    Who me? Naw, I'd never do that. 😉
    Depending on the dog you can get one now and it'll be fine. We take her out on walks and it's been in the 30s at night and 40s during the day. She thinks nothing of it. We don't have snow or anything though. We walk around our area and through a park so she gets some changes. We're taking her down to the pond pretty soon. There are walking trails around it. Then we'll take her on some short hiking trails and see how she does.

    Of course it's awful!  I stare at the wall the whole time.  I don't have a choice though.  I have to keep up appearances in every way.

    I think you're trying to entice me too with the idea of being able to take a dog on walks and it's working.  I see the upcoming forecast for next month and it looks like spring's coming.  We could go on so many different walking routes around here.  The possibilities are endless!😃

    Yesterday did 45 mins of weight training, squats, power cleans, power press, and push ups. Oh what fun... Plus 11K steps. Taking the dog out regularly so she can get used to long walks. She's coming hiking with us in a month or so. Got to get her in BAMF shape too!  LOL...
    Today will be a short cardio blast followed by some stretching.

    Well here's a thought for you on that. You're a decent person. You love animals. The fact you have depression, anxiety, issues and so on. They don't seem to affect your ability to live alone and take care of yourself. So taking care of a dog is not that much to add to your plate compared to the big reward of having a companion. We are fostering an older dog, she's 7. We love her to peices already. We're keeping her. We have earned her trust and she likes being with us. We love her, feed her, take her for walks and to do her business. She stays in the house for the most part and hangs out with us. She's happy and safe. That's about all a dog needs. Older dogs get left behind as many want puppies or younger dogs. Neither of us want the aggravation of puppy training. BTDT... This dog is trained, obedient, and chilled out. We make a good match.
    So if you foster one to test the waters or do a try and buy (which shelters will do) then you're most likely saving that dogs life. You don't have to have a perfect home or a perfect life. Just be the decent person you are. Really, that's all that matters. You might even find out that the dog is actually saving you, not the other way around. 😉

    I think you'll make a great pet parent!! 
    I agree, it's a really good way to go, to adopt an older pet. The two loves of my life have been older rescue kitties and we couldn't have loved each other more ♥️
    I do have thoughts about being cat free in the future so that I can travel more (if it's possible) but we'll see... I don't seem to last long without a cat... I start combing the streets to meet with them 😂

    My brother says I should get a dog as a puppy but I'm not going to do it.  I can train a dog and have trained them but I'm going to find one that's already trained.  The first week of next month I'm going to go to the shelters and I'll know when I find the one.  They want you to fill out an online application at the local shelters but I won't.  That's not how I do things.  On a day I feel good I will just wake up and go.

    I cook meat and fish on the grill outside. Even in the middle of winter. I just like doing it that way. I'm sure you can adapt it to your oven. I would not pan fry steak unless it is the really thin stuff.
    Here's some important lessons I've learned. The less you touch or mess with it the better it cooks. Sounds simple and silly but it works. DO NOT - poke holes in the meat or make slices into it. Leave it as 1 piece. Any poking and cutting just lets the heat and juices out. You don't want that. When I cook a burger it gets flipped once to even out both sides then a last time to drop the cheese on it for a minute. Steak gets turned once to even it out. That's it. I see no reason to not cook it the same way in the oven. You adjust the time before you flip it to the desired final way you want it. Well done, with meat, usually ruins it. It's called shoe leather. 😉  I usually do pink in the middle. So it's cooked more than enough to cover food poisening concerns but not so much you dry it out.
    If I grill tuna or pork chops I treat it much like a steak that cooks for less time. Whitefish I put into tin foil and test it by using the edge of a fork to see if the peices fall off with a little pressure.
    I keep the grill between 350-400 and get the best results.
    After reading lots of books on outdoor grilling I've come to that simple conclusion that less is more.

    Is it because they're trying to hide a flaw, or wrinkles, just don't know how to put it on right for their face?
    I'm kinda curious too. Done right makeup looks great and lets you gals get different looks depending on the color schemes you use. My gal goes easy most of the time and honestly I really like the Urban Decay makeup. They have some awesome colors.

    We are fostering a dog now. The intent is to adopt if it works out. Try being a foster if you need to do a test first.
    You can do it. I know you can.

    I love animals.  I don't have a pet yet.  It's getting close though.  I need to believe I can give that animal a good life.  I'm almost there.  I see next month as pet month.🐕
