We try to do a breakfast once a month.
This month we decided to do something different and do it over a my sister's house instead of the cafe we usually go to.
I didn't bring my camera because I didn't want her to think that everything I do, I view as a photo op.
On Friday she asked me what my "menu request" was.
I said "Thick Expensive Bread with Nuts and Seeds and Blueberry Jam served with Strong Coffee."
I didn't really expect her to serve that but I figured if she was asking, I'd tell her what sounded good...
I wished I had brought my camera because DANG! that's what she served.
It was lovely, served on little yellow "bee" plates.
If I had my camera I could have also photographed her backyard, the flowers, the landscaping.
I could have zoomed in on what I thought was a dog in the wooded area.
I could have followed my niece down into the trees
and taken pictures of what turned out the be a small group of deer.
If I had my camera I could show photos of the awesome "tree dolls" my eldest niece is making to sell at the Fairy Festival that she's going to Oregon.
Sigh...yeah, no photos make for a boring post.
But brunch was a nice break from working on my bathroom.
I've been spending all my spare time redoing it....on a ZERO dollar budget.
I do mean ZERO. I'm only using what I already have.
I did take some "during" photos of that
but I'll save those for when I'm done and do a before and after post.
..................I do have a photo to show of Poppy though.
I took her into work the other day to get her groomed and her rabies vaccination updated.
I wasn't really thinking about how stressful it must have been for her.
She hasn't been to work since her previous owner dropped her off to give her to me.
She's always been quiet and timid, although she's come out of her shell here at my home.
I was carrying her around and showing off her haircut to everyone.
The vet techs were all around her and oohing and aahing over her when she suddenly
projectile vomited on two of the vet techs.
A lot of vomit for such a little dog.
We apologized and I took her back to my work area.
I made her a little bed and she laid down.
When we got home, she instantly ran around and went back to her usual routine of things.
She was fine.
I think she just wanted to be home.
