Quiet House

Thursday, Aug 30

Sadie and Bernice are spending the day at the veterinarian’s office, so it’s pretty darned quiet around here. Sadie is having a wart removed, and Bernice, the orginal bad-breath Yorkie, is having her teeth cleaned. They’ll be ready to be picked up around four, and the hours in between will be lonnnnnnnng. Dog energy is like horse energy–when the animals are away from home for some reason, it upsets the balance.

The sky is cloudy, though they’re predicting a high of 92 for Spokane. Looks to me like we might get a goose-drowner of a rain storm. As much as I love sunny weather, we could use the water.

In the meantime, I have writing to do. My heroine, Olivia O’Ballivan, just found a reindeer standing at the base of her driveway, and of course it must be dealt with, the situation, I mean. A reindeer in Arizona? Who ever heard of that??? (“Christmas at Stone Creek”, Silhouette Special Edition, December of 09).

So I’m off to modern-day Stone Creek. I’ll try not to obsess about the dogs.
