Saturday

Can you believe we are all just getting up - I've been running around with so much to do - have to leave at 2pm today for an all day service for my nephew.

We went to the 21st Annual Marietta Greek Festival yesterday and spent from about 2 to 9 there. We weren't used to all that outdoor air. It was wonderful out there, but I guess it made us tired!

So I need one of these today:







I will visit and answer my emails - probably tomorrow! Love y'all.

"Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, but only saps today of its strength."

– A. J. Cronin

So no worries about getting things done today - I'll just go do them.

Love,
Chatty

I've been trying to get our dog, Dodger, to watch that useful dog tricks video hoping he might learn something. So far he is having none of it, but I am going to keep trying.

I am already extremely fatigued from watching this little jack russel! Get some rest and forget the computer for awhile, hope you have a great weekend!

Ann said...

a day of fun in the great outdoors always makes me sleep like a baby. Enjoy your weekend. I think I'm going to have a talk with Duke about learning some of those tricks. He's definitely not pulling his weight around here.

Howdy Sandie,
Oh!! How cute is the dog on the video!! It is amazing how animals can help all sort of people with disabilities, the lonely ones, the unloved, the homeless, the elderly, the children and so on.
I hope you have a wonderful day with your dear family and loved ones, Sandie. I visit you this day.
God bless you, sweetheart!!
Much Friendship Love,
Poet Starry.
