This past week, I took some time off work to finish projects around the house. Only two small tasks actually got done, but at least I had time to relax during my holistay. (I don’t care that Merriam-Webster has formally adopted “staycation,” John Hodgman’s suggestion on the Daily Show is a far superior term.)

The dining room now has sheers. You can’t tell in the photo, but the fabric is a loosely woven grid, appropriate for the square room of square things.

And we finally planted a couple of houseplants in the vintage ceramic pots acquired on our last trip to Abilene.

On Wednesday, I drove to Waco for dinner with my mom, who was there for the Texas Association of Convention and Visitors’ Bureaus conference. We saw a lot of bridges and a few historic homes while I was there.

Today was Laika’s last day at puppy class. She was more distracted than usual by dogs outside the classroom door and only won two of five contests. Kerbey was better at returning when called, leaving distracting toys and goodies, and musical sit. Laika more consistently stayed, and we’re teaching her to read. If you don’t believe me, ask for a demonstration next time you’re over!
