The Hounds Enjoy The Sunshine

2019 May 13

Every morning lately Stella is not certain she wants the morning walk. She has to think about it, sniff a little, thinks some more and look around. Today was a morning where she decided she would head out. Until she hit the field, she still wasn't sure. The grass yard was really wet and she does not like getting her paws wet.


It's official ... another morning walk in the books.


After lunch she couldn't resist to take a nap in the sunshine. Her nose was pressed into that stepping stone.


Heidi prefers grass if she is going to sleep.


She went outside three or four different times in the afternoon. She did explore the field again alone but spent most of her time in the yard.


She is a much happier hound in warm weather. Like me, she is not a winter person.


I took a little time for some baked salmon and peas with Kerrygold nonsalted butter. The next big project ... I am painting not just a couple of room like I had planned but all the rooms plus all the ceilings. Luckily I love to paint houses, inside and out. A bottle of Ibuprofen will be nearby right before I call it a day.

All is good in 'the tropics' of Southern Indiana.


  1. You will need the ibro with all that painting. :). I have to break it up and rest a few days after each room. Have fun and keep enjoying your wonderful retired life.

    Beautiful photos of the girls and all the shades of green your house is surrounded by.

  3. Once I get started it's non-stop until it's finished. It's the getting started that is the hardest part. Thanks and 'will do'.

  4. Thanks. All the greens are sure different than the look from 30-45 days ago isn't it?

  5. I have been told that I am a very good painter, but that is one of those jobs I do not like AT ALL!! LOL

    Love the "official" photo when Stella finishes her walk and of course all the photos of Heidi! :)

  6. I'm finding out that my neck doesn't like painting ceilings, and it's not like they are tall ceilings either.
