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!!

At least Honey feels safe with you! As soon as fireworks or thunder start, Pippin leaps off our bed and heads for her crate. I have no idea why she thinks it's safer in there than with mommy, but... oh well!

When the fireworks really started, she headed straight for the closet, to hide behind my clothes and in the dark. I felt so bad for them, next year I'm medicating them!

Poor Pippin, it's not easy being small and scared!

I can sympathize with your puppy. I HATE fireworks, for a lot of reasons. There will probably not be a lot of sleep tonight, as neighbors in our area seem to enjoy setting off both fireworks and the things that just explode. My sister's dog just sleeps through it all, but barks at everything else, so who knows.

Haven't seen Dory yet myself - my daughter keeps explaining to people how much she loves the character because both them share memory processing issues. I'd actually like to see it since the aquarium is based on our local Monterey Bay Aquarium!

I didn't get very much sleep on the 4th, as my neighbors also thought it was a good idea to make things go boom until the wee hours of the morning. Ugh.

When you can see it, you will definitely like Finding Dory. I thought it was adorable, and the aquarium were really amazing!
