Hang ‘Em High and Miscellaneous

December 20, 2010

I used to have a garage (and will here as well — hopefully this spring).  Everything for which I did not have a designated spot went onto shelves in the garage.  Without a garage, I have many boxes of “stuff” that have no home.  I’m trying to make better use of wall space.  To that end, I bought a sheet of white pegboard, had it cut in half and hung one of those halves on the laundry room wall.  That’s where my tools are now.  When Mandy and Carolyn were here, they assembled a utility cabinet for me (while I took Jenn to the airport).  It’s filling up with cleaners and other bulky stuff that won’t hang on the walls.

That left a half sheet of pegboard which is now in my dog room (NOT to be confused with the puppy room).  A hundred or so tiny safety pins, some ornament hangers and — voila!  The ribbon collection is out of a box.  I’m almost done hanging everything.

In other late evening and overnight news:

Susan Shields called to tell me that Chase had a very good herding session yesterday.  He is learning how far he must stay from his livestock so they don’t feel pressured, and that he shouldn’t run the sheep over Susan.

The puppies, which have been eating in small crates for a week, last night spent their first overnight each in an individual crate.  We had some hollering for the first half hour, then we all went to sleep — there were no accidents!  Such good puppies!  Now we begin some basic leash training.

The cute little baybeez made The Daily Corgi this morning.  Shopping in my refrigerator was worth a post.

I guess I must go to work — I hate to leave them here without me to play with.

    Awww, I know the puppies miss you terribly during the day, too!

    Yup, Chaser had a really GREAT session yesterday, in the chilly and MUDDY field! He loved it! Me, not so much, although Ms. Treasure and I performed well, too! I’m reasonably confident once I actualy TEACH her a stay, that we will pass our HT with flying colors–unless she decides to stop and eat sheep poop all around the ring, of course! Sigh, I guess I really ought to teach the stay!

    I saw the baybeez on Daily Corgi and of course had to show all my friends at work, LOL. I could not possibly go to work with so much cuteness rampaging around my house!
