Excuses

I was going to write a blog post, but instead I…

… had homework to do.

… had to take Alma to dog class.

… decided to watch Hemingway and Gellhorn.

… had to clean the house, since the cleaner took a week off. (#firstworldproblems #whitewhine)

… had to brush the dogs (related to the foregoing excuse).

… took a nap (note: intentional).

… fell asleep (note: unintentional).

… actually participated in social events with other human beings.

… decided to read some blog posts instead of write one.

… had to take the dogs and the new camera out and play “hometown tourist”.  See for yourself:

Moses and an artsy bench

Moses again.

Alma and a new friend

Alma and… you guessed it

At the library

Having a seat

Seriously? We’re still doing this?

Besides, with all the seriously messed up headlines in the national news this week, who doesn’t need some light photo entertainment as a distraction?

 

You’re welcome, Internet

I’m going to brush past the fact that I’ve been busy and away from Blogland for nearly a month and happily announce that I think I now have just what the internet has been missing all of these years.

Hold on, you must be thinking.  Someone else already made Is Ryan Gosling Cuter Than a Puppy?

And you’re right. So what could it be, then?

More pictures of my dogs, of course!

And not just more pictures, but (ideally) better pictures!

You see, for the past several months, I’ve been stockpiling Airmiles until I reached my goal of 5,000.  And a couple of weeks ago, I did! Hello, new DSLR camera.

If there ever was a time to pity Moses, it would be now, as he is forced to pose for endless photos.

So now I just have to learn how to really use the camera, and Alma and Moses will be putting up with me every step of the way.

The cats aren’t off the hook, either.

You’re welcome, Internet.

Clearly thrilled about this new development.

Now I just need to figure out what my next Airmiles goal is….
