It's been a hectic week or two, so I went back to read what I've missed. Kate, in an earlier post you mentioned your garlic being up. DH is making meatballs this afternoon, and while chopping garlic, he said, "I wonder when garlic season is?" I told him I remembered seeing a bunch of garlic hanging to dry in a friend's garage years ago, but I couldn't remember what season it was. So, when you say your garlic is up, do you mean just starting to grow or ready to harvest? We eat a ton of garlic, but I admit that I have no idea how it's grown or when it's picked, etc. All I know is that I love it!
I was called to jury duty last week and was selected for the trial. I admit I was not happy -- in the past I've been lucky to be dismissed because the case was canceled or settled out of court. This ended up being two full days in court, so I got very behind at work AND I lost two days of pay. I went into work yesterday to try to catch up a bit, but I'll have to work some extra hours this week.
I'm so glad to hear that Mozey is feeling well enough to do some zoomies and play frisbee tug! And what a good boy Ronnie is for doing well off lead on the beach. Yikes -- Ruby would head straight for the water and never look back!
Speaking of water, we had dinner with friends last weekend, and they've got an adorable pittie mix named Tank. They moved to a new house with a huge yard, so he was having a blast playing fetch with the Chuck-It before we had dinner. His feet were a muddy mess, and our friend went to get a towel before we headed inside. I said, "Do you need a pail of water to rinse his paws?" He said, "Nope, he'll use the kiddie pool." Sure enough, Tank walked over to the kiddie pool, took several steps in it to rinse his feet, then went to the door to have them dried. Talk about an awesome thing to teach your dog to do!
Doug, your comment about your son giving up wine and beer but now being addicted to self-help books cracked me up. Joking aside, I've known a couple people who've substituted one addiction for another (albeit more healthy) one. For example, a former coworker was a heavy drinker, but then became obsessed with exercise after he cleaned up his drinking issue. He practically lived at the gym, but he definitely was more trim and healthy and feeling well.
Happy first day of spring -- I'm sorry to hear some snow is still making appearances for you guys, Doug and Kate. We've got rain today, but it's warm. We had two days this week of sun and high 60's -- one day I actually went without a coat in the afternoon!
