Good Morning everyone! How was your weekend?  Mine was good, although it was kind of hot. The humidity is starting!

Ok, please sign in with your name, location, your dogs's name and breed....and what you did over the weekend.

Humidity is starting here too....with a lot of unsettled weather.

Laura here in VA with 7YO lab/mix, Cleo.  Nothing special at all...I wanted to do some more gardening but the weathere wasn't cooperating.  On and off showers so I didn't want to start something I couldn't finish.  Hopefully this coming weekend will be a little better...there's "lots" to do....

Donna here with Dante, 4 y/o Greyhound in Arizona. I didn't do much this weekend. It's warming up here so it's the season for holing up inside with the A/C. Poor Dante misses his walk to the mailbox but it's too hot now and him being black makes it even worse!

Donna - how long  is your driveway? Mine is 1/4 mile (just a guess).  It's pretty long.  Recently we had it graveled and Taz is now loving it. It used to be she had to dodge big rocks while we walk.

Terre from Arkansas with Jack and Taz, Toy Fox Terriers. We had a busy weekend, mostly working in the yard. And it was sooooo humid. Ugh. Why does it have to start so early?? LOL

DH did his weed-eating and I mostly planted flowers, weeded (which I thoroughly hate). Saturday night we attended a picnic at my church - good bbq. Sunday was pentecost so I attended dh's church with him. Afterwards we ate out and then he left to catch a plane to Dallas. He returned last night.

How much yard do you have, Laura? I have 5 acres and it's gets so overwhelming. We do have a gardener though that helps us - he does all the mowing and other big jobs. DH does the weed-eating and I handle all the flower beds. Oh, how I hate weeding!!! lol

Gaye here in Dallas/Fort Worth with the pugs -- Anya, Jabaar and Roo Ben, ranging in age from approximately nine to approximately 11.  All are rescues, so I'm not sure.

I'm on my third day, gated in my kitchen with the dogs, while I have new flooring installed.  The floor is gorgeous, but the experience of having it done is now on my last nerve!

Hi Terre - I have a very short driveway. In the Phoenix area, most home communities have a central spot for the mailboxes so that spot is about 1/2 mile from my house. So it's a decent walk to take Dante down there to pick up my mail but not when it's hot! I just stop by there on my way home to get mail now. No walking.

I saw the pictures of your flooring. Very beautiful and I'm so glad it's done so life can get back to normal for you!
