Our Sweet Lucy...



An unscheduled trip to the vet today.
Lucy was having a problem with her hind legs seeming weak and her back seemed to be humped a bit.  This happened overnight. No falls or accidents
The X rays and blood work showed nothing.  At least no ruptured disks.  The doctor said it could be her age (11) and something as simple as her sitting up for a treat.  She'll be on steroids and pepcid for 15 days .
The hard part will be keeping her from jumping and running and going up and down stairs.
Oh and picking her up to put her on the bed and taking her off the bed.  I placed folded quilts on the floor next to the bed for her to lay on because I'm afraid I may fall asleep and she will jump off the bed. But she's sitting there staring at me.
Goodnight Lucy




Also thanks Ladies for all your suggestions on coffee makers...
need to hit the mall to take a look at them.

New Coffee Design on the Website

Unfortunately, I am using my little ruby red coffee maker
from the Workshop this morning, as I have buried another Cuisinart
...that was not even a year old.
Does anyone a a recommendation for a coffee maker?

Opening Day...No Zoo for You!

Yesterday was the Baltimore Orioles opening day. 
We had the grandlittles for the day
as our daughter was going to the game with her cousin. 
Our plans were to take the children to the zoo like we did last year.
However the weather was cold and drizzly off and on...

not the greatest day for strolling through the zoo.

So we bounced instead....

After that we went to DQ for ice cream...

Unfortunately, The Birds lost the game...big time.
Don't think the Bouncy Place or the Dairy Queen could have made
the players feel better after that game.

Have lots to do today...
Lucy needs a bath and a haircut
and it may be warm enough to get some yard work done.

Happy Saturday!

Remember to "Count Your Blessings"



 Sometimes each of us need to be reminded to
"Count Your Blessings"
This is hanging over the windows in our kitchen
and the 4x30 inch size would also fit perfectly over a door or mantle.
We will be adding more of these family/inspirational saying signs on the website.

The Weekend...


Did you know if you plant jellybeans...


you grow Poofy Pops?


 We had fun with our darlin' grands...
coloring eggs 


 and having an Easter Egg hunt.




We decided on dinner at Friendly Farms,
a local family style restaurant,
with 20+ family members.
A good decision...I didn't have to cook.
