The day is warm and muggy, two loads of washing are out on the line, and Hubby has hoovered right through the house getting rid of all the cobwebs that tend to get missed when just ‘sweeping through’. We invested in a small manual sweeper some time ago rather than get the hoover out every day. Not having a dog now means no dog hairs to clear up, though saying that, we still miss Maggie terribly.
We were looking on some of the rescue sites yesterday and several dogs showed promise until we read more details. All five we were interested in had socialising issues, and for someone like me who is constantly fussing dogs when I see them, this is not fair on a dog who is already unsure of other canines, and thus might see them all as a threat. Two had to be the only pet in the house and not be left alone, and two, even though over 2 years of age, weren’t house trained.
Don’t get me wrong, we could probably have coped and given the dog a forever home, but if it hadn’t worked out, where would that leave poor doggy? We have to think with our heads, not our heart. If I let that rule, I would have at least 20 dogs by now.
On the agenda today is dusting and polishing for me in a minute, and cutting the grass.
One of our tomato plants is also dying off so we shall pick the remaining fruit and pull it.
The other one is going mad and we have a lot more flowers on it. I have four full bags of tomatoes in the freezer which shall be ideal for my pasta dishes, so I won’t have to buy any for months. The media is full of potential food shortages for a variety of reasons, so I am glad we shop as and when we do as so far, we have managed to keep on top of it all.
Hope you are all looking forward to a relaxing Sunday.
Weigh in was good and I’ve maintained again this week so well pleased as I over indulged in syns on a few occasions. Lunch today is corned beef hash, so nothing too fancy.
