Meaningful Monday: Amazing Parents 07.08.13

This weekend I was reminded what a lucky lady I am.  If you read my post Friday Raised Beds or my post yesterday Kitchen Before and After you know that my parents were here helping me with the new house.  I don't take it for granted that my parents are incredible.  How many people have parents that would make a 10 hour drive through the night to come help with a weekend full of work?  I'm completely grateful.  It's not lost on me just how lucky and blessed I am. Here is a quick recap of just how awesome my parents are.

My dad brought a ton of tools because he didn't know what we'd need,

They wouldn't let me put my table together, they had too much fun doing it.

On this meaningful Monday take stock of the amazing people you have in your life.  I'm grateful for the ones in my life.

Greensboro is BEAUTIFUL

IMG_0993 I can't help but notice all of the little things that make my city beautiful.  Do you ever stop and notice.  Right now the azalea's are in full bloom.  The city is warming to spring and it makes me smile.

Lunch Time Delights!

I could be one of those people who works through lunch religiously.  All of the studies say that is not a good thing to do.  As a matter of fact it actually lowers productivity.  If I don't have a reason to leave for lunch, I'm ashamed to say I work through it.  Luckily for me I've got pets!  I hate the thought of Max having to hold it and hang out at the house alone all day while I'm at work.  So to ease my pet owning conscience and get away from the desk I run home to walk/pet/cuddle and hang out with my furry friends. Today happens to be on of those days, but in addition I'm using my lunch to blog (perks of living super close to work)!  When I got home I had a package on my door step from Amazon!  The books I ordered this weekend arrived!

Pema's Books!

I've got some Buddhist books on my reading list for tonight as you can see!

Babar is one of my all time favorite children's books!

I've also got this on the reading list! Children's books are pure pleasure to me. This is an extra treat for me to read tonight!  I'll probably read it out loud to the dogs, with voices and everything.

The dogs enjoyed the lunch time visit and even got to soak in some sun!

Sweet little queen of sheba!

Big Train!

Then I left them chillin on the bed ready for another nap while I head back to work. Wish I could join them...

In reality when I left the house, Mae had kicked Max off of the Bed (it's his bed mind you!) and they were both settled in.
