Hooray for Friday! I hope it was a productive one for all of you and you can enjoy your weekend. We have been in a bit of high heat week again. Lots of bunnies laying around the yard with their buddas hanging out. I love this photo because as you can see she is just outside the direct sun.
Today I had about an hour of gardening. I swear I haven't worked in my garden for weeks. It is a miracle anything is still alive. Check out Nim's garden this year. It has some large mystery thing growing which I am hoping is a sunflower (you would assume I would know, but it was some start that I was given and I forgot what it was). Anyway, his garden is so full that Nim can't walk around in there anymore.
I got the lemon cucumber plants in Nim's garden under control today as well as the tomatoes in my other bed. I actually ate my first self-grown tomato today. It was so good. Every summer when I get garden tomatoes it is then really hard for me to eat store ones for quite awhile afterwards.
I also attempted some dog training. Since Nim and I have decided to branch out into competition obedience I have to teach him to:
a. fetch, and more specifically
b. hold a dumbbell while sitting, jumping, returning to me, etc.
Yes. He looks like I am abusing him. He is so perplexed by the sitting with the dumbbell in his mouth process. However the taking the dumbbell and running off to drop somewhere else - he has that mastered! I can't wait until we try jumps.
Enjoy your evening! It is 6:45pm and I am about to settle in for dinner and maybe find a movie or something else to watch. Emile is all ready. :)
