Does WIAW mean that you post what you ate on Tuesday on Wednesday? I don't think I'll ever stop being too lazy to take pictures of everything I eat, but just in case, it would be good to know.

In other news, Haruki made a new friend! More importantly, she didn't attempt to mortally wound said new friend! Yay!

That's Jenny, and she belongs to our blacksmith, Will. Will and Jenny came over last night to drop off some metal sheets for our garage doors. After a few tense moments (on my part) Jenny and Haruki literally frolicked for an hour. I have to say, I don't like Haruki's dog aggression because it scares and embarrasses me,* but seeing how happy she was to have a friend made me want to keep working hard at getting her to relax around other dogs.  

Am I the only one who thinks it's adorable that Haruki and Jenny are drinking together out of the same bowl?

In other news, I went to a new class at the gym today and had my ego taken down a notch. It was a step aerobics class, and although the group exercise classes I've been taking have some step aerobics, this was another story. Let's just say that there is a reason I don't dance unless I've had a lot to drink, and it might have something to do with how stupid I looked when the instructor told us to do a "Meringue" move.

I still don't know what that means, but I'm pretty confident that I didn't do it correctly. Sigh. But at least I'm learning to love looking stupid--if only for the sake of getting a good workout:-)

*I know. It says a lot about my neuroses that I'm embarrassed by my dog's behavior. I'm working on it (With Peanut Butter Puffins) (And cheese for Haruki).

**Tell me something good: best thing that you've eaten in the last 24 hours, or something that made you v.v. happy recently?


  1. I apologize that I kinda lost focus for most of your post after I read you have a blacksmith. You say that like I would say I have a dentist or a barber. Now I'm really intrigued.

    I'd love to have a blacksmith. I'm intrigued by it and am trying to bone up on some useful skills that aren't computer-related.

  2. Oh, and something that made my happy today? Our realtor called and the offer we made on a house is about to be signed. Not officially signed yet, so still crossing fingers, but he was told it's about to be signed. :)

  3. Haha--I didn't even think about how weird it probably sounds to hear that someone "has" a blacksmith. He's supposed to come over today so I'll try to get some pics for you to check out his handiwork:-)
    And congratulations on the house! I hope it works out!
