Cats and Dogs
I got to the house after our walk yesterday and Ebony was in the middle of room. Zoey ran up, sniffed her and took off to smell something else. You should have seen this cat, it was so funny. You have all seen a cat stalking something.....extreme slow motion. That is what the cat did. Very slowly crouching down low she made her way across the room to under the table, slowly slowly probably thinking to herself....OK, make no sudden moves, no moves that will make that huge dog want to chase me. The second Zoey wasn't looking Ebony ripped off up the stairs and into the back bedroom closet where she stayed the entire time Zoey was there. Now how are they suppose to get along and get to know each other that way, LOL. Finally after about 4 hours I brought Zoey home. I was afraid the cat would have a burst bladder or worse yet use the closet. So all in all not to bad. I guess I don't have to worry about Zoey. She never really settled down at my MIL's though. Maybe today will be better.
Our supper was superb last night. Rick grilled some steaks and I made baked sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts with sauted pecan's on top. We had a delicious bread and apple pie for dessert though no one ate the pie as we were stuffed.
My MIL always say we cook too gourmet for her. What was gourmet about that? Although a good cook my MIL always only used salt and pepper as spices and usually make a roast, potatoes, gravy and a vegetable. She would boil the veggies to within an inch of their life. I like mine crisper and steamed. Never was fond of gravy and there is a way to make pork roast without having it dry as shoe leather. Salt....well occasionally. My MIL salts her salt. My MIL does however make the worlds best apple pie. I judge everyone by hers.
Rick gave me the sweetest card. We don't exchange gifts, haven't for years. Seems silly when we do it all year when we find something we think the other will like. More spontaneous and fun that way.
I forgot to set clocks back. Rick always did that. Usually I worked until they changed the date and would have to either work an extra hour, boo, or work one less. For some reason 13 1/2 hours was a killer. Its amazing what a difference one more hours makes.
Well, time to get off my butt and get the dog walked before we go to my MIL's. Still haven't heard from the BIL in weeks. Peace and quiet. We are having company at my MIL's so I am going to do some cleaning. It usually looks good but I have to vacuum and dust. I have the beds ready and I want to clean the upstairs bathroom. Hope everyone has a great day.
