Things have gotten complicated here. Last night I managed to break my toe (a heavy mug fell and the rim hit just above the main joint of the big toe that connects it to the left foot… twice as it bounced). Feels lovely this morning. But more importantly there is something wrong with Moose. I have been up since around 6am with him. He has gotten sick numerous times and won’t eat. I thought we could go back to bed but he just laid on the floor beside me until him tummy made him get up. Then back outside he went. I finally gave up around 7am as he was getting sick a lot. So here I am. I don’t know what to do for him. I will call the vet tomorrow even if he gets better today. All these things are symptoms of his kidney disease getting worse.
It is still cool out so I will wait to put the plants back out. I had them out yesterday since it was sunny and warm. We didn’t get frost last night but it was a near thing. I’m glad I brought them all in. I still have seeds that I need to get out. My concern is that I have planted seeds and seedlings alike and their growth compared to the ones in the containers is stunted. I can’t help thinking that the ants have something to do with it. I even put the good dirt down when I am planting in the gardens but every time a few days later a bunch of ant mounds show up all over the area I just planted in. It’s very frustrating.
Since today is Chris’s day off I will be making another Mexican dish (his choice). It will be a bit different from the recipe since I couldn’t find the meat they called for and I added a spice or two. The dish is called carne asada. I even made my own pico de gallo last night. (I was going to do it today but I thought it might taste better if it sat a day or so.) Hopefully it all turns out. I will let you know tomorrow. Speaking of which I should get to it. I have to make the marinade and it has to soak for atleast two hours. So thanks for reading and I hope you have a great day! Stay safe!
