As sticky and humid as it was yesterday, it is chilly and damp feeling today. It isn't really cold, but it is a moist 55 and breezy. Kinda goes through you when you are out in it. Boy, from one extreme to the other, I guess! It's supposed to go into the 30s tonight, then tomorrow back up to 70!! Good grief!
I'll be here tomorrow and Wednesday, then Thursday morning I'm on the road again. I'll drive somewhere between Little Rock and Memphis by tomorrow night and find a motel for me and the "kids." On Friday I'll be arriving in the Atlanta area to see my nephew and his wife, and on Saturday, I get to meet Dawn!! I'll be calling her tomorrow or Wednesday to firm up our plans (Hear that, Dawn?!?!).
I have to go to a PetSmart tomorrow for treats and to a vet for their prescription canned dog food to get us through until we reach Florida on 11/19. When we are on the road, they get treated with larger amount of the canned food because it is easier for us all. However, carrying enough for the whole trip was not feasible, thus purchases in route are necessary. Well, that's not completely accurate ... I could have carried a large amount of it in the bed of the truck, of course, but I'd have to take it out every night so it wouldn't sprout legs and walk away, so it seemed smarter to do it this way. And I'm considering getting a bed like Millie's that Ali loves dearly. He even sneaks out of my room at night and if she leaves the bed, he is in it! Thinking perhaps he needs his own. :) Not that he doesn't have beds in the car and at home, but he really loves that particular one. We'll see how much it costs, then decide!!
I bought some salmon filets today and Scott is going to cook them on the grill tonight. I love grilled salmon! Kylee just recently tasted it and she likes it, too, so it is a win/win. She is a picky eater, therefore every food added to her list of acceptable gustatory intake is helpful. I used to take her out, and she would order chicken strips because chicken was about the only meat she would eat. When they came, she would carefully peal off all the breading, not leaving a trace of it, then eat. So much trouble, but she didn't expect anyone else to do it for her! She now has a larger array in her diet, but new foods come into acceptance slowly.
PS later in the day - When Scott got home I found out that the dog bed was from Sam's and was reasonable, so we ran there. Ali loves his new bed!! Maybe he will quit stealing into Millie's bed when she isn't there! I'll get a picture of him later on.
While we were at Sam's I renewed my membership, something I've meant to do forever. I think it has been expired for about a year. We also bought some asparagus for dinner. Back home I cleaned part of it, drizzled olive oil on it, then a little sea salt, fresh ground pepper and some lemon pepper with garlic. Scott grilled it along with the salmon. The salmon was delicious!! Everything was delicious!! What a wonderful dinner, enjoyed while Kylee explained to us the benefits of fatty omega 3 oils in our diet! Cracks me up, that girl!!
Night, you guys!!
Life is beautiful!!!
