Hello again, everyone, wherever you are!
It’s been a long and full day. It started somewhere around seven a.m. with a brisk walk outside. I could still feel the effects of the previous day. It seemed bitterly cold but my daughter assured me it was not so cold, it was either my imagination or the result of the cold that had reached my bones the other day.
I had guests today and I went shopping in the morning for the things that I had forgotten the evening before. Not a problem, I still forgot some of them again. Don’t you love it when you prepare a shopping list and once you are in the store you forget to check it? I do, it happens every time.
So my shopping trip ended with only half of the things I needed but it was not so bad, really.
I had to try my housekeeping skills, of course. My housekeeping skills are very close to null, and because of that it took me the remaining part of the morning to clean without noticeable results. That if I don’t count the tiredness and muscular aches.
The visit went well – if one wants to be evasive. Actually, my dear little pug barked a racket and even tried to bite one of the guests, probably because he was the tallest and sturdiest in the room and he felt threatened. It was a real delight to have to take him out all the time so that he’d cool off, meanwhile having to let my daughter try to entertain the guests.
Due to my going out with him all the time, I was never sure on the direction of the conversation and I am pretty sure a few eyebrows rose from time to time when what I was saying had no relation whatsoever to what was actually discussed.
One thing is certain: his behavior tired me much more than the actual work I had done before.
Once my guests left I decided to clean everything fast: I didn’t want to wake up in the morning and see everything lying around. It would have been too depressing.
And after everything was put back to its place, I had a new walk with Rex and then got back to my room. The moment I lay down with my tablet to read, tiredness hit me strongly. I wanted some water at a certain moment and I couldn’t even move.
I’m afraid there will be another walk in the future half an hour as Rex has already drunk four bowls of water and I honestly don’t know if I am able to move.
Anyway, right now, he is extremely upset and he doesn’t even want to look at me. He plays possum. I am sure it will pass. He will forget till tomorrow, won’t he?
Nevertheless, till tomorrow, I will say good bye. Probably, there will be a very full day tomorrow as well. I’ll let you know.

Sometimes I have good ideas... (what do you think?)
Sometimes fascinating guests!
(that for sure!)
Sometimes I have to share some of my frustrations,..
(not too tempting, huh!)
