Work Weekend

I had the kind of weekend that I love. The kind where you have little planned but have a lot to do. Cowboy makes me breakfast every day except for weekends. I got to make him a great breakfast on Saturday and then it was off to the yard. My task was to move the rocks from the front of the house to the back patio. He got out our lawn mower and trailor. He thinks I crazy because I go about .5 mph and act like I'm driving 50 mph. I give him my best Miss America wave and he give me a "you're crazy" sign.

My friend and I took the dogs for a walk and as we were coming home, Cowboy had the mower loaded up and was going over to his sons. He told me this morning that his son called and was a little grumpy. After dumping fertalizer on his lawn and leaving for a weeks vacation, he came home to a full lawn 14" tall. So Cowboy loaded up the mower and went to his rescue. He didn't tell his son he would do that until he was on his way. He then spent the afternoon helping him. I surprised Cowboy by push mowing our back yard. It's very steep and big. That's the last time I'll do that. Cowboy was surprised and thought I really lost my mind.

Today, Cowboy and I went to see my mom. We weeded her flowerbed and Cowboy trimmed the yard. Mom was thrilled. He is so awesome for doing what I want to do for my family.

On a side note, we drove the car to mom's. It's awesome. On the way home, we pulled over and put the top down. Note to self: take along hairbands. My hair was all over the place. Sadie was a good girl today. In the house all day and no evidence of her sleeping on any bed, couch, etc. I'm praying she's finally gotten over sleeping on the furniture and just hasn't gotten crafty at covering her tracks.

Happy Mom's day to one of the best!

Glad you had a good weekend and so glad it finally cleared up so you could drive your new car.

You mowed after our 3 mile walk?? As I was driving home Sophie asked if I was trying to kill her. Once we were home she literally did not move all night. I think I took her out twice and even then she didn't want to walk far.

Happy Belated Mothers Day!

Ha haaaa wind-blown hair is chic. Remember that!

I will mow grass sometimes but it aggravates my allergies so. That's my story and i'm stickin' to it!

After seeing your picture, I have a feeling that I've met you before. I can't place you anywhere in my professional life, although I've puzzled over this since you put this post up. Maybe I'll remember it eventually. Someday when I'm visiting in KC we'll have to get together and figure it out!
