today they got presents... and have been taking turns throwing them in the air and chasing them, playing fetch, and generally living up to the nick name "cat TV"
today was fabulous. begun at the barn, accompanied by h's sister. she expedited the whole process, and finishing early i rode eli, a very dashing warmblood thoroughbred cross who often feel mischievous while cantering around corners.
this was followed by a little decompression while grabbing a quick ice cream sandwich and watching top chef.
G. and i then went down town to grab a drink and soak up some vitamin d. which we did, champane and pomegranate margaritas, edemame and curry chicken skewers.
after finishing up, and not quite ready to go home, we wandered around rittenhouse which was swarming with parents chasing screaming kids, bikes and so many cute puppies.
Basicly, the day was amazing, finished off with snuggles on the couch watching silly tv about huge fish, and eating TV dinners of heaping piles of couscous feta and fresh sauteed spinach.
and here is a peek back into the flower show, some if which we are dreaming up in our back yard:
this is pretty much how our backyard will look when we are done (if a jungle grows in the 9 1/2 foot long raised bed we built)
