It’s been a quiet day.
I woke at 7:00 AM, unable to stay asleep. The deck was a bit on the chilly side but quite comfortable. By 8:00 AM, the dogs and I had finished breakfast and I returned to bed until 11:00 AM to slay the weight of emotional fatigue
I made a pasta salad after finally cleaning the kitchen and placing the dishes in the dish washer.
After lunch I cleaned out Clyde’s food tank, took the litter bag to the dumpster, cleaned the litter pan, and finally forced myself to take down the crate and remove it back to the basement.
The sight of the empty crate was difficult. Clyde loved his crate, and it was just one day short of a week that he’d gotten to experience it.
Even with the three dogs and a teenage son, there’s a dog of loneliness with my cute, funny, personality-plus, plus-size Clyde.
Seven months of pure joy and amusement… I do miss this little fellow deeply.
And on with the day. It’s just now 3:00 PM, and unlike my friend, Jeff Carter, in St. Louis, I’ve barely scratched this day. Jeff put in an exhaustive full day alone between 7:00-10:00 AM. Oy!
I am planning on taking in a movie at The Neon and maybe grab a bite downtown if it’s not too busy.
