Up at 1AM to potty, then back to bed.

Zim cat slept under my hand all night long. Then he flopped on my thigh to go to sleep. He is a sweet kitty.

At 8AM, got up and made latte for hubby & breakfast sandwich. Dogs got eggs.

Outside, one of the stripe kittys got very high up in a tree and tried to destroy a bird's nest. The bird's dive-bombed him and scared him off.

Cleaned up. Started dishes.

Hubby went outside to mow at 9:30. He mowed until 11:30.

Turned on the A/C by 9AM.

Started laundry. Washed Ben's pillows on his bed.

I went outside to spray vinegar on the weeds. Cleaned up the area where hubby was mowing.

I pushed the wheel barrow into the back yard so I could pick up dog poo.

After I was done, I came inside and took a shower as I was already sweating and stinky.

Lots of POLLEN everywhere. Yuck.

KR called and said that she was coming out and would stop at our place before going up to Round Lake for a hike.

Hot Day Sunday


Sun was already up when I woke up at 5:45AM. I opened the doggy door.

Hubby also got up to pee off the deck. When back to bed until 8AM.

We got up and dressed. Drove to Rathdrum via Hwy 41 because we wanted to see what was left of the accident between a Prius and a Semi on Hwy 41 from Friday.

After we parked the dogs in the shade of the building, we went inside to get groceries at Super One. Then we came back outside, unloaded groceries and took the dogs for a walk at the school.

I was wearing sandals and was COVERED in pollen by the time we finished our walk thru the grass. Wilson had green nasty pollen up his nose.

We took the Dodge to the car wash. Filled up gasoline at the station. Almost got hit by an asshole motorcyclist that was cutting thru the station.

Drove back home. Unloaded groceries into the house.

Hubby finally grilled his pork chops that he had marinating in the fridge for over a week.

Hubby helped pull out the fridge and I cleaned on the sides & top. Lots of dirt & dust. Then I vacuumed behind the refrigerator area. Had to use over a dozen wet washrags to clean all the dirt on the floor under the refrigerator. Gross. Vacuumed up the dust.

Hubby was tired and took a nap.

KR came out at 2PM, she brought food for tomorow and Vodka for the Bloody Marys.

We talked for a while, KR & hubby made Bloody Mary's. We played games at the table until 9PM. KR and Beebo went home at 9PM.

Hubby and I cleaned up then went to bed.

Then I made latte for hubby. Put in alcohol today because he was not going to work!

We sat on the front deck after hubby fed the dogs. I gave Bud his painkillers. He is limping around a lot today.

Watched the kitties play in the woods.

 Hubby went down to the shop to take out a boat, meet a guy to pick up a truck.

Then he left to go down to the Post Falls shop and meet Lane H. They will work in the shop today to get some work done.

More Stress


Last day of work for hubby before Memorial Day week vacation.

Made egg sandwich, latte for hubby. Also made egg ham cups for his snack, gave him a banana to take to work. Also made him a meatloaf sandwich for tonight because he will be going to the shop to work.

Larry decided to quit working. He does not want to work at the shop anymore. Hubby only did the shop in Post Falls so Larry could be there to work it. So all the stuff will have to be moved out and hubby will be dismantling the business.

Hubby went to work.

I did laundry, Did dishes. Cleaned up cat litter.

Gave the dogs some ham pieces, Bud got his painkiller.

It was sunny and warm out today.

Fed Express brought my coffee order from Starbucks and Orchid order for plant pot & plant medium. I repotted the Orchid and gave it a couple ice cubes. Put it out on the deck for some shady light & warmth.

Hubby got home at 8:30PM. He said there was a big wreck on Hwy 41; he was going to Spirit Lake for gasoline, but had to turn around and get gas in Twin Lakes.

He had meatloaf & rice for dinner.

We went to bed at midnight.

Stopped at the dump on the way to the park.

Took them to Gunshooting Road. Bud could only walk a little way until he started limping and breathing too hard. We took him back to the truck and walked farther with the other dogs. We walked in the sun, and it became too hot. We gave the dogs water and walked back to the truck.

Hubby, Bud, Ben, Wilson, Beebo

At home, we unloaded dogs and drove to Spirit Lake for groceries. The parking lot was packed and some stupid woman on a cell phone almost walked in front of our truck when she was exiting the building.
