Just an ordinary day?

Awaken, get up and dressed then let the dogs out into the garden. Feed them. Yes, they have two meals per day. In fact quite a lot of the day revolves around them.
Guess who forgot something quite important! Tomatoes! In fact going to open the greenhouse door wide every morning, checking on the toms, feeding/watering them and harvesting the newly ripened ones!
I'm coming to the end of my studies for this year (February to October inclusive). Things are rather fraught as I have 2000 words to find for a report. Then there's a series of web pages to construct using an antiquated user unfriendly program with the unlikely name of Web Wizard. It's a course about the environment and my topic is Fracking (hydraulic fractioning). I've given myself till the end of the week to complete the report.
So, after breakfast I settle down to read, make notes and think thro' the project. After a couple of hours it's time to let the dogs out to as my friend M says 'make them comfortable. Settling back to my studies until about 2.30 pm... Now it's time for their 'constitutional' an old-fashioned term meaning to go for a walk. I put their leads and OH goes our with them. Suddenly there's peace and quiet...time to use the vacuum cleaner without being challenged by z-dog who seems to think it needs a 'seeing to'.
The threesome return...all noise and bustle.


Almost forgot to say "Thank you" to Sayre for posting the topic. She very kindly gave everyone another opportunity to take part in Fun Monday.

Good luck with your assignment. May it go very well indeed.

Much of my day revolves around my dogs too - when I'm home. The two big dogs, other than being attention hounds actually take care of themselves quite well. But I now have an old miniature dachsund who needs to be put out at regular intervals, bathed a couple of times a week and seriously loved upon. We are her new and last family. When we all have to be away for the day, she's very good about using papers in the bathroom but doesn't always make it there.

I rather envy you your school pursuits. I'd love to do something like that but haven't the time right now...

My dogs would love to come live with you! I imagine having the day revolve around them would be just dandy! Mine have to settle for a bit of playtime during the day. :-)

Although it's many years since I lost my beloved dog I still miss my daily walks.

Writing a paper sounds horrible right now. I used to do it late at night, though, with a huge bottle of diet pepsi and some sugary candy.. and I could go for that... hope it goes well for you.
