I thought the saying was ‘I am having one of those days’. So who changed it on me without notice? I decided not to write for a while... took a while to reach that goal, but it is finally working... sort of. Snoop is happy, someone has to be. Last weekend started with my back going out on me. Of course I couldn’t get it fixed because the doctor isn’t in. I got through that in various degrees of pain and relief. I read several books…. well, maybe two. I have had company, we were making fresh garden vegetable soup, and it is very good… stock pots were a little small, but we got past it. 48 quarts later. Then we decided to wait a couple days and make a HM beef stew. Sigh. Stock pots still couldn’t hold it all… what is with this? I swear they shrunk during the time we started to when we were finished. Anyway, we have a winter’s supply of stew in the freezer. We also made spaghetti sauce and will have that for a long time. All this before getting my back straightened out.
The night all this ended, we went catapulting into the fire. Thankfully not literally, but in a way that has made me feel spooked. During the night someone came onto the property and stole my brother’s truck and my niece’s little 4X4. They opened all the other vehicles and took all my change from the ash tray in my van. So not happy about this. We reported it to the RCMP and the insurance co. Then the next night they came to finish the job, going as far as to enter the house to look for the key. Not sure if they were spooked by my attack cat, or if the thought of climbing all over the stockpots and the garbage bag of peelings from the veggies, sometimes you think there has to be a reason for clutter. The mess has been cleaned up since, keeping things inside so the rodents and racoons don’t get into it during the night must have worked in more ways than one. Either way, my van is still parked outside.
Snoop has taken this all in stride. They didn’t disturb his sleep, he is still getting cuddled and fed, so everything is okay. They could have taken those 2 pugs with them though... even if they do give him extra heat when they surround him. To be truthful they are the same size as he is and he isn’t intimidated, (we have even caught him curled up with them and as they share his coloring you have to take a second glance to realize he is there). Now, if they would only leave his food dish alone.
