Lindy Loo is finished with her time of confinement. (Sing Hal Lay Looooo Ya - do I hear Amen!)
She has returned to the general population. Swede William is glad to have his best buddy back, but... "Are you sure, Lindy Loo? Don't you just want a little Swedish Schmorgasborg?"
No. In no uncertain terms, her answer is no way hose head.
It is so nice to have the household back in the natural order of things.
Swede William is sleeping in the sun. Luciano is barking at me every two seconds to "Turn up the heat!! Now!" Or at least, cover him up again.
Thank goodness we have a little under counter refrigerator in the dog room. Our big refrigerator died on Saturday. Only seven years old ooooooh that gets my goat.
When I was a teenager, I was embarrassed of my parents' refrigerator. It was older than I was, and my friends all had newer, sleeker models in their kitchens. Well, our fridge just wouldn't quit; it lasted until my son was a teenager. In fact, I don't believe it ever died.
Our recently deceased Kenmore is only seven years old. And I think it cost around $1200. Not a top of the line sub zero model, but not the cheapest, either. Seven years!!! The compressor went. It would cost $438 (with labor) to replace the compressor. So much for planned obsolescence. I think it stinks.
Bill and I spoke angry words last night. At each other. This is such a rare occurrence. Twenty-six years of marriage, and I think I can count the times we were angry at each other on one hand. Today we're being extra nice. Sheepish. Quiet. We'll laugh about it soon enough.
I am going to spend the rest of the afternoon outside. It's warmer out than in, and the grass is an out of control swampy jungle. The dogs will bask on the porch furniture in sun while I mow. It's rained for so many days; this sun is like a nice dose of soul morphine. The dogs are addicted.
I know that I will get a hit eventually on one of the gazillion of job applications I've filled out. It never occurred to me that my age and experience would be a liability! How naive am I? Yup, that naive. But this too shall pass.
In the mean time, I have a lovely sunny day to enjoy all the good. There is so much good.
