September Saturday

We took Amber–our standard poodle–to the “Doggie Day Spa” at MSU where the pre-vet students were bathing and toenail trimming dogs for $10.  Amber wasn’t too happy to be led off to the baths by the students.

Then we drove to Paducah to see about some warranty work on D19’s laptop.  BestBuy’s geek squad guy had good advice and we were able to turn around and drive home again.

Then Scott sold another pipe!  And made the phone calls needed to get Dell to send us a new charger for D19’s laptop whilst I worked on a website.

Then we mailed off the pipe and took Amber for a walk at the park and then (best of all) took her to the dog park – a new feature at the park!  It’s an enclosure where people can let their dogs play together off leash.    Scott’s been taking Amber there every evening after their walk and I wanted to get in on the fun today.  Six or seven of the pre-vet students were there with a bunch of their dogs and they recognized Amber (she was still wearing the neckerchief from the day spa).  They told us they had bathed 160 dogs.

Scott grilled salmon for us and steak for D19 when we got home.  Yummy dinner!  After dinner I watched “Once” with D19; it’s one of his favorite movies.

I’m tired out!

About katiekind

Enjoying the second half of life. I have three sons who are the apples of my eye and a wonderful husband of 35 years--those are the important things. Long ago, out of the blue, I became a Christian. It was something I never planned on, but what joy it has been. I do website development and I like to read and garden and paint and I love beauty and truth.
