I've got a meatloaf in the oven, some potatoes coming to a boil, some frozen corn in a pot with S&P and smoked paprika, and some freshly hard cooked eggs in the fridge... for later. Busy night.

I certainly am allergic to morning. I even have a little Snoopy figurine to attest to that:

I don't mind daylight, and I really like fresh air when it's the right temp. Hence, my pretense at being a cleaning lady and washing screens - but using soapy water should have taken care of any dust, right?

I'm listening to the baseball game online, wondering if I should pour a wee bit more beer from the growler. Stopped for fresh brew from the guy in the next town so we had some for our fish fry tonight and our hot dogs tomorrow. I have no idea what the ABV is but I'm finding this to be a very happy beer. Yup, happy, not hoppy.

I'm putting my feet up after a bit of a wild day. I had intended not to go out but get caught up on laundry and work on my never-ending craft studio reno.

TB was dealing with the flu still so I held off on laundry so he could rest and wasn't sure when he was taking his shower. I just got a load in after he left for work at 1 pm when a young woman who has been like a daughter to us called quite upset. Her Mom breeds Bull Terriors and was at a dog show in California. Her Dad stayed home with a new litter of pups but also hurt his foot badly and wasn't moving around easily. He called his daughter this morning to say one of the older dogs was dead in her kennel. The young woman is newly separated and has two young children and no vehicle. So, I ended up picking her and the dog up and taking it to the vet for cremation. I am an animal lover through and through and will help out in any way I can.

Then I went to Costco for an item they didn't have...I got out 1 hour and $175 later. When the cashier asked if I got everything I needed I said "nope, but I got everything I didn't need"!

I came home to our little monkey asleep on a table just inside the door way on some reusable grocery bags. It was cute but also a start. I wrote about it in the smile thread but since have learned that she got out (must have been when I left) and our neighbour's granddaughter caught her. The neighbour has a key, so her granddaughter put Monkey inside on that table. I guess that is where she stayed!

Finally, I am worried about Violet. She has been glued to me all day and is whining a lot. I am hoping her hips aren't bothering her again. There isn't much more they can giver her for the pain. We were told about laser treatments but I have done research and it seems 50/50 whether they work or not.

Right now I am the queen of multitasking. I have a load of clothes in the washer, I'm waiting for the potatoes and eggs to cook for the potato salad for later, I'm pulling all kinds of long hairs from the brushes on my vacuum cleaner (yick!), and in between yanks I'm taking a bite from a goose liver-on-rye-with-mustard sandwich and skimming through DC. AND I'm trying to listen to the Indians game, but with all these other windows open the media player keeps quitting. Guess I have to pick. Sorry guys, I got a game I want to hear! Later. *waves*

I just got back in from a day at the range. Well, a couple hours anyway.
A hawk built her nest in the tree right above where I satand to shoot pistols. She was sitting inside the nest. I saw her land in it when I was shooting rifles from 100 yds away, so I guess I wasn't bothering her too bad...she always could have built another nest, as I've been shooting every week so she must have known. I'm sure she'll get more comfortable once the tree gets leaves on it.
This was a pic with my point and shoot from 100 yds away. You can just make out her head.

I am the last of the big-time procrastinators with my taxes. They are done, somewhat, but I always do them, set them aside, then go back a day or two later and double check to be sure I'm right. I don't know why I put it off. I get everything back now that we're retired. But I figure the sooner we get it the sooner we'll spend it. I'll finish it tomorrow. I had to check back on last year's because something didn't look right and I saw that I did last year's wrong. The error didn't effect the bottom line, so that's probably why I didn't hear from the IRS. It was a stupid mistake. I didn't thoroughly read and follow the instructions.

I'm nursing a sick TB once again. He was doing so much better this week but was up most of the night with stomach problems. It looks like our date night of dinner and a movie (Nando's and Captain America) will become dinner and a movie in (Homemade soup and Silver Linings Playbook).

I am also inventorying all my wool for what looks like I can officially call my crochet business. I just shipped out an order and my friend wants another hat for a photo shoot next week. I have it designed, so it won't take much to do it. But I need to keep track of my yarn (amounts I have and cost) so I can fairly price the finished products.

Did you see it move? Himself magnified the image to the bazillionth degree and to us it still looks like a cluster of leaves.

I saw it fly in. I was looking at the nest when she raised her head up.
