I Love You in A Song

I woke up to another BEAUTIFUL morning.

Monday's are Toby's early days so I made him a mushroom and cheese omelet and toast for breakfast before I left for my morning run. I wore too much attire and stripped off my jacket and tied it around my waist while Bo relieved himself on street light post.

At the post, out of nowhere this little scraggly dog runs up to greet us. Not far behind him is his owner with a leash to capture him. The scraggly dog was having no part of being corralled back into his confinement and took off. I would have helped the poor 'ole guy but I was having enough problems keeping Bo controlled in the presence of a free roaming dog. Bo gets super excited around other dogs and gets very hard to control. It's times like these that it doesn't surprise me he ended up in a shelter.

On the way home I passed by the old man's house. Relatives, friends, whoever they are, have cleaned his home out and have a ton of stuff on the side of the road for trash pick-up. Most of it looks like small kitchen appliances, household items, clothes, etc. The dumpster diver in me wanted to rummage through and get out the good stuff before it ended up in the dump, but then I thought it was creepy that I even thought about it.

After I got home I spent the morning watching the Inauguration. I just happened upon it when I turned on the T.V. and got mesmerized by it. It was the first one I had ever watched. I was mostly enthralled with Michele Obama's hairstyle and clothing. Very tasteful.

By the time 3:00pm rolled around and the Inauguration interrupted Dr. Phil I got slightly annoyed with it all. Yes, I did spend most of the day on my Ipad and watching T.V. With only the three of us in a household chores don't take long so I usually have plenty of time on my hands...which can be either a good thing or a bad thing depending on my mood for the day.

Tonight I booked a hotel for a trip to Houston next week. I'm looking forward to our winter mini getaway.

  1. I can't believe you passed up the roadside stuff! I would have gone through it. It will tell a story of his life ...... and may hold some treasures! Creepy? Maybe, but the older I get, the less I care about what others may think of me!
