I feel like this old mule....

First of all, I want to thank the ones that responded to my queries about blogging. I really enjoyed reading your answers.
Now, on with the day...I feel like I think this old mule looks to me...tired. When Roger found out that Lorelei was not going to be here today, he suggested a couple errands. And I added a couple more. We spent the biggest part of the day in Terre Haute! Was I ever glad to get home in the afternoon.

We went out to eat breakfast, to the library down there where I had a book overdue. I just returned everything I had and came home with another load of books, DVDs, and books. We had seen the movie Defiance about the Bielski brothers who were responsible for saving hundreds of Jews during WWII. So I came home with a book about the brothers and have read a couple pages in it and it promises to be very good.

I also came home with an audio book about Charles Shulz and Peanuts...I have listed to a bit of it and I think it will be good as well. Now to just find time to listen to it or read the other. I brought home a load of stuff and know that there is no hope of getting through it all...but at least I have plenty to choose from.

In addition, I went to Joann fabrics where i did not find a single piece of fabric that I wanted, but I did get batting for Lorelei's new quilt. Now to find time to get the backing made and the quilt sandwiched and quilted. But I can dream, can't I?
I keep forgetting to tell this little tidbit about Lorelei. Sarah told me one day last week that she was fixing supper and had Lorelei in the kitchen with the high chair. Sarah had her back to her and turned around to see her leaning out as far as she could reaching her hand out to Otto for him to lick it all the time with a big smile on her face.

It is for sure in her genes that she is going to love animals....just no way of getting around it. She gets a smile on her face and can't take her eyes off the cats here or Shelby if they are moving.
I got to thinking about this post I read over a year ago...I had to search to find it. I knew it was at Mrs. Nesbitt's Place, but just couldn't remember how long I looked some this morn, but didn't have time to find it till this evening. I laugh till I cry, but no one else seems to think it as funny as me. So, I thought I would share it here and see if anyone else thinks it funny, or is it for people who have dogs and have had similar experiences?

Hi Rose, Sounds like you are one tired cookie (as I say when I'm tired)... Sounds like you did get some errands run today---so that was good.

My friend Judy keeps her grands alot--and she loves them and being with them, but she says that they wear her out. Our kids don't know that we're not as young as we used to be!!!!!

Relax and read one of those new books you got.

I'll confess that I'm tired today as well, but I'm afraid I don't look as good as the mule does. I really like Charles Shultz and Peanuts as well.

Sometimes I do feel like the old tired looking mule. Seems like worse the last month. Summer isn't suppose to be the time for tiredness.

Sad-looking, but cute.

I like this curious mule and his nice shades of color.
The trees would like nice 'rubbing' places when he has an itch! Nice shot.

I always think mules look tired. :)
I've had migraines for a couple of weeks and have been way tired for most of it. I got new meds yesterday and so far they promise to make me feel more like me.

I missed yesterday's post so I'll say really briefly that I like some for each - writing if it's not too long and of course photos.
Most photo blogs I find through the memes.
Yours I like for both and because we have so many similar interests. :)

Hmm...I think that mule might resemble me this week! LOL! Hope you get plenty of rest and have a great rest of the week!!

I can never tell the difference between a mule and a donkey

I read Denise's post...and YES, very funny. I'm so glad it wasn't me taking the dogs to the vets! ;-)

Rose: I know that since my heart problems I get tired so much more quickly. I have been fighting a sinus infection for a week and a half and finally went to the doctors. A little on takes so much energy.
