Bill was up out of bed on Tuesday, Feb. 11th as soon as his alarm sounded. I heard it but rolled over, grateful not to have to get up yet. It was only 5:45. When he was done in the shower and had moved downstairs, I got up and joined him. He would be leaving for the day at 7 and I didn’t want to miss seeing him off. It was a very windy morning and although mild at 51F, I felt chilled and turned the heat pump up a couple of degrees.
|After a day's rest the sun came up for the full day|
I was going to go for my walk but waited until 8 after the sun was up and warming up the land. There were still a few large puddles I needed to avoid in the park but I managed to dodge them and get a mile and a half walked. On the way back home, I stopped and picked up Oreo’s rope so I could tie her up outside on our patio. She loves the outdoors which made it easy for me to offer dog-sitting. I’m glad the weather is favourable today or the scenario would be different.
|Look at this pretty face|
|We walked into the desert|
|Even the sand showed signs of a heavy rain|
(Oreo left her footprint too)
|I moved her bed around a few times|
to where she wouldn't get tangled in it
|Loyal and Mary were trimming trees all around our site|
they were back and forth within 25 feet of where Oreo sat
| Oreo showed no sign of disturbance|
They were 'ho-hum' to her and she'd lay her head down again
|Oreo loved the sunny spot|
|I took this sunset picture from the doorway|
|Supper by myself tonight|
but it was very good
Bill and I had pie after he got home
She deserved a couple more treats and a nice drink of water. I left the outside door open and she really wanted to come inside. Her Daddy wouldn’t be too much longer. Inside, I filled my water bottle and sat with my book. Supper for me would be simple. Leftover beef stew with some cauliflower and a bun. Since it is Tuesday night, our tv night, I made sure to have the satellite dish turned on so recordings would take place. I probably will watch This is Us.
Supper was good and after cleaning up dishes, Bill texted that they were 2 + hours away. I'd decided to take Oreo home to her own bed before it gets dark so around 6:30, I walked her up. She went in easy, up onto her couch bed. I said goodnight to her and closed the door. That’s when I heard her jump up on the bed. I popped the door open again to turn the light off and there she was up there, cute as a button. From there I walked to the puzzle room and was surprised to see Carmen walk in ahead of me. She was going to play horseracing in the clubhouse and was biding time.
|My favourite picture of the day|
|I took this close up from our bedroom window|
|The puzzle is coming along nicely|
|Walking back home in the dark|
I'm glad the park has street lights
We put even more pieces in and now I’m going to have to go up in the morning to work on it before it is done. When it comes to puzzles, I don’t concede well, in case you haven’t noticed! When I stepped out, the red sky was resting on the horizon and it was dark. That happened fast so obviously I’d taken Oreo home just in time. I walked back home just in time to watch my program. Bill walked in the door around 8 pm and had had a good day too. We watched some tv together after discussing our day.
