I have been sitting here, in my favorite seat in the living room, for nearly two hours now. During that time, I created the collage you see below, and began this post about six different times, deleting all of them.
I’ve also played with George who brought out nearly all of his toys from the toy box tonight, wanting to play fetch in the living room. So we played ‘find the toy’ with him. Basically, you tell him which toy to get (most of them are named) and he brings it. He’s really quite good at it.
Then we toss the found toy to him several times as he performs feats of jumping craziness on the couch we don’t use. Oh, I know we shouldn’t let him jump on the furniture, but this piece is on its way out anyway and it does make an excellent trampoline.
I’m practicing the collages lately, from a tutorial sent to me by a blogging friend and one I found on Pioneer Woman’s Photography tab. [link]
This is the only toy that isn’t named (what do you name a two-headed doggie circle toy?) I took this photo last September, when the toy was brand new. It’s a bit rattier now and is missing the rope but now it makes a great tugging toy.
My husband told me a joke today. I thought it was real and laughed out loud when I realized it was really a joke. (This is rare for him).
HIM: “I saw on the news today that a laboratory out in California was raising medical marijuana.”
ME: “Yeah.” (wondering where he’s going with this)
HIM: “Well, there was a huge flock of birds, terns they were, and they landed in the garden of the lab.”
HIM: “Yes. And then they started eating the plants and they ate all of them!”
ME: “Oh, my gosh, really? Are they ok?”
HIM: “Yeah. But there was no tern left un-stoned.”
I was blank. Then I smiled. Then I saw he had a newspaper in his hand and was reading from the funny pages. And then I laughed really loud. Mostly because he rarely tells a joke and it just made it all the more funny.
Yeah. Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
