Middle Of The NIght

It is 1:27 am what the heck am I doing up.  Cindy and I am going out today to find some things to decorate the house with.

I have to tell you my dog was out in the yard yesterday with her leash on.  She was running back and forth with the leash trailing her. Suddenly she stopped, grabbed the handle of the leash, and took off running around the yard.  We later walked a block up Meadowlawn and visited with Mr. Murphy.  This was why I wanted a dog in the first place to make me get out and walk.  We did spend a little time in the swing together also.

I think I am up because I have lost two acquaintances  in the last month.  This does bother me greatly. I question my decisions the last few months also.

Yesterday I received two books to add to my collection. One was by V.C. Andrews House Of Secrets.  This was one of my favorite authors many years ago so I thought I pick up something recent by her.

I also bought  Cassandra Clare’s The Red Scrolls Of Magic (book one).  This should keep me busy once I finish what I’m reading now.

Well it is 2:05 am and I’m getting a slight chill so I think I’ll go climb back in my nice comfy bed for another few hours.  I’m looking forward to spending time with my daughter today ( she works so much).

Have a good day and I’ll visit later.


Busy Sunday

My day stated at 7am with the stripping of my bedroom. My dog has Giardia a one celled parasitic species.  This called for stripping  everything, spraying the room and every thing in it with Lysol. and starting the rounds of washing.

The stripping

I have one load in the dryer, one in the washer. and bedding waiting to go in.  In the meantime I have cleaned Spirit’s cage, swept my bedroom, started the dishes, had the dog outside twice .  She is in her cage right now and I will be keeping her in it at night.  I have fed the zoo except Libby.   I gave Honey her medicine also.  ( I took mine too).

I have been outside with Honey but it is cold out there so we don’t stay long.  I have folded the laundry from last night and am going to make myself an egg for breakfast.

I pulled out the first load of laundry from the dryer to put away. The second load went in the dryer, then the blanket from my bed in the  washer.  I fried a stirred up egg in butter and gummed it down.  Yummy!  Hey it is coming together!  I debated cleaning the oven but decided I had enough pots boiling for today.

Now I’m signing off and I’ll try to bring this all together.  Have a good cay.


Almost May!

Outside this morning.

In the front by the seeps.

The Forsythia on the right side of the house is starting to bloom.]

I do love the plants around the house coming alive.  Even the Bleeding Heart plants have leaves showing.

We do need the yard mowed because Honey is looking a snow plow getting around out there.

On the back porch the goose is now looking like a floppy eared rabbit.

Well the mouth is still sore and I have to remember that gumming is still necessary.  Oh well such is life.

Honey has an infection but I have medicine for her ( thanks to Cindy)  and started that today.  I sometimes think I’m too old for this kind of sh**.

It is 43  mostly sunny but with a wind to bring out the goosebumps.

Well I have some reading t do on Honey’s medication, plus pick up my prescriptions this afternoon.

The zoo all except for Libby has been fed this morning,  I have swept my bedroom because my sweet Honey found some cardboard to chew up.  I know Cindy said puppies chew but it is a pain keeping up with the clean up.   It is a good thing I love that dog or I would lock her in an empty room.

A Happy Birthday to my friend Edna and may she have many more.

I hope you you have a great weekend and to all the Mothers out there a big hug  for us!!!


The 24th

Good afternoon.  Well Honey and I took our first walk today.  It was only 1/2 of a block but it  is a start.   For her it was a time to smell what the world outside her gate was like.  I well increase the distance a little at a time.  We also sat on the swing for a few minutes and she seemed to enjoy that also.  I’m going to have to have Chris come and mow because it is getting high enough for Honey to have to plow through it.

Just a short rest after our adventure.

As for me I’m surviving on things  I don’t have to chew.  It will a little less than a month before I will get get the impression for my lower denture.

Cindy and I have pretty well cleared away the decor for Easter but haven’t settled on what the  new theme will be.

On Easter Darlene and Micheal joined us for dinner.

Micheal and Darlene

With Micheal’s help it was Lasagna, and garlic bread. They also brought deviled eggs.

Our dessert was this cake.

It was a pleasant visit with Cindy, David, Darlene, and Micheal playing Rotten Apples While I rested afterward.  I just haven’t build up the stamina I need yet.

I’m  still working on Cassandra Clare’s Lord Of Shadows. About half way through it.

Outside is 58 degrees with a high of 60 was expected.

I think I’ll slip a little  nap now that no one else is up.  Have a great rest of the day.




Easter Sunday

This is my Happy Easter wish to you all.  Cindy and I have been preparing for company later today.   Michel and Darlene will be in  for supper.  We will have Lasagna, deviled eggs, garlic toast, and a desert.

Right now it is 51 degrees with a high around 66 degrees at at 5 pm.  The sun is shining brightly with fluffy clouds barely moving across the sky.

As for me I am sitting here with no teeth,  Still  little pain in the lower jaw.  But things promise to be better in a few weeks.

But If I look down and see Honey  every thing Is suddenly all better.  Have a Happy Easter.









Whats New!

Good afternoon.  I would like to introduce the new member of the family.

This is Honi.. She is a Yorkie/Havanese

She was born in January.

Very affectionate, beginning to get used the bedroom and living room.  She goes out on a leash right now because she could slip under the gate.  Our zoo is slowly getting used to her.

Today I went to the dentist and had the rest of my lower teeth removed.  Some were beginning to chip.  I was experiencing some pain.  1 1/2 hours later they were out.  I will be getting a lower denture in a few weeks.  There was some infection so I figured it was time to fix that. At my age I don’t want the risk of infection.  One good thing no more pain and I don’t have to buy more tooth paste!  Other than the stitches  and a little pain  ( I know I sound like I’m falling apart) I should be fine soon.



A Visit Today.

I stand corrected I just learned they still haven’t decided on who will get the dog in the  shelter.  Maybe tomorrow there will be a decidicion.  Another hurry up and wait.  I really hate that. But I can only wait for their decision.

I visited my niece in rehab today.  She knew me and as happy to see me.  Her husband Jim drove me down.  Thank you Jim.

Well I have a few things to do so this is a short one.  Have a good evening!

The Loser!

That is me!   I didn’t get the dog.  It seems these last few days all my hopes have crashed and burned.  I know it wasn’t to be and there is a good reason for it.  But for the life of me I can’t figure out what it is.

It is raining right now and it won’t clear up until after 3pm.  It is supposed to get up to 60 today.

Well Onyx just turned on Alexa so I had to turn it off.

I picked up Clare’s Lord Of Shadows  last night and read to page131.  I’ll read some more this afternoon.  It is almost the weekend and I still have  the Sunday papers to read.

On the duties today–I have started the laundry, adding the bath mats, have the dishwasher running, need to scrub the bath tub, sweep my bedroom, and feed the zoo.

There is nothing on my “social calendar” as I call it so I’m clear to do what the heck I want to do when the daily duties are taken care of.  Cindy is working (as usual).  David was up most of the night so he and Libby are sleeping.

Well I think I’ll put on a ‘happy face’ as they say and hustle my bustle around here.

Have a great day and a better weekend.



Where We Are At.

Wow Have I got news for you.  First my visit to the doctor who is monitoring the semi blockage between my stomach and intestines.   Nothing has changed since last year.  That was very good news.

This is Erin’s new cage.

More room to get around in and he is a bit over whelmed I think.

This is the flag that out in front right now.

The bunny is still on the back porch.  Also I added this.

I dressed the goose as an Easter egg.

You Know how you start out to do one thing and ended up doing something else.  Well I went out front to get the trash cart and bring it back in when I noticed trash up and down the grass around the sidewalk and down on the side of the road.

The next thing I did was clean it all up and dump in the trash cart.

I didn’t set out to do it but I felt I needed to neaten it up.

Next it was check on the Lilac bushes on each side of the gate..  This is on the left side’

This on the right side.

Both are showing Spring growth.

I’m am waiting to see If there will be a new baby in the household.  We have a request in for a recuse Pekense for me.  I want a dog to walk with me.  She is 1 year and i month old.  Her name is Jessica.  If she and Libby get along she will come home with me.

Well I finished Lady Midnight and started Cassandra Clare’s Lord Of The Shadows.  I have read the first 100 pages and have been carrying it with me to my appointments.

So with my health, my possibly getting my dog, and my general  attitude I’m so happy I’m close to tears.  ( I don’t know if I deserve this or not but I’ll take it gladly.)

I know there is something else I’m supposed to write about but I’ll be back.

Have a good rest of the week ad do something to make you happy!





To Tell The Tale!

It was quite a weekend for me.  On Friday night Cindy and David took me to see Capital Marvel.  It was a good movie with many special effects. I enjoyed it greatly. Then yesterday Les and Anne took me to see Shazam. I certainly got my fill of superheros and special effects.  Thank you to both sets of family for taking me.

I’m am almost finished with Cassandra Clare’s Lady Midnight  then I will move on to her Lord  Of The Shadows.  It is a Shadowhunters novel also.

Tomorrow is my appointment  with the Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Doctor.  As you  know I have a semi blockage but I can’t have surgery because of my age.  The appointment tomorrow is to see if the blockage is any worse or has stayed the same.  Hey I’m 84 and Shit happens!  Besides i want to get a puppy to walk with me but I have to make sure I’ll be around.  Fingers are crossed hoping me and my puppy will be trodding the side streets next week.  David has said he will train the puppy for me.  I’m hopeful this be be a reality!!

I’ll be around after tomorrow to let you know how it went.  Stay tuned for another episode of The old broad and her dog!!!!!!!
