Take your Dragon to work day

So, Mommy hit the snooze bar too many times this morning and got up late.  She didn’t have time to situate me, so she put me in the car and took me to work with her.  I mean, she didn’t have any choice – right?  She hates to be late, and the snooze bar is right next to the bed.

Turns out, I’m pretty famous at Mommy’s work.  I sat at Mommy’s desk for a while watching her click a mouse for like a billion hours and then I got bored and decided to go look for a paper shredder or a printer, something that makes the ‘zzzzup’ sound.  I stopped and visited a bunch of people at their desks.  I have lots of pictures, but Mommy said she has to scrub identifiers off first, so I can only post a few today.  These are just a few of my buddies.

When I grow up

Stevie and I watched a television show about growing up.  I fell asleep half way through, I hope it comes on again tomorrow.  The lady on the show said that I can be anything I want to when I grow up.  Anything!  I am going to work on deciding what to be.

At first I wanted to be bright green or periwinkle with blue spots when I grow up, but Stevie said it doesn’t work that way.  He said I should choose stuff like astronaut, fireman, senator, and stuff like that.  This is something I should explore.  I am going to spend a lot of time on this decision because the lady on television said that I should explore all options.  What should I be?

I have a lot to think about.

Guard’n the Garden – again!

Today was probably my busiest day ever!  I started running amok from the time I got up until my nap.  After my nap I still had a lot to do.  A dragon’s work is never done.

Mommy ran amok with me.  She logged out of work this morning and we started right on the garden.  When it got too hot, we came in and started doing the floors.  Then I had a nap, and got right up and had oodles of dust bunnies to chase.  I got most of them.  We went back outside and finished gardening.  Actually, I mostly ate everything that was over 4 inches high.

Busy, busy, busy.
Busy, busy, busy.


Lucky Stars

While we were in Sedona, we sat outside because we could see the stars.  This is my first time to see the Milky Way.  Mommy is always saying she thanks her lucky stars, I don’t know which ones are the lucky ones and which are the unlucky ones.  I thanked them all anyway.

Environmental Bob!

When I woke up this morning, I was my usual extraordinary self.  Now I am an environmentalist!  Yesterday we raked all the leaves into a pile and put them in the compost.  Then we wet everything down.  This morning we wet everything again and added piles of black icky dirt.  It was a mess.

We used a Garden Weasel, which isn’t even a weasel, it is a pokey thing on a red metal stick.  It was a lot of work, Mommy put it in the ground and twisted and I ran after the piles of dirt.  I ate leaves and little flowery things and got really wound up.  We twisted the weasel into the dirt over and over and over.

Then we took a break.  I had a 30 minute nap and Mommy had a people food.  We went back out with a baggie full of seeds and a box full of root-looking things and went back to work.  We dug holes in the weasel dirt and put the roots in there, and covered them up.  Mommy calls them bulbs but not one of them lit up like the bulbs in the ceiling fan.

We put stepping stones down and sprinkled seeds all over the weasel dirt and poured more dirt on it.  We watered it some more and scrubbed the lawn ornaments with a brush.  We put the lawn ornaments between the seeds dirt and the bulb dirt.  Then we watered our weasel dirt patches with a sprinkler.

I love the sprinkler.  It is like water lands on me out of thin air!  I got wet, dirty and tired.

We came back in and I got a bath – I was so tired I almost fell asleep in my bath.  I have to go to bed now because I am totally worn out.

Halfway through my day, I needed a rest.
I’m guard’n the garden.
We got the stepping stones and lawn ornaments in.  Now we are seeding.

Rocks are NOT food!

If you ever want to see Mommy freak out, eat a rock.

I didn’t eat one because she took it away from me.  I got to go outside a lot this weekend but Mommy says if I want to go outside again, I have to learn that rocks are not food.  I don’t get it.  She is always trying to get me to expand my horizons:  I ride in a car, I go to her work, I try bananas, but I try to eat one rock and she flips out!
