Last weekend we headed to The Ranch. It had been a while since all of us were there together.
Neal worked on baseboards, and other trim pieces, while the dogs and I chilled out on the sofa and admired his work. I love our ceiling!
I perused the newspapers and the sales ads. Look at this...olives for $.99 and tuna for $.69 - what deals!
Because George is such a scaredy cat when it comes to loud noises, I had to stop reading periodically and comfort him when Neal used the nail gun.
Yes, I have my sunglasses on inside....it helps to disguise my makeup-less face!
Nadia and Captain required no comforting. They took their napping seriously and didn't let something like a silly nail gun or air compressor disturb them!
Later in the day, we took advantage of the beautiful weather and headed out for a walk.
The pups loved being able to explore The Ranch and our road, totally free of leashes and restrictions. We saw no cars, people or other critters - unless you count the birds! It was so relaxing and peaceful out on our little piece of paradise. It was also a bittersweet reminder that we must eventually return to the chaos of city life....for now.
Until we are able to turn our dreams into reality, we'll take whatever snipets of ranch time we can get...remembering to stop and enjoy the sights and smells of adventure along the way.
