Rainy day raclette

6 more days 'til my barkday

Ruh-roh! Day 7 and water still coming out of the sky. Somebody should fix that leak. I be lying if I said we weren’t going a little stir-crazy, but it’s probably rougher on the humans since they aren’t inclined to flop down onto the floor and curl up next to the fire. More space 4 me.

The one thing that they like to do is prep food – for them, not us – and if there’s a sure-fire remedy for the rainy day blues, raclette has got to be it. We even went to Ikea for pickled herring things and reindeer cold cuts, but all I got to taste were the leftover broccoli bits.

Raclette may be a swiss invention, but a french company figured that packaged precut slices would spell success in italian supermarkets. It means diddly squat to me but if they start peddling raclette-flavored kibble, I be the first to bark about it.

 "I don't know what I was thinking."

“I don’t know what I was thinking.”

Rainy days and being stuck indoors go hand in hand with watching the tube. We never miss an episode of Pawn Stars – Chumlee is the homeboy of international daytime tv. Everybody ruvs an underdog!

      I’m going to take this raclette goodness one step further, but first, I need to find an actual round (or even a wedge) of the traditional raclette cheese. The only other thing I can add is that it’ll include the use of the wood stove.

      It was gorgeous yesterday – so much so that I was able to get quite a bit of laundry done. As for today…well…we take what we can get, I suppose.

      Ugh, leaks in the house! We have some of that but it’s a little more complicated due to an improperly fitted chimney exhaust system (condensation coming down the flue and spreading out onto the wall).

      Even at day 1, I could already sense a collective moan. In your travels to the peninsula, you must’ve seen windows open wide with bed sheets and pillows draped over the sill. And then there’s the laundry to hang outdoors — an impossible feat without sun!
