But Here It Is

Wednesday crept up slowly behind me.

I knew it was coming, but did not expect it,

but here it is.

Isn’t it funny how that happens?

Being distracted can be a blessing and a curse.


Yesterday, My Larry and I gave in….

instead of having a special Tuesday Dinner and Movie,

we ate Mexican food in bed and watched the movie Frida.

Larry had never seen it. I have seen it a few times.

{will explain later why I wanted him to see it now}

He liked the movie very much.


Libby slept, front and center, during dinner and a movie.

Frida did not impress her in the least.

We heard from Libby’s Dr yesterday.

Dr S said, that Libby is experiencing kidney failure.

Her kidney failure numbers are high,{from Monday’s blood work}

but Libby is eating, wetting, drinking water

and all things old girl puppies do on a regular basis.

We have another appointment with Dr S today.

Larry and I will leave Libby at home and visit with the DR.


Thank you for the sweet comments here on Blog.

Your thoughts and support means the world to both Larry and myself.

{ I read all notes and messages out loud to him}

Last night, Larry was standing in the bedroom doorway.

He was holding Libby in his arms and said:

This is why 16 years ago I told you, no more dogs.

He smiled and then said:

I am sure glad that you did not listen to me.

I am glad that it  is Wednesday.

Love you beyond the blessings known as our pets.


It Felt Beautiful

Sunday, Dinner and Movie was postponed. Again.

I was ready to try this new recipe


to be honest, disappointed that dinner did not happen.

Yesterday morning, Libby fell out of the big bed.

She has fallen out one or twice over the years

but has never hurt herself.

Yesterday, she was hurt and had to go see her DR.

Libby has nothing broken and is on pain pills.

While Dr S was checking Libby out, she noticed Libby’s breath.

They are doing tests on her kidneys today.

I could just cry.


I took loopy-Libby out to wet this morning

and the garden was damp from the spring rain.

It felt beautiful.


Yesterday, when My Larry bought the mail in,

he handed me a package and said: Happy Birthday!

I said: What?  My birthday is not till June.

He said: If I give this to you now, I have an excuse to get you something else.

This yarn and pattern was on my Elfster Wish List

and he bought it for me!  I am going to start it today!

{knitting always relaxes me and “centers” me}

Larry, Thank you!

I love you beyond Kitterly {the yarn shop}


I love you beyond the moon.
