The weekend, briefly

I was productive this weekend, determined to cram work, play or sleep into every possible moment. We tried to set a personal record and go see another movie (twice in two weeks after our one year accidental hiatus) but apparently everyone else had the same idea and it was sold out. We made up for it with some early afternoon two for one margaritas.

No one has stepped forward to claim the little pup (possibly because he has revealed himself to have more energy than a 5 year old on a sugar high and a voracious appetite for gnawing on books and furniture indiscriminately) so for now he remains under Circe's wing. She has yet to house train him, but she has taught him how to sit when asking for treats and how to get as dirty as possible while rummaging in the bushes (critical terrier skills).


  1. Ha!! Circe is teaching the pup all the most important parts! Looks like a lovely weekend. 2-for-1 margaritas are much better than a movie!

  2. Looks like a fabulous weekend! I love that Circe is so kind and generous :)

  3. What a lovely mess! And look at the little puppy butts - too cute!

  4. Whats that thing in the center of your barely messy table? It looks beautiful!

  5. that last picture is too cute...i love how they've quickly become such good buddies! crossing my fingers that nobody steps forward to claim him!

  6. Your pictures are so beautiful! Simple but the lighting makes them look straight out of a magazine. I wish I knew how to take amazing photos like that.... I have been following your blog for quite a while now and recently decided to start my own. Thanks for sharing your creativity, it has been an inspiration.

  7. love this post! so bright and engaging :)

    that last photo with the little fellow digging is a treasure!

  8. What a lovely weekend. I love your mess!

  9. critical terrier skills, indeed. does the puppy jump as well? I believe that's another critical skill.

  10. Sounds like a great, productive weekend. I love the last photo and I'm glad your new found {furry} friend hasn't been claimed. Must be fate!

  11. @ STEENIE - Rosebud belts for the shop, posed on a cake stand so that I could get a decent photo in the failing light. These rainy days make photo taking in my apartment not so easy.

    @ katie bee - He is a crazy jumper! Much better than Circe, who we think is just lazy. She insists that we lift her up as often as possible or at least provide low chairs, so she doesn't have to jump to any sort of height.

  12. A great weekend! I'm glad Circe's watching out for the little pup :)
    Your teacup is lovely; it looks like it's meant for tea leaf readings?

  13. i'm so, so glad to hear that the little bug is still with you! love to see your teacup again, as well. that was such a good buy.
