Thursday November 19, 2009

Even though the weather has been beautiful here, I did not have the urge to do outdoor activities this week...I know, check for fever.

I woke up this morning determined to go-a-explorin' as to not waste any good weather. As determined as I was I never did muster up a trek.

We were all having such a good time just hanging out at the house. Summer and I decided to spend some time outside. Although I don't mind staying home every once in a while, staying indoors for too long can be torture for me.

We all ended up staying outside a couple of hours. Summer was totally immersed in some activity at the flower bed while Toby and I pulled weeds in the yard. I bitch about the weeds in the yard, but in all honesty I find it very relaxing to pull weeds.

Eventually mine and Toby's back began to give out and Summer was getting hungry. We decided to go to the Good Luck Grill and use Toby's gift certificate he won for the pumpkin decorating contest on Halloween.

After we got our stomach's full of good cookin' we planned to go to Home Depot to get the supplies we would need to build the rabbit cage for Summer's 4-H project.

After we drove up into the driveway we decided that we would rather stay home and save the chore for next week. Nothing is worth venturing out into Austin traffic at peak traffic's bad enough without it being rush hour.

The rest of the evening Toby spent on the couch watching T.V. while Summer and I played outside. I ended up having to chat with Crazy K my neighbor. The woman with all her craziness is sometimes a source of amusement for long as she is outside and not inside my house where I can retreat from her if necessary.

A nice relaxing day I must say. :-)

  1. I could relate to needing to have the crazy neighbor outside and not inside where you couldn't retreat. Having someone we really don't want in our home is an uncomfortable feeling, isn't it? No place to go.
