Weekending: the end of the semester

Around here, it's a foggy, drizzly, unseasonably warm December Monday. With class all day on Saturday, it feels like the weekend just never arrived. The good news is, with the exception of one last paper and a discussion board post, my semester is over!

Gracie had a big weekend. She met her trainer on Sunday morning and we worked on leash training for issues related to jumping and puppy biting. We also worked on the heel command and the informal come command. She was a good student, and so were we. Later that afternoon, we went to our local Petco for a half hour of socialization at their puppy play group. She slept the rest of the afternoon; so much excitement must have been tiring. 

Gracie did get her own instagram feed. You can follow her adventures at or on her Facebook page at for curated content related to all-things pets. 

It was a fairly uneventful weekend, but the Señor and I managed to squeeze in a late afternoon coffee date. 

Sunday night was all about finishing up projects and watching the Patriots secure another win. 

It's a fairly quiet week ahead. I have training this week for our state mandated student testing, but then I have a mid-week girls' night out, Gracie's first vet well-check, and a date night with Señor to see a local production of A Christmas Carol. 

I hope all is well in your corner of the world. Have a great week, friends!


  1. I am so grateful for a quiet week ahead as well. And then, even though I don't celebrate :-), the Christmas craziness begins.

  2. That coffee looks so delish!!!

  3. It's a crazy kind of energy. I am grateful for the slow down between Christmas and New Year's.

  4. Hi Kelly! Good Luck on the testing this weekend and Congrats on concluding the end of the semester, love the coffee treat, lovely! Sounds as if Gracie is being kept quite occupied! Our late dog of 17, Vasca, Portuguese Water Dog used to jump up quite a lot as a puppy but then grew out of it, she was such a wonderful dog. Enjoy. Have a wonderful time seeing A Christmas Carol.

  5. So awesome he did well with his training. That coffee looks amazing.
