I can't put my finger on it but for some reason I have been extremely lazy lately and that has rubbed off on the hounds and a dog. They have become just as lazy as I have. I check my vital signs on my iWatch, take my blood twice in a day and find nothing out of the ordinary. Has tv and radio media wore me down with political bullshit making me feel this way? Or is it the China virus after seven months of more media bullshit? I even pulled out a bike the other day to go riding and turned around at the end of the block. Stella doesn't take walks everyday like she use to and Henry is just a bit to small to try the .62 mile walk.
At first I thought I was seeing the waterfall in a time of year it would be impossible. As I blew up the photo is was only the rock I was seeing, center of the photo.
Temps are dropping into the high 80s for the next few days. We are not as hot as Tucson but since January 1, they have had 107 days above 100° shattering all time records. I had a 10mph breeze today, but it was a warm breeze ... had to turn on the AC. Consequently Heidi has not moved from her bed in the bedroom where it's dark with the blinds drawn to keep out the southern sun.
Deep thought ... too bad I didn't get the image centered when I took the picture.
This afternoon I moved my famous patio chair, the one I bought only as a temporary solution 16 months ago, out to the middle of the yard to see what my view would be like if I built a patio out there. I would be able to see around the small tree. Here is the view sitting while sitting in that chair at ground level.
Looking back into the sun the photo is not the best but still captures what Henry is about to do.
If I didn't know any better I'd think that Stella is missing her friend, the doberman. Quite a shock to hear that my neighbors have separated and he took his dog with him. It's been pretty quiet lately without the watchdog doberman around. I wondered what was going on.
See how much nicer the photo looks taking the photo from the opposite side of Henry?
These are photos from the other night. Henry is really growing fast, getting longer, as well as his personality becoming more obvious.
Living back in 'the tropics' I never thought I would be waking up every day just as the sun was coming up. Seeing this most days makes getting up really early that much easier.
This gives a good idea how fast Henry is growing. He will not fit under the coffee table much longer.
Walter enjoys anytime he can get a break from Henry and catch some afternoon sleep.
Well well well ... look who is asking to break the house rules and get up on the couch.
I have been having a lot of thoughts about the political circus and thought about blogging about them like I did a few years ago. I also thought about going back to being 'transparent' as they say but I stopped doing that after a short trial back in 2018/2019, just after the change of the new year. I don't have the energy to argue, to back up what my opinion is, and I am not really open minded enough to do the old favorite "agree to disagree" ... let's just say between politics and the virus, my list of friends has decreased this past year.
More than anything though I wish I could get out of the funk I have seem to have been in for months. My drives in the VWs are short, the dog walks are infrequent as are the hikes as is riding the bikes. I buy food then would prefer to eat something else. I want to go somewhere but then don't know where. It's interesting.
The best part never changes ... there is nothing better than laying in the middle of the computer room floor and let two puppies and two dogs smother me wanting all the attention, to play, or to wrestle. It's probably good they don't have the virus eh?
No worries ... days are always good in the 'Wild West'.
Oh ... almost forgot ... I was moving last month or two, had bought a house and had sold my house because I was tired of the barking dog next door and the small four yapping dogs down the street that 'attacked' everyone that walked by their house ... well in 8 days, the family down the street took their kids and their dogs and moved back to Tucson. The dog next door I told you about in this post. Funny how things work out sometimes.
