So what did I do today ?????

Not much, did not harvest anything from a garden, did not can or freeze anything, or dehydrate, didn't knit a scarf, sweater or mittens.  Didn't cook anything to show a picture, post a recipe (I only have a kitchen cause it came with the house).  Didn't do much of anything really .................. except puppy sit.  Daughter had to take her Aussie pup, Ginger to the vet this morning on her way to work.  So I got to go meet her at work and bring home the puppy for the day.  Since she didn't like her first trip on a leash I had her outside for a bit while I tried to water a few plants, so I put her on a Bella size chain to get her used to containment, as I moved her from place to place. She got the idea to walk along behind me without fighting being attached.

Does my lawn look dry dead?  Ahhh, California summers.  Florida to Louisiana got more rain in the last 24 hours than I get here all year.  Think last year was about 7 inches total for the year, wettest year since I have been here was 18 inches.

P.S. Jealous Dollar is glad puppy has gone home and no longer in my lap.

  1. i was wondering about other pups taking to this interloper. :) i'm not sure i could handle that kind of dry climate. texas is bad enough, but we do get some rains, sometimes. :)

  4. Ginger is a cutie, glad she is taking to the leash. Jeez, I thought we were dry here but you got us beat by a long shot! I don't know, puppy sitting sounds like a full-time job to me! :)

  5. What a cute pup! Moms are handy for pup-sitting.

    How in the world do you manage to garden/grow things with so very little rain? You must have your irrigation system down to a science.

  6. That's one cute puppy. Thanks for your comment about goats, we have fencing that needs to be fixed, but probably wouldn't hold goats anyway. Because I'm older now, I don't want any farm animals. I don't have that much energy to take care of all that needs to be done around here as it is.

  7. Ginger certainly is a pretty girl. I have to say your lawn looks like ours does most summers. We been getting plenty of rain this year though (I've only had to water the garden once!), so everything is green, lush, and happy.
