What more could you ask for?
We are experiencing a very cloudy and wet weekend. Rufus and I are troopers and always suck it up and venture outdoors, no matter how soggy we get. But now that the pup is well exercised? The boyfriend and I have plans to grab dinner and see “Her”, a movie I have been dying to see since I saw the first preview months and months ago. Can’t wait!
There’s been quite a lot of radio silence over here lately. While I’m still keeping up with my favorite dog blogs, I haven’t done much blogging over here myself. I’m hoping that will change in the new year, but I don’t want to make any promises.
While Rufus is still the center of my world, I’ve been taking a little time to focus on myself. It sounds silly, but being a crazy dog lady is a great distraction. Putting so much time and effort into him meant that I didn’t have to think about my own stuff. But then? Something clicked and I realized I really wanted to start figuring out all that “stuff”. It’s been a really interested and exhausting couple of months.
The boyfriend and I are juggling quite a lot right now: a possible move, job changes for both of us, and grad school for myself. It’s all up in the air right now but things are starting to happen, so we’re just trying to take it day-by-day. On top of that, I’ve rediscovered old passions and have started to do something about it! But enough of the vague information…I just felt compelled to post something because I really do enjoy this little blog and all of the friends I’ve made.
Here’s to new beginnings!
Rufus and I went to our favorite park for a nice long walk today. We hadn’t been in several weeks and it was so cool to see it transform into the new season. The water was iced over, the trees were bare and the skies were clear. There was a nip in the air, but there’s something so magical about how quiet the world gets when the weather cools down. I just love this time of year.
We’ve been so very lucky in the Pacific Northwest. Actually, that may just be my personal opinion as fall is my favorite season. Crisp mornings followed by sunny afternoons? Give me all of that, all the time.
However, we have had a few moments of winter….dreary, freezing, hibernation-inducing winter. But! I’m going to try my best to stay upbeat and active during the next few months, even if my body is telling me to “sleep, sleep, sleep.” How do you and your dog stay upbeat and active during the colder, sun-less months? I’m gonna need all the help I can get.
Sage is not my dog, but she has a huge chunk of my heart. Kind, gentle, funny. I love seeing this face walk through the door while I’m at work. Also, she vaguely reminds me of one of my favorite blogger pups…hmm…who could that be??
