We finally fixed that hole in the backyard fence.
And now that he has discovered the backyard, he can't get enough of it. It's like he is saying:
"This has been here the WHOLE TIME? How come I never knew about this?"
He barks his head off at bunnies, squirrels, birds, chipmunks and neighbors with weed wackers. When he can't get outside, he has realized that he can simply hop up on the dining room window sill, and gaze out at the yard.
I have been very sick with a respiratory infection for the past couple of weeks, and my steadfast little Baxter never left my side. Even though he knew about the backyard, when I was in bed resting, he would come up and lay at my feet for hours and hours.
He is very glad I'm up and around now. Even better for him, I am spending time in the backyard conducting a glorious and budget minded patio makeover.
I've been curb shopping, and spray painting, and waving around fabric swatches. It's very exciting. I even have the boys helping me. They LOVE patio makeovers. (Not.)
I promise a full photo spread when its all done, which will be sooner rather than later, because my new motto is: Done is Better Than Perfect.
Baxter is helping with the makeover, too.
He's having so much fun, he could stay out there all day.
Is it time to go in already?
