Tonight was full of bad luck…
1) Spilled a bunch of paint on my carpet. Hopefully my carpet vacuum got that off, we’ll see in the morning.
2) While taking a mini pizza out of the oven I dropped it onto the oven door.
3) Came home and the kitchen door hadn’t latched shut… and the wind blew it open… and Zoe had wandered outside. Thank God I found here right outside, on top of the front gate. She got a hug and a special treat for not running off or getting into a fight with the neighborhood cats.
This weekend’s mini-vacation is just what I need right now.
I saw this at IKEA today and couldn’t resist. And it was only like six bucks, too!
Zoe was in the backyard this afternoon while I was staining one of my decks. When I was done I went looking for her, but couldn’t find her. Then I thought “oh no” and went into the front yard. At first I didn’t see here, but I soon found her cowering in the corner of the front “patio”. She was obviously frightened by the cars and trucks that had gone by. I brought her inside without resistence.
It looks like I’m going to have to find a way to keep her in the backyard to prevent this from happening agian. I don’t want her just wandering off, or worse.
The new Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 has an “aerial photo mode”, made for taking pictures through airplane windows. In the manual they even have these notes below the description of the feature: 1) Turn the camera off when taking off or landing and 2) When using the camera, follow all instructions from cabin crew.
