Big weekend here.. my mom was part of the South Coast Open Studio Tour and we had to learn a lot of things.... don't pull on the tent flaps, don't bite the bubble wrap, don't knock brownies out of guests hands or lick their toes so they'll drop their food...
My Auntie Nan made the BEST brownies (and lots of them - somehow mom 'forgot' that she was bringing a second batch for Sunday and didn't end up putting them out, so guess what... heh heh heh.. we got to keep them!)
It was too hot and I was too pooped to spend the whole afternoon out with mom. Although she said I was a big help (and a reason people pulled their cars over and came in), she had Conor put my 'chill collar' on and put me in my crate with a cold can of soda to snuggle up to and a small bowl of iced water (who says I'm spoiled?).
We got a little creative as to where to hang the art, so some of it ended up nailed to the front of the house on the porch, and some got hung on the garden fence (which dad reeaaallly hates, and he said maybe we should leave the art there, so you can't see the fence as well!). I helped mom sell some paintings of the dog show, and got walked and cuddled by Molly and Conor a lot, so all in all it was a worthwhile weekend! THEN at the end they treated me to grilled swordfish on the porch, with a fabulous sunset (duh - no photos of THAT?)... so I'm pooped but happy!
