Missing the Mark

Everyone who knows me knows I have two dogs, Marci (the mama) and Jitter Joe (her son). She is getting old now~ she is 13 and he is 11.

Marci and Jitter Joe on their bed. I put pillows around the room in front of door facings and furniture to protect Jitter from hitting something when he has a spell.

My blog today is about cleaning carpets and rugs. I started the day off with the Bingo singers at the Nursing Home. I had planned to come home and spend the day cleaning carpets. I have potty pads down all over the house in case anyone has an accident. (oh and they do!) Jitter is careful to go mark every single clean pad as soon as it goes down. That is about 9 pads each with one little round yellow spot. Marci is careful too, she stands with her front feet on the edge of the potty pad and makes sure she doesn’t get any pee on it, it goes on the floor. Marci does go to the back door when she needs to go out but lately she just walks to the back of the car and goes there in the garage. Jitter goes outside with her and will walk around for a long time, then come in and use the potty pad, he uses the cleanest not  the dirty ones. So back to the carpet cleaning job this morning.

 I started with the round rug under the dinning table, I took it outside on the driveway and started shampooing. It was hot out there since it was around noon. Then the man drove up to put a new tire on my lawn mower so by the time I could go back with my job it was blazing hot and my shade was gone. As of now, I only have one rug done and the whole rest of the  house left. I will try to get it done tomorrow and get ready for Sunday company dinner. One more thing, I don’t know why they leave that little wing tip on chicken wings, I have to cut them off (34 of them) and get everything ready for Buffalo Chicken Wings. It took me an hour and I was  tired but it had to be done. I could show you  the Chicken Wings but they aren’t cooked. No maybe you would rather see the exciting thing for me this week~ I found two nice figs on the tree I panted in February. It has been a dream of mine to grow a fig tree, I have tried every few years but not one fig until now. 

Beautiful figs, these came from the same kind of tree Adam and Eve covered themselves with when they were in thrown out of the Garden of Eden.

  1. Tudor, my little king of a Shih Tzu, uses pee pads as your babies do! Only when he wants 6 Cheerios as a treat will be go outside! I got a good chuckle out of this account.
    If you see Cindy Olsak Hanks in town as her about the fig tree at the old Gunn place that the Olsaks own. For several years, she has been bringing me the most beautiful figs, and I preserve them as Grandma did. No strawberry jello to contaminate by authentic fig preserves. Now, if I could only learn to make biscuits as she did!
