Pickles and Mom will shop for Thanksgiving dinner this weekend. Nana, Papa, Mema, and Papa are all coming to visit! They didn’t come last year but this year everyone is vaccinated and ready to gather!

Fall garden

Pickles and Mom are already harvesting swiss chard from the fall garden they planted in September! Their cabbage and broccoli are still growing nicely. So far the weather has been favorable for growing their fall vegetables:)

Nana and Papa’s visit

Nana and Papa are coming to visit this weekend and Pickles can’t wait! Rufus will be excited to see them as well. They always bring him the best treats! Patience the fairy reminds Pickles to be patient and get her school work done so she has lots of time with her grandparents.

A weekend in the country

Pickles and Rufus are visiting Victoria at her farm this weekend. They get to spend two nights! The farm has dogs, cats, horses, miniature horses, goats, chickens, and a potbelly pig! Rufus is very curious but only plays with the dogs and an occasional barn cat. What a beautiful weekend to be in the country!

Hair cuts

Pickles and Mom are both getting a haircut this afternoon while Rufus waits patiently at home for his best friend to return. Then it is playtime until dinner!

Afternoon at the beach

Mom, Pickles, and Rufus are going to the beach after school this afternoon. It’s a beautiful day and a perfect one to play on the beach! Rufus loves digging a hole in the sand for a nap after playtime:)

School has begun

The school year has begun and Pickles is glad to see her friends again. Everyone wears a mask which is much easier than learning online. Rufus and Mom will meet her bus at 3:00!

The farm life

Anastasia and Rufus are spending the weekend with her friend Victoria who lives on a farm! Rufus loves their visits and finds all of the farm animals quite curious:)

Sunday afternoon

Pickles neighbor, Will, invited her and Rufus over for a cookout and pool day today. Rufus is snoozing in the shade with Houston, Will’s dog while Pickles and Will play in the pool. Everyone is having a great Sunday!

A day at the groomer

Rufus is at the groomer today for a bath and nail trim. Not being a fan of the water, Rufus always looks for a way to escape. Sorry buddy, no such luck today. You will go home a clean doggie despite your efforts!
