We were thinking about trying to get something like a dog house for our two fluff-balls in our yard when I mentioned that Ocean loves to climb on things…
I’ve seen smaller castles.
Well, today has been a beautiful day. Yes, I’m stuck at home. Yes, I can’t really leave. But I still managed to have a great day.
I walked our two pooches around our mostly-empty streets until we were all breathless and then headed home for a lovely cup of tea.
Then I decided to bake.
Yum! Banana bread! And have a healthy smoothy!
If you’re interested in the recipes, here they are: banana bread, the smoothy is a concoction that I created made with 2 green apples, coconut water, O.J, baby spinach, parsley and some frozen mango. It was actually so yummy!
This Friday, a colleague at work asked me if I was starting to stock up food just in case the Corona Virus became a pandemic. Well, I hadn’t even thought about stocking up on food, but as soon as she asked, I was mentally going through the contents of the pantry at home imagining us fighting over the last grain of rice.
This is where my dogs can teach me a lesson. They don’t worry about the corona virus, they don’t worry about their food supply, they don’t even worry about their next meal. They simply trust that things will work out
Instead, I dragged my hapless hubby through endless stores, worried about calamity after calamity and bought a ridiculous amount of tuna.
I’ve been seeing these online recently. They claim to be really good for the dogs (or cats) because the fake fur reminds them of their mother’s fur and that creates a better sleep. It might all be a load of poo poo, but I thought I’d share this and see if anyone has had any success with these.
True, we just bought our dogs new beds and true, we have a house that’s covered with moving boxes that we should be focussing on…but hey, who ever said I’m logical?
Shhh! I’m supposed to be packing and putting things into boxes. But I snuck away from things for a second to do this post. No one knows I’m here.
We’re finally moving today. There are things everywhere. My lovely hubby is running around the house shoving things into boxes with little or no sense of order. The dogs definitely know something is up and they’re following us around the house like shadows.
I didn’t sleep well last night, partly because my ongoing cold made an unwanted comeback and partly because I was so nervous about today. The movers are coming any minute now. We have a very kind friend coming to unhook the TV’s and hook them back up in our new place. There’s a internet guy coming to the new place to make sure we have internet today.
It’s going to be crazy.
I did explain to both fluffy doggiest how things were going to run today. I was very clear that they would not be left behind, that they were coming with us and that they would have a brand new house to explore and a brand new yard with a lovely new fence. This seemed to reassure both of them (well, that and the kisses that went along with the explanation) and they’re more relaxed now.
Hubby took one look at my face this morning and went to get two XL coffees.
Oh oh. He found me. I gotta go.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that my hubby is still giving me the evil eye. In a display of incredible genius, I thew out my hubby’s new, never-used winter boots along with our other extras going to Goodwill. So, yesterday, we were back at the stores getting him a second pair of boots.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that our doggies know something is up. They keep watching us putting things in boxes and sniffing the contents with concern. I don’t know that they understand exactly what’s going on but I think they certainly know somethings up.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that, as much as we have already done, it seems that there is stuff to pack everywhere you look. The garage itself is a nightmare for packing that I dread even starting. How do you pack a rake? A bottles of nameless fluids? Cables and brooms? Tools none of which are the same size?
Definitely, more coffee is needed.
