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.

Thirsty Moses

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?

    Ha-ha! I love the 2 statues at the library, they almost look just like Moses and Alma-lol:)That is so cool! How in the world did you get them to still still for that and how did you get Alma to get on top of that round thing? That is amazing!

      I’ve always said: the purpose of a solid sit-stay is for the photo ops!

      As for the concrete ball, she just hopped up there. She’s pretty agile.

  2. Love it! I’d like to choose all of the above. 🙂 Great photos, all of them. I wonder what people thought when they walked past the Library – did they all do a double take?

      It was a pretty quite weekend afternoon, so not too many spectators. But we definitely get some sideways glances setting up these shots!

    Beautiful pups! I love this breed, so loving and gentle.

    Wonderful pictures. The one of Alma and the schnauzer is fabulous. Also the one of Moses drinking the water. And of course the one of the library. 🙂

    Oh wow, is that the new central library? I heard they were building a new one. Which is great because that beast downtown where I spent a great deal of my time needed a serious makeover.

    It looks like you’ve been out enjoying the season with your dogs. I guess that’s a good enough excuse. 😉

    • thatjenk says:

      I don’t think the new library is finished yet – I think it’s going in the East Village. This was just one of the old beltline locations.

  6. Fantastic photos! Love the one at the Memorial Library steps especially 🙂

    Loving the photos!

  8. Love the pic of Alma and the new friend… but really relate to the excuse list. You should make it one of those tag-another-blogger games.
