bog and rovers run...oldies but goodies
a picture from another day with the sunshining in. gotta get your sunshine in when you can. today i took both dogs to the bog (baxter bog by my house) and then took blossom off to rovers fun. always fun out there. lots of activity some days. skiers, ski-jourers, walkers, dogs...no moose to day. mostly, just blossom, me and the beloved yell0w ball.
not much makes a doodle happier than chasing that yellow ball. she loves to visit people she meets on the trail too. she is one friendly dog. walked a bit with an older english gentleman. i've run into him before. when we moved on, blossom was hesitant as she seems to want to keep a group together....whether they really are a group or not.
the sun was setting as i drove down tudor headed to home and the grocery. i had to stop and snap off a few pictures. thought it quite lovely. this open area is just down the road from my place. often i see moose out here as i drive to/from work. also occasionally you will spy a dog team cruising by out there. not today.
i've really got to work on the laundry some more so i have someplace to sleep tonight. i love fresh sheets and if i were rich and famous my help would be washing my sheets with great regularity. i have no help though so unlike oprah ( who apparently gets fresh sheets daily) i have to be satisfied with fresh sheets every week or two. i snagged some play dough from work. actually, we were getting stuff for the downs girl in the adult icu and i just couldn't hand it over. i find the smell of play dough intoxicating and i really don't think she could have worked the playdough anyway....what with the puffy hands and all. that is what i'm telling myself anyway. really, i just love the smell. i also love patchoulli and often get it mixed in lotions at the body shop. they have great stuff there. doubt they have play dough scented lotion though...hmm.
so a less than exciting day...laundry, dishes, vacuuming, carpet cleaning...! have a few little packages ready to mail, hopefully tomorrow. can't believe my days off are flying past me so quickly. tomorrow gym, really...unless i go for a late afternoon ski. i always figure it's better to be outside doing activities than in a gym, but i really could do both. i really should considering i'm paying for the dang gym and it's not cheap.
should i watch a movie or just read and crash? i was on the phone a bit today. i chatted with my sister and my friends michelle and natalie. always fun to catch up. i'm not a texter at all...i still prefer the phone to the ear thing. i'm not attached to the cell phone either. i love the peace and quiet that comes when you just tune out all noise. i often drive in the car without the radio on. the cell is great to carry around in case i get kicked by a moose or run into a tree or something. well, i hear that dryer winding down and i'm getting sleepy. i'll finish off my apple and happily decorated animal crackers and head to bed....
