Sunshine At Last 9 July 08

My dear departed Daddy's birthday today.

Well, today the sun shone all day. Amazing, it is still in the sky after all. Jim went to the UK for 2 days. This morning I pottered inside. Buster has been clean ALL DAY. Miracle. Fingers crossed it's not a fluke.

Spent much of the afternoon weeding the top area of our parking space. It's all got really weedy because you have to have 2 dry days to spray weedkiller. It's not happened, so I've got fed up with it and have done bits by hand.

I'm eating chocolate. Thanks Jim.

Yesterday I made another ATC (Artist Trading Card) and I'm quite pleased with it. I did one the day before too. This morning my 'swap' came from Rachel. It's just fabulous, as I knew it would be. My first too. Must think about where to put them.

I gave one to Sam, my daughter in law, so should get one back from her soon.

Took Buster for a walk on his lead after his dinner. He was very good, but very scared of the dogs round the corner on the way to the lake. We ran off past them and he kept looking behind to see whether they'd gone!! We met 2 people and both times he wanted to go with them. No loyalty beagles!

I was getting midge bitten this evening, so lit a small camp fire and it certainly did the trick. Fabulous. Buster though it was great fun and I took a cushion out for him to sit on while I weeded!

I have some more photos of Buster and BlackJack. Will post them here.

Going to have a go at another ATC now. Back soon.

Gina, no matter what pretense they put on for you and Jim, Blackjack and Buster do really like each other. *BG*

You can tell by those photos of them lying together on the couch. *VBG*

By the way, I love your couch covering with the Latin writing on it. *big smile*

Oh, and how do Buster and Sandy get along?

I was just wondering about that.

Hope that you and yours are doing all right, that things are going okay, and that today goes all right for you all.

God bless and take care. :).
