I have decided to leave some dead roses there just to look pretty when they become small rosehips (they are wild roses, so they are quite small).

I guess you save yours? What do you make with them?

I like to make elderberry cordial and have a good recipe for that.
I don't have a source of rosehips, other than dried ones from the health food store. I make tea. Rosehip and hibiscus makes the best, prettiest iced-tea.

We have to go to our favorite pizza joint regularly and for ice cream.

Then there's Grampy's nap time...
The most important item on that list!

I'm frantically downloading all the updates for all my devices. Verizon is a pain in the rear, but sadly, it's all we can get out here. My Verizon plan will reset at midnight tomorrow, and since they canceled my unlimited bandwidth, I'm gonna use up every smidge of what I pay outrageous prices for!

Got to see the pictures and videos last night of my grandson's wedding in Copenhagen, Denmark. Beautiful. I sure wish we could have been there. They said that everyone they met there was super nice and very friendly. All of the shops and restaurants where they went, everyone spoke English. They loved all of the food and all of the different kinds of beers. I am sittting here eating some kind of white divinity candy with walnuts they brought for me. Very good.

A little after 10PM here, and just came in from sitting out on the patio on this beautiful evening having a glass of wine, and playing on my laptop. Porch light on and candles burning. So quiet, nothing but crickets chirping and Kitty laying on the table purring. I saw something out of the corner of my eye, about the time I realized it was a 3 inch scorpion, I got up and the creepy sonofagun chased me! Kitty jumped down and nailed him. Yikes. Time to call the bug guy.

Right now I am sitting here trying to catch up on DC. I've been gone for a short while but a dear friend suggested I come back and give it another chance.

It can't hurt as right now I am trying to put the pieces back together that fell apart on Tuesday when my perfect little doxie Zipper died.

I - and my husband - have huge holes in our hearts and lives right now. We did not know he was sick. I'm not sure if it would have made it any better.

I brought his ashes home yesterday. He is now on top of the fireplace which seems very appropriate as it was his favorite place to be .. well other than in front of his food bowl.

So perhaps a return to DC will help.

RIP Zipper and my condolences Mr & Mrs LMB. Losing our furbabies is hard.
