Different Stuff Today

Hi dear friends, the first picture is a sweet little girl's school picture isn't it?? That little girl is NOT a little girl any more!! She is celebrating her 27th birthday today!! My Grand-Daughter is 27 year old!!! It is hard for me to believe even tho I know it!!!
Then my sweet Bambi, waiting for dinner to get ready so she can share (my) dinner with her!! She loves dinner time. When Tom can 28 and a half years ago he didn't like me feeding Bruce from the table but I do that with all my dogs b/c I love them so much and want to share what I have with them!! Do you see the bandage on her right foot?? It is hard to see. She got a bobo on her foot!! Nothing serious!!!
My Japanese Magnolia tree!! Saturday's post has a prettier picture of the tree on it!!! This tree went from dormant to full bloom in just 4 days!!! They are sososo beautiful, but the blooms don't last but a few days. The blooms came out on Friday. I took the pictures of it on Saturday!! Today is, day three for the blooms to be out. Tonight it is going to rain (they say) if it dose the blooms will fall off!! If it doesn't rain some of the blooms will stay on for another day!! They are starting to fall off already!! It is too bad they don't keep their blooms longer they are so pretty!!

I need to stop all one day soon and delete a bunch of stuff off the computer b/c it is so so so slow now it takes hours to make a comment on your blog but I'll try. Please know I am trying!!

Missed Monday Memories so I'll do it on Tues.

My yesterdays family. Look at Joker smiling with Tom!!! All three of these dogs were so very special. I had them to short of a time. Amanda whippet lived until she was 10 years and 4 months. Joker was 12 and 3 months when I lost him. Both dogs died of kidney failure. When Amanda was diagnosed the vet said there was nothing I could do to help her!!! He was so so wrong!! With Joker I did not recognize any symptoms and he really had very little but he did have a couple that I should have seen.
Bruce got cancer when he was only 6 years old and we lost him before he made 7.
Much to short of time with these wonderful dogs. That is why I am cooking all Bambi's food now so I can keep her going longer!!!! It is a lot of extra work but they are so worth it!!!!
I would have done it for them if I had known that it would help so much!!!

I love my comments!!

I got my new glasses last night!!

Hi Friends, I got the coveted glasses!! I can see the computer screen!!! They are not as good as I had hoped!! BUT I can see the screen!! When my eyes were tested he said that this was about as good as it was ever going to be!!!! So I was hoping for better!!
My Dad was almost blind before he died too. He couldn't read things, couldn't drive. I already can't drive. Thank God I can still see well enough to be on the computer!!!! I would die if I couldn't talk with you!!!!!

Sunday 2-13- 11

Hi friends, quilts and what I am hoping for,, this years garden will be as good or even better then last. We are going to grow more variety for vegetables this spring. Some of our tomatoes are coming up in their little pots. Some of our basil is coming up. Our cayenne seeds have not come up yet. Just planted bell pepper seeds today. We start almost everything in the house under a plant table Tom built years and years ago. The table has grow lights and everything!!

The quilts are quilts that I saw in Paducah Kentucky all the way back in 99. Quilts that I liked very much!!

A Story

Hey Friends, I feel like talking about dogs today. I have been thinking a lot about what I am going to do about not having a dog!! Bambi is 13 years and 4 months old. I am happy to say she is doing very well. I know tho it is only a matter of time......... The vet said the last time he saw her it would not surprise him if she made it to 15 years old. For me that is not a long time. Tom is already talking about what kind of dog he wants when she gos. When I lose a dog I go into a deep depression!!!!!! I can't just go out and rescue another dog right away. I feel like that is being untrue to my last dog and I know that is crazy!!!!!!!! But that is how I feel..........
Tell me about how you feel when you lose a dog please. Or a cat if you are a cat person.

The flower is a Camellia for those who didn't know. They are a flowering shrub that blooms in the winter if the temperature stays above freezing. I have about 30 of the shrubs on our land.
They have had a hard time blooming this year and last b/c of so much cold weather. But when it stays above freezing they will come out and are so beautiful!!!

Hey blog friends, I am back and nothing in this last 5 days has gone the way it was suppose to go!!!!
First Tom said he was going to make an appointment for me to get new glasses Wednesday. Tuesday I ask Tom what time my appointment was?? He said he had forgotten to make the appointment until that morning so it was on Friday now at 4 PM. So I wait some more!! Today we were there at 4 PM. They checked me all out. My eyes are in very good condition for my age. The only problem was the same one I have had all my life.... I can't see well !!!!
I was hoping to have new glasses by today. I don't have them !! They have to have them specially made so I will not get them for probably another week!!!

I didn't use the computer for the days ahead of my eye test b/c I have to use so much magnification to see the puter it causes a lot of eye strain. I didn't want my eyes to be tested while I had spent 4 or 5 hours a day on the computer everyday. I wanted to rest my eyes before the eye test. That was why I was away for you all!!! I had hoped to come back with new glasses but NO I have to wait until someone makes them!!

I have not been to my blog yet I just went straight to new post. I'll be answering comment tomorrow and there after. Thanks for your visits to my Blog!!!!! I really love you all and cherish your friendship.

Love coming your way, Bambi & Fern
