It nice to try different things. I am ignoring my pumpkins. I try not to give them too much attention. I am afraid I am going to jinx them. I sort of glace at them and I have seen a few pumpkins. I know I have one vine with a bunch of white Jill be Littles. I have some small orange pumpkins. But other than that, I am not looking. I want to be surprised. I know if I look too close, I might want to pick them. I am going to ignore them until the end of September and then I hope I am pleasantly surprised.
One of the dogs next door continues to get out every day. He is a very dumb dog. Not a mean one, just a lumbering kind of dog. He is a mix breed of some kind and just gal-oops around. He is a puppy really. When you look at him you can see that he is missing not just one taco from the combination plate but the whole plate and the kitchen. I really don't want to complain any more to these people so I decided I would just ignore him. So when I am out walking he just runs ahead of me like he is my dog. Sasha stays in the yard. She gets so embarrassed when he comes up to ravage her, If she didn't have a furry face it would be beet red. She doesn't seem to mind not being out with me and staying behind. He doesn't seem to notice my chickens or cats. He did run after some doves that were eating and stood there looking puzzled when they flew off.
There is so much going on in the world, that I really try to live at peace with all men as it lies with me.
I would like to be nice all of the time. Sometimes I can. It just takes too much energy to be unhappy or upset. I just don't have that energy anymore. Last week, I was able to walk 14-16 thousand steps everyday.
I finally hit that place where It feels so good to be getting that kind of exercise. I try to get 10,000 in the morning before nine. That helps my steps the rest of the day. It nice to see my progress. I got my badge for walking all of New Zealand. 900 Miles.
Its time to go get my next dot. I hope you have delightful day. I have already finished my work outside, so I will be inside today except for taking care of my poor hens. I lost one yesterday. It broke my heart. She laid her egg and then keeled over from the heat. She was one of my new little girls. I tried to save her by putting her feet in water and all of that but she just closed her eyes and was gone. Her name was Red. I know I am inventive right? So I will be spending lots more time outside with them during this next heat wave. I will never be good at loosing animals. Even if they are just chickens.
Bye for now, thank you for stopping by today.
