Sun goes down, you come in

Published May 8, 2015 by lynn k scott

With my daughter finally connecting with the neighborhood girls, she is constantly outside.  It can make getting assignments done timely a bit more challenging, but friends and exercise are part of education too.  As long as everything gets done, I can’t complain about my 9-year old not wanting to sit mindlessly in front of the television or watching kid videos on youtube.

She has the same rule I had as a kid, when the sun goes down, you come in.  She is playing in our “circle”.  It’s nice that several parents are situated around the circle, so someone is always watching the kids.

It reminds me of, “it takes a village to raise a child.”  All the parents have discussed making corrections if the kids squabble, are riding scooters in the street and the like.

I walk outside to call the lil miss home before the last of the light in the evening sky give way to the light of the moon.  She was close to the house.  I have somehow agreed to them having a sleepover here next weekend.  Oh that should be “interesting”. No matter, the lil miss is very happy with being part of the “neighborhood kids”.

Am I Fat; dog thinks so

Published April 8, 2015 by lynn k scott

It’s the only logical explanation I can come up with. We’ve finally gotten to the point in our puppy training, where Smokey (the grey pup in the pic) will go to the door and wait to go out. Sometimes he’ll utter a sound or two so I know he’s there.

Once he’s out, if he barks after doing his business, eating rocks, digging to China, etc., I immediately go get him as to not to disturb the neighbors. Both my dogs are inside dogs and are tethered when they go out. The chaos that ensues when they aren’t just isn’t worth it.

I have put Smokey out, sat down to work, heard his bark, gotten up, gone outside, bent down to unchain him, walked him in, and sat back down. I have repeated this process over a dozen times in the last couple hours.

The only explanation for this is, my dog thinks I’m fat. LOL

Side note: The brown and black dog, Reeses, is a fence jumper. He thinks I’m fat too because boy when he thinks I need a workout, he’ll break his leash and lead me around the neighborhood until I run out of breath.
