September 22nd – still TryingπŸ‘

Still working at getting this wee piece of my mind’ to get perked up and past the fall funk I have been in. To this end, I have put together a few of our better moments from the past couple of days. 😁

We had Mark and Dom over for supper last night. That definitely brought some life to our evening. πŸ’ž
We took Kat to the groomers today. She came home looking and smelling fall fresh!
Dan went out and bought a new fire extinguisher for the kitchen. Nothin’ says lovin’ like up to date fire protection. πŸ’—

I forgot to take a photo but Dan and I went to the Canadian Brew Pub for lunch today while Kat was at the groomers. We both had the Buffalo Chicken sandwich special with fresh hot fries and slightly wierd gravy. Not Brandon gravy wierd, but it did taste quite sagey. πŸ€” The sandwich and fries were amazing!

Our flowers are few and far between but there are a few blossoms left to appreciate.
These petunias are such a dark, rich color. 😊

I feel better just looking at these photos! I hope you enjoy them as well. That is all I have for today!

Take care and have a great rest of the day! πŸ’ž

Sense of Accomplishment

Some days you can feel a major sense of accomplishment by investing a seemingly small amount of time and effort. Other days, like today, that sense of accomplishment is just not there.

Lately we have made a few adjustments in our life. One of the adjustments we have made was to give up Kat’s groomer (since they were closed for Covid-19 reasons) and invest in a set of pet clippers.

Grooming tools

Dan has been grooming Kat but since he is on his fifth shift in a row tonight and Kat was looking pretty straggly, I decided to step up to the challenge.

Straggly Kat

I got out everything I would need, including all of our grooming equipment, a fold up metal table, a vinyl tablecloth and of course – Kat.

For two hours, I wrestled with Kat while she did her best to avoid clippers, combs and the like. She fell off the table three times – fortunately onto my lap each time.

By the time I ‘finished’, there was a goodly amount of fur to show for my efforts.

Groomed Kat – sort of πŸ™„

At least I got her ears trimmed! Maybe we will both feel like continuing the battle after a walk. 🌞
