Beautiful Day!

What a beautiful day! Started off with trip to Caribou Coffee for a cold press with a shot of espresso and then vanilla with half and half. Next came a nice dog walk, the weather is divine today by the way, and the three of us met up with other dogs in the neighbourhood for a couple of impromptu dogie play dates. After we got home, Lucy and Ellie were tired so they each took a nap on the balcony. This is Lucy; she has such a pretty face!

Had lunch with CC Harmony from RealityBites and we went to one of our favorites restaurants in Shirlington, Carlyle, and we both had the Sesame Seared Ahi Tuna Salad on a bed of fresh greens with sticky rice and a lime vinaigrette dressing....Yum. But that wasn't the end of it...somehow, not sure how she did it, but CC twisted my arm into splitting a Mixed-Berry Shortcake with real whip cream and vanilla ice cream on the side for dessert. OMG, I LOVED
IT! I'm really not a shortcake kind of dessert person, but WOW!

Looks like we might get a summer rain storm in, the kind when the sky goes dark and then there is a loud clap of thunder and the sky lights up with streaks of lightning...Oh! I love these kinds of storms. I'm the kind of person who is drawn outside, and I like to stand in the middle of a storm to watch and listen to the awesome power of nature while I get soaking wet from a warm down-pour.

The best part about today; my rude ass neighbour from across the hall has moved...Yes! Rude Sarah is outta here.

It's the simple things in life that make me happy; good coffee, my dogs, nice walks, sharing good food with a good friend, summer rain storms, and being rid of a nasty neighbour. Today has been a great day!
