Saturdays are Meant to be Busy!

Saturdays always seem to be busy around the house.
MORNING STUFF - By 12 noon, we had already walked the dogs twice, Tom got a haircut, went to Lowes, swept and mopped the entire first floor, loaded the truck with construction debris, went to the dump, and had a Dunkin' Donut breakfast sandwich and coffee for lunch. Then the afternoon started!
- We've hired a great, hardworking perfectionist named Brian who painted our living room (photo below of picture and lamps), stairway and upstairs hallway, painted the master bedroom (photo below) and our sitting room, painted and installed 6 new doors we bought. He's been doing that over the week, and today he finished painting and installing the doors. (Photo below are the spray painted doors in our front yard). We hired someone to do all the painting, because Rob is not allowed to paint. Tom has seen Rob's painting skills and we'll just say they're not too good. Perhaps that's intentional? :)



AFTERNOON STUFF -The afternoon was just as busy as the morning. Tom did edging work in the yard while Rob mowed the lawn. Then Tom went on a weeding and gardening frenzy (see below), while Rob took the dogs (Dolly and Franklin) inside and bathed them (see photos below of Dolly in a towel, and Franklin in the sink!), cleaned their ears, and brushed their teeth. After the bath, Dolly and Franklin just had to crash! Rob also wrote a press release about his book and updated this blog...before going onto laundry and the next project!



Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
