Charlie now sleeping in the living room with a diaper instead of in his crate where he has slept since I brought him home. He has always barked me awake but usually close to the time I had to get up anyway. Then he started doing it a 4, then 3, then 1:30AM SO, he gets his way. I put him in a diaper and let him sleep in the living room along with Roxy. Blake, Gianni and Katie-girl are with me behind a closed door. On work days, I get up before Bill and let Charlie out. On weekends, Bill gets up before me and he lets him out. No more waking up to a shrill beagle bark.
The Internet. Surfing this morning..."French Girls Don't Get Fat" an older book about eating/cooking the French way. I looked at the website this morning to check for body shaming, sexist (ie 'girls' instead of 'women') . It's fun to read some of her blog entries and there are fun French things...one of her recommended restaurants was right by the apartment where I stayed. Some interesting recipes that look pretty yummy and simple.
Had the dates wrong about picking up the food my niece had made for me. It's tonight instead of tomorrow so I will pick it up (did I say yesterday that my niece in GA found a woman in this area who prepares and delivers meals?? She hired the woman to make me a big dinner that will last a few days as part of her birthday present to me. She has cooked meals for my sister and nephew) and, along with some wine I already have, head to Aisha's apartment to share the meal.
Less hot and humid today. Actually, a very nice summer day which is rare in Richmond.
