Positive conversations with old and new friends. I'd love for you to join me on my back porch.

Life has suddenly gotten away from me. I feel like I need a lasso to corral it and get back in control. I don't see that happening anytime soon.
One little thing going on is I'm dog sitting. Chloe, Heinz's sister, is staying with us for a week. When you go from one to two dogs, you don't double the chaos, you triple it. What one dog doesn't find to bark at the other does. And nobody wants to be left out of barking.
Last night my mother called, and the dogs began to bark. I left them in the house and went to the back deck to hear my mom. The neighbor was mowing his lawn, I was on the phone and still could hear the dogs. Whew.
They are so cute though. I wouldn't trade them for anything. Have a great day!
