And after that, PB and I stopped at this house on the way back to the house that has a "dachshund puppies for sale" sign in front of it. I begged PB not to go because I really didn't have any faith in my ability to come home without another puppy if I saw them. I am very proud of myself though - we left sans puppy. They were super cute and all but to be honest, they seemed pretty wormy to me (come on, doesn't everyone know you have to de-worm puppies or their little bellies get all blown up?) And also we just weren't sure they were full blooded dachshunds. Not that that matters SO much, but I think they were maybe sort of passing them off as such just to increase sales. Though I have to say - come Christmas break time, I do think I want another. People say they're like potato chips...you can't have just one.
So the rest of the afternoon has been spent studying (must. pass. this. Praxis. on. Saturday.) I know, I'm tired of hearing about me studying too. But at least this is my view.
Peg says hi.
I've also finally really got into my summer gardening. I can't believe it took this long, I don't know what's wrong with me! Normally I'm at the nursery snapping up every plant they have and I'm in a wifebeater and my John Deere gardening gloves filling up every single one of the 4 million pots I own. I finally got around to putting out geraniums, replacing my pansies with begonias, and filling up some pots with something I'm newly obsessed with - portulaca.
It doesn't require much water, it blooms in those gorgeous colors all day long and then closes up at night - and best of all, it's a perennial! Love.
And finally, I had to end on this note. I took this picture in the Mr. C's parking lot when PB and I stopped to get a chicken salad sandwich (for me) and a Super C (a double cheeseburger) for PB. Nothing like Jesus and the Virgin Mary in a wooded scene. And also deer.
