Helloooooooooo blog world!
I have been a busy bee now that summer is on it's way and I have honestly been way to occupied to be blogging! I'm trying to sneak in this update today!
I know I still owe you a vacation update, and a DIY project that is in my basement completed AND I have 3 amazing recipes to link up too! BOOOOOO ME!
Friday was such a gorgeous day out, that the hubs and I got to go to the beach.
I realized that I needed to make a last minute run to Target for 2 new beach chairs and a cooler. Oh and a packy run to pick up some delicious sweet tea vodka!
Friday night I made a plan, a real one this time (I'm notorious for changing my mind a 100x, I'm the most indecisive and sporadic person you will ever know).
I decided to plant a garden before it was too late in the seaon.
We live near a sand pit/pond so our sand resources were limitless!
I went to Home Depot with my mom and picked out all of my veggies!
7 tomato plants
green/red/orange/yellow/jalapeno/red cherry peppers
Sunday I had loam delivered and planted the sucker!
With my mom's and my brother in law's help and tips this garden should grow like a weed! They both have amazing green thumbs and always have successful gardens. I however have a black thumb, but I will try everything once!
In between spreading sand and planting veggies, I also tackled some landscaping projects with my sisters. I swear she could work for HGTV with her skills! About 80% of my beds are planted and edged, I just need a mulch delivery (hint hint).
This next paragraph is the most traumatic part of my weekend.
I was in and out of the house all weekend long, constantly running out to get things that I needed for the garden. Both of our dogs were outside as usual. My little dog Puppa hates when I leave and is always hanging around the car. He's so short that I pay careful attention when I'm leaving not to run him over. He also usually backs up and moves when I start moving or Josh calls him up on the deck.
My little dog's age has finally hit me.
I know that he is deaf, or at least can now only hear a high pitched whistle. And his eyes are clouded over causing poor visibility.
I however, did not know that he may becoming senile as well.
As I was pulling around the driveway to head to Lowe's with my mom, I felt a thump...proceeded by a noise that a seal makes when they are clapping there flippers (fins? idk) You get my drift.
I immediately slammed on the break and got out of the car. There was my little Puppa, walking with a limp and shaking his head.
I was so upset that I yelled at him (I'm going to be a horrible mother.)
By the time he reached the deck he was walking fine and his head stopped shaking.
He did have a black football patch of grease under his eye and a little on his forehead.
I must have hit him on the side of my tire.
I FELT AWFUL
I can't even describe how I felt. He's going to be 14 this year and all I keep thinking is "I almost killed my dog!". I'm always on Josh to watch him when he's outside because he is a wanderer and there I go getting all Fast and Furious on him!
Long story short, he is ok. THANK GOD!
Not on my watch.
Ya'll have a fabulous Monday at work. I'm off to go bake a red velvet poke cake! BOOM.
