Hard at Work…Hard at Play
I wish I could say that I was in the kitchen canning my little heart out but I can’t. Matt and I decided to repaint the main floor of our home and then, while we were at it…why not refinish the hardwood floors!?! They were terribly scratched from the endless amounts of carry on we encourage our pups to perform and it was time to refinish them before another year passed. Needless to say, we’ve been too busy to CAN. Such a shame when there are Honey Crisp apples to pickle and cranberries to pick at the nearby marsh in Bala. It is hard to believe that we live only minutes away from the cranberry capital of the world. Now, the really shame would be if I didn’t get some of their tart fresh goodness into a few jars.
But, it hasn’t been all work and NO PLAY…as we are now the very proud parents of a new baby boy. We picked him up yesterday and are enjoying his puppy play, breath, love, and then the calm that comes once he has completely worn himself out. At first, our two older dogs were not sure what to make of him but now they seem eager to show him the ropes, bringing him toys to play with and tolerating his biting games. His chubby tummy and loving nature makes him completely impossible to resist. In fact, it is making it difficult to concentrate on getting the floors finished as I would much rather snuggle him on the couch. He is the best little guy and very very loverish. We are so grateful he is ours.
He looks eager to get into the kitchen and help us get some food in jars. What do you think?
