My dad’s weather wizards have predicted the first snow of the season for us starting tomorrow. ‘They’ claim we may get 1″- 3″ of snow tomorrow and 3″ – 7″ over the night on Thursday. I am not bothered … now that Randy’s heart is in full functioning order and that ‘we’ have a tractor!
Speaking of snow … The Hoodoo’s received their first dusting of snow the middle of October. It had all disappeared by the end of the day, though.
I have never been good at most video games and newer games are getting harder for me to play and make any headway. When a supposedly fun activity becomes an exercise in futility, it is time to make some changes. I had a heart to heart talk with myself and came to the conclusion that my video game playing days are over. Well, not completely over. While I donated my Playstations and WiiU console, games and accessories, Randy convinced me to keep my Wii console and games. Plus, I have plenty of games on my iPad to play.
I did have to buy a new GameCube controller for the Wii. Yes, I do have a few ancient, but fun, Gamecube games. I could be wrong, but I don’t think the after-market controller I bought was manufactured in the United States.
In that heart to heart conversation that I mentioned above, I decided that I wanted to get back to painting. I bought some supplies and set up a painting area on the dining room table of the 5th-wheel. I do have to relocate Randy out of his space when I want to set up my area and do some painting, but that’s okay with him. He spends most of his time in his shop, anyway.
And now … the dogs …
I accidentally left a paper towel on the couch and Otis snagged it for his very own. He just loves to tear up paper. This is his “I ain’t hiding nothin’ mom!” look.
I may have taken the paper towel away from him before he shredded it up, but all was made better when I brought home a stick. I found it on my morning walk and I knew Otis would love it. I do have to say that cleaning up paper towel shreds would have been a lot easer than cleaning up the wood slivers.
Otis thinks he needs his own Twitter, Facebook and Instagram account.
While it has been cold overnight, we are managing to get a few hours of sunny and warm weather in. Roxy is loving soaking up the warm fall sunshine. Randy and I don’t want to tell her that the sun is going to disappear for a while.
After Roxy’s sun soak, she comes inside and jumps into the recliner. She curls herself up into a pretzel to take a nap.
After her nap, she takes her bone up to her bed in the shop to help Randy do garage stuff.
It is tough being a dog at our house.
