With the temperatures down below 100 degrees, it almost feels like autumn weather out there. I did break down and turn on the a/c at about 4pm (an hour ago).
My son and granddaughter (Steve and 3-yr old Quinn) came over yesterday to take Rocky to the vet for his annual checkup. It was a quick checkup at that, but at least they gave me some calming meds so I can get his nails trimmed.
Speaking of Quinn, what an adorable little girl she is! And what a personality!
Rocky is on my s*** list right now. I just bought him a new comfortable bed which was delivered yesterday, and which on closer inspection today, reveals two chewed spots in the top of it. He didn't waste any time getting to it. I don't know if anything can be done about a dog that chews everything in sight - my experience from years ago is that some dogs keep chewing for the rest of their lives. I am furious with him and he knows it.
My wrist doesn't hurt constantly lately, although it may be that I just don't think about it all the time. It's bad enough as it is, but better than it was.
It won't be long until September is over with. I think I missed Labor Day completely. So this year Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day have come and gone without so much as a firecracker going off in my neighborhood. I have been thinking how glad I am that I had everyone here last Christmas.
With my wrist such as it is - I haven't done any real housecleaning for months. I'm going to have to get motivated and do something soon, but wonder if it's even worth the effort.
I thought I had sworn off gardening after the debacle with the chinese seeds this year, but have decided i will try again next year. I don't intend to plant any seeds but will purchase tomato plants and set them out - I'm undecided on the zucchini and yellow squash as they grow so well from seed, but I'll have to see what is available at a garden store. I hope my wrist has healed by next March or April, at least well enough for me to handle the gardening chores. I have a birthday coming up in a couple of months, and wonder if I'll be too old to work in the garden next spring!
Have a good week!
