2 more full-grown dogs, a puppy, and 4 kittens (the felines were in loving memory of Fagan).

13 dogs total, and 4 kittens. 

Not a bad month's work.

Last night I let the girls outside to potty; they've been really good about staying in our (admittedly unfenced) yard and so I thought in my idiocy that I could trust them off leash as long as I stayed in the back yard with them.  Well, they both decided to take off...in different directions.  I managed to corral Maggie and get her inside, then spent the next 2 hours chasing Daisy all over the neighborhood.  She'd let me get within 5 feet or so then take off again.  I lost sight of her at dark.  When Boe came home, we went out looking again.  No dice.


We are heartbroken. )

GAH!

Of all the times for the Sewing Muse to strike!  I am holed up in my bedroom with 2 dogs (one of which keeps farting...looking at you, Daisy) and 2 cats (Pretty Pretty Princess is keeping cool by laying in the bathtub).  Handsewing aggravates my carpal tunnel these days, and all of my sewing stuff is downstairs -- in the part of the house without air conditioning.

Gah!

DO NOT WANT

I checked the weather forecast for the next couple of days and nearly fell over.

Al Gore?  You can have your freaking global warming back; we don't want it.

Okay, game plan is to hole up in my bedroom all day with the critters, since three of the five are elderly.  Any panting, heat exhaustion type symptoms and they go into a cool shower with me.

Voila, my plans for the weekend.




Note to self:  The next house will have central air.  This is ridiculous.

Even if the photography is total crap.





Life must be terribly difficult as part of the Powell household:
