Doggie Slip and Slide

We have had a lot of rain this year.  Hurrah!!!!!  We need it after 6 years of drought.  Only problem is that we have no rain gutters.  And if we get too much rain without diverting it from the house, it gets wet underneath the house.  Easy, cheap quick fix — blue tarps along the edge of the house.  Longer term fix — install the rain gutters and possibly a French drain.  During the rain storms, we’ve gone with the cheap easy option.

Now these tarps are fun for the puppy when wet.  She considers them to be a doggie slip and slid.  Race along, halt suddenly, and slide along the sidewalk.  Might slide though a puddle or two, that only adds to the fun.  While we may care about a wet muddy puppy, she doesn’t.  Besides getting dried off with a towel is fun.

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
