I visit because there would be a huge dog fight), but the breeder says it’s like they know how much I love them and as soon as I come into their space, they are all over me!
And then I had some one on one time with Abby’s mom, Velvet, who is 9 years old and just as much of a character as Abby is!
After the puppy love fest, I headed home, picked up Abby, dropped her off at my parents’ place so she wouldn’t be alone anymore, and headed over to BSM’s house…he cooked me a steak dinner…bbq in December is like the biggest treat ever!! And, knowing that I’m not a huge dessert fan, except for pure chocolate….he got me chocolate for dessert…but didn’t know which kind I like best (he does now! lol) so he covered all the bases! This man is not dumb. lol
