No pup yet. The SPCA sent me a nice letter though telling me not to worry, that they don't euthanize any dogs unless there are extreme circumstances. I had mentioned that we were planning on adopting in October and they said that Genie may or may not have been adopted by then but not to worry, there are always new strays coming in. Anyway, Serge and I both have to agree on the new member of the family and I think he wants to get something a little smaller. (Actually he doesn't really even want another dog, but he's bending to my will)
I was at the market the other day and they had these big baskets of peaches for three bucks. Beautiful fuzzy ripe peaches. So I grabbed a basket and said to myself that I would make peach cobbler. I looked on the internet for an easy recipe (meaning I already had all the required ingredients) and found this one. I had to learn how to peel a peach (you blanche them first) which was the most time consuming part. God it came out good. Then, even though I have been on a strict no ice cream diet, I had to get some because you can't eat peach cobbler without it. Then because the half gallon size was the same price as the pint size (a weird sale) I got the big tub. Now the cobbler's nearly gone and I've got all this ice cream left. I'd make another cobbler, but I can't be trusted around it as I inevitably eat a 1500 calorie serving once I start.
Our upstairs tenant is missing in action. I still hear her cat playing once in a while but she's been gone since at least Friday when we called about her bounced rent check. Haven't seen nor heard from her. I keep thinking the worst (she's another deadbeat like nude dancer) but Serge keeps making excuses for her like she's probably vacationing in Cuba or camping in the mountains or something. That made me laugh, there's no way that girl is a camping girl. I find two things strange here. One, that you wouldn't check your messages for 5 days. Two, and if you did check your messages in the last five days, why no call back to respond to the bounced rent check situation? The only adjectives I can come up with here are negative. Flakey, irresponsible, clueless. Still, I hope Serge is right and she's just been off the grid for a week. (But what about the cat all alone up there?)
Finally today, and you better get on this now because spouse is going to be none too happy about it, here he is "dancing" to a song he LOVES, although I didn't know to what extent until I caught him turning it up and writhing to it.
