Stanley has stopped eating again. Evidently, home cooked food isn’t acceptable this morning. Rolling my eyes. I gave him ten minutes, then covered his dish with foil and put it in the refrigerator. I will not offer it to him again until noon. If he turns up his nose again he’ll have to wait until tonight. No bones. No treats.

In addition to refusing to eat, he’s been barking for an hour straight. It’s a little hard to work under those conditions. I tell him to hush and he does for a minute or two, but it starts again.

I think it would be a good idea to wait on another dog right now. Good grief, I can’t even imagine having two of them with “issues”.


I’ve started a major project of organizing my closet. It’s a catchall for all my old electronic stuff, plus things I just can’t bear to donate or throw away. Consequently, there’s entirely too much stuff in there. I bought new shelves to put into the closet, but I haven’t even put those together yet. This may take several months to complete. 🙂 Do you have any lurking projects?


I’m on a mission to make myself like certain veggies. I’ve conquered kale since I figured out to steam it in the Instant Pot. It’s pretty good that way. Now I’m on a mission to get over my dislike of beets. I had beet juice this morning and it wasn’t bad. I’m roasting beets this afternoon. Both kale and beets are really good for you. Luckily I really like arugula and it seems to be the king of greens. Do you naturally like veggies? Are there any that you just won’t eat?


Off to work, since Stanley has decided to stop barking and only growl right now. (It’s probably another dog, a cat, or a squirrel.) Oh, oh, spoke too soon. Sigh.
