She is the newest member of our little family.  Last Friday Walt made the decision to take in another dog. She is a three month old pit bull mix. She is a sweet little girl but is really tiring Buddy out. Walt's friend called Friday afternoon and said he knew a guy that was trying to "get rid" of a puppy as he was moving to Tennessee and wasn't going to take the dog with him. I wasn't sure about getting another dog so soon after losing Pongo. I told Walt the decision was entirely up to him as to whether or not the puppy came to live with us. At first he said no. Then a few minutes later I heard him on the phone talking to his friend as he was changing into his jeans to go get the dog. About half an hour later he came back with Girl. She is very smart, and even though she was kept tied up outside most of her short life she was housebroken and will ask to go outdoors. The only drawback that I can see is that she is full of energy and wants to play all the time. Buddy is at least 10 years old and can't play as long as she can, so we have to give him nap breaks. When she get gets older I'll taker her to an obedience class, I think she'll do well. She is such a little sweetheart. I still miss my sweet Pongo, can't believe it's been almost two months since he went to the Rainbow Bridge.

Just a few comments

I was going to post a few more examples of my nail art but the batteries in my camera are dead. I'll put them in to charge and try to get the pictures posted tomorrow. I might even get a couple more painted. I have the polish on the nails, but still need to add the "art".

I went to Dillard's yesterday and picked up a new lipstick, MAC's "Lickable" cremesheen. The website says it's a "bright clean blue pink", but I think it's a gorgeous shade of fuchsia. I'll wear it with a MAC Dazzleglass creme "My Favourite Pink". I wish I could take a pic so you could see how beautiful these two colors are separately and together. I forgot to get a lip liner, I'll try to go back next week, or maybe order one off the MAC site. I also got a tube of prep and prime with a 50 spf sunblock. I already use Sanitas sunblock, so next time I think I'll get the prep and prime brightening serum.

I don't enjoy shopping the way I used to. I barely walk into a store when I begin to get muscle spasms and pain in my lower back. Walt and I used to go shopping, walking the malls and stores, tiny shops down town, antique stores, etc. And I also now have a strained deltoid muscle, and I'll be getting physical therapy next week. The muscle relaxer and pain meds put me to sleep so I can only take them at night. I feel bad for Walt because he doesn't like to go shopping by himself. He has stepped up and is doing most of the house cleaning, and what he doesn't do, won't matter until I can start cleaning again. I mean, seriously, who is going to notice if the top of the doors and the light switches have been cleaned in the last week. Yes, I'm obsessive compulsive when it comes to cleaning. Everything, and I mean everything in the house has to be cleaned. The outside not so much, I used to wash outside windows every month, but it's been probably 8-10 months since they have been cleaned. And gracious the world hasn't stopped turning and I don't really care if people are talking about me. LOL I remember my Mom working so hard in the house to keep it clean and tidy. She didn't get to enjoy herself as much as she could have. She was so afraid that someone would come to visit and the house wouldn't be "spic and span" and they would talk about her. Seriously. But it wouldn't have mattered because everyone loved my Mom, I don't ever think I heard anyone say anything bad about her. I have a need to keep a tidy house because it is small and I have "a lot of things" as Walt puts it. So everything must be in it's place, and it doesn't take much for the house to look cluttered. He goes so far as to "suggest" that we have a yard sale. Are you kidding me? When I'm dead and gone, and won't have to watch someone pick over my belongings like they are castoffs, my Vermont Teddy Bears, my dolls, my books, stuffed animals, magazines, thanks, I'll just keep the house tidy! LOL

Yesterday we went to the Sunset Grill and ate lunch. The weather was beautiful. It won't be long before it will be too hot to sit out and enjoy a lunch or dinner.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
