It's a dog!

Here's Clyde, who had no trouble settling in and making himself at home!  Clyde's about two, and a rescue from Hurricane Harvey.  He is just the sweetest.

It turns out that Clyde is a little higher-energy than projected, and really really really wants to do something with somebody all the time.  Which was his schedule this weekend.  But today, The Man went to work, so we are having some sads.  This has led me to suggest something I never thought I would, that maybe we need another dog to keep this dog company?   We already had a resident dog, the last time we got a younger dog; they entertained one another.

My husband is totally smitten, and he no longer has a dog-shaped hole in his life.

What's the haps with you?

Lurching toward fall

The end of summer is officially this Friday!  It pretty much feels over already, since school's back almost everywhere.

Mattress and rug for the room formerly known as daughter's are arriving today.  The dead car is finally being towed away today -- it was supposed to be Friday, but the tow truck needed its own tow truck.

My husband couldn't find his wallet this morning.  He discovered that he had accidentally run it through the washing machine, which I think is pretty Old Skool.

What's happening at your place?

Settling into Routine Edition

We have a new routine, starting up this week, for the new school year. Today was E's first piano lesson (with a group of tiny friends), taught by my friend. Tomorrow is her first real day of her second year of preschool, where she'll be going for three afternoons a week (as opposed to two shorter mornings, as she did last year). Add to that Mr. Q's night class (starting tomorrow), two more batches of play dough to make before tomorrow, and a lot of food prep (as we process this year's garden, and freeze meals for the busy days), this week is going to be a bit exhausting for the Q family.

Outside of my little bubble, we watch anxiously to see what damage comes of this latest awful hurricane. At the same time, folks like esperanza and her church help with the cleanup effort from the last one.

With your big and small whines and anti-whines, how are you all doing?

September whines, antiwhines, and misc.

Happy Labor Day to U.S. pixies!   We're having my son and his sweetie over for dinner (BBQ, corn, salad), and that's about it.

My sweetie is repainting the accent walls of the room formerly daughter's.  I'm supposed to go back to rug shopping, ugh, and pick one.

The temps around here are dropping from "broil" to a mere "swelter," so that's good.

What's up with you?
