Busy Day, Unhappy Pup

Turns out Hava did have a small fracture of her jaw as well as it being dis-located. All is well, except she is frustrated with the muzzle that has to stay on for two weeks. She dislikes having to drink her dinner and she’s tired and frustrated.

Brad was busy today, up at 6:00 am, off to the farm to pick up Miss Sarah and the pup and get her to the vet by 7:30, then take Miss Sarah back to the farm, grab some breakfast, and then he was at the church until about 11:30 for VBS. He was home by noon and we had lunch, then went back to the farm to get Miss Sarah and pick Hava up at the vet, take both of them back to the farm, stop for smoothies at the coffee shop, then pick up our grocery order from Albertson’s.

We got everything unloaded and barely sat down and the phone rang. It was the guy from the propane company. He was just a couple of miles away finishing up a job and wanted to stop by and see where we needed the propane tank. It was 102° outside and I wasn’t out there very long after he arrived. There are storms in Oklahoma so the humidity is rising, which makes it worse for the heat index.

So, we spent over $1,200 on the puppy with three vet visits this week and we got the bid for the 250 gal propane tank and installation…$1,800. Tomorrow we contact the electrician about scheduling the Generac 2400 installation and I have conveniently forgotten what that is going to cost.

At this point all I want to do is knit, watch Dr. Pol, and have a large margarita…not necessarily in that order. It’s finally below 100° outside. We’ve got the A/C running constantly and four ceiling fans running as well as a box fan in the living room. The last time I looked the thermostat read 75° in the house. The living room is always a bit warmer than the rest of the house and is the room I spend the most time in! Sheesh!

Oh, well. This too shall pass. On the plus side, Hava will be just fine and we won’t have to worry about being without power again when the generator and propane tank are installed.

Time for that margarita. Have a peaceful Wednesday evening, ya’ll. God bless.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
