2 Favorites & 1 Pet Peeve

Breathing-Fragile-Life Joan Winifred respect

My 2 favorite chores…1. laundry…(the entire process: washing, drying, hanging on line, folding, arranging outfits, ironing, wearing fresh, clean.)

2. car cleaning…(the entire process: emptying mini-van of various items left behind by kids/hubby, dusting/washing interior, dust busting/sweeping/vacuuming interior…detailing, exterior soaping/scrubbing, rinsing and drying/polishing by hand including hubcaps and floor mats -lol..oh, and riding fresh, clean.)

The best part of these chores is…accomplishing them with my happy helpers, my kids. My little girls LOVE doing laundry…and my teen son is great about cleaning the car…(he doesn’t drive just yet).

My pet peeve…See i LOVE walking barefoot on grass (and so do my kids), enJOYing the sunshine (say while i clean my car)…and i like to enJOY the (preference) freedom of NOT stepping in…poop. (Is it too much to ask doggie guardians/owners to PLEASE pick up after Your loved one…so, my front lawn doesn’t become a doggie bathroom/poop minefield?) (And Yes, i have freely forgiven:) and put on flip-flops)…a doggie must do his duty, eh? and pet person, huh?)..(p.s. didn’t step in any…”usually” watch (am aware) where i walk…especially when barefoot! 😉


FY: i had doggie’s (as pets, kids, family members) for the first 20 years of my 23 year marriage (before and after 4 human kids) …until a couple cats needed rescuing and/or adopted us…(which i have always loved cats, too…grew up w/kitty-cats)…it was always our practice to pick up after our doggies…(and kids, eh?)…when possible/feasible…so, tried to always be prepared when on a walk, etc.

What do You think Reader (should/would/ought) neighbors be considerate and pick up their pet’s poop?
