As I write this, I am one cast-off row from finishing my sakiori. That alone is reason for rejoicing. But this weekend was just what I needed.
I got to my mom’s place about noon on Saturday with a pair of lovely Golden Retrieves in my back seat. We played ball and went swimming in the river. Then, while they took a nap in the cabin, I took myself for a bike ride on some very hilly roads.
That evening, friends arrived and we made barbequed chicken, wild rice, a simple salad, and drank lots of wine. Later in the evening we got a few glimpses of Mars through thin clouds and munched s’mores in the dark. I got melted marshmallow all over my face. It was wonderful.
I slept with Morgan, on of the Goldens, right next to me in bed. She kept having hunting dreams and kicking me with her rear paws. It was adorable.
Okay, I think I’m ready for another week now.
