Dog Days of Summer

Hi all! I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. I feel like I have been so busy this summer, but I like to be busy. For some reason I decided to take the weekend off from Maryland, and I'm home all by myself with Stella and LOVING it!! It will soon come to an end, and Fall will be here before you know it. This is just a little update on my crazy life for the moment.
I received my AARP in the mail after my birthday in July. That made me feel really special!
I feel like I have been neglecting my house, soooo....

I decided to give this house some much needed attention!

I am here all alone, so I could take my good 0l' time. Watch t.v., clean a room. Read, clean a room. Take a break and eat, clean a room. Walk Stella, clean a room. You get the picture. What a nice nice weekend, I love my family, but gosh dang' it, it was a nice break!! I have one more week, and I'm back to work in the real world!

Remember when I blogged about the Bonanno Sandals earlier in the season, and Ina informed me that I had won? (Thank-you Ina!) Well I finally received them last week. It felt like it took forever! It was worth the wait, because I love them!! I picked the gold ones, and they turned out beautiful.

I hope this pose doesn't offend anybody, but this is Stella's favorite position whenever anyone walks into the room when she is napping. I am tired, and she is waiting to snuggle, so I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I know I am.



  1. Oh you lucky AARP member to have won those Bonnanos!!! I am so glad you got them and I bet they look sweet on you. Sounds like you are enjoying having the house and your schedule (and Stella) all to yourself. Enjoy the peace and quiet. Ron had prostate surgery this week and he is coming along but the procedure was a bit more involved shall I say than we anticipated. He has a catheter the diameter of a straw running through his body and out, shall we say, of a private part. This device will be removed Monday morning and none too soon..... xoxo

  2. Ronda enjoy your alone time! Hard to believe summer is almost over. Love the sandals so cute. Have a great Sunday.

  3. Stella, what a cutie! enjoy the alone, with stella time! i've missed you during your busy summer....

  4. Hey RaRa - I like the new colors and design of your blog! Not sure about the AARP yet though! Yikes!

  5. Congrats on the win and for being a proud member of AARP (Ithink?)
    I love starting off the school year organized and ready, I'm sure you'll be back down on your dock next weekend!

  6. Congrats on the golden winnings! I can't remember- how did you win them again?
    I enjoy a little home alone time to catch up. I so love the pose of Stella. I feel like that somedays just letting it all hang out. LOL... She is a cutie.

  7. She is adorable and what a GREAT picture....

  8. Oh my gosh, that pose!!!!!!!!!! How can anyone be offended. Haha. So cute. Well enjoy the rest of your summer!!!!!!!!!!!! I always love coming here and reading you while listening to some Jack!!!!
