My online college courses working hard trying to get my papers completed before we leave on vacation! So it's been double the work! Today the girls and I were at the park with our neighbors all day! We packed a picnic lunch and had a great day! We also came home met Jerry and headed right back out to the vets to get Sally rechecked.
Looking perkier isn't she? The vet is very happy with how she is responding to her meds although she's losing weight even though she's eating a lot. So even though she's not out of the woods we have borrowed time and I'll take all I can get!!! We love this dog soooo much!!!
The girls have been good about me studying and stay entertained during the day while I work on papers. Hayley pulled out her scrap booking stuff and was working on it outside my den.
We've also been taking time to watch our garden grow and produce yummy foods! Today we found cucumbers ready to pick!
I had Kathleen stand in the garden so you can see how tall our plants have gotten!
Not quite ready to pick yet though :-( But when they are I'll be busy!!
We feel blessed our garden is doing so well and saving us money!!
The dogs like our garden too, they like to guard the gate and have us play ball before we can get in! LOL
Owen just hangs out in the yard and waits to play with the girls.....
These are some of my favorite shots of the girls running and playing in the yard!
They are just having a grand time! :-)
They also have been enjoying quiet time reading for the local library program.
Over the weekend when we were out and stopped to get gas we spotted this antique ambulance from World War 2!! Jerry took time to talk to the guy who said he had it shipped from overseas! It was in mint condition and he was more than happy to let us take pictures of it!
We all thought it was pretty cool and boy if it could talk and tell some stories.....
The girls also wanted to camp out for 4th of July since we had to cancel our travel plans with Sally's condition. So we set up a little tent in the backyard. Usually Sally sleeps in there too...
But once she got in and saw there was very little room she turned around walked out went to the porch and looked at me like"come on mom"
Did I mention how much I LOVE this dog?.....
So it was getting too late to cook smores the "traditional" way so we decided to cook them over the stove burners! LOL
The girls still had a blast!
Look at the size of that marshmallow! LOL And now they even make the small flat ones to fit the smores perfectly! Talk about convenience! :-)
Hayley always being silly! LOL!
So then they slept outside with the 3 little dogs....Since Sally and I determined there was not enough room we hung out in the air conditioning for the night :-)
It was funny the other two dogs moved around so much that Jerry ended up with paw prints all over his shirt the next morning! LOL
Then tonight is where the snake comes into play..... walking out our front door we found this....
Jerry is laughing because even though he only found the skin on my front porch, Hayley tickled my leg while I was taking the picture and screamed there it is! Little stinker made me jump!!!
O.k. seriously this is NOT funny! About 2 years ago Kathleen walked down the stairs before me one morning. She said "Mommy a snake!" Well I didn't have my glasses on yet and I thought she was tricking me and had their plastic toy snake down in my foyer.....um no....when I got close I realized it was bigger and it was coiled and it was REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!! I screamed so loud I scared Kathleen! I told her to go back upstairs! I grabbed the phone and told Jerry he had to come home from work and get this snake! And how in the heck did it get in my house??????????? So for awhile while I waited it stayed there, then it proceeded to go in my den!! I was so freaked out! Luckily Jerry got there are caught him and took him outside...a copperhead....ugh! Again how did he get in my house? So now we find this skin and no snake??? WHERE IS THE SNAKE???????????
So onto happier things.....I have these totes ready:
Along with my planning folder that holds a notebook with all my notes....
And tomorrow I will doing a post on planning and preparing to go away on vacation!!!
I'm off to visit you guys since I finished my papers tonight! Whoohoo! I still have my discussion board postings, but the hard part is done!
