Duck Hunting

Well, not really duck hunting. It was more like rabbit hunting. We went for a little walk after it cooled down this evening and Maggie stopped dead in her tracks and pointed. We knew there must be a rabbit somewhere as she LOVES rabbits. Sure enough she saw one and off she went. A lady who had stopped to watch her said "oh I hope it's not one that the neighbor lady has named" Me too my dear. I told her that Maggie likes to Think she can get rabbits, but hasn't brought any home yet. Maybe she should stick to ducks. Nobody around here names the ducks.

Dinner is served

My husband never ceases to amaze me! I went out to dinner with friends the other night and he had to fix his own dinner. Well, let me back up a bit. The night before I was cleaning the freezer out and found some chicken breasts that had been in there too long. Freezer burn upon freezer burn. So, I chopped it up and slightly cooked it for the dog and cat. I told HRH that I was putting it in a baggie and that it was essentially "dog food". Well, when I came home from a lovely dinner with friends, he was on the couch eating his dinner. Upon closer inspection, I saw that he had a baggie of "something". I yelled in my not so lady like voice. For heaven's sake, you are eating dog food!". We had a good laugh and I gave it to Maggie. Hubby said, I wondered why the dog was looking at me funny! I told him that from now on I wasn't going to worry about making a delicious dinner, I was just going to open a can of ALPO! Can you believe it. A few months back I bought dog biscuits that looked like those vanilla and chocolate sandwich cookies and left those out and he ate a couple of those. Then he told me not to buy that brand anymore because they weren't very good. Discriminating taste. He doesn't dine, HE FEEDS!

General maintenance

You know how you need to do general maintenance on the furnace, car and the roof of the house?
Well, we need to do the same with our bodies, especially when we reach that menopause (little feet, paws, as my grown son calls it). Well this past week I visited the electrologist to get that ever appearing stuff on my chin removed. Even though it is blonde, or white. I can't tell the difference, I still didn't want it there. I get it done every 5 years or so and I remember the pain, although minimally, even after that long. Boy, howdy, how it hurts, but really no more than waxing and it's permanent! Have any of you had this done?

As a teenager, I had dark hair over my lip and was teased to no end about it. It hurt so bad I still remember it. When I married and had the money to have it permanently removed, I felt like a new person. I only wished I had known about it sooner. I would have babysat, done yard work or whatever to earn the money to do that.

The second thing I did was get a body perm. I have very heavy hair and a lot of it and wear my hair in a modified wedge cut. It seems that by the end of the day it is flat. I hate the first few weeks as I'm not supposed to blow dry it straight to preserve the curl. So curly I am and curly I'll be for a while.

Thirdly, The perm takes the color right out so I have to get it colored, or do it myself. I also have to wait to put permanent color on for a couple of weeks. THEN, I'll be like a new person, almost.

Next in my dreams, a personal trainer and a tuck and suck (tummy tuck and liposuction).
I can't quite work that one into my budget, but a girl can dream. I think that would be a lot easier than just dieting, don't you?

Until next time, take care and make it a great day, week or month.
