The leaves from last fall have NOT disappeared, however. Apparently Mom has it on her 'to-do' list. Which means that those leaves might very well be there THIS fall. Heehee!
You might notice the green thing next to the leaves, erm, snow. That means.... On Saturday Mom finally finished raking the yard, 'prepping' it (with this nasty looking cultivator thingy), seeding it, and fertilizing it. Once Mom had done the 'hard' work Saturday afternoon, she decided to zip over to Home Depot to get the grass seed and fertilizer so she could call the yard 'done'. Well, 'done' as far as everything that needed to be finished before she could start watering. And while we still may get snow, the yard is "ready".
Also on Saturday, we had another doggie class. Mom was very busy on Saturday! Abby and I both went, and we split out time between Mom and Jessi (the turkey hotdog lady).
|Me, taking the dog class thing Very Seriously.|
|Me, hamming it up for the camera...|
The other dog in class was 'strange'.
Actually, she wasn't strange, just new to us - and a little excited!
But Jessi had good treats, and we can handle Just About Anything with the right treats!
|Abby, totally NOT paying attention to Jessi and hamming it for the camera, instead.|
|Abby, being the opportunistic suck-up that she is, and paying attention to Jessi in exchange for Vienna sausages.|
|Hi! Did ya miss me?!?|
Class was actually quite fun (as usual), and we came home worn out (which then allowed Mom to play in the yard).
Today we did our usual walkie thingy, and then Mom and Dad took off to "hit golf balls." I have no idea what these poor golf balls did to Mom and Dad, but apparently the golf balls fought back viciously, and Mom and Dad came home tired, but happy that they hit these poor defenseless balls, and have plans to do it again in the near future.
When they got home, Abby and I got in some bitey-face time while Mom was singing something about how her 'long hair didn't cover up her red neck' (apparently she didn't use enough sunscreen while whacking the poor golf balls and got a little pink).
Good times! And you'll notice from our lawn that were in much better shape than we were last year - but with all our snow gone, why it was high time for Mom to get the seed and fertilizer and stuff down!
