Linda only got to spend a little bit of time with Penny this morning, but they had so much fun.  Every week Penny is adding more and more words to her vocabulary.  She is such a joy to be with!  While Sarah cleaned and did chores, Linda took Penny on a walk and they played at the park. 

Linda was pretending that it hurt when Penny's feet touched her.  It made her giggle each time.  At the playground, there is an ABC sculpture.  Penny was able to point out the P, D, B and eventually a few other letters too.  Such a smart girl!

Chimi went to Pet Smart to get his nails cut and some other basic grooming today but for the second time, they vet tech wouldn't (couldn't) do it.  Chimi squirms, cries and basically acts like you're killing him and it takes a firm hand to cut his nails.  For some reason, the tech was afraid Chimi was going to bite her.  (In his whole life, he's never bit anyone.)  She should have put a muzzle on him and just snipped them.  Gosh, he's just over 15 pounds.  Its not like he is a 100 pound Rottweiler or anything. Poor pooch, Linda feels bad for him.  Looks like a trip to the vet next week. Those techs mean business and can get the job done. 

Linda ate nothing exciting for dinner tonight (chips and hummus) but lunch was wonderful.  She saw a recipe for zucchini fries, so she tried it.  Um....those people who say zucchini tastes "just like fries!" are crazy.  They were really delicious, but only tasted like zucchini with crunchy topping and nothing like french fries. Those must be the same people who have an apple to satisfy an ice cream craving. She also baked the rest of the asparagus; this time adding basil and Parmesan cheese.
Vegetables > Meat in Linda's opinion
