After I got home from church yesterday the mrs wanted to get started on cleaning the bona wax off the kitchen floor. We discovered the stuff is not recommended by Bella Wood. The cleaner requires leaving it set then scrubbing the gum like crap up with scratch pads. We worked 4 hours and got 2/3 of kitchen floor done. We'll save the rest for next time she has a day off. I have to lay on the floor to do this and today my back and hips are killing me.

Today I'll grill cook a standing rib roast, boiling some potatoes, and that's all I'm doing.

Just finishing up with the housework. The floors all vacuumed / cleaned.
Laundry is all done, just have towels to fold and put away. Easy!
Been playing Dr. / Nurse / Cook, / and whatever comes with running the house.
Mommy Tina is recovering from her fall ( Brain Concussion ) ; and now with Post Concussive Syndrome, she broke out with the shingles in her head / ear / neck / hair; all on the left side. Just taking each day at the time. Plus Prayers!

If it stops raining, We will have some steak grilled. I thin sliced hers and breaded it so she can just eat it like finger food.

I hate to hear that about Tina . I hope she recovers quickly. You two have been dealt more than your fair share of blows lately, so I hope you have a long, long period of good stuff.

The long weekend here was kind of funky. We had some strong thunder storms and some light hail. The power went out for hours, and when it came back on, the internet was down. It was down for quite a while. Gah

Thanks Cooksie! She is starting to at least get some sleep with the Lyrica drug he gave her.

I'm glad all is back on with the power and internet.

After I put out the top soil on my grass, giant earthworms started crawling up on my patio. I mean giant, like over 8 inches long. They're so gross. They crawl up on the tile, start to dry out, and the ants move in and eat them alive .

Over the past weekend, I also had the ugliest opossum alive come through my yard. Most of them are kind of an off white. This one was dark gray with dark black splotches. He looked like he might be rabid and run up and gnaw my foot off.

When I first saw him, I knocked on the window hoping to scare him away. That didn't bother him at all. I went outside and clapped my hands, and he just continued on his sniffing around. I stomped my feet and acted like I was coming after him, and he just stared at me with his beady black eyes. He finally sauntered off into the neighbors' yard .

I taught grade 4 in the morning and sped in the afternoon. I picked up jobs for the rest of the week.

Pick up those crawlers and go fishing. Everyone I pick up on the drive I throw into the herb bed.

For some reason I was not allowed to log onto NCT for many days. I'd get a message saying to refresh but still would not work.

Yesterday I did the first lawn mowing of the new sod. I still need to do the back and will do it this afternoon, between waterings.

I have became a victim of serious mania - knitting mania:

One symptom was this cardigan:



Then it continued with long sweater. This one is almost ready - just a collar is missing:



And after that I started again with new one:



Is there Anonymous Knitters- group somewhere? I would like to join...

Maybe it´s because of this heat of summer. I not know.

Long ago I posted a pic of the feral cats that were born under a shrub in my backyard. Well, those cats grew up and started having more kittens. They regularly come through my yard, and I can tell if they're about to pop with kittens or if they're nursing. I really enjoy them. They're like having my own cats without the responsibility.

My neighbor feeds them and has given them all very original names . The black one is Blackie, the calico is Callie, the original mother cat is Mama, and the orangey/red one is Red . I don't know what happened to the others.

For the last 4 to 5 days, I've been hearing something that sounds like a shotgun or pistol shot, don't know the difference. I didn't think much about it, just figured some kids were down at the lake shooting snakes, which is fine with me. Yesterday afternoon I realized that none of the cats have been through lately. I had an moment and thought...Surely Not. Just going to see what happens.

I *might* be adopting a little dog. I went for the meet today, and he is so sweet and loveable. He came right up to me, jumped up between my legs, and licked my hands. I was expecting him to be shy and standoffish.

That place is so heartbreaking. Some of them came up to window wagging their tails and putting their little paws on the glass .

Right now, I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that nothing goes wrong.

On a good note, Blackie and Callie have both been through the yard .

Cooksie, good luck with your new "maybe" doggy! Post pictures if you get him, please!

Is there anyone in your town/area who traps, neuters, and releases feral cats? I am surprised you are not overrun with them!

As long as you're touching him , he's a little sweetheart. Get out of his sight and the barking commences. We didn't have such a great night last night. He's about a 10 pounder, and he's a licker...fingers, toes, even my shirt.

There may be a service like that in the city. I live outside the city limits, and I don't think anybody does that out here. I've never checked on it. Those cats aren't bothering me, but I imagine some of the neighbors might feel differently. The guy who feeds them looks to be somewhere in his 80's, so I'm not calling on them and deprive him of his joy. He loves those cats, and goes out there and talks to them every day when he feeds them.

I've had two rescued dogs that came with separation anxiety - one went back to the pound and the English Cocker we stuck it out. It was 10 years of dog screaming every time I tried to take it out. Once we got to where he could run, he was fine. To travel he had to be medicated. He liked to fight, too, part of the reason he was given to us. It wasn't a problem unless it was another male - and he was castrated, too.

Your new dog is a cuties and hope it gets better.

Cooksie, what is your new sweetie pie's name? Did you keep the name he had?

How old is he? Why was he up for adoption?

He's a doll! Best of luck and keep us posted!
