Day 83

This morning when I was heading from my car to grab a coffee before work, I saw these beautiful flowers growing outside the PCC (kind of like a Whole Foods/River Valley Market for you East Coasters.) All of these cute little bumble bees were buzzing around and one flew right through the frame as I was taking the picture. If you look really closely, you can see the hunk of pollen stuck to his back leg. You can’t really tell but the plant itself seemed to grow almost like a weed – I sent a picture to the gardner in my family, Jenny, to see if she knew what it was. I haven’t heard back yet, but I’m hoping it’s something easy to grow that I could plant on our deck!

Tonight, for the first time in a couple weeks, we took Winston to puppy play time and he had so much fun. Agnes, Earl and Winston ran in circles and generally bulldozed into one another. Winston would try to just follow along behind, or get the others into a game of chase by “tagging” them with his paws. He’d do this by leaping almost completely over Agnes or Earl and tapping them with his feet as he leapt. It was pretty impressive.

Afterwards, we spent the night hanging out on the couch and watching The Way Way Back. It was a fun feel-good movie and if you have a chance to watch it, you should. With how busy we’ve been the last couple of weeks, it was really nice to have a quiet night in. Although we have some chores we have to get through this weekend, I think we’ll just take our weekend pretty slow.

Here’s to sleeping in and lots of reading time!
