Wasn’t the election a beautiful thing to watch?
Today was a wasted day around here. When I woke, the heat was out again. Geez, it was repaired on Monday. Had to deal with that and of course it was a bit chilly in the house. I really did set out to work. I have a set of knitted designs I’m attempting to list on Ravelry and that is another learning curve I must negotiate. I wanted to finish the three projects I have lying on the table. I needed to vacuum and do the dishes. We needed dog food and soda so a shopping expedition was imminent.
And then there was Molly, the neurotic Labrador.
She stood and barked at me. I feed her. I treated her. I tried to ignore her. I threw both Labs out and shut the doggie door and left them for a while.
She scratched at the door.
I threw them out to the unfenced portion of the yard and briefly considered the possibility of a large, speeding truck making its way down our dead-end road.
That thought caused a great surge of guilt.
They apparently ran until their tongues were lolling on the floor when I let them return to the house.
And she barked at me again.
I checked the food bowl again. Bunny is kind of piggy and will sometimes eat all the food before Molly and Peanut get a share. Bowls were empty. I gave them more. Gave her one more treat after she calmed down and then I hid the pink elephant. The pink elephant holds the treats.
By the time the pink elephant found a new home brain fog had crept over me.
I couldn’t remember my name or where I live.
So I huddled under the throw on the sofa and dozed while waiting for the repairman.
He finally got here and repaired the heat again. No Charge. Good thing too. I wasn’t a happy camper about the situation. But they took care of it and I am grateful.
I did manage a shower. I did pick up dog food.
I do love my dogs, even the neurotic one…anyone know a good, cheap doggie therapist?
