Quiet day here. Hot. (what else is new?)
Did some cooking in the morning: roasted a chicken; roasted one head of cauliflower; steamed another.
Tonight I made quesadillas for Mom and me for dinner. Used up some leftovers.
The rest of the day, just hung out. Read, watched TV, including the last 2 episodes of "The Leftovers". Wonder if the book is the same? Wonder if it would answer a few questions I have. I might check it out (if the library has it)
Nothing to watch on TV tonight, unless we find something On Demand.
Nougat wants to go outside (she just finished eating, and that's the routine). But we were outside less than an hour ago, and it's freakin' HOT out there.....and there's no shade on the back patio at this time of day. She can be pretty adamant (growling, pawing, jumping) when she wants something. But she has to learn that she can tell us what she wants.....but she will get it if and when we decide. (the exception being requests to go out to potty. That's an immediate "Yes")
This morning she got me up at 6:45. We went out, she did her business, we came back to bed. At 7:45, she wanted breakfast. She started getting a little too rowdy and insistent, so I made her wait until she calmed down (I started petting her, and that got her to lie down and roll over). At 8, I praised her for being patient, and got her breakfast.
She's been a good girl for the rest of the day, but now, as evening falls, is when she turns into Gremlin Dog. It's a good thing she's cute, and good the rest of the time!!
