Some say wool or copper is the traditional gift for a 7th year wedding anniversary. Mr. Wild Dingo prefers to make his own tradition and gave me air for our 7 years of marriage. The Ryobi Cordless Leaf Blower, makes my life a “breeze.” And sadly, I’m bit addicted to my new toy.
Since building the doggie patio, it’s effortless to blow the dirt and wood chips off that build up from the evil-duo’s (not evil do-ers) daily shenanigans and wrestling matches. Every day, I practically wiz through cleaning up the yard just so I can whip out that leaf blower and ease back into “sweeping” my patio. And whenever one of his outdoor projects calls for some clean up, I’m Johnny-on-the-Spot…the first to offer my help with that blower. You know, because, regardless, it is work. Standing there, pointing air at leaves and dirt…its like, work. I could be sitting on the couch watching Lifetime television. But instead, I’m outside, holding a power tool. So it’s work. And it counts.
And because I’m a bit of neat freak, his gift is extra thoughtful. I thought about giving him a tube of hydrocortisone, you know for that 7 year itch. But instead, I think I’ll just give him a 1 month unlimited use of my new leaf blower for all outdoor clean up tasks. Just because I’m thoughtful that way.
Speaking of thoughtful, here is a few photos of Loki being thoughtful with Juno. Or is it the other way around? And has anyone noticed that that husky filled out a little bit? She was supposed to gain 2 or 3 more pounds, but I think she’s gone a little too far now. She went and got herself some cankles. More bitin’ areas for Loki.
Can’t get enough of your love baby.
His surrogate Juno
