I'd like to introduce you to Willie. He's a beagle - hound mix and is about six years old. We have the same energy level so I'm hoping our relationship blooms. He slept in the laundry room last night because he needs a bath and lots of brushing. The brushing has been done twice since I brought him home with me from a rescue yesterday afternoon and the bath will happen this morning. He will need to loose a few pounds though. He's a bit over weight.

time. He seems to like the cool cement floor.
He held his bladder better than I did last night and was so excited to go out this morning that he actually did lots of moving around. He now sleeps with little snores escaping now and again.
This week has been moving along fast. I can remember what I did somewhat. I know I de cluttered the kitchen cupboards, finding 11 items I don't use. Cleaned the refrigerator, also. I also went to the Farm Market to pick up some local peaches and tomatoes. They are gold. The sweet taste of a local tomato is heavenly. And, the peaches have juice that drip down the arm.
I have enough pickles to make two more jars with more coming. The heat has been in the 100s so I shaded my plants with the market umbrella which they seem to love. Many more cucumber flowers have appeared and the bees are working extra hard to pollinate them.
The floors are cleaned with only the bathrooms to be cleaned from floor to ceiling. I'll clean those after I buy dog food for Willie this morning.
The refrigerator pickles are ready this morning so I tested them. They came out yummy. Success is so rewarding.
I have been watching videos on yoo toob about food pantries in the USA and England. What I came away with is that all pantries are different. A few try to focus in on healthy foods, but most are interested in filling bellies. Some can be visited only once a month and give only three days of food per person. Others try to provide a month's worth of food per person. All fall short of the need to nourish well and keep bellies full for the day. Food pantries are on my heart and if I do donate to an organization, it is a food pantry. Most of my tithing goes to individuals who are unaware of where the gift comes from.
That's about all I can remember since I forgot to write things down this week. I wish all my readers a content and peaceful life. Stay safe.
