sleep, sunshine, a dog park and a garden. they all help

corn and a bean plant 

Yesterday I decided to take a nap.  I decide that just about every day.  Then I don't get around to it for one reason or another.  Or for no reason.  Well, yesterday I did take a nap.  I forced myself to.  I slept for over an hour and when I woke up I felt really good.  Better than I have in a long time.  Hurray for sleep.  I should do more of it!

My sister gave me a sort of leash. seat belt for Buddy.  She has one for one of her dogs.  It works really well, when it works.  Somehow Buddy figured out how to unbuckle it.  I will put a picture of Buddy and his seat belt here.

For some reason I cannot explain, or figure out how to fix, my blog is a little bit haunted.  Some of Ann's obituary somehow is floating on and over the writing here.   Hi Ann!

Buddy buckled in

Buddy and I went to the dog park.  He loved it, and ran and ran with the other dogs.  I took a picture, but it was all dogs and dust and blur.  You couldn't make out which one was Buddy (except he is usually the short one).   I deleted that picture.

After the dog park, Buddy and I went to see how the garden is growing.  Well, it is growing well.  The weeds are growing especially well.  A couple of the tomato plants look like they are dried out, which I cannot understand.  We have had rain (I almost wrote snow!) at least every other day if not more.  That's why I have not been to the garden in a while.

One of the things I do not like about working in a garden, or doing much of anything in the outdoors, aside from the heat, is the bugs.   I cannot stand them.  And they love me.   They love my ears "bzz bzzbzz".  They love my arms and legs "chomp chomp" and they love my face "oh no I think I swallowed one"!

I don't like sweating a whole lot either.  I guess I am just a wimp!

I have always liked the idea of farming and gardening.  But my fantasy garden is without bugs and weeds and is not too hot.   Yeah, dream on.

Ok, so I took some pictures and here they are.  Ta da!

 Oh yeah, cannot forget to forecast for tomorrow.  I have never seen a weather map so colorful before!
