My housesitter just texted me the most adorable Auggie photo.
Poor Auggie has had a rough week with a non-specific skin allergy. He was so miserable yesterday that I begged the vet to see him early, rather than on Monday as planned.
He is now on pills to block the itching, and the nearly-raw spots on his skin are looking better today.
Poor little guy . . . .
Garden portrait, Saturday, July 29, 2017.
Auggie and I went to the Grand Basin in Forest Park on Saturday evening, to attempt to learn some things about light and reflection and the Canon camera.
Auggie marred the evening by deciding to tussle with a wee little doggie. Augustus Rex is a massive alpha when other canines are involved. And once he gets sight of another dog, he is beyond anything but corporal control. Alas.

Well, I’ve had a full week of ‘vacation.’
And yes, I’ve rested from my usual labours. But the daily tasks, and the catch-up tasks, continue.
dog washed and trimmed
garden in good shape, with elephant ears split and more annuals in various pots
yummy Asian chicken salad made and devoured
at-home office desk purged of piles
monologues memorized and rehearsed for an audition
travel home from NYC
dry cleaning delivered, collected, and stored
lessons taught and coachings given
music composed, and new-to-me songs read and digested
cooking shows watched and enjoyed (and let the weekly menu planning commence)
photos taken and new sites scouted
Independence Day duly celebrated with a movie and then some grilled meat
laundry accomplished; bedsheets changed; bathroom scoured
fresh Gerber daisies placed in one of two favorite vases, and adorning the living room
new cast albums heard and enjoyed (mostly)
cake made and most eaten now
dog walked more times than I can remember
The list could go on and on, and doesn’t seem like much other than daily life, but living a daily life away from the office for a couple of weeks is a delight!
