*** important detail of today i totally left out, the dog ran away! she has never done this. but because of that i became lax about keeping an eye on her. she usually goes out runs around and then comes back up and lies on the deck or barks to come in. yesterday i let her out about 2:00, taylor gets home from school around 2:10. i asked her to walk the dog (part of her daily chores) right away since it looked like rain any minute. then she says " where's bayley?" what?she is on the deck. "no she's not mom" frick! so taylor an a neighbor friend ran around the block. i hollered from the deck. little ones were in for naps so i couldn't leave the house. after about a half hour taylor took one more trip into the woods. our back yard butts up to a seasonal campground with a lake. well looks like bayley took herself for a swim, she was in the woods tearing around like a wild dog and she was wet. so, trauma avoided, she is now home, and now i need to watch her like a hawk OR tie her back on her lead. so a bit of unwanted drama and excitement in our afternoon.
ah and yes a color theme emerged again today. yesterday's bright blues and oranges replaced with the warm browns, grays and burgundies.
