Today has been such a good day so far! I got JP off to work, had some breakfast, grabbed the mail and went for a walk to the mailbox and back. I must have gotten too much fresh air or something on that walk because I came in the house and decided that this is the day I'm gonna finally shampoo our carpets....hoo boy did they need it! So, of course, I had to detail vacuum before getting the shampooer out. So, here I go vacuuming along, even getting some of the dust on the tables when schwoop---there goes my favorite gold chain and cross necklace!! Sigh... I emptied the contents of the canister into a bakery box so I could pull it out and get on with it---was it there? No. Heavy Sigh... I knew I was gonna have to take that stupid (who's stupid?) thing apart. So, I got my little screwdriver and took the back part off and fished out my beloved necklace. Of course, I had the help of Charlie and Violet.
I must explain this picture. I've named it Violet's temptation. I had a Kleenex next to me while I was working and that is her absolute favorite thing to steal and eat, so she was waiting for me to turn my back. It's kind of like me trying to ignore a brownie--it's just one of those things.
So, I finally got the carpets completely finished! Yippee... :O) I decided to go outside where the dogs play and walk the fence to make sure no unwelcome guests can just waltz in and Scrappy can't get out. I found a few spots that needed attention and fixed them and, of course, there was a stick game going on.
I have forgotten to show you our first batch of homemade wine! It's White Grape/Cherry and it turned out really good.
The day isn't over, Corrie and Daisy have their annual check up this afternoon. Corrie isn't going to like it but Daisy loves any opportunity to get attention. Tomorrow I'll take Speedbump and Violet and we'll be all done for another year. Did I say there wasn't much going on here in a previous post? What planet was I on that day? We're enjoying the spring like weather here in the holler and so thankful for it.
Blessings from the holler to you...
