The second indication was when I tried to eat this beef stew for lunch. These things are awful, but keep my portion size under control. I was spared this time however. I removed the metal lid and replaced it with the plastic one.
50% power for one minute it said. As I walked away I heard a huge BANG!!! Heavens to Betsy!! What happened?? Figuring my microwave just blew up, I ducked down and reached for the door.
The entire inside was covered with beef stew, having exploded with epic consequences. Hmmm, it looked just like Cooper getting ......... oh well. Saved by the microwave. After spending an hour cleaning up the mess, I opted for taquitos.
Between taking the puppies outside and cleaning up all the messes inside, I finished this quilt top. It's so big, I think it will become next year's donation to the Foster Kids for College program. The local guild, which I'm not a member of, donates quilts to the kids just entering college on their own. This one will be perfect.
On one of my forays outside with the puppies, I almost stepped on this dude. It seems in one day my hummingbird feeder found itself empty. As I was going down the steps, I was looking up at bats flying around like crazy. Do you think they could be sipping the nectar?? That was four cups in one day.
Thank goodness I looked down or I would have stepped BAREFOOT on this guy. YIKES!!! Only about an inch long, I've no idea if he bites or not. Good thing there was a full moon and I could see him!!
Although I've had plans, I've been sticking close to home with the sick puppies. That means lots of television and sewing. I'm getting cabin fever like never before, which doesn't bode well for my checkbook.
Today I'll contact my Vet and try to get a prescription for some dog food that won't upset their tummies. Cooper is to the point he won't even eat the canned food.
There were a few spits here and there, but mostly just big puffy clouds passed overhead. That always makes for amazing sunsets!! Believe it or not, the nights are down to a lovely 65 degrees.
Hopefully the full moon passes by with no more ill effects. This morning the sewing group meets again with Chef Patty providing lunch. I'll be running back and forth to check on the puppies. Patty says this too shall pass ... I just hope it passes as quickly as the full moon!!
