Tough Morning At the Office

It is 82 degrees in Boston this lovely Monday. 82 degrees!

O&I had one small errand to run for Mommy; taking her black pants to the tailor for a new lining. On the way there, we encountered a street construction project underway. After leaving the pants with the tailor (cheapest hems on Charles Street, and her stitches are lovely!), we stopped to watch the excavator/dumptruck duo dig up a portion of the street.

We stayed for an hour and a half! O plunked himself down on the sidewalk with his Goldfish crackers and his Nalgene sippy bottle and watched this excavator work. He didn't talk. He didn't fidget. It was quite simply mindblowing.

After a while, Nana happened to pass us on the sidewalk. She joined us for a few minutes, did some errands, and then returned. At that point we waved a vigorous "bye-bye" to the crew and headed off to explore the Common and the Public Garden under the guise of walking Nana home.

Back at home, we dragged out O's Tonka cement mixer and some chalk and played on the street for a few minutes. While out there we were lucky enough to spend some quality time with Ace and Bailey, the neighborhood Cavalier King Charles spaniels.

He's all tuckered out now, and I'm looking forward to a nice long nap for both of us!

I love Cavs! Drake's parents have them, but they can't get Higgins to breed. :( One of my students just offered me a Shih-Tzu puppy. Drake says that's "not much of a dog.... what do you even feed it"
