Spent the day working on genealogy stuff. If you're curious, I have a blog about that too.

Anyone have some perfect (and cheap) remedies?
Edit: I'm trying some vinegar and baking soda on a rag wrapped around my ankles. Working pretty well.

I lugged the vest, tennis balls, my camera and tripod down to the boat launch to tape the guys in the water. Moss is making some great dives off the dock.
Hop on over to my dog blog to see it HERE.

I found this idea which is tied shoulder straps. I don't know that I'd go to the grocery store in it, but it's cool and comfortable and I can answer the door and still be dressed.
One of these days I'll save up and buy a sewing machine. I could do a lot with all the unwearable clothes I've got laying around taking up space.

Days like this would worry me if I had the energy. I overslept by an hour and a half. Took the dogs out and had to nap when we got back. I've worked a little on the computer but haven't practiced at all. Drifted off again while reading.
Granted it has been a cloudy rainy day, but still.....

We were supposed to be attending a sheepdog clinic this weekend on a friend's farm. Unfortunately it was cancelled at the last possible minute. My friend invited all the people who had signed up for some training in her field. Not many people out on Friday but had some good runs with ole Moss.

I admit it. I always postpone this chore until I can't stand it anymore. I started with the little fridge. It wasn't so bad. The bigger fridge is worse. It has way more ice to defrost and the old "science experiments" in the back. I'd just love to have one new(er) fridge.

I thought I was doing good. I had two fat rolls of TP to get me through the week until I get my next paycheck. But as I ran out of the roll on the holder, I realized I couldn't find the two rolls I had stashed away somewhere. I really should be more careful when I decide to clean up around here. As evening wore on, I realized that this was rapidly becoming an emergency.
The only solution was to run to the corner store and spend some of my meager cash on a roll. Might as well get a gallon of water and a treat of 50-cent ice cream. So off I go into the twilight on my errand. When I get to the counter, all I can find in my pocketbook is three dollars. Now I had just bought gas earlier and had broken a twenty and put ten in gas in the van. I should have had a ten and some singles.
I went back out to the van and dumped my pocketbook into my hat. I did find the watch I thought I had lost last week. But no ten dollar bill.
Back to the counter and told the man at the register that I'd have to return the water. Bless his soul, he dug into the change bucket and found all but 20 cents. He let me take the ice cream, water and the TP and said I could pay him later.
I simply cannot find that ten. I even drove down to the park where I had let the dogs swim for a few minutes since they were so hot. Nothing. I checked pockets about five times. Nothing on my desk, on the floor, on the floor of the van. I definitely remember putting the ten in my pocketbook and I didn't buy anything until I went to the corner store.
I don't even want to think about where the two rolls of toilet paper are hiding....
Ed. The next morning I found the $10 on the floor of the van - almost in plain sight....
Ed: Found the toilet paper days later while hunting for a book. Found the book a few days after that. Making progress....

I definitely think having enough food is good for the morale. I'm not as depressed as I was the past couple of days. In fact, I'm feeling pretty cheery some of the time

Next came two boxes. One from my Amazon gift card from my sis. (LOVE those things. I broke down and bought a real luxury - a single serve blender. I've been so envious of people talking about their smoothies....now I can have one too. I did just make one out of milk and canned fruit. It was delicious.
The doggy water vest is going to have to go back. It's too small. I was so excited to be able to get Doc further out in the water so that he would use his back legs. He's going a little further every day but still not out far enough. I thought of modifying it but might as well just send it back. Phooey. Then again, maybe I'll modify it.
Last but not least came a box of shirts! Haven't tried them all on yet, but always like to have decent clothes! Thanks again, sis.
