National Daughters Day and Dogsitting

Well, evidently I missed National Daughters Day on Wednesday! What an oversight! I am totally blessed with my baby girl–now in her 20’s. We are the best of friends and we enjoy just being together. We also like reading books together and talking about them (see our youtube channel Joyous Jabbers for more).

We encourage and stretch each other. We have similar hobbies and enjoy cooking too. I’m sooo blessed with her. Love you bunches!

And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my daughter-in-love Lauren. She married into our family nearly seven years ago and we’ve adopted her as our own. :)

It’s not a very good picture of us but at least it is one of us together. ;) Lauren is thoughtful and (mostly) keeps Brian out of high water by remembering family special occasions. :) I enjoy talking with her about any subject she desires and try to always be there for her when she needs me. :) She even tried painting with Tiffany and me. I’m blessed that Brian found someone that cares so much. OH! and who is committed to homeschooling Liam. :) And she’s doing a great job of it already. Love you Sweetie!

In other happenings this week, we’ve kept my parents Golden Doodle while they are on vacation with my baby sister and her family.

He’s such a loving dog. He’ll come up and put his head on you (just imagine my knee under his chin because he looks just like that :D ) and will tap you with his paw to get you to pet him. He’ll even hold your hand. I do not believe my parents give him as much attention as he is trying to get out of us. :D But he’s sweet.

Then we’ve been going over to my sister’s house and giving her two dogs, one Golden Doodle and one German Shepherd, some human time. We feed and water them and give them some time to run around and play. And we let them run around outside for a bit too. Tiff even brushes them.

Usually when we watch them, they are not very interested in eating or drinking much. But not this time. They definitely have their appetites! Tiff even switched out the water bowl for a bigger one because she had to refill it several times while we were there.

On day two, they destroyed this ball and yet they are still playing with it. :D

They are good dogs and I think they’ve gotten used to us coming and spending some time with them while their family is away. :)

Tiffany and I read Anne Perry’s book, The Cater Street Hangman this week. We buddy read it, meaning that she read a chapter or two and then I read a couple of chapters and back and forth until we finished it. We vlogged some of our chats as we read it and will post it soon (probably next week). ;) It was fun to read together and see who was right about who done it. :)

Well, I’m going to run for now. I hope you have a great weekend.

Until next time, God bless,
