Saturday Outing…

Saturday I took a CPR class in preparation for starting on child care soon.  It was a long day sitting inside and it almost killed me.  I just don’t sit well.  I hope the teacher didn’t see the quilting doodles I was making.  I feel bad but the only way I can sit from 8 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon is to doodle.  I designed a quilt and doodled a few quilting designs.  What can I say?  I did learn CPR too but please don’t ever give me a chance to practice it in real life.  I am confident that I could do it if needed but I really don’t want to…EVER.

When I got home I realized that I had missed our most beautiful day all winter!!  I refused to let the few hours of daylight pass me by without enjoying it so I took Ruby on a walk.


Ruby hasn’t done much town walking so this was pretty new to her.  It’s been either, cold, snowy or icy since we moved.  I had wondered how she would do..if she’d bark at neighbor dogs…if she’d try to sniff everything…if she’d try to pee and poo on everything.

For our first time out I decided we should try to just walk through the main drag and out of town on the road.  I figured that would be the least amount of strange dogs and just a small exposure to people.

All in all, she did really good.  She pulled on the leash some and that’s not my favorite.  I think next time out we’ll use the harness.  By the time we got home the sun was starting to set.

I sure was glad we got a chance to get out.  It’s not often that early February brings the nice warm temps.  I was out with just a sweatshirt.

I hurried and washed two windows before it got too dark to do that.  AH…what a relief to at least be able to see out two of them.  The next warm day we get, I’ll be at least washing the rest of the main floor windows.

It was such a treat to get to walk Ruby with just a sweat shirt on and  such a treat to be able to wash a few windows….What a great day!!
