    Goodness Sabine, you have a lot going on right now! Good on you for trying to make it puppy proof - always makes me mad though when people really couldn't be bothered to look after them properly. And I am not talking about treating them like they are kids, but kind, humane care is surprisingly uncommon; as is common sense! Sorry about the plumbing issues too, we have had our fair share of plumbing moments over the years and I don't like the way a simple job can grow and grow!

    Jenn- your dogs have your husband and the kids; they don't need everyone in the family to be in to them.

    It was really hard to see this poor little dog - who had been scampering around ten minutes before- be attacked, and then have her die in my hands. I know nature is rough, but dogs are close to my heart. I keep thinking it just isn't so, that she will somehow be alive. It almost seems worse, that her family doesn't seem that affected by it. The only people she has to mourn for her are us, who knew her about fifteen minutes.

    I know I will get over this soon, but I almost don't want it to be TOO soon, you know?

    Coll- that's just life, isn't it: one darn thing after another! Luckily, the pipes are CLEAR! So nice to be able to wash my dishes freely, and NOT to have paid a honking chunk of money to a plumber!

    Soup is bubbling on the stove, smelling wonderful. I'm making it with the beautifully gelatinous stock I made last week. Yum! The meatballs are made of a mix of pork and bison, and the veges are soup standards: turnip, carrot, zuccini, celery, onions, and cabbage. A nice basic soup that I am anticipating will be delicious.

    Mmm, soup. Looking forward to soup weather. I know, I'm crazy. Our summers are so short and I am still always happy to see them go. I just get tired of sweating, even if I don't stink anymore.

    I certainly hope your dog problems are over. I would have been so upset over something like that. I'm not overly sentimental about animals, but I do feel a sense of responsibility to be good to them. I had a cat for years without telling my husband that I had become allergic because we had more or less rescued her, and she was so timid, I just hated to think of putting her through the turmoil of having to get used to new owners. But I wasn't sorry when my daughter took her when she left home and I could stop itching! It helped that she wasn't a lap sitter and disliked being held.

    Not feeling well: dizzy and nauseous. Too much sun and heat yesterday, I think.

    Feel better, Sabine! Heat exhaustion is serious. Take it easy.

    Thanks for the info about Waxahachie. I copy and pasted your blurb and sent it to my cousin. I am sure her daughter will enjoy it. It's true Americana, it seems. She is beside herself with excitement to go to "a real American high school."

    Yes, do take care of yourself today. Go get yourself chilled at a mall or something if you don't have A/C at home.

    Just caught up on your journal. I can't imagine how awful that puppy incident was for you. I get upset when a squirrel runs in front of my car and I can't stop in time.

    A busy weekend

    Bracketed by feeling poorly.

    At the beginning I was recovering from too much heat exposure, and at the end of the weekend I had a nasty stomach/throat/intestine reaction to some spicy food.

    In between I had some fun, though. Good food was eaten. There was a lot of walking. Games were played. More weaving was done. Had a personal revelation.

    And this morning I had greens topped with fried eggs. What could be better?

    Among my other plans for today is to FINALLY make those gingered carrots. I opened my jar of pickled garlic, and it was bubbling away. Both exciting, and a little scary! I may get my honey to try them first.

    Jenn- I'm not sure what made my stock gelatinous. It usually is, but sometimes not, and I really don't track it carefully enough to determine factors. For this batch, I do know that I used a combination of different animals(cow, pig, lamb), and it cooked for 36+ hours in the crockpot on a simmer. Also, no vinegar.

    Pebbles- I am even soft-hearted about insects (except, NOT wasps, anymore!). So, a puppy: pretty bad. We are slowly getting over it. Thanks for the sympathy- from everyone.

    Eighteen days down- I think- one hundred five to go

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I skipped a day or two of keeping track while I was down for the count. In any case, I'm on Day 18 of my journal, so that's what I'll go by. Yesterday's food highlight was trying the beets I pickled. They are delicious. It inspired me, and I DID get those ginger carrots put up.

    Here was my food:

    11:00 1C greens, 2 fried eggs

    2:30 standard salad with salmon

    6:30 2 bowls of buffalo meatball and vegetable soup

    8 1/2 hours sleep- woke naturally
    15 glasses of water
    10" walking

    I wanted some more food when I got home from dog-sitting, but it was almost 9:00, so I talked myself into skipping it. Did lots of things around the house yesterday, so felt on top of things. As I am usually way behind on day-to-day tasks, this is a lovely feeling.
