I'm just checking in, so you don't think I've "checked out"! Not much is new - the same old routine: throw the ball to Rocky in the backyard; walk Rocky several times a day; look at my floors and wonder if I can ever get them clean from the dirt Rocky brings in, and so on.
Not much rain yesterday or this morning, although the forecast calls for it. It's a blessedly cool morning in the upper 50's and will get just a little warmer later on. I love sweatshirt weather, so I'm happy with it.
I ordered a big bag of dog food (32#), which they deliver to the door. It is difficult for me to even push the box into the house, but I managed. Along with the food I got a couple of treats that have the word "calming" in their descriptions! I'm not so sure he is any more calm after eating one, but if I thought the vet would do it I'd ask for a doggie prescription for Prozac! I still haven't figured out if he's just going into his "terrible two's", or if its a reaction from the move. Probably a little of both. I feel bad for him without other doggie interaction but I can't do anything about it. I sometimes feel bad for myself without much people interaction. I guess this is what growing old looks like.
If I said all this in a past post, I apologize. You know how the old folks repeat themselves :-)
At 10 AM I'm already looking forward to my dinner this evening - greens and cornbread!
I don't know if I mentioned it but last week my granddaughter's class (Arianna) had their trip to Yosemite NP for a week. They ended up being evacuated a couple of days early because of snow. I haven't had a chance to talk to Jeanne about it yet, but I'm relieved they are out of that place. I get a bad feeling thinking about Yosemite, and I don't know why as I've been in so many other national parks and always liked them. I was in Yosemite once and that was in the 1980's. I didn't think I'd ever lose the desire to go camping, but I just can't get into it now.
I'm trying to get up the initiative to tackle the living room floor. It's difficult because I know by the end of the day it will be just as bad as ever.
Enjoy the weekend, wherever you are.
Correction: The evacuation from Yosemite was because of the rain.
