Hello February

Hello and happy Sunday and first weekend in February. Wow I hear people saying they thought January lasted forever but I think it went by unbelievably fast.

A few of my favorite things from this past month include several books I read or listened to through the Libby app. If you have a local library card you can read books online through Libby. There are thousands of books available instantly for whatever device you choose to use. I love using this app. These are the books I read or listened to in January.

I am really picky about what I can listen to when it comes to a book and the readers. The first two books, The Secret to Southern Charm and The Southern Side of Paradise are a series. These are two and three. I have a hold for the first one. These are audible and the reader is trying to use a southern accent and it is pretty bad. But the story line is good and it kept me interested.

This past week has been much calmer than last week EXCEPT the babies. It’s Molly and Scruffy this time. Molly is our old girl and she came to us almost fifteen years ago. When we got her, her tail had been mostly cut off. I think she was a hunting dog hopeful for someone and she just didn’t fit the bill and they dumped her.

A few weeks ago we noticed when Molly was walking through the house she sometimes left spots of blood behind her. We finally figured out it was coming from her tail. For some reason she had been chewing on the middle of her tail, or what’s left of her tail. There’s lot of blood veins that run through a dog’s tail. The vet told us this is a very tough skin and it is very hard to chew through but she did it. No sign of fleas or allergies, she gets an allergy shot regularly. No tumor in that area so are really unsure why she started chewing on it the way she did. A couple of times she bled so much it looked like she was going to bleed out. This may be my mama overactive imagination running wild but it was freaking scary. And the tear was infected. We had to dress the cut twice a day and wrap it with tape or we had to have her wear the cone of shame while it got some air. It was a nightmare. I slept in the recliner one night because I was so scared she was going to rip it back open. So we have been dealing with this for about a month. It is not healing as quick as our vet would like so they have put her on a higher dose of antibiotics. So far she is doing much better.

Then there is Scruffy. Something is going on with him and it scares me really bad and I am not going to say a lot about it until we get some testing. He is having some episodes similar to seizures but not losing conscious. Anyway it scares the crap out of me and I can’t even think of him not being o.k.so that is all I can say right now. I will keep you posted.

Work has been fairly easy. We are still in the slow season. I did have a bit of catching up to do after being out for our trip to Cocoa Beach but fortunately I had a bit of time to work while I was down there because of all the rain we had. Take the good with the bad I say.

I finally finished all the little hearts I was working on. I sewed up two different sizes in different fabrics. My idea was to put them in a jar. But when I put them in the jar I just wasn’t pleased with how they looked. I finally put them in a big clear vase I bought at the thrift store for $3.00 and I was pretty pleased with it.

After I sewed all the hearts I had a hard time deciding what to put them in. I found this vase at the thrift store for $3.00. I love the way it turned out.
I did this one for my niece for her Birthday. Don’t you just love the Pioneer Woman place mats. I love the colors.

After a week of dreary cold cloudy days the weekend was filled with sunshine. The temps were still pretty cold but the sunshine made up for it. I just had to get out with the babies both days and get some much needed walks and vitamin C.

Sunshine, beautiful sunshine!!! Where have you been???

So how was your weekend?

  1. That is so pretty. I love all the different colors in the clear vase. What a cool idea. Poor Molly. We are having some health issues with our furry family members too and it just breaks my heart. Right now Arizona has a shortage of veterinarians. It takes awhile to get an appointment to our vet’s. One client had to drive three hours to see our vet because in her town they don’t have a vet available that she trust.

    1. Wow. I never thought of a vet shortage. I feel so lucky that my vet is only 10 minutes away and can usually work us in within a day or two. They do not have after hours care and then we would have to drive about an hour. So hard to see our fur babies in pain. I just can’t bear it.
