Mom's have weird ideas of.....

Really - the Mom has such a weird idea of being BORED. Yesterday with the temps only being 8 degrees outside she gave us BOTH a bath, then blow dried us and brushed us out. (Don't worry, she wouldn't let us outside for hours until we were completely dry - the woman is crazy but not THAT crazy).  It took 11 towels to dry us off - which of coarse then had to be washed and dried too. After all the brushing it lead to the rug having to be vacuumed because for some reason there was suddenly hair all over it (doh) and the wood floors needed steam cleaning because wet paws prints suddenly appeared all over it (more doh). Check out our sparkling white coats - you need sunglasses to look at us we are so bright!!!!

After she finished torturing making us pretty she finished painting 2 sweat shirts, made  30 cards to donate to a Sheltie Rescue group and started on 2 t-shirts she is also donating to the same group. She then made a quiche from scratch, spaghetti and meatballs for Dad's dinner, a batch of oatmeal raisin cookies and some carrot/apple/banana cookies for ME us. She then had to vacuum the rug again because cookie crumbs suddenly appeared on it bawwwaaaahhhh bawwwaaaaah.

Seriously Mom - WILL YOU PLEASE SIT DOWN - you are making us tired following you around but how about a couple more of those cookies before you do.

For those of you who asked - YES there will be more additions of "The Reilly Fraction"  and of coarse I have an Aussie accent - I have been listening to Mom telling me what to do for the last seven years haven't I????

And check this out - Mom just braved the 13 degree temp this morning to take this gorgeous sunrise !

  21. I hope my mom won't kill her boredom by giving me a shower like yours but I've a feeling that this day is coming soon. Oh no!

    Gorgeous picture of sunrise!

  22. That is the worst case of cabin fever I have ever heard of! A photo like that sunrise (and clean dogs) make it all worth it though, right?!? :)

  23. OMD I need a nap! And you got a bath? I am crossing paws that mom doesn't get any ideas with our "warm up" coming. We don't use a hair dryer only towels! Is you mom Aussie? I couldn't tell what her accent was on TV thought it British. Love Dolly
