Today is laundry day for me. I think when I’m picking through a huge pile of dirty clothes on the ground in my room to see where my work pants are (they were on the hamper, btw) that it’s time to do laundry.
When we lived in the apartments, I got into the habit of “living” in my loungewear and washing clothes when we had the money and/or when my clothes were so nasty that I had no choice! Gross, I know…but times were hard and we didn’t always have money to do laundry and the machines weren’t great. Now we have our own washer and dryer, and actually we have had our own since living with my sister…so like 2 houses ago. I still don’t do laundry every week, but as needed. The hubbs does some of my laundry when he does his, which is just about daily….it’s the OCD.
Tonight we BBQ’d some sausages for dinner and ate outside on the deck. We had Razzle out there wearing a harness and a lead that was tied to the table. He really enjoys it outside and often tries to escape, so we sometimes take him out there. Well tonight that little shit went under the deck and got out of the harness!!! AHH!! So then it was like a wild goose chase to get him. He doesn’t have any claws and isn’t wearing a tag or collar!!! Ugh, we cannot leave him out there and we live WAY too close to a really busy intersection to not find him when he gets away from us like that! We were finally able to corner him behind the garage and we promptly put him back in the house. No more outside for him for a long while!!
Here are a few pictures of Razzle outside. My husband decided to “edge” the backyard and part of the front by hand today, so that’s the mess in the yard. And Onyx was on the other side of the stairs enjoying a nice marrow bone, that’s what Razzle is checking out when he’s on the stairs.
When he got out of the harness, my husband and I were joking that it was almost like he went under the deck a little bit to plan his escape. He’s a smart kitty and he does have thumbs (polydactyl) so I wouldn’t put it past him! LOL
Right now at work I’m listening to “Rogue” by Danielle Steele. I just started it today and it’s ok…nothing special yet. I am about to check it out on Amazon and get a plot overview and see what it’s all about. lol
