Little boys

Returning to work and to a more normal workload these past two weeks has been exhausting. Last night I was in bed sound asleep by 10pm and didn't get up until 8am, so I had ten solid hours. Then this afternoon, after watching the first few cheesy episodes of that old 60's gothic soap opera Dark Shadows (feeling like I ought to be smoking Virginia Slims and sipping a Tom Collins the whole while), I took a two hour nap. It felt great.

Prince George was super happy to come lie at the foot of the bed and take a nap, too. I think he probably misses our daily summer afternoon naps together as much as I do. In fact, I just miss him, period, now that I'm back at school. I mean, look at this face. How could I not?


He sure has come a long way. Next week will be a full year since we lost Ginger, and he's finally settled into being the only dog and soaking up all the extra attention. He's better behaved and more mature now. A thoroughly good boy. 

I miss this rascal while at work, too. My most troublesome son. He'll be fourteen years old next month.


The one thing Marco likes about me going back to work is helping me get ready in the morning. Sitting on my shoulder and "helping" me put on makeup is one of his favorite things. Sometimes he preens my hair while I do it, which is kind of adorable. Another good boy (most of the time).

Here's my final picture to share with you today. Meike asked if I'd seen Little P. yet this year. Yes I have! How I'd missed that little boy! Even with only a two month break, it looks like he's grown some. I was so happy to finally see him again this week and give him a big hug.

    1. I WANT TO USE THIS OPPORTUNITY  TO SAY A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO Dr Ogberaese, My name is Leonard Shirin i am so happy to share this testimony on how Dr.Ogberaese  healed me from genital herpes. i was detected with genital herpes around 10th may 2019, and ever since that day i have been looking for a way to end this virus from my body, but the more i try, the more i was told there was no solution. Few months ago i saw a testimony of some people on how Dr Ogberaese   cure them from HERPES VIRUS, i also heard about it on media when a young lady also gave her testimony saying Dr Ogberaese cured her oral herpes. I was left with no other hope than to contact Dr Ogberaese and give him a try. I contacted him  and told him what i was going through. He said he could heal me, that he is going to send me a herbal medicine and He sent the medicine as he promised. I took this herbal medicine for 1 week and it was obvious that his medicine was for real, because the herpes started clearing from my body. Later at  the 2 week, i went for medical check up and i was surprised when my doctor told me he found no trace of the virus in me again. At first when he told me, i was so shock and still did not believed until he gave me my test result. to make my story short i am now free from herpes, after many months of sorrow and my sickness is gone, i thank God for leading me to this man, and i want to also lead you to him if you have any illness like HIV, HPV, hepatitis B, asthma, cancer, Diabetes, COLD SCORE,TOOTH ACHE  FIBROID and AUTISM.  You can email him on drogberaese54@gmail.com or whats-app  him on +2348073818653.  visit him on his website:  https://dr-ogberaese-herbal-home.jimdosite.com

  2. Prince George is a very handsome pooch, and Marco looks mighty! Hugs for Little P, makes going back worthwhile I suppose- though I would miss summer naps too. So is this it? You are back full time now for the next long time?

  7. Lovely boys, all three of them, and all three adding something special to your life!
    Two months is enough time to grow a bit when one is as young as little P. Thank you for sort of sharing him with us on here!
    While I was on my enforced 6 week break, I took afternoon naps as well. Now that I have already two full working weeks under my belt again, I really miss those naps; I do take breaks from the screen as I need them, but can not make them long enough for a proper nap.

  8. Heartwarming photos.

    I never watched an entire episode of Dark Shadows. It was huge at the time. But all I remember is Barnabas, which I think is the only character I knew.

  9. Very sweet photos, all. I remember watching Dark Shadows all the time. I think I only understood half of what was going on. I just thought the eerie dark feel of it was cool. And I think I remember something about Angelique's song. Gotto go Google that now. Have a good Sunday!

  11. Isn't it nice that George has come so far this year in his acceptance of the way things are now? Bless his sweet heart. And you know I have a special place in my heart for your most colorful little man. Throw in Little P. and let's not forget your beloved husband and you are a lucky woman! And they are all so lucky to have you in their lives.
    Naps are the best form of self-care!

  12. "Dark Shadows" -- wow! I haven't thought of THAT in a long time. Little P has indeed grown! And I know what you mean about missing the pets when you return to work. I'll be in the same boat next week. Dave says he thinks Olga actually prefers it when we leave because she can sleep the day away. :)

  15. What a happy smile on the pooch! It made me smile too.

  16. George always looks like he has a huge smile on his face. Marco always seems to look as if he hasn't yet made up his mind about what sort of day you're going to have. Little P? He looks joyous at spending time with his friend.

  17. its obvious some patients with Herpes Virus are being enslaved to the antiviral and other supplementary Orthodox medicine just to help suppress the virus and not a cure. I have been with the virus since 2015 until I was introduced by a blogger who also narrated her story online on how she was cured of HPV after using Dr ALUDA Herbal Medicine. This is a year and 2 weeks since I was delivered from Herpes VIRUS. All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to heal me. I have promised to keep telling good things about Dr ALUDA. Please feel free to share Your problems with him and don’t forget to tell him I did refer you to Him. Thanks. email him  Draludaharbalhome @gmail. com He deals with Alzheimer virus, Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Genital, warts,Multiple Fibroids, ALS, HBV, UTI, Virginal infection, Genital, Wart, HPV, Hepatitis A/B, Good luck, HSV,  Cold Sores, Diabetes 1 & 2, Pregnancy, Ex back.
