Gloomy Days

If you didn't know any better, you would think this is Seattle.  It's been cold, rainy & gloomy around here these last few days.

As much as I love cold, gloomy & rainy days (what can I say, I'm true to my roots!), I'm looking forward to warmer days ahead!!

Little Nugget

Last week was long and exhausting.  I had something going every night and was ready to get some much needed rest over this weekend.  Sadly, I had to say goodbye to our friends Mandy & Shane who moved back to Arkansas, 9 hours away.  We had gone to their wedding last fall and have really enjoyed getting to know them better.  Mandy worked as a Legal Assistant in a law firm only a couple blocks from myself so we would get together for lunch fairly often and catch up.  They are the cutest, sweetest & most genuine couple ever. That's something about Nashville life, that I'm not sure I'll ever get used to - folks coming and going at a moment's notice. 
I will miss my country bumpkins more than they know. 

Thankfully, the week ended on a great note because I was able to be little nugget Kai's first official babysitter!  What a privilege!  This little man is only 7 weeks old and weighs in at 9 pounds of pure deliciousness.  I'm not sure if it curbed my craving in any way for a munchkin of my own or just made it worse!  It definitely took me back to days of snuggling my little Munch Addie back 18 years ago - gah! I'm so old!!!   
Just in case I got in over my head, I brought in reinforcements by having my MIL Sherry come over.  I mean do you see those cute little lips?! They kill me.  Something that was just too adorable was that every time Kai got hungry and would start to cry, Seven could hear him from the backyard and would start to howl.  And I know it was Seven, cause I recognize his howl.  It was so funny.  It was much like this video and I was laughing so hard to hear him in the back howling away with little Kai. 

Unfortunately the rest of the weekend was spent on the couch battling some of the worst allergies I've ever had. I used almost an entire box of kleenex, took 3 steaming, hot showers and slept an insane amount of hours.

Thankfully, I'm doing much better today and and am looking forward to a great week!

Larry & Seven

Our neighbor friend Larry has developed a special bond with our black lab Seven.  I truly believe that Seven has really helped to bring healing to Larry in the recent loss of his dad.  This last weekend, Larry came over to hang out with me while Jason was working.  As I lounged in the back yard in a lawn chair, Larry got out Jason's wheelbarrow & played with the pups.  It brought back memories of when I would take Wicket and put him in our empty swimming pool.

Banks And Her Lovin!

So there's this thing that Banks does that I'm always telling my friend Angela about, where after Jason takes his evening shower Banks will come running and rub her entire body all over the back of his head.  It's as though she's getting her own bath from the moisture left on his hair.  That and the fact that we use a mint shampoo and I think it kinda turns her on, like a sort of catnip!  haa!! 

The other night Jason got through with his shower and we were both reading our study books, when she came up behind him and started doing her thing.  I grabbed my phone and was able to catch her in the act so I could show Angela exactly what I had been talking about.

Now for your viewing pleasure:

Disclosure: Jason isn't a "cat person", but he tolerates Banks.  Whatever. He loves her :-)
