That's not a euphemism for anything. I bought a $7 set of clippers and shaved his beard. Now, he's happy. I can tell because he no longer looks at me like he wants to chew on my kidney.
I used to cut hair before my nursing days. Truth be told, while dogs are not as picky as humans, they are certainly more challenging to cut...all that squirming around. Sam squirmed a little, but for the most part, stayed perfectly still. I think he knew exactly what I was doing, and was grateful for it.
While not the best haircut I have ever given, he looks a lot better. This haircut should in no way demonstrate my ability with shears, just in case someone out there was looking for a free haircut because the person who normally does his hair won't return his phone calls.
Awesome blogger, Pom, posted a pic of some cookies she made, with the link to the recipe for homemade Oreos. I haven't really done a lot of serious baking since I moved in, which is something I love to do. So, after reading the raving reviews of these cookies, I thought I would make a batch. The first batch was okay. I stayed up at 1am to make them. The second batch, I made this afternoon.
In grand tradition, I accidentally burned the last batch when I tripped the breaker (too much crap turned on in addition to the air conditioning unit) and the timer shut off. The slightly burned batch turned out to be the best cookies of all of them, but I do love a slightly burned cookie...and I am kind of weird like that.
The smaller cookie in the back is one of the burnt ones. That one's mine. I'll probably take a bunch to work to share. I even went out and bought some Shatto milk to enjoy with my burnt cookies. There were only six of them (the burnt cookies). Now, I am down to three.
So easy to make, I will probably be making a ton more of these cookies in the future.
