The past few weeks have flown by and they were quite busy! This week has been extremely busy with deadlines and getting prepared for the State to come by and check out everything at work. It’s the accreditation time of year again. Today was a perfect day if I say so myself. Mom, her new caretaker, myself and Adventure Boy went to visit our good friends Mr. B and his amazing wife Mrs. R. AB adores both of them and always gets excited when we go see them. AB does not have a father nor a grandfather, so Mr. B takes the role of grandfather to AB. The past years Mr. B has taught AB some archery lessons out in the field and shows AB about survival skills as any former Marine would. Mrs. R is just the sweetest woman on the planet and she adores AB that I don’t mind that she spoils him. Even though they don’t have any children of their own, they love children and it shows by how they interact with them. We always love hanging out in the country with these lovely souls and here are some pictures to show our time there. The picture below is not their barn, it’s their neighbors.
This is “Sparky” who looks like he lost his spark, but believe me, he still has it. He’s just really acting bored in this picture. Just a few moments earlier I had been playing tug a war with a rope with him. Sparky is very well taken care of, gets loads of love and has all the food in the world to eat made by Mrs.R. Sparky was laying down and I snapped a picture of his expression. He’s an old dog, bless his heart.
“Good Boy”. Mr. B gently rubs Sparky’s head and I had to snap another picture. Truly a man’s bestfriend. I’m going to blow up these Sparky pictures, frame them and give them to Mr. B and his wife for Christmas.
Mr. B said my mom could take one of the kittens they were taking care of. This is the newest member of the family! Isn’t he cute? We thought he was a girl at first. Someone who loves animals immediately fell in love with the nameless or soon to be named cat. Guess who?
“Mom, can I name him LOKI?” The cat’s ears go back like horns! The kitten is very mischievous! The only dilemma we have is that we were going to name our future dog “Loki”. AB then said we had to have a “cat conference” with his grandmother, since it is her cat, to agree with a name. So, this kitten remains nameless. Maybe we can have two Loki names in the family.
Returning back home, my mom decided to show her new caretaker the bay area. I love sitting by the ocean and taking in all the sounds. It was so peaceful sitting there. Some guy was sitting alone off to the side.
I look down and AB gives me this expression. My silly, precious, love of my life son. He’s always being a comedian and keeps me laughing. He certainly takes my breath away! What a great ending to a perfect day!
**Don’t forget to look for our “Thor: The Dark World” movie review coming up. AB and I are excited to watch it and looking forward to reviewing it for all of you!**
