What We've Been Up To

It's been a while. So, to catch you up on what we've been up to lately, here's a little highlight reel.

We have been thoroughly enjoying the Olympics, and it is our nightly ritual to curl up with the dogs and fall asleep to it.  Because, really?  It goes until Midnight?  I can't do it.
Speaking of dogs, one of ours currently looks like he just got out of a doggy concentration camp.
And you would have thought I was dragging him into one, the way he fought me all the way to the door of the groomers.  He even dragged me off the sidewalk.  The receptionist had to come out and help me get him inside.
That dog is so stinking skinny underneath all that fur.
And while we are on the topic of dogs, I really like mine, and have been enjoying some beach trips with them.  We took them to Dog Patch the other day to watch the sunset.
 I wanted to relax and read a magazine while we were there, but the whole sitting on the beach thing lasted about 5 minutes.  Nick was in the water, and Brontie couldn't sit still for more than 10 seconds at a time.
 So, we decided to enjoy the beach from the back of Nick's Jeep instead.
 And I got to read my magazine.
Summer nights in the backyard have been so nice.
Our dogs really like these nights too, the little beggars.  But, really, who wouldn't beg for that?  And I can't help myself...look at those eyes.  She gets whatever she wants.  And as for Brontie, he actually looks like he is a starving beggar, so he gets whatever he wants to.
And, lest you think we are completely obsessed with our dogs, we did go to breakfast at Ramos House Cafe this morning without them.

I also worked all week on a new backyard project that I will share soon.
