Cooper wanted to WALK this morning! It was only about 15 degrees, but that is about 40 degrees warmer than yesterday. When we set out I figured a couple miles would do, but he had other ideas. We walked almost 5 miles. Happy pup! And he did his business four times! Yikes, I guess he was done holding things in. LOL!
This afternoon I had to go grocery shopping. I was running low on fresh produce. I had a potato, a lemon, an orange and 2 onions left in my kitchen. Not that I don't have canned goods, but I like to eat fresh food often. So, dad and I went shopping. Good thing I had a list. I gave it to him and he went off to get everything on the list, while I got all the extra things which weren't on the list. We also stopped and got dog treats. I was running low on those, and hate to run out.
I made chili on Monday, and I am still eating it... and will probably do so for another 2-3 days. I made it SPICY! I put in jalapenos, cayenne, and peri peppers. I figured I would burn this cold out. It seems to be working. Today was the first day I have felt like I might be beating the crud. Still sniffling and sneezing, but no sore throat and no headache. I figure if I give it another couple days I should be back to good health.
It felt so good to get out for a nice long walk with Cooper this morning. We both needed that!
