#everydaygratitude I am grateful for this. Cruz has become Amber’s bestie. He takes care of her when she has one of her hyperventilating attacks, and will seem to protect her by sitting by her like, “I’m here.” Our little gentleman.

Looks too much like momma. (Lucy) She’s got this funky hair because she’s been playing in the pool! Been over 80 for almost two weeks, or just over that, so they get the kiddie pool filled to play in. Little cute curls on top. :p

Homemade chicken almond stir fry. Broccoli, onion, cauliflower, celery, almonds, and chicken strips to go over rice. Would’ve added carrots, but we are out. Funny part is that when I start chopping celery, kitty comes over for some! Dakota needs to be told she’s supposed to prefer catnip. #catsarenuts #cooking

Beginning part of my gardens throughout the grass. This is the edge by one of the driveways. Included steps so that side of the grass can still be entered by the mower. Overturned grass, dumped some soil fixer on top to help even out. This is why I’m glad it’s raining, lol. Backbreaking work.
