The joys of puppies

While refinishing our deck today,
I marveled at the antics of our puppy
Realizing nothing is really off limits or beyond exploring

Since our deck needs quite an overhaul,
I have been pulling nails,
adding screws and sanding.

At various points those nails and screws were carried off to be examined and chewed,
Along with a flip flop, bits of sandpaper and the end of the broom.
I'm thinking variety is the spice of life.

Occasionally a cold nose was thrust in my face,
Attempts were made to steal my ear protectors from my head
And the hammer was never really interesting until it was being used.
The power sander was a noisy foreign object that needed to be attacked.

And now after a day of saving the world,
we curl up in a ball,
then throw our legs in the air
and sleep with abandon.

For we are never quite sure what tomorrows adventure might be.

A year and some

This was a very long break,
Wasn't sure I was coming back,
Not sure I am ready to stay.

So much in my everyday,
Not always able to keep up,
Sometimes missing the things that mattered most to my heart.

Still contemplative
But, I say hello!
