Off to the City

Today,  we are going to Huntsville to get some shopping done. We seem to have to make that trip at least once a week but, when we do go, we always have a list  of things to be done.  When we lived in Edmonton, we would shop most days.  I think we now not only save money but also fuel.  It is 30 kms to Huntsville but but it is nearly all highway which is fuel efficient.  In Edmonton, while things were generally closer, the urban stop and go was hard on the vehicle and the wallet.
A couple of days ago, I was talking about pets being creatures of habit.  Our recent snow melt has created a bit of a problem for Heidi.  All winter, she has been going to the toilet on the snow.  Now with it nearly all gone, we can see her looking around and wondering what to do.  When I take her for a walk, she heads for the first bit of white stuff.  A lady in the quilt group who has two little pugs says that they do the same.  We went through the same thing last year so I am sure that Heidi will adjust again.  Of course, when the snow falls we will go through the same thing in reverse.  We are supposed to get a few snow showers next week so I am sure that will make her happy.  Aren't pets fun!
