Saturday morning brought clean sheets and fresh coffee. But somewhere between the clean sheets and the coffee, things got grumpy. Nothing was wrong, really - sometimes you're just crabby. We had so much scheduled, I felt overwhelmed. Dog training, sheep herding lessons, buy groceries, clean the house, laundry, Flavio helped a friend move, etc. It wasn't bad stuff, just felt never-ending. All I really wanted to do was laze about, have a leisurely brunch, and then read my book in the sun. I took a deep breath and we pressed forward with our busy day. I barked at Flavio a few more times as we ran from one commitment to the next, but by nightfall we were happily tangled on the couch, eating chocolate pudding and watching movies. All was well again.

For obvious reasons, Saturday is not pictured. Sunday made up for Saturday. We did everything our hearts desired. Slept in, strolled the farmers' market, frolicked at dog beach, Flavio barbecued, I baked, Guiri lounged about, we ate good food, and we snuggled in to a mini-marathon of our fave show, House of Cards. It was a good day.

I'm on spring break from Navy college, but still teaching at SDSU until Thursday. A lighter schedule this week and come Friday I'll officially be on break. Can't wait! I need it.

Some scenes from Sunday..

  1. How is the "House of Cards?" Have always wanted to watch it but haven't yet.

  2. I'm sorry I haven't introduced myself before. My name is Pancho and I'm a regular reader of your blog. Keep up the awesomeness!

  3. House of Cards is dark and really good. I think you'd like it, Pancho Bagchi! :)
