I even came out on the deck and helped Miss Katie put on her outdoor work shoes. :-p
See how our deck doesn't have any railings? No one has fallen off yet but Miss Katie says it's something they have been worrying about since they bought The House On The Pond.
All Miss Katie wanted to work on today was a new garden. Really! She got out the tools and everything. Then I heard The Tramp say how much he would like to put up a railing and Miss Katie saying not until the silly benches were removed. The Tramp looked and they were only nailed on anyway. He gave each one a really good kick and they came loose enough to pry off! I'm sure glad I never tried leaning on one. Wow.
Then The Tramp made terrible noises with tools and cut the legs even so the benches can stand on the ground. I wonder why??
The Tramp said he was wondering a lot of things about our deck. Like why this post was so crooked.
Because it wasn't attached anymore, that's why. I got far away while he banged on it.
And made more loud noises with tools.
I don't like the big noises.
Maisy went and sat in the sun.
Far away over there.
Look how her fur shines in the sun. She's shiny and I'm fluffy. :-p
Ngaire wanted to help and stayed very close to the sweaty grunting people and noisy tools.
I stayed on the deck....away from the edge! And anyway, I like to sit near hot pink flowers. See my picture in the sidebar?
I like cameras too.
Except when I get distracted. :-p
So now The House On The Pond has a new garden.
It needs more dirt for us to dig in though, and mulch for us to scatter, and the deck still needs railings. Miss Katie and The Tramp said they were very tired from moving dirt, pulling up roots, making noise with tools and carrying stones, so it didn't happen today.
But it makes the deck a really nice place to sit......even with the mosquitoes Miss Katie said. Today she had to spray that smelly bug stuff all over her and she was still moaning about mosquito bites. I think she needs some nice thick fur like us. :-p
We had a nice dinner but the people were so tired they just had leftover chili. I got the bits of grated cheese Miss Katie dropped on the floor. Woot!
All of us canines were soooo tired after working so hard outside today. The Tramp and Miss Katie watched Tony Bennett's Duets 2 on PBS and the music was so nice and soothing. Not like the big bad noises that happen outside.
But I did offer to help with the sewing a few times.
Miss Katie said she was quite capable of making her own mess thank you very much.
The best part was laying in just the right place so I could swish my tail back and forth through the bits of paper and help spread them further. Wheeeee!
So this is what's causing the mess on the floor. That's four rows. I can count to four.
Oh oh. The Tramp is calling us to go out one more time. Happy dance! At bedtime we get a treat and our pills. I'm not sure I like the Omega 3 stuff but all of us love to crunch our Chondroitin and Glucosamine capsules. The powder gets all over the floor but we make sure to lick up every bit. Yum!
Good night now!
