Well I will always wonder where time has gone. Its already the 13th of June! WoW
I will start by saying that I must of lost my mind when I brought home a puppy! LOL But no seriously, lost my mind. She was fun to have, well lets be more clear, there’s nothing like puppy antics to keep you laughing. She was a clown for sure. However, there was quite a bit of Tasmanian-devil in her too. The more comfortable she got, the more in control she became with Chika. No one could love Chika without her trying to attack Chika in the face and growling at us for scolding her. Chika was not allowed to ever walk to the door, it was all a control issue over us and Chika. The more I tried to retrain her little, wild mind, the more set in she got. I just wasn’t up for a battle with a 4 month old puppy. So, I started having thoughts of where I could go to see if anyone was looking for a really, smart heeler. I would never just give her to anyone and the pound was out!! Even though she was a heeler/border mix, I am afraid the dominant heeler gene out numbered the docile border gene. But she got the smarts of both!! My husband was helping, she seemed to take better direction from him, perhaps the male part of it helped. But he was really exhausted from dealing with her. We had a fence contractor come out to the house to give us a bid on finishing the fence, (that’s another long story, it includes a big headache! LOL) he saw Chika on the deck and commented on how beautiful she was. Then he said I am looking for a heeler, we lost our last one to old age. The hair on the back of my neck stood up. I said I have a 4 month old heeler in the house taking a nap. Last of the story is a short one, we delivered her to him a couple days later. Update. she couldn’t be happier being the single dog t that families house. He has horses in Bisbee, about 45 minutes east and can’t wait till she is old enough to ride along with them. He can’t believe how smart she is, he has always had heelers but he claims she the smartest, might be the border mix coming out there. She can jump up on the patio table and howls to be let in when shes done outside. LOL I am so happy Jenny found a loving home, not that we weren’t loving, we were just also exhausted and extremely confused to why we ever thought a puppy would be a good idea. LOL so it all ends well. And our fence will be done tomorrow. Yeah!!!
So that took up some of the time, the rest has been watering, swimming, enjoying the nice hot weather. We also had our 10th anniversary thrown in there. Been a busy 10 days.
I have been stock piling talavera tiles for another project, but after speaking with the tile guys I am not going to tile the step backs. Way to much work to possible loose it all to the weather. So I keep looking around my kitchen wondering what would like to be tiled. LOL
My husband has been up early so he can finish his last brick project until the weather cools down, we now have a wonderful walk way all the way out to the gazebos sidewalk and from the front gate to the deck. Sure beats walking in the rocks and twisting your joints. Our knees couldn’t be happier.
I have managed to keep the 30ish pounds I lost off. I am thinking its time to get back on that wagon and loose another 30#’s. Wrapping my head around it and off I go.
Not much else to talk about, I have the itch to go for a road trip, will probably head to Santa Rosa in August, Maybe I will go to Raleigh and see my sister. My husband has no desire to travel anymore so, I am pretty sure it will be a solo trip. Okay by me. LOL
hope everyone is having a great summer!
