Another Weekend Gone

I did accomplish all my chores this weekend, but its back to work tomorrow.  On Sundays I have an early start at work, since I open the place.  That means the workday ends early too.

So, today I started out with a workout at the Y.  I didn’t get to the circuit training workout that I usually do on Saturday mornings because I had to have Dakota at the vet’s office at 9am to have the stitches out.  So, I went to the Y at 7am, had my workout, returned home and cleaned up a bit, and then Dakota and I headed to the vet.  Her stitches were removed and the scar has healed up beautifully.  Then I took Dakota home and headed back to the Y to pick up my workout and eating partner Connie, so we could go for breakfast. 

After breakfast, the dogs and I went for a nice long walk and when we got home,  I got my article done – its a jigsaw puzzle of Jewel – at http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art59064.asp  –  this is the picture I used.

Jewel posed for a bunch of photos today, and here is another one that I liked.

After getting the article up, I went out to work on the yard.  Since the eaves were cleaned yesterday, I thought I might as well clean up the yard today.  Well, I didn’t really rake the leaves though – I went over them with the lawnmower and cut them all up (along with the grass).  If we happen to get another nice weekend before it snows, I might rake some of them up – but otherwise I’ll rake in the spring like I normally do.  If I removed all the leaves, the ladybugs would have to find another yard to winter in.
I also took a couple of pictures of some flowers that are still flowering in my yard.
