Back to work

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Mon Sep 25, 2006 4:07 am

Well, I had my day off and go back to work tomorrow. It's a short day, but the busiest one.
We got up at 6 am and went to the flea market. It was only 40F when we left. I wore two sweatshirts and a windbreaker jacket over a t-shirt. By 8 am I had shed all but the t-shirt and jeans, of course. It was 74F when we left at 2:30 pm. It was sunny with a light breeze. A truly beautiful day. I was lazy and almost went to sleep sitting in the chair. I only helped unpack and then pack up again. We stopped and brought sandwiches coming home. I made sausage and cheese omelets later in the evening. Chance thought they were good. I always make an extra for her if we are having eggs. Eggs help make a dog's coat shiny. Chance has two blankets on a large round, padded doggy bed. They were a real mess. I picked them up and folded them and made them flat. I couldn't see how it would be comfortable to sleep on the mess they were. A bit later I was making some tea and looked out into the laundry room. She was pulling and tugging and making an awful mess out of the blankets. I asked her what she was doing. She looked at me like I must be demented. Couldn't I see that she was making her bed? Dogs!!!
We did well at the flea market. Sold a lot of stuff that we sorted and packed on Thursday. Sold some things we'd had for a bit. Sold a couple large items. Not expensive, but large. Things that took up a lot of space. I bought a table and chairs. I went back and DR asked me what I bought. I told him a table and chairs. He looked at me and asked, "How big?" He was thinking about how he'd get it home. I showed him. The table is about 4 1/2 by 6 inches and the chairs match it in size. I'm going to use it for little bears. He was relieved that he didn't have to make room for a big table and chairs. I also found a little bear to buy. Only paid 50 cents for it but it's from 1959. DR bought a pig for me. It's a redware planter. I thought since it's a pig I should grow a vegetable plant in it. Something to eat. Maybe a herb? I could grow basil in it during the winter or mint. It's smiling and happy looking.
I have to get a picture of a big pot he bought too. It's garden junk. It used to have two handles but one is broken so it only has one. But I like it. It's that redware too. Pretty soon we will have so much in the yard and garden we won't have room for plants. Time for bed. Dooley

50 cents for a 1959 bear? A bargain.

>>> She was pulling and tugging and making an awful mess out of the blankets. <<<

She was probably wrestling them out of the grasp of stub-fingered chess-playing gnomes.

Looking forward to pics Dooley.

Dooley, you work harder on your day off than I do when I am working in my office.

Jan, on the road
