I'd Be Lost Without My Washing Machine

May 25, 2012

Good morning.  The sun is hiding behind some clouds at the moment, but it's still quite nice outside.  Today the temps will be in the mid 70's with maybe a sprinkle or two.  After I finish up a bit of laundry (scatter rugs, what else?  Thank goodness for my washer.), I think Tootsie and I will go for a ride to the park. 

I'm also looking into adult  trikes again.  I wanted to get one for myself a few years ago, but my brother said it would look foolish.  Well guess what?  I don't care how foolish it looks.  That third wheel will allow me to get out an go for bike rides.  There's even a basket on the back for Tootsie to ride in.  Oh, be still my heart!

I want to look around to see if anyone near by carries the bike.  I would like to try it out before I buy one.  Walmart has it, but so far only on line.  I also want to see if a basket could go on the front too.  Tootsie would be more comfortable if she could sit in the front  This just seems like a fun way to get some exercise and fresh air.

Here's a photo that I just have to share with you.  Yesterday at work, the Mrs asked me to take this photo.  We were in the living room, and she was looking at one of the windows.  She wanted me to take the photo because it was such a pretty view.  And it is!  As you can see, the window is closed, and there is a dark screen on the outside of it, but the photo still came out quite good.

The Mrs' Iris are blooming, so I also got a few shots of those.  These are really gorgeous.  They are purple but the top petals look almost blue.  While I was outside with the camera, I also got some new bee shots.

I've taken a bag of chicken breasts out of the freezer for our supper tonight.  When Joe gets home from work, I will give him the chicken and the shake and bake and he will cook it up.  Then we share it.  Tootsie hasn't been eating so good so tonight she can pig out!

At the moment, Tootsie is wandering around like a little lost soul.  She's trying to find one of her treats that she has hidden, and she's not having much luck.  Considering that she can't see,  this little girl gets around fabulously.  We have a lot to learn from our furry friends.

Now it's time for me to stuff this adorable little body into some clothes and do a few things around here.  Then it's playtime for Tootsie and me!  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

The Iris and Rhododendron are just beautiful. Pretty soon you are going to have to give your Mrs. her own camera! She had a great suggestion.

Such a bike is a great idea. You even can can one electrical! And sure that you can have a basket in front for Tootsie. You may try some bike selling shops in your area to call them and ask if they have such a bike and perhaps they will let you try one.
Have a great day!

The bike looks like fun - and very safe. I don't know if Baxter would enjoy bike rides or not....I'm guessing not.
