It's Been A While

Well, I haven't posted in a while. I've been watching season 1 of the tv show Leverage. The first season is very good with quirky characters, a lot of humor, and good stories that make you think of the A Team. But season 2, which is airing on TNT on Wednesday nights, is different. The characters aren't as quirky. This week's episode, the Order 23 Job, was all about the con and didn't have very many character moments. I hope this isn't how the rest of the season will be. Some people say that as the show progresses, the characters will change and blah, blah. But, comparing it to the A-Team, well Murdock never got fully sane. He still did crazy stuff. But I think in Leverage they are trying to turn Parker sane and they shouldn't do that.

Anyway, on to more news. The other night I was walking Winnie and PJ and PJ saw something new and decided to sniff it. It was a black snake. A big one. So, after I screamed, I pulled Winnie and PJ back in the house and called Mom to have her send Dad up here to kill it. By the time dad got here, it had disappeared.

I'm officially on vacation now. I have all next week off and I'm going on a trip. I'm going to go to the Wilds, a safari type place in Ohio and then I'm going to the Bridgestone Invitational golf tournament. Dad will be dogsitting for me. I hope Winnie and PJ won't gain 5 pounds next week.

I haven't bought anything from QVC in a couple of weeks! Yay!! I need to stop shopping there.

Too Short of a Weekend

I am spoiled with having days off. I now expect long weekends. LOL.

There was a little snake by my car in the driveway Friday evening. I didn't bother it and it was gone Saturday morning. It came back Saturday evening and this morning it was still by my car in the exact same spot. It hadn't moved. So, I concluded it was dead. I left it there until just a little bit ago and then carried it off. Even though it was dead and I was the one moving it, it still gave me the willies. I hate snakes.

Winnie smacked her head good today on the keyboard tray of mom's computer desk. She seems to be okay.

I gave Winnie and PJ a bath today.

I'm looking forward to my vacation. It comes up in about three weeks. I'm going to the golf tournament in Akron and probably to the Wilds. It's a wildlife conservation place in Ohio.

I made homemade salsa yesterday. It was pretty good but I need to work on it. I don't want to use that powdered salsa mix that I used yesterday. I should be able to achieve the same flavors without the powder and the msg.

QVC hosts should not talk with their mouths full. It's disgusting. I'm glad I've already had supper.

Late Post

I missed my weekend post. So, here it is. I got most of the three main goals I had completed over the weekend. I dyed my hair. I washed my car. And I mowed most of the yard. Even with no rain for a couple of days, the grass caked up inside the mower and I had to keep cleaning it out. So, I eventually gave up. It was wearing me out.

I bought a few things from qvc. But the good news is, I'm watching other stuff right now and not qvc.

Winnie and PJ had a few fleas so I had to bath them yesterday. Then today, I vacuumed the house, washed their bedding and put borax in the carpet. I got some flea drops on PJ but Winnie, of course, tried to bite. So, she doesn't get any extra help with the fleas. Not that I think those flea drops do any good. I don't see any real difference.

Dad tried to give me the neighbor's cat yesterday but he coudn't get the cat in my carrier. Tonight, mom told me that their cat, Ralph, is laying in the carrier instead.

My container garden apparently didn't get enough water Saturday and Sunday even though we had rain. I looked at the containers tonight and the plants were wilting. So, I think I'll water them in the morning and again tomorrow night to give them extra water. I already watered them this evening.
