I traveled for work a few days and Craig had some dental work done
and we worked on projects around the house -
He used every free moment to give Wendell a good wax and
I made batch after batch of jelly -
It's really not hard to do once you have the berries juiced...
It just takes a little time -
And I decided it was [past] time to burn off three rubbish piles we had up near the garden - I'd love to be able to mow that area and have it debris free. So, with Craig's help we moved a stack of old windows that we'd bought years ago with some project of mine in mind and started a fire in all three piles - turns out just one really caught up so I spent most of the day feeding the stuff from the other two into it - hot nasty work - but I got it done.
This is how it looked at the end of the day.
The only other real close-to-home news I have to share is that
we've put the tiny dog on a strict beauty diet -
We've noticed that these last few weeks her fur has changed dramatically -
I've read that a long-haired chihuahua's coat doesn't fully come in until they're
a couple of years old and so attributed it to that -
But her fur is just not looking healthy...
so she's started on a two week test of food
guaranteed to produce a more lovely coat.
And we've committed to not giving her ANY human foods during this period of time...
although I did see Craig sneak her a couple of pieces of apple this weekend.
[Yes. She eats it.]
