I watched him set his tennis ball there.

day after the show—> week

 

my dad and his friends camped out in the yard and when i woke up i got this full randomly placed new coffee out of the deal (it didn’t have all those stains on it when i originally took it)

i had just been thinking, “I could go for a coffee” and bam. there were two!!!

they must have gotten up at like 5 am to leave but my dad came back over later in the day to clean up more stuff. we had fun.

I was helping my neighbor Jenny with some of her gardening/dirt and it was really fun. Blue was helping, too, as you can see. 🙂 He’s very earnest.

Clouds look like sandy beaches in the sky.

No matter how similar, they are always new.

Strangely enough, these cloud pics are my favorite. I could look at just these forever.

I actually used this shovel. It felt like the kind in movies where people get hit with one, and they’re down. (For good). It was that heavy. I love solid metal things and DIRT!!!!!

IMG_6766

The most beautiful dirt in the world. I bathed in it. (Kind of literally.)

IMG_6776

Most helpful in the world. (Ya. Okay.)

His version of gardening.

Yard

Blue had us all home and outside with him today; he loves it when Jenny is home, too, especially, and out in the yard. And I went upstairs and laid down (on one of his beds) for a little while, and when I came back down, I saw SOMEONE had stopped over and given him a raw marrow bone (the second love of his life, beside me– I meant the bone, not the person, but he loves this person, too– it’s my dad).

Blue is THE most blessed dog in the whole entire world. I love him SO much. SO INCREDIBLY MUCH. I would mainline him if I could.

Here’s a picture from earlier today when one of his neighborhood friends had escaped into our yard, and he barked to get him in trouble then came inside and cuddled with me until Oliver’s dad came over (on his TRACTOR) and retrieved him.

I was laughing at the whole thing because Blue was being a tattle-tale, and also, I lucked out because somehow he decided it was necessary for him to come inside and sit on my lap and watch the drama go down from in there.

I am not kidding even a little bit when I say that watching Oliver’s dad bring him back home ON HIS LAP whilst riding the tractor was one of my all-time favorite things I have ever seen. I WISH I had gotten a pic but by the time they rode past the window, it was already too late.

But honestly, a once-in-a-lifetime viewing, for sure.

(Well, one can always hope.)

Blue being haughty about the fact that he “listens”.

Safe inside from the hubbub. (NOTHING was actually going on.)

I am in the blue. I can never argue when he wants to cuddle. Even if he IS being dramatic.
