Settling in on Sunday

I've been so neglectful of all things blog this last month and then I saw over at Sprite's Keeper that the spin topic this week is "behind the scenes of a blog." Among other prompts, Jen says "How do you keep your blog going when, you know, life gets in the way?"

I thought maybe if I started to write about it, I might figure out how to rev the blog back up.

The ideas chattering away made me think perhaps it was a post that might need to be done in parts.

But I've been grading.

And walking.

Today Daughter and I drove down to the beach I walked to yesterday. It is 3.2 miles.

So instead of Part One, you all get to see how BC makes friends at the beach.

Is that cute or what?

I love how patient BC is with the wee one.

Adorable!

(Taking a break during Lent, myself. Sundays don't count ;-)

Walking is good. Looking forward to Part One.

The Rambler said...

Totally understandable :) I took a month off and still feel like I can't get in gear!

And LOVED that video!! BC is so good with the little girl.

Sprite's Keeper said...

Aw! BC is so patient!
Still linking you because I know BC is an inspiration to you in blogging. :-)
And he's so damn cute, he needs to be linked!

Border Collies are so smart and cool. I love that little girl's chubby legs. I tried to break and kept on, I sort of wish I'd taken that time off. There's always tomorrow, I suppose. :)

Michele said...

What a good puppy. Those Border Collies are just the best thing.

BC seems like a sweetie... even I probably couldn't hate that dog.

lakeviewer said...

With such beautiful child around, and a full time job that creates more work than most, you are fully engaged every moment. Glad you share yourself and your life with us.

ds said...

Too cute! BC is very good and patient--and got the reward in the end (ball, yes!). Thanks for sharing.

Hilary said...

That is SUCH a good dog.. BC is so aware of how gentle he needs to be with the wee one. They make such an adorable pair.

Nice dispatch and this fill someone in on helped me alot in my college assignement. Say thank you you seeking your information.

blueviolet said...

BC is such a good pup! I think it's sweet how he befriended the little girl. Just ease into the blog as you feel it. Moving is a big change!

So cool! Look at that beach! Look at that super cute dog!
Love this post. It is dark and dreary and rainy here right now... just what I need.

Brian Miller said...

cute vid...was just nice seeing the beach as well...ah, i miss it...

idgtm said...

BC is a doll and has found a willing playmate. Too sweet.

My name is PJ. said...

ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!!!!!

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

OMG, how adorable! He puts my lazy pup to shame!!

Mrsbear said...

I'm sure you'll get back in to the swing of things. I'm having a bit of trouble lately myself.

I can see how BC would come in handy. He is super awesome. What a good dog.

Kristan said...

Oh wow! Riley is waaaay too hyper, hahaha. He'd be jumping up trying to lick the little girl's face. BC is a true gentleman. :)

Jan said...

BC is adorable! That is very, very sweet - Scooter would have either ignored her or been all up in her face.

Mama Badger said...

Wow, both the kid and BC were really well behaved there! Now, LG would have thrown his arms around BC's neck and forgotten all about the ball.

I think February should have been called "Blog Funk" month. We were all a little off our game.

So cute! I would love to have my 10 mnth. old grandson right there with on the beach playing with the BC.

♥ Braja said...

I don't know...that worked for me :))

JennyMac said...

She is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO adorable. Love her pink swim top. :)

And the beach...ahhhhh.

anymommy said...

Adorable. What a sweet dog, I can't believe he waited like that!

Erin@TheLocasLoveIt said...

What an adorable moment. Damn it now I want a dog and another baby!

And a beach would be nice too.

Captain Dumbass said...

That's awesome.

Stella said...

I find that walking HELPS with the writing. I walk for miles and miles and then I come home and bang...thirty minutes and I have three blogs written!

Melissa B. said...

Your puppy was awfully patient, waiting for the little girl to figure out how to "throw" the ball. Still waiting for a behind-the-scenes look at your blog, though...real life has been getting in the way of my online life, too!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

BC is awesome - just like his mama! ;)

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

Ahhh, pretty beach...

Cute dog ;)

tera said...

Aww. That is super cute. Even being a cat person, it almost makes me want a dog! Or a kid ;)
