WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: A Day In My Life
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A CONFIRMED CURMUDGEON AND HIS CANINE COMPANION! A multi-photo challenge with captions.
The first thing I do when I get up in the morning is jump out of bed … turn the heat on … and jump back in bed until the house warms up. My faithful canine companion jumps back in bed behind me and we both get in a few more winks.
Then I let Mlle. Renee out to tend to her morning duties.
Breakfast is next with a calendar puzzle to solve while I eat.
I always pour the left over 2% milk in Renee’s bowl next to her IAMS.
I also put a little something out for our feathered friends.
Riding the Metro is a great way to get in some reading.
Because I had a lot of chores at home, I decided to pass on lunch and picked up a sandwich at the store’s deli counter. The overstuffed, N.Y. style, hot pastrami sandwich from Carl’s was pretty tempting until I realized that it was Passover and they would be using grocery rye instead of rye from the Jewish Bakery.
While waiting for my return bus, I noticed that the trees along the street were starting to bud.
To give you an idea of the size of the city of Saint Louis, I shot this photo from the bus when we crossed the street that marks the border line. This view shows the entire city from west to east … meaning the Mississippi River. Of course, the city runs along the Mississippi for a much longer distance going from north to south.
It was Recycling Collection Day and I had to bring in the dumpster. Renee always has to go along with when I take out or bring in the containers. She runs alongside of me carrying her ball or an old milk bottle. Guess she thinks she’s doing her part.
I also noticed that despite Sunday’s foot and a half of snow the spring bulbs were sprouting.
Then I went back in the house to pick up all the toys Renee always drags out, before I started vacuuming, dusting, washing dishes, and baking fish for dinner.
THAT’S MY LIFE …
AND WELCOME TO IT!
Oh, one other thing…
