I think this Independence Day was one of the best days that I've ever had. We got to the lakefront about 4 hours before the fireworks were due to go off and got good seats. It wasn't hot and it was nice just sitting around and goofing off with Sweety and the boys. We were all silly and had a fun time.
Oh! Guess what I got today? A super comfy love seat and chair and a bookcase! I have been wanting a bookcase forever and a day. The coffee table is on back order but it should be here soon.
Pay no attention to the tiny picture hanging on the wall. I'm on a hunt to find a some sort of huge bit of canvas art to go there. If anyone knows of a good website for that sort of thing, let me know. I've spent two hours online looking at different sites.
And we also got a new kitchen table. It is especially good for tall folks. Sweety can sit in the chairs and not have his knees all scrunched up under his chin. My feet just graze the floor when I'm in them.
Sweety picked out and bought the furniture without me a couple of weeks ago and I was afraid that I wouldn't like it but I'm very pleased. (And you know that me being pleased is most important.)
We were so pumped up about the new furniture that we decided to get some stuff for the bathroom.
That wall had previously been blank. Tiny Dog really appreciates the decorations. She said it makes the bathroom seem more like a home than a shitter. I wish you could smell the bathroom - there are some smelly beads in the candleholders and they smell great. A very strong blend of vanilla and jasmine. Hopefully, it will mask the canine smell after a couple of days.
Yesterday was our 6 year anniversary. Time has really flown by. The first couple of years that I was here, I was so freaked out that that time is really a blur. The last four years are remembered pretty well. When I got home last night, Sweety had cooked a yummy dinner for me and then he showed off one of his many talents.
There was no Half Nekkid Thursday photo this week because I got ate the hell up by some sort of tiny flies at LittleBrother's(10) baseball game last Tuesday. There must be a couple dozen bites on me. You know what an ant bite looks like? How it gets a little blister in the middle? These bites are like that. On my neck, arms, elbows, fingers, legs and feet. I am one itchy motherfucker. I've been dreaming about scratching myself. I want to take a wire brush and just scrub all the bitten spots and then douse them with bleach. I have a feeling it would solve the itch problem but would lead to some nasty scarring.
I'm gonna go scratch now.
