That's the Zack Brown Band with "Toes".

Life is good today!

My weekend was quiet.  The man brought me home to sanctuary for a few days.  
Good company.  Good food.   Dr. Who,  Mythbusters and Firefly.
I got to see the plans he's drawn up for the outdoor kitchen and its looking great.
I drew up my own plans for the yards.
We are both looking forward to fishing soon.
Life is full of plans these days. 

We had a vist from one of his friends and her basset hound... a real treat for me.  We had  5  bassets over the years.  I miss that quirky personality that each has.
I planted a strawberry pot with various flowers.  Millie, the basset walked up, chomped a flower and immediately spit it out.  Gave me a good laugh.  With bassets, if its a good taste, its gone... but if its a bad taste ... tooie! 

Now I am back at Dumb Potter's Hell killing time until  I go back  to work tomorrow.   Still a bit sore, oh well.
I will have a short week... 3 days, then be back on the road home to sanctuary Thur. as soon as my work day ends.  I can't wait.  I'll have 4 days in a row off... and Randy will bring me back up for my remaining things.  Yay! Yay! Yay!

After that... I will have a 4 day work week, followed by 2 days in sanctuary and then my final work week.  It will be 5 full days in a row and will mean that I face rush hour traffic to go home.  But baby, I'll be going home for good and that's a wonderful thing.
You'll hear no complaint from me today.
Life is good!

So what are you all going to do with Memorial Day weekend... if you have one?


  1. You are very nearly a full time resident of Sanctuary!
    I don't have any special plans for the upcoming long weekend, but I am very much looking forward to having three days off in a row :-)

  2. laura b.-- I am whenever I can be!

    Whatever you end up doing, I hope its grand. Three days off is a wonderful thing. How can that go wrong?

  3. So, you know why I keep coming back here?

    Well, let me tell you. The exotic combination of BBQs, fishing and Randy's burgers just lures me in...

    Mmm. Btw, just BBQ'd some Mackeral. You guys want some?

  4. Mo-- YUM! Yes please! I have never had BBQ Mackeral. Sounds wonderful.

    Funny you should mention it... we did have BBQ jalepino and cheese burgers,BBQ swordfish and a maple flavored BBQ rib steak. Randy is a true master at the grill.

    Mostly he made me rest up, but I did make a batch of cookies, two cherry cheese cakes (plus 6 mini plain cheese cakes for his lunches),and some stuffed yellow peppers with roasted garlic and marinara sauce for him to eat while I'm away. Tit for tat as they say.

    You can see the swordfish tomorrow on my post. I took photos.

  5. Mo-- By the way, that glass of brew on your photo ID is just the right topper for any BBQ. ;-)

  6. I love barbecued fish and really need to fire up my grill. Not sure yet wheat my Memorial Day plans are except for NOT working Monday!

  7. My daughter graduates this weekend. I will be running around like a chicken with my head cut off until Monday...When I will make myself finally rest.

  8. Churlita-- This weekend... WOW! Congratulations to Coadster!

    As I recall that is a bit of an emotional roller coaster as well as physically exhausting. Take extra good care of yourself, but enjoy!
