I decided to take an impromptu break this holiday weekend and spent it outside in the sunshine. My husband and I had decided our vegetable planters were in need of a serious overhaul this year so after a trip to Home Depot we were in business. Unfortunately, with a slipped disc, all I was good for was supervising, keeping the dogs entertained and providing refreshments but he didn't complain.
With the long winter we'd had I'd almost forgotten about all the critters that come out to play at this time of the year. There seemed to be hundreds of spiders which freak me out as I get a bad reaction if bitten. I'm sure the mom with the rather large egg sack would not have thought twice about defending her brood.
The reward for all the hard work . . . a swim in the pool. Of course Ravyn was in heaven, I think she would live in the pool if she could. She goes absolutely crazy when my husband dives in and then goes frantic searching for him while he's under the water. We're still trying to teach her some pool etiquette as she has a tendency to scratch and try climbing up on us but I fear that might be a losing battle.
. . . . as for my boy Joey, he prefers to sit in the shade as far from the water as possible.
How was your weekend?
