Happy Tuesday ladies. Another T Day has arrived and today is a good kind of Tuesday for me because I am home on my winter break.
Stop over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog
to see what the T gang has been drinking and perhaps even eating lately because it is T STands for Tuesday.
So my vacation has been exciting for a stay at home week. First of all we had some some snow on Sunday.
It wasn't a lot as you can see but since it made the roads pretty slick I stayed home and watched a bunch of Netflix shows as well as made some art.
Then on Sunday night we had a visiter.
This is not my photo, but since I never saw our visiter it will have to make do. But of course our visiter wandered through the yard just as we were letting the dogs out for their before bed relief. If you aren't familiar with this guy-Mr. Skunk- they have the worst smelling and hardest to get rid of spray as part of their defense. This year with our warm February weather they have come out of hibernation early.
Our girl dog is smart, she managed to avoid Mr. Skunk. But our boy dog Pete is a hunter, especially for small animals like squirrels, and he was too curious about this visiter.
Mr. Skunk was not having him snoop too close.
So as you might have guessed, instead of going to bed early Sunday night I was bathing Pete, and then listening to him whine as we put him in the basement. Even still, the few minutes he was in the living part of the house left quite an odor behind. So I spent Monday airing out the house (thankfully we are having some fairly warm weather for February) and putting out bowls of vinegar to absorb some of the smell. I washed Pete Sunday night with a mix of hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and soap, which works GREAT, so much so that by Monday he was bearable in the house, but then I took him off to get groomed anyhow. He still has a residual smell which he probably thinks is wonderful. (Augh) If you have bleached your hair you know that hydrogen peroxide removes color, so now Mr. Pete is not all black but has some brown patches. You can sort of see that by his back legs.
But my pot of tulip bulbs that I bought a couple of weeks ago are looking quite pretty.
But before all of this excitement occured, Saturday my husband and I went out and drove the hour to Manchester so I could visit about the only camera shop around. Then he took me to lunch, which was really why we drove to Manchester, the camera shop was just a part of the trip.
We decided to go have some of the world's best chicken fingers at the Puritan Back Room restaurant.
This was only my second trip there.
Even though we arrived at 1:30 and the place is pretty large, wee still had a 20 minute wait.
There were a lot of big groups that day. I think people must go there to celebrate.
But we had our little table and ordered our chicken fingers.
Now the Puritan is actually an Americanized Greek restaurant.
So my chicken finger meal came with a big Greek salad and some pita bread.
The salad was delicious. And you can see I was trying to be healthy and just drink water,
But by the time my chicken fingers came, I needed a caffeine boost so you can see the Diet Coke I ordered.
Anyhow, I took half my chicken home, as did the hubby, and we both had it for lunch again on Sunday.
So I am linking up to T Stands for Tuesday
. This post has taken my way too long to write, so if I don't get to your blog this morning, I will be by later today.
Today I am heading off for lunch with some work friends so I can't dawdle all morning.
happy Tuesday everyone.
And as always, I appreciate you taking your time to stop by and visit.
