Wandering Wednesday Words
I've been alone today. All day. In fact, I don't think I talked to anyone after the Chairman and the children went off to work and school. Well actually, I talked to the dog on our walk, but she only grasps her name and the few basic commands. So I have some words floating in my head. Speaking of the dog. She caught a rabbit the other day while I was gone. How do I know? Well all that was left was the head, shoulders and two tiny little paws in the front. The rest was just plain gone. In her belly I reckon. Ick. Have the house nearly to a 'ting' today. We have our turn at the rotation tonight. Special friends coming for a special reason. I love having a turn for many reasons. One not so important one is that it causes me to clean some things I don't ordinarily. Like the toaster oven window. Now really. Do you think anyone is going to do a white-glove test on that? Of course not. But it makes me feel better. I ordered new bedding for our bedroom. Was a good sale on-line. In just a few days the doorbell rings and here they are! I nervously showed them to the Chairman and... he like them! I've been doing more and more on-line purchases. So many companies offer free shipping. You can price-shop. I found a new griddle that we really needed for $20 less than I could in a local store. Plus I could read lots of reviews to know which one was best (making the Chairman very, very proud of me). And... we like it! I wish we could hang sheets here. You see this neighborhood isn't all that keen on fences. Or clotheslines. So I've been doing it makeshift in the screen porch. Do we look like rednecks? You bet! But the sheets sure smell dandy. Just re-reading what I wrote is making my eyes glaze over. So if I'm bored, well certainly all you loyal readers are too. Besides, the groan of the bus engine will soon be here. And so this is enough of the wandering words. On a Wednesday.
