Today is quiet. Just me and the dogs. I haven't gotten dressed yet, but when I do we will take a nice walk.
Chops, it sounds like a full house last week, bet it is so nice and peaceful now for you

Lovely that you had your grandsons for a while though, as tiring as it must be, bet you loved every minute of it

When my mum used to look after my 2 nephews for the weekend, she used the say the same thing "I'm too old for this" but she loved it really

I've been sitting outside on the new storage bench TB put together on Saturday, talking to my upstairs neighbour, watching Violet check out her territory and enjoying my new solar kaleidoscope lights. I will try to get a photo of them tomorrow night. My camera batteries are charging.

It is so peaceful and beautiful here. I need to take advantage of it more often.

Well, I just need to make TB's lunch for tomorrow and then it is bedtime.

The two handymen only arrived at near enough the same time

One came about 30 minutes earlier, good on him!

Anyway, we got 2 quotes, one better than the other...just waiting on one more quote this week and then we will decide

Time to go and watch some Masterchef now

Shrek is used daily, ask him, he'll tell you all about it. But Aunt Bea is sure funny!

As for mashugana, I think we all have a touch of that.

I'm sitting here trying to get up the courage to call the vet. Violet is in a lot of pain in her hips and her breathing is shallow. She won't get off her bed to go outside or eat. I don't want to see her suffer of course, but flashes of Joie are going through my head - I can't lose them both in such a short period of time.

I am sure she will be okay, but she is my baby. Wish me luck everyone.

I know it's hard, Laurie, but she's depending on you to take care of her. We're going to go through this pretty soon with our 13-year-old black Lab. Be strong.

(((Hugs))) and (((gentle hugs))) to Violet. Good luck at the vet. I hope Violet feels much better soon.
