No laughing! You knew this was coming. I’ve put up posters, harassed people, and made numerous phone calls. No one will take a stray dog. No one will pick it up. So…for now I guess we have a dog. I have named her Sadie, though Gary wanted “Sara”. (I thought that sounded too much like a girl, not a dog.) We are taking her to the vet on Thursday when we get back from our trip to OKC. She’ll need shots and surgery. After I spend $90 on her I’ll probably feel a lot more attached! She seems calmer now that I’m a little calmer around her. I still get startled in the yard sometimes when I suddenly have a wet nose against my leg. You have to remember that there are six pit bulls (plus the other mutts) across the road. (Did I tell you one has a milky white eye? Yuk!)
Everything else is going well, despite the heat.
I’m adjusting quite well to the new refrigerator. I think we’ve had salad at least once a day since we got it. I can make Jello again. Gary LOVES Jello. I can keep cold, not frozen, water.
Gary bought a new grill today, so I guess we’ll soon be having steak with our salad!
I bought a new sprinkler and it is helping to keep the flowers alive. I’ve already given up on the lawn. I finally have a few pictures from our yard. One is the lily by the back door. The other is our “wild” Shasta daisies. They have gotten completely out of hand and I need to divide them again.
If you wonder why we haven’t been great about taking flower pictures lately it’s because we are in the middle of several projects. I have to have “before” photos for the wildflower grant application. We’re taking downtown photos for a “scavenger hunt” contest. We just finished taking pictures of the “yard of the month”. We’re taking pictures of area historical markers and plaques. We took two rolls of pictures in Tulsa.
Have to keep this short because we’re getting ready to leave in the morning. We’re going to OKC for a couple of days. I plan to see the Oklahoma History Museum and whatever else strikes our fancy. Later…
