A while back I ordered 2 toys for X amount from Amazon. Only one, Polly parrot arrived, there was no puffin. Today, after contacting the company the day Lucy was shorted one puffin, she received both a puffin and another Polly. She wore herself out playing with them. Yes, she is quite spoiled. The company is Pet Craft Supply Company and they are fantastic. Since Lucy really doesn’t need two Pollys one will be donated to the local shelter for somebody else to enjoy. Thank you Alexandra of Pet Craft Supply Company for making Lucy happy.
I had a nice visit with a young man who came to do an estimate for window cleaning. The sunporch is in dire need and I have had no success in getting the windows clean.
Anyway, he’s Lucy approved and was more interested in what trees I had planted in my yard than counting windows. He and his wife are currently trying to grow stuff without a lot of success. I invited him to bring her over so she can snag some gladiolas and Japanese eggplants. (I am currently eggplanted out, the harvest has been so amazing that I am sick of them at the moment.)
I had an incredible harvest of tomatoes, peppers, and various herbs too. The garden is still producing. This is a picture from last month, the garden is almost twice the volume now.
I figured it was a good time to get in here and write another day in the life of…
Lucy and I had a quiet day yesterday. She is relegated to wearing a diaper most of the time and she really doesn’t seem to mind. I guess she too is of the opinion, better a diaper than a spoilt couch and heaps of embarrassment. The diapers are cute and colorful and easily removed for time in the yard. Even with her old girl bladder medication it seems she’s unable to control herself when deep in a morning or afternoon nap. Now she is not only more comfortably dry but she’s cute too.
The weather has become a tad chilly. We have actually dropped to the mid thirties at night and 50s and 60s during the day although this week it looks as though we’ll make it into the 70s during the day. I can live with that.
I find that I have put off hanging the pictures in my bedroom, not sure why, but I think it’s mainly because I don’t want to have to move my heavy bed. I have a couple pictures to hang in the guest room too.
I have also begun to wonder if I should have sold his grandfather’s bedroom set in PA instead of hauling it down here. It’s lovely but now I think it is completely unsuited to the guest room. Maybe I’ll try to sell the set and decorate the room in a more modern style. I really don’t need a wardrobe in that room.
Last post here was almost a year ago. Don’t know why I have neglected this page so much other than laziness or apathy on my part.
With all the Covid close downs and me self quarantining, I am a bit on the low side.
I miss having friends, seems that the neighbors here are not at all that friendly. I thought I’d made one friend but it turns out she was just a user. I should know better by now.
I don’t go anywhere other than to my doctor and Lucy’s vet. Seems in this area you often get catcalled and insulted for wanting to protect your vulnerable self by wearing a mask.
I miss sensible people. People who enjoy having a glass of wine and good discussions without falling down the rabbit hole of politics and conspiracy theories, and maybe playing a game or two. (Cards, dominoes, board games, any games.)
Yeah, I am often lonely, but then again I do like my solitude. Most times. I never mind a drop in guest or two though.
