Who says Mondays have to be bad?

Our little guy is finally coming into his own

This may just fall into the category of a “perfect” day.

• Not only did Pete actually tell us he had to go outside today (minor miracle), he also went out without Juliette (another biggie). After ten months, I think he’s finally beginning to find his comfort zone.
• When leaving work today, I stepped outside into some of the most intensely gorgeous weather you can imagine. Lovely blue skies dotted with those puffy, photogenic cumulus clouds and accompanied by a light breeze.
• Both dogs were just splendid on their afternoon walk as we cruised the sidewalks under the rustling leaves.
• My client just called to tell me that the concepts we came up with passed muster with the higher ups. This after we were given very little time to spend on them and after I crammed the past few days to dredge up some creative-yet-meaningful copy. The changes were minimal. The accolades were many. How often does that happen, advertising folks?
• I was reminded, as I am every day really, that my husband is a very funny man. (Yes, bad jokes are the mark of a funny guy!)
• I’m about to set to work on what I’m hoping will be a delicious Eggplant Tomato Gratin for tonight’s book club soiree. Weather permitting, we’ll be dining on the deck on a fab July evening.

Mondays really aren’t so bad.

  1. I envy you your dogs, my girlfriend and me thought about getting one too, but it didn’t work out. It seems like we’re to young and working too much, and now that my girlfriend is gonna leave town to study somewhere else the wish seems out of reach. The only ray of light is that my new neighbour has one of those furry “Bernese Mountain Dogs” which I will be allowed to take out from time to time. 🙂

  2. Lewe: Sometimes dogs can be more work than you’d like. And they can curtail spontaneity to a point. Although everything has its pluses and minuses, right? Those Bernese Mountain Dogs are beautiful and sweet. You should have fun walking him.

  3. We’ve had thought about our plan to get a dog for a long time, it was not just a fling and we were well aware what would happen to us if we’d get one. In the end that is one of the reasons why we didn’t get one, but still I am a little sad about it because a dog is one of the best companions you can get. Sure he demands a lot of time but he gives back a lot too.
