Yvonne is on two weeks of holidays and naturally wants me to spend it with her. Unfortunately, I have too much to do before month-end is over, so I came back Late Sunday night to Winnipeg. I had car troubles in that my “Low Coolant” light kept blinking on. Because I’ve never seen that, nor had any water with me .. I just stopped at the side of the road and turned the car off for about 5-minutes. It seemed to work, but I will be getting it looked at on Wednesday.
I took Maxxie home with me .. and Sophie is up there with Yv. Hopefully they will remember each other when they meet next weekend! It seems .. that our dogs – interferes with Yvonne’s Jogging routine. I bought the bike to get exercise and go out riding every morning with Yvonne while she jogs for about 1-1/2 hours. It became apparent to Yv that the dogs cramp her style and do not keep up. It’s just not feasible to have dogs slow you down when you want to jog. I talked about my biking experience last week when I tried to go with her while she jogs .. but, this week our neighbor happened to mention that during the entire time that we were gone – and Maxxie and Sophie were locked up in the house … they were barking like crazy. NOT GOOD at 7:30am in the morning.
Although Yvonne wanted Maxxie – without me to stay home while she jogs .. she thought Maxxie is the instigator and didn’t want him. Or rather, wanted him – but unwilling to change her routine for the pets. It’s a shame too .. Maxxie loves it out there, taking swims .. all the smells .. other people and dogs … Although he doesn’t always listen and come back when we call him .. or he gets tired from walking too much or running too much .. he DOES have fun! Now, it’s like he’s being punished here at home this morning.
I talked to Yv this morning though .. Sophie seems to be having the same old time … staying close to Yvonne, sleeping on soft pillows or beds .. etc etc.
Karen and the kiddies are expected to arrive later in the day and be there for the week – which, gives me better excuse not to be there.
Movies Watched by HART this trip:
* Fantastic Four
Impulse shopping // I rented it from the store, even though there is about 10 recorded movies waiting for me to watch. I had never seen this movie yet.
Re: Bike … I bought this neat little expandable package that attaches to the backend .. to hold my tools … but Yv filled it up with gum and I didn’t get around to putting it on the bike until Sunday. It’s not a clean fit .. and because it’s an expandable bag .. it’s not sturdy (when empty) and I had to place it close to the seat to get that extra velcro-attachment to secure it properly. I’ll take pictures next weekend to show you what I mean. I might replace it with something else.
Boy. Sure miss swimming .. I am a water hound … at least 3 times per day, for an hour or so each time .. That’s without any accessories .. although, once I used a noodle contraction to try and float on my back with – works okay.
