Making the Best of Idle Time

I know this will sound terrible but I would rather watch pets than children except when it comes to my little pirate, Warren.  Recently, I got the opportunity to watch him for two weeks while his normal sitter was taking a summer break with her own family.

He is now 6 months old so he is growing and learning so quickly. It was a pleasure to get to witness it in person. He is such a good little boy. My son is lucky to have it so easy, hehehe😊

After those two weeks I took off with a friend to New Orleans for a few days. Just taking in the sights. We enjoyed a carriage tour of the French Quarters, then a walking tour of the Garden District.  While there I enjoyed talking to the many tourists. One night I met three ladies on a two week baseball tour around the states.  Loved that, women traveling with complete strangers enjoying their favorite pastime sport. 

Now I am back and currently watching three pups for a few days. We have two pet sits this month. Pet sitting has turned out to be something we both enjoy and we are meeting some awesome families. I'm really looking forward to doing this abroad.

Just a check in

Just checking in with you all..  we have been doing normal society things.. like work socials.. where you go do something with your coworkers for relationship building. A night of bowling and dinner.. and I  learned I still suck at bowling.  

Im still hanging out with the neighborhood animals.. 

Im also dog/house sitting for a new friend I met at the dog park. We are fellow hookers (meaning we crochet or knit) 😜

As you can see her and her husband have a lovely home.. Steve and I are enjoying it greatly these two weeks.  

We love how it isnt huge yet it is comfy and efficient 

Doesnt it look like we are suffering

Yeah we really hate it here πŸ˜‚

And I don't think their dogs like us much either 

Aww pics are out of order. This is Janie Mother Boyd's kitty

And here are some of my veggies Im growing

Yep just hell for me 😜😎

Oh and Schooner hates it as well 

Well thats all that is going on here in our world. 

Until next time my friends.. be good to yourself and Others

Streamlining travel plans

Well to start this off, Schooner had a false pregnancy.  I knew I never witness any hanky panky but she sure thought she was so I thought there was a chance they snuck behind my back like my daughter did years ago.. hahah. So No Puppies.. πŸ˜•

Lets see what else?... not a whole lot.  Ive been hanging out on the back porch feeding the neighbor horses and playing with the MIL's cat, Janie.. unfortunately thw other cat passed away. Not sure what made her sick but we just couldnt get her better.

I have also been pet/house sitting for friends and with summer here, more friends are needing me, which is great.. love getting out and about.

We have been buying things to take back to the boat and Im going to slip this little thing in for mending clothes.. isnt it cute 

Little Schooner and her favorite toy the fisbee..  here is a little secrete .. she may be having little schooners soon. Steve is making her pull her way and add $ to the cruising account as well. 

Easter time with the inlaws
