Our dogs in this photo pretty much personify how my day has gone so far. I took some photos of them, I vacuumed (they are shedding so much hair right now I feel like the house is actually growing its own hair too), I read a lot of random blog posts and commented on most of them, and I thought a lot about working on my current crochet project. I also thought about starting a cross stitch project which I want to do for Mattie’s nerd cave, and I got tired of Sashi begging all day long for treats, snacks, and handouts. We never hand feed our dogs anything but all day today she has begged as if its a regular occurrence. Nope. Not happening dog. That’s her hopeful “please give me all the things” face, BTW.
I did practice my ukulele some this afternoon though and will hopefully practice it again this evening before bed. Tomorrow I will check my finances again and see about calling a local music store to get in for a lesson this week if I can. I’m trying a different strumming method than I had been using and while it’s a bit slow to sink in (I’ve been using the other method for 3 whole weeks- an eternity! LOL), I think I’m getting it and it does sound fuller and louder. I also feel like I’m hitting all the strings better as well.
Tomorrow I’ll be taking Mattie’s dad around for a few errands in the afternoon, and then we’ve got pool in the evening. The season is almost over and pretty soon we’ll be getting our payouts for our wins. I don’t have as many wins as I had hoped to have this season but I’ll take what I’ve got!
We finally caught the mouse that was in the bedroom, though I’m not quite sure when. It was starting to get a little stinky when we remembered to check the mousetrap today and of course Sashi is obsessed with the idea of getting into the trashcan to get the nasty old thing. I swear the worse something smells the more that dog wants it. Yuck! I reset the trap in case he had a friend hanging around but I really think there was just the one.
I’m also feeling almost back to normal. I haven’t sneezed in two days and while I’m still blowing my nose, its been like once every few hours and not once every fifteen minutes. Tonight I’m hoping to finish my current book and maybe start another one before I knock out for the night, but don’t want to be up too late as tomorrow will be a busy day.
