I can't act too superior about all this though. I still have a small pile of Christmas gifts sitting on a chair in the living room right next to where the Christmas tree was about a month ago. I'll get these things put away soon enough though. I am making progress. Today I took one of those items off the chair, got my woodworking tools out of the garage and turned it into something that could actually be used. The item in question was a pretty wood chopping block designed to fit over your sink with a built-in colander. The only problem was that this chopping block was designed to fit over today's huge sinks, instead of the smaller mid-century modern sink in our kitchen. After a little work with a miter saw and a belt sander, I had the thing looking exactly the same, except smaller. Now it fits perfectly! I enjoy woodworking, but since I don't have a proper shop or even a good place to store my tools, I seldom tackle any major projects. It takes me longer to find my tools these days than it does to do the work.
It didn't take Dash long to find a friend at the dog park today. Most of the time he is kind of tentative when another dog approaches him and they quickly move on to a friendlier pooch. Today he found a dog who wouldn't give up on him though. After about five minutes of racing around with his tail between his legs, Dash realized that the other dog just wanted to have fun and he started playing in earnest. This was his best day at the dog park ever. He wasn't just running around today. He was jumping, barking and rolling in the dirt, just like a normal dog.
Today's pretty Dalmatian of the Day is Chloe, one of the three new girls we picked up recently. She isn't quite healthy enough to adopt yet, but she will be soon. I don't think it will take this one long to find a home. She's a wonderful dog.
