Breaking my silence

Posted on

I haven’t been blogging much lately and I blame the weather.

We’ve had snow and freezing rain almost every day since November. It’s been brutally cold since November. There have been about 5 sunny days since November. Okay these might be slight exaggerations but they’re not too far off. People who actually like winter are fed up!

If this keeps up I’m going to throw myself under a snowplow and end things once and for all!

Dentist the Menace

Posted on

As my dog is always chewing something (sticks, dry food, biscuits…) it never occurred to me that his teeth would be bad.  So I was really surprised when his vet said he would have to have some teeth removed as well as cleaned.  I felt terrible!  But it had to be done.  He seemed fine when I took him in on the day and actually trotted off with the technician without a backward glance.  That should have been my clue to how he was feeling towards me.  I knew he was in good hands, but that didn’t stop me from worrying.

I was so relieved when they called to say he was resting comfortably and could be picked up later that evening.  I thought for sure he would be happy to see me but when they brought him in he made right for the door with a glance my way that spoke volumes (of swear words)!  It wasn’t until just before bedtime that he acknowledged my presence and that was only when I gave him a little snack.

Well it hasn’t been that long and he’s already finding sticks on our walks and happily chewing away as if he hadn’t lost a single tooth.

Time Management

Posted on

Time seems to fly by so quickly these days that I’m finding it harder and harder to get anything done.  Work, laundry, house cleaning, groceries and the biggest time consumer of all getting dressed to go out in the cold, leave little time for fun things like painting and long dog walks.  I know it’s probably an age thing but it would be great if I could just make time stand still for a bit…

Merry Christmas!

I can’t believe it’s that time of year again, the time has gone by so fast.  I’m still waiting for the leaves to fall!  There just never seemed to be enough time to do anything so a lot of New Year’s resolutions are in order!

Bad weather and under it…

Posted on

I’m just getting over a cold and it’s all because of the crazy weather we’ve been having.  One minute it’s mild and raining, the next it’s bitter cold and snow.  I just can’t seem to get warm these days.  With everything I wear you’d think I’d be nice and toasty, but no I’m always freezing.   And all that clothing weighs me down, holding my dog up on his walks.

Everyone and their dog…

Posted on

Now that winter is settling in (at least it feels like it to me) I realize how unusually nice September and early October were.  Since there wasn’t much of a summer (again according to me) I think we deserve it.  And it seemed to bring us together, the subject of the lovely weather working it’s way into our conversations.  Jobs that have to be done in the Fall are more enjoyable to do when it’s warm.  So this year we all spent more time outside taking advantage of the mild weather…
