Monday must-reads

Hello friends!

I hope you are all well. I’m enjoying my last few days of home comforts before I’m off to the big city. I’m currently trying to stockpile easy recipes to cook while I’m studying because otherwise I know I’ll become really lazy once the semester starts. Gummy worms probably aren’t a good substitute for dinner.

Before we get into this weeks reads, I’ve got a great work story to tell you.

If you didn’t know, I have been working at a motel over summer as a housekeeper. Cleaning the rooms and making beds, that sorta thing.

This was my final week of work (sob/woo hoo) and I got quite the send off…

So, my boss has a german shepherd puppy called Bodie, who exists solely to make my life as difficult as possible.

His greatest joy in life is running into the laundry and stealing the washing, that or trying to jump up and lick my face.

We have had two weeks of the most sticky, humid weather, and it has been torture. On Wednesday, we finally had rain, and boy did it come down in buckets.

I got to work on Wednesday in my big raincoat and out into the rain I trudged, wheeling my cleaning trolley.

As soon as my big toe was out the door, the dog came bounding over to say hello.

We were a bit of a circus…wheels, paws, pouring rain, slippery ground.

As I struggled to avoid slipping onto my behind, Bodie snuck a rag from my trolley. Then because one really isn’t enough, he proceeded to rip the entire bag off my trolley and race around the garden with it….rags flying everywhere!

So there I was, in the pouring rain, racing around the garden picking up rags behind the naughty dog, who was having a whale of a time.

Dogs just have this way about them that no matter how naughty they are you couldn’t possibily stay mad at them.

So Bodie and I are still great friends, I even let him chew on a hand towel or two (I mean what are friends for, right?)
