Breakfast, Books and A Dog Wash



Our weekend was a typical one. We had the usual chores (laundry and cleaning) and a few extras like bathing the dogs. This is NOT their favorite activity and we pretty much get as wet as they do in the process. They feel great afterwards, though, and run around barking and rolling on the rugs. It
was pandemonium for a little while there.

Other than chores, we had a couple of nice breakfasts, particularly on Father's Day. Breakfast means oatmeal, toast, fruit or yogurt during the week, but on the weekend it's something special. Although we went out this weekend, often we cook at home. We make spectacular omelettes, fried potatoes, the works. Sometimes its homemade
breakfast burritos.

I haven't been sewing much, but I have been reading. Summer weather has me feeling
lazy, and I love to relax under a ceiling fan with a nice breeze blowing in the window. One of my favorite authors is Jodi Picoult. I just finished these two this weekend. I always like a good story where the author makes you care about the characters. The topics are contemporary and the plot moves right along. One of her methods is to write from each character's point of view, and you really get a chance to get inside their heads and see what's going on. Anyway, if you are looking for a good summer read or two, check it out.

I am also reading Vanishing Acts, although I've put it down for a while. My dog hates a bath or a shower, but let me get the garden hose out and he's all over it! Go figure.

How coincidental--I just bought Vanishing Acts. It was a spontaneous purchase. I was just wandering around our neighborhood bookstore this afternoon and picked it up. I read My Sisters Keeper a couple months ago.

One of the advantages of a small dog - easier bath time! Read! Who has time to read? I will add these to my list.

Did the dog bath thing yesterday...after taking the shears to the black cocker spaniel who was like a furry black oven.
Although not beautiful (my skills in grooming are haphazard), she is much cleaner and cooler without that heavy coat.

I've read both of those and enjoyed them - but those covers are horrible! They come with much nicer covers here in New Zealand

I listened to My Sister's Keeper while sewing. (Best of all possible worlds!) A very interesting book, but the ending was such a disappointment, as though the author couldn't decide how to resolve the issues she had raised. Still, I'd recommend it to anyone.
