it’s hard to believe he’s been playing for over a year and this is second recital! he was nervous but he aced it. i’ll post video at some point but for now i’m behind on the 365 project so i’ve got to catch up on that!
so sad to have to take down the peach tree that was killed by the brutal winter before last.
you see that face? that’s odin’s fake smile because at this point he’s not exactly super happy to be helping me.
but lo – we did it – stump and all! and in relatively short order. while it’s a bummer to have to take her down, we’re planting one to replace her.
in retrospect i should have seen this day coming since he’s starting to wear young adult clothes, but you know, somethings still catch you buy surprise and i went shoe shopping with odin completely unprepared to learn that his rapid foot growth to size 7.5 bumped him from youth to adult?!!!!!! can not process his shoe box says MEN.
i think the teenage shoe salesperson was really amused by the look on my face.
having had malamutes for pets for over ten years has taught me many things one of which being that you might get one return in a game of fetch. after that they just look at you as if they’re thinking “what are you thinking silly human? if you want the ball stop throwing it. wouldn’t it be much more fun if you just scratched my belly!”
