    You inspire me too, Apple. I read about your hard work around your property. I need to buy some paint and get to work on some projects here. We have some travel planned and money will be tight as we cover the expenses of the trips, so the painting is on hold.

    This year tied the records for the hottest summer and I don't know about you, but working and exercising in the heat, just drains the energy out of me.

    We were doing errands yesterday and I hadn't logged in anything that I had eaten. When I tried, that's when I found out the computer was infected with malware, after a long scan for viruses, my son told me that we couldn't remove the problem with that program and I had to do another whole system scan. It was nearly 2 AM Sunday morning before the computer worked again and I decided to just forget about trying to remember everything that I had eaten and logging my exercise.
    If my son hadn't been here, I would be stuck. I don't know much about computers.

    Hi dear friend,
    I just prayed for you that your health would be restored and that you would have a good weekend since it's Friday. Thank you for your daily comments on my blogs. Sometimes my day is full of activity and I don't get on the computer until the wee hours of the morning to answer the comments or read any one else's blogs.
    Yesterday, I babysat my son's girlfriend's youngest son. He is 8 years old and her kids always test the boundaries. He kept asking where Crellie, our cat, was and I told him even if he guessed where she was, I would lie to him and tell him that she wasn't there because I do not want Princess to hurt her.

    Crellie has shown nothing but love and I would rather rehome her than think that she could be killed by our rottweiler. I am still praying that somehow the rottweiler would adjust to her and not hurt her, but with Matthew being here, I was worn out last evening when his Mom came to pick him up. He was supposed to come here today, but my son told me this morning, he had gone to his father's house instead. I got maybe two hours of sleep because of fretting that he might find Crellie and leave the door unlatched, enough that Princess could push it open.

    My exercise is increasing since we got the dog. Cesar Millan and Victoria Stilwell, professional dog trainers, both recommend making sure a dog is exercised so they don't become bored and get into trouble. Princess is high energy and when we walk, I have to be on the lookout for cats and rabbits or anyone that is on a porch higher than the sidewalk. Tonight she bumped an empty plastic trash can and scared herself. I had to take her up to it and rattle it and have her overcome her fear of it after she bumped it and it made a noise.
    Since she is a rescue dog, I don't know if she has been tormented, scared, beaten, yelled at, or taught to chase (sic) other animals. A woman came up to her tonight on our walk and hugged her and petted her, a man came over and when he went to reach out to pet her, she barked furiously and ran in circles like he had thrown a rock at her. As her owner, I have to be wary of behaviors like this.
