The Hardest Working Man in Cleveland...

...maybe in Ohio! Maybe beyond. Can you tell I'm feeling a bit guilty? I took some "me" time this weekend, I really felt I needed it. Oldtimer calls it "soul trips." So, while he set his sights on completed yardwork, and weed-free gardens, I did things like talk on the phone, take a trip to an antique shop, and specialty grocery shopping.

So here he is - 8:30 pm, and still working away...


And really, I did do some chores, like water plants, sweep cobwebs out of both porches, laundry, and dust & rearrange some decor elements, I didn't do nearly the things Oldtimer did. I did, however, get this sweet little blue pitcher...

and this nice soft blue footed dish...

I did fix a really nice dinner last night - and brought home candy. Life requires flowers, too, don't you think?

PS - For those who asked, our cocker spaniel, Buddy, had his surgery last Monday and came through just fine. We found out on Thursday that the tumor was benign. He is as wriggly and happy as ever, and the fur has already started to grow back on his bottom!

Looks like Oldtimer earned his dinner that night! LOL!
Love the dish and pitcher you found.

I didn't know Buddy had a tumor, but so glad it turned out to be benign. We went thru that with Issy and I was so worried until we got the report back.

Hope you are having a great weekend!
