It being only me, the two puppies, and my hubby when he is not working; makes days here go by really quickly. It’s amazing how time flies in a small town where everything is super slow. A view from where I was walking one of the puppies the other day…
We’ve been having a lot of thunderstorms lately. We’ll be watching the television and an alert will interrupt the show saying beware severe thunderstorms in these areas. Last night it said there was a possibility of ping-pong sized hail for about two hours. We never experienced it though. Here’s a photo from the front of our house looking out at the rain. It is pretty amazing…
My job has been to make sure the puppies get exercise. Make sure they’re not fighting. Also I’m supposed to clean up the front and backyard, but the grass is not really growing in the places we put down seeds. Slowly everything will come together.
The fence is telling you where the nice grass is. Yeah, the green stuff is the neighbors yard.
We do have an apple tree in the backyard. It’s a crab apple tree, and it’s doing pretty well. I trimmed it a little bit ago and it seems to be thriving a little bit more. I tasted an apple a while ago it was not ripe, it tasted terrible. I did find out though that the puppies love to naw on them, just chew on them, but sometimes eat them.
All the fluff around the base of the tree comes from toys. You would be surprised that I’ve picked up fluff several times in the last two days. And sadly to say my slipper was also a victim. I will say this…I am happy I had the bright idea to only buy slippers worth $1.
So yeah my days are pretty much slow. I’m trying to do more things, but it just takes so much energy and I seem to not have enough energy. My puppies keep me on my toes all day. But thankfully my husband only has two more days this week and then he will have seven days off. His family is coming to visit, so that will be something new.
I just hope it’s not too long until I get to travel home and see my family. I miss them.
He approved for the name Burt!! So the new truck is officially named Big Burt!! 😎👍
Is he not cute❤️ He is just a big sweetheart to me. 😊
Finally my hubby is home. He was gone for 3 days and it felt like a lifetime…but he is home safe and sound. He brought with him a new toy that will last him quite a while. Men and their vehicles…😊
It’s a strange thing but my mother and I named her white van, Bessie and I’ve always wanted to name a car. But my hubby’s cars have always been his, this one is “ours”; even though I won’t be allowed to drive it for a while. I’m fine with that, I like being the passenger… being driven around like a princess. Awesomeness!!
But we are deciding upon a name. The Beast would be good but he already as a vehicle named that, and the Beast is a sweet-sweet. I like the name ‘Big Bertha’ or ‘Burt’ just because it sounds funny and awesome at the same time. He made a face at those names. So he might name it one thing, but when I eventually drive…beware of Big Bertha or Burt!!
Heading back to SoCal. I’m going to miss the crisp brisk weather here. This trip felt more like home, we got various dishes we needed…like coffee mugs. Coffee is a must. But I got to designate places in the kitchen for different dishes and food, and they will stay there until we visit again.
I’m having mixed emotions again. I want to go home to mother and family. And I actually miss my job, probably because I am now okay at it. And it’s home…but here is home as well. The snow and sun air, the neighborhood of peace and quiet, the open room with many opportunities to waiting….I’m conflicted.
But for now we are heading home and we finished the trip right…Arby’s!! Deliciousness!!its our tradition…
Can’t wait to see mama ❤️
Good bye until we head homeward…sort of…
Our journey begins…we are off to celebrate the marriage of my fiancé’ sister. We land in Boston and then his dad will come get us, from Portland.
I’m excited to continue my adventures of travel. But I’m super excited to continue to travel with the love of my life! 💕
More pictures to come 😊
