We had a crazy storm here the other night. Heavy rains, strong winds...you know, typical weather for the Midwest.
It made me sad tho, to walk out after the storm and find this.
Look how sad this little guy looks.
I was able to get them all staked up before the next batch of rain came thru.
We will have to see how this big guy does. He was blown completely flat to the ground and his roots were actually pulled from the soil. Hes not looking so good. Sigh.
If he does manage to pull thru, this is what he will look like.
Isnt he a beautiful color? Hes called Chocolate. I know, right? Did I find the perfect fit for me or what? If only I could find one called M and M now...then Id be all set.
Look at the side of the house. Can you see it?
Here, come closer....nice, black dirt was blown all over the siding. Doesnt look so pretty, but it will be an easy thing to take care of.
But on to the happy. Today was school supply shopping day. SSSD. One of the kids favorite things to do. Cant you tell?
Heres the countdown. We take countdowns very seriously around here.
May I go, too?
Please, may I go?
Im sorry, Darbster. I KNOW there are other pups that get to go shopping at Target. Im just not brave enough to take you into Target yet. Someday soon,okay?
Heading into the store.
Spending his time wisely.
Ohhhh...A new Sharpie. Too bad that wasnt on K's list!
Lovely new binders.
All our loot.
Can you believe that all that stuff in the cart fit in these two bags? Yeah, well, my wallet cant believe it either.
