It's so lovely having a three day weekend.  I've been reading a lot, watching TV, and spending time with family.  My battle with the weeds in the backyard has reached an epic new phase, where I'm seriously considering salting the earth to get rid of them.  I never realized before how many damned weeds there are!

The puppies have been the joy and bane of my existance, as usual.  They tore the screen door, so until I can get it fixed, they have their own doggy door.  Oh, well.  I'm usually running the AC anyway.

Poor Honey isn't handling the fireworks very well.  She's the puppy.  Last year she was only a little over two weeks old on the 4th. This year she spends most of the night huddled next to me, panting and shivering.  I feel bad that I can't really do much for her other than pet her and talk softly to her.  Once the fireworks die down, she's fine.

Mrs. Hudson just goes in her kennel and sleeps.  She's very zen about it all.  Same with Colonel.  He's an old man, now, and just curls up on the bed and sleeps.

Saw Finding Dory with my mom and her best friend yesterday.   Very cute movie.  I was rather astonished to find out neither had seen FInding Nemo.  I'm going to have to educate them!

Not really much else going on.   I'll try to post some pictures of the back yard later, to show the changes I've made since I bought the house and now.  If I can just get rid of those damn weeds!!
