Simpatico: IDK Why....


Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

IDK Why....

I have no clue why I plan parties. All I do is completely stress out and plan out extra work so when the day of the party arrives I am exhausted. (But the project is done and the house is one step closer to looking ah-maz-ing!)

I am still working on my yard every chance I get. I H A T E yard work. I do not like bugs, am terrified of outdoory animals, get a poison ivy rash at the drop of a hat, and just don't like to sweat unless being served mojitos by a pool. Thus, the yard, deck and front living space has sorta, kinda been really neglected. Not enough to make the city come and condemn it, but enough that our neighbors are probably secretly taking up a collection to have a yard service come in a gut the landscaping for me.

The two people who DO love the yard work are the ones with 4 legs. They adore the new smells I unearth. And where there are smells there is a dachshund rolling in them. Its rather funny to watch them. They start by getting all nose up in the smell, tails wagging like "OMD I have found gold!!" then they do this sideways stretch into whatever aroma has hit their fancy and rub it on their neck. After their neck is nicely covered then they roll their backs all into it.

But at the end of their time outside, they just wanna do one thing... yup, use mom as a pillow and rub that smell all over me.

*Oh, another reason I don't like yard word... see those nails? they don't do mulch!*
