We had storms for two hours this morning,
when we actually expected them this evening, so
I did not get out to the old house to finish the garden bed today.
Tomorrow, Keith and I go to the VA for his weekly appointment... I'm
going just in case he should be admitted again.
We don't anticipate that.
(Neither did we last week!)
For three weeks last month, I had the privilege of
taking care of a litter of English Pointer puppies belonging to a
friend of mine, who lives about 2 miles from us.
I would go over at 4 daily, let Mama out for exercise, then
bring her back in to be with her babies at first... and then to
let them nurse in weeks two and three. I had not seen
them for almost two weeks until today, and I am
going both today and tomorrow to feed the babies at noon and
let them out in their outdoor kennel for exercise.
The three girls are at the front, and the big boy at the back in this picture.
Three are destined for show homes... and one for a pet home, to another
These little guys have helped me to start getting over Abby's loss...
it has been such a pleasure taking care of them.
They have gone from unable to see... to being bundles of energy... and they are so
inquisitive and fun!
Here's our living room right now... and you are seeing the new couch and "chair and a half" that
came today. We turned the kitchen table east/west instead of north/south... it works MUCH better... and looks good.
We still need a side table and a lamp, and some sort of coffee table.
Can you believe I have NEVER had brand new furniture like this? (Except for our beds.)
Thank you, Honey!
