Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!
I'm so happy to have Maggie and Mitch home!
I couldn't wait to give Maggie a kiss and tell her how much I missed her!
And the same goes for Mitchy! Kisses alongside that cute black nose, MitchyBoy!
I sure did miss the both of them!
And I couldn't wait to hear all about their trip! I did keep up with their blog while they were gone so I knew about all of the ice cream they had and all of the walkies down to the beach in the morning and all of the walkies through town twice a day!
But I wanted to hear more, you know, the good stuff!
So we gathered around and had a nice long chat!
The family didn't visit the cemetery this year like they always do and they didn't take photos on the beach at Brant Point lighthouse and I wanted to know why not.
It seems that Maggie had a much harder time this year getting around than she's ever had before. She got tired a lot more easily than in past years and mom and dad had to make sure that she got longer breaks so she could rest up and regroup for the next adventure. Dad suggested leaving Maggie at the house one afternoon and mom freaked! No way was mom going to upset her little girl by not including her! It would have broken her heart to be left home alone and this would have broken mom's heart! They just kept everything to a slower pace!
And then there was the incident when the dishwasher repair man showed up and Mitch charged the door to tell him that he was in the house and don't mess with him and Maggie couldn't get her feet underneath her! Mom had to lift Maggie to a standing position to help her out.
No, they didn't blog about that part but they did share it with me! I wish my sissy wouldn't get older! I want her to stay young forever!
I also heard about a ooopsie incident where a certain brand new never-been-washed-yet comforter got snagged by a certain little boy's long toenails and a replacement had to be found quickly!
And now I have a confession to make! I didn't keep up my end of the bargain and weed the vege garden every day like I was supposed to! I kinda had too much fun chatting with LOTS of friends and having LOTS of tea pawties and well, the garden is very overgrown and not looking too tidy! I have no idea where to begin! The weeds are too overwhelming so this garden will be looking pretty awful until frost when we can clean it up and put it to bed for the winter!
It seems that nasty tomato fungus blight has finally hit our garden too and the only tomatoes that seem to be doing okay so far are the heirloom Pineapples and the Dimes! How sad! We only had fresh tomato sauce once this year! And we planted so much basil! I guess we'll be making pesto!
I"m so glad the family is home and everything has returned to normal!
See you all next Wednesday!
