Roxy Makes a Good Bed Warmer

Yesterday, our dog Roxy joined my husband on the bed and did a great job keeping my side warm for me until I came.  She went in her own bed before I even cam in, such a good girl.

Handyman Needed and Found in a Friend!

I've been tightening the top screw of our kitchen cupboard from time to time because I kept seeing the hinge being loose, but yesterday, the whole cupboard door actually fell off!  I would think it could be fixed but I'm not sure how to do it.  I called Thiel's because that is the company that originally resurfaced our kitchen cupboards 19 years ago, but it seems they want to just redo everything.  I don't think that is really necessary.  I think I'll try to find a handyman that can put it back up and fix it for us.  

Thankfully, a friend from church that I play pickleball with came over one night and fixed it within an hour.  He got some longer screws and we are grateful, although he refused to take any money for his work and time.  Thanks, Jim!

Where Are You, Bear?

It was very strange that my cat, Bear, did not come on our bed during the night, nor early in the morning.  He usually does.  He didn't even come in the bathroom with me during my shower!  I looked all over for him, worried he was sick or something and hiding.  Last night, the last I saw him, he was lying by my feet while I watched TV.  After checking all his usual places, I opened the den door and out he ran straight for his litter box.  It took me a while, but then I realized I came up last night right before bed to close the little window in the bathroom off the den.  He must have came up and followed me in there without my noticing.  (I always close off the den so our dog doesn't go potty in there which happened a few times.)  I was so relieved and happy to see Bear was okay, but felt really bad that he was stuck in the den all night away from us.  I pet him up and played with him to make up for it and all is forgiven.  He even joined me again in the den this morning!

Nap Time

 After playing pickleball for two hours in the morning and drills one hour in the afternoon in 80 degrees, chose to have a little break.  Pets love afternoon nap time with me.

Ga Ga Ball is a Hit!

I was so happy the weather was warm enough for us to play outside for the first Pioneer Girls gym night yesterday at Parma Heights Baptist Church.  This year, all the girls grades 1-6 will have gym time together and for 45 minutes instead of half an hour.  Last night, we had 23 girls.  We played Ga Ga Ball first with everyone.  It was a new game for some, including myself.  I looked it up on YouTube to see how to play it and the video explained and demonstrated it quite well.  (   Once we played one game, I gave the girls the option to go play on the playground.  Ten chose to do that instead which speeded up the games some.  I like to give them choices if possible.  Everyone seemed happy with that and had fun! We played four games and then had the winners of each play in a championship game.  The winner of the night was Jojo, I believe a 5th grader.  She was very fast and aggressive.  Now I have to think of something fun inside for next month!
