Morning Kitty.  A little warmer here this morn, 43.  Brandy and I will probably head out about 8:30 AM.

I'm working on making the lawn level and rock free with a shovel and rake.

I have some gravel left over.  Will dig down to the foundation at one end of the house where water collects and fill it in with that gravel.

Hope your back isn't hurting to badly.

Have a good day.

Hi Ernie ~

Another beautiful day here.  Guess we could use rain.....but the perennials will now take care of themselves.  Finn's o.k.  His ear is thick again (not fluidy).  Guess I'll let the Vet know but I will not use the high dose of Prednisone on him!  Way too many repercussions from that!  Now, he's back on track with digestive issues.  I am trying to give him only his Costco food (salmon and potato).  

Morning chores await me......Having my tribe over for poke bowls (tuna and chicken) this Sunday.  Excited as our family has not gathered here forever......

Allergies abound and auto-immune hives have set in.  Lots of antihistamines and some added Prednisone.  So many thinks worse......

Dear Kitty ~

Oh my.  If only we could turn off that thing called a "brain" between our ears.   I do the same thing at night.  Often turn to my flower garden (in my head) and think of how I will plant in the Spring.  It helps...sometimes.

Suffering again from a bout of chronic hives....auto immune. Last time, ten year ago.  Pesky and frustrating.

Hope all is well.  Your surgery will be October.   

Hugs, Susan

Morning Kitty.  I woke at 3 and finally got up at 4, couldn't sleep.  Will get out on our walk early, Brandy won't mind.

Noticed she walks beside me through this one stretch now, she always walks 17 feet out in front unless smelling something.

I couldn't get her to walk on a 5 foot leach like the other pups.  She will turn 8 next month so getting older.

I hope your moving and setting up the house is fun for you.

I just got the pictures from the family I grew up in and there's a picture of one of our Christmas trees with the paper chains on it,

probably the 60s.

Have a good day.

Morning Susan.  I don't care if it rains now, biggest property projects are done, just trying to straighten out the lawn.

Sorry Finn is having ear problems, would be a big problem to have all the time.  Think he is 9 now.  I give Brandy Merrick Chicken

and rice.  Was giving them Foster and Smith but Express scripts bought them out for the prescription business and discontinued the food.

One of my daughters and grands will be over tonight for pizza, always fun.

Getting warm for now but Fall returns next week.

Have a good day.

Morning Kitty.  Warmer morning 52.  Still trying to straighten out the lawn.  Probably plant grass seed for next week's rain.

Had pizza with daughter and grands last eve.  Great time except Brandy and their new Border Collie trying to get along.

She is still a puppy and nips at Brandy's legs if she can get away with it.

Hope the hearing test went well.  My hearing isn't that great but don't remember the last test.

Enjoy the nice day.

we are expecting to get up to 80 today.....hope it happens.....I think anyway....our closing date has moved up to Sept. 30  so maybe the floors and painting will be done so that we can move in mid Oct....I would be into 2 wks after surgery so that would be good....and.....my hearing test.....?  I passed with flying colors  the tester was very impressed.....considering that I am a little old lady...LOL....and this morning I twisted my ankle....just to add to the "fun".....

Have a good day.
