I do not get much done in the sewing room with Oscar in the house but he was in the house for the afternoon feeding and waiting patiently me to get my shoes changed so we could go walk. Read that as alternating between jumping against the gate twanging the metal and laying down, giving me the sad brown eyes and whimpering. Bad Doggie Mama! So I closed off the bedroom doors and let him roam in the hall and sewing room AKA Skyler's Space.
Mind you, I thought the door was closed! I don't know which one of them knows how to push the door open. Maybe both of them can. Look what I spotted when I followed the cat yowling noises. Under the bed, I might expect as I have caught him under there before! On top?? How did my leg challenged dogger get up there when my feet don't touch the floor when seated on the bed. Either crawled up on the night stand or the blanket chest but that is still a bit high up or him.
These were taken on my phone camera the night before and in this sequence. Both of them were napping and enjoying the afternoon sun.
Oscar was the first to circulate
Then Skyler had to see what/where Oscar was headed but still was enjoying the last of the afternoon light
Then they swapped places. Oscar can and does get up on the coffee table occasionally but normally it is not covered with a quilted piece!
And yet, they can both be a comfort to me too, in their own way. I was listening to some music yesterday, the lyrics kind of got to me (drawing my own parallels) and I was crying. One of those missing DJ moments/days/hours again. Oscar came running from the kitchen, hopped up on the couch, snuggled in and gave me some doggie kisses. THX for that. Critter version of a hug, I guess. Skyler, on the other hand, loves to snuggle up against me when I flop down on the bed with him. Yeah, I know it is mostly about him-- he wants petted or knows he has my undivided attention-- but I still love those moments together.
I finally got around to making pizza last night, after being hungry for it for weeks. I made my own sauce using a super simple no cook sauce from All Recipes Exquisite Pizza Sauce (left out the hot pepper flakes as I do not like them or have any on hand). Pretty good sauce actually and would be good on spaghetti too. My crust recipe is one that I like after trying a bunch of them and practicing on DJ from Prepared Pantry in this Vegetable and Sausage Supreme recipe. I made a thinner crust this time and did two small individual pizzas and took one down to Miss Kathryn as I know she prefers that from a conversation we had in the past. I also shared several slices with Glynda and Robert. They had already eaten, early like me so I guess lunch is covered. I had not told any of them what I was up to so that should have been expected. My leftovers went to the freezer. One of these days I am going to try my hand at cinnamon rolls again. Always hungry for those and now that it has cooled down a bit I don't mind the oven being on near as much, LOL.
My across the lane neighbor has moved out. Robert said he thought that Willie was moving but I saw him the other day when I was walking Oscar and he confirmed it. Moving into a smaller house, with less yard but still in the area. He had lived there about as long as DJ and I have been in Alabama, 17 yrs. Divorced a year ago so he reached decision time, stay or go. House will be going on the market.
Other than that: my Cardinals did not manage to advance past the NLCS and the Giants did. Bama won big yesterday. Auburn had a bye week. Talladega race weekend but I hardly left the house except to walk the dog and run a few errands and Oscar went with me for most of that. Quick dash in and out. And sew it goes-----
