I had to remind myself of that. So. Damned. Many. Times. Too many. I was feeling tired, worn down, depressed, annoyed, headachy, and just trying to find something--anything--to do. I didn't wanna clean house, and it was a bit hot outside so I didn't take the dogs out right away when I got home. Rather, … Continue reading In spite of everything, we’ve had some crazy beautiful weather out there…
For those who've read here before, you know I generally HATE Sundays. I've hated them because of how some places just aren't open, or close so early, or open so late, and that hour between 2 and 3 just drags on forever. By the time you decide to go somewhere, everybody else has had the … Continue reading Feels like it’s going to be weeks & weeks of Sundays (most of the time).
That's probably my fave part of the film. Still don't think I've seen the whole thing. Anyhoo-- My plans were a bit boring. I didn't get to bed til about 1:30, and with only the furry kids in the house today, I took my time waking up. I gave 'em hugs for puppy kisses, fed … Continue reading My Christmas today could’ve been a cut-scene from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
I wasn't alone, not really. Had my finned, feathered, and pawed family around me all day, and the weather was nice enough (temperature-wise) that we spent a good chunk of time outside. I didn't get any turkey today. Didn't care about whether I got any or not, either. Started with pumpkin pie and whipped cream … Continue reading A Pathetically Boring Thanksgiving That’ll Give Way to a Great Weekend…
image from crookedbrains.net I've been missing in action because being the parental figure/food god of pawed or feathered beings wasn't enough. I had to add fins to the mix this week. A. Lot. Of. Fins (and antennae). At first I was going for flippers. I love turtles, always have. And I went to the pet … Continue reading Overcoming depression & a lack of artistic inspiration with a fish tank (or two)…
(Not my chair, but definitely one of my rugs because carpet sucks [pic from esalerugs.com]) Rest assured, I have not suddenly become a Stepford wife or something that's gone the route of June Cleaver wannabe. I made some plans and finally figured out how to get a good dose of cleaning done today instead of … Continue reading I’ve spent about 10 hours today trying to scour my new place…& I’m totally happy about it.
Maybe my heeler's a late bloomer in some aspects, but until the past couple of months, I really couldn't think of her as a car-chaser. Now, I know she's got the instinct in her somewhere. The first blue heelers I ever saw were thanks to my next door neighbor years ago. They had one that … Continue reading #104– Why do dogs chase cars?
Aww...look at that cutie-patootie. That's my boy, once he stopped scratching his back on the grass just a few days ago. He looked up at me like "what are you doing with that phone?" Then he just started panting and wagging that tail. Well, I got home late and the pups really needed to go … Continue reading My Dog Just Killed a Possum. Scared the Hell Out of Me!
This one hit me a few days ago when I saw my long-haired blonde retriever-mix dog out in the yard. He was running around on his 40 foot tether line and then lay down, rolled over, and started itching his back back and forth on the ground. Made a funny moment and a damned cute … Continue reading #097– How Come Dogs Don’t Get Grass Stains On Their Fur?
I'm just glad I wasn't yawning so much today (dunno why I can't stop and am so tired) that I couldn't see what was going on. My retriever-mix is an opportunist of epic proportions, especially when it comes to getting outside the door and into the wider world. There's a reason I have to bathe … Continue reading Keeping a Step Ahead of an Escape-Artist Dog in the Sticks
