Obedient Dog

Way back in May of 2018 I went to the Boone Area Humane Society’s Dog Obedience School to take some pictures of the class for the Boone Area Humane Society newsletter. A publication of some note.

I have no clue what picture they used, but here are some of the options they were given:

I have a few more Boone Area Humane Society Pictures to publish yet, but not many.


Here is an update on my goal to eat out for lunch only/less than 20% of the time in 2019.

I am currently 0/13 for the month of February. Combine that with January’s 1/22, I am currently 1/35 for 2019. I am currently at 3.0%. Pretty much crushing my goal of 20%!

I have currently spent $43.21 on lunch groceries in February.

Estimating that it costs me $10 (at the aggregate level) to go out to lunch per day, I have currently saved in the month of February:


Last week I once again had overnight oats. The recipe I used was similar to last week’s recipe, but I made a couple of switches:


1/2 cup uncooked old fashioned oats
2/3 cup skim milk
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
3 teaspoons dried chia seeds
2 tablespoon peanut butter
1 banana

I bought an organic non-GMO peanut butter, that didn’t taste the best. Not bad, but certainly no Jif. But by the end of the week it had grown on me.

If you have any recipes you would like me to try, leave them in the COMMENTS section of this here blog. The recipe needs to be easy. I mean really easy. Plus, relatively healthy. I eat bad enough as it is on weekends.

I’ve still only eaten fast food twice in 2019.

Sometimes I still stare longingly at B-Bop’s through the Computer Mine kitchen window.

  1. Naima didn’t make it through Dog Obedience Class. I signed her up in the middle of the whole crisis where they gave away somebody else’s dog and there was massive turnover. I had three different teachers in three weeks. All of them saying that Naima needed different collars.

    I decided it was a waste of time. Yet she ended up perfect any ways, somehow.

    I respect people that can actually make it all the way through dog obedience class, because my experience was, it was a complete waste of time. But at the time, I was always willing to help out the Humane Society. We will see how the wind blows under the current administration though.

    Today I might actually go out for lunch. I have salad mix in the fridge, but I think I used up all the salad dressing yesterday. I have some, but I think it is expired. We will see what happens.
