We had a little scare today, even though I don’t have Sven yet, he had to go to the vet because he had a rectal prolapse. Super scary for a young puppy. The owner of the puppy said that if he needed surgery they would have kept him, understandably so but thankfully he made a full recovery and should be fine. They put him on a soft diet for the next few days.
So that was a close call. I’m looking forward to getting him. I’m getting ready and surprisingly I need a-lot of things to keep him safe and happy.
Happy New Year! I can’t even believe it’s a new year already! I have to admit time does fly by fast and I always try to have the best day ever. Of course some days are better than others, especially in my job but I literally stay calm about almost everything, probably not a good trait. True story, if my customers don’t fit my happy mold I can’t work with them. I was pretty picky when I was younger and my boss didn’t like my theory but it worked for me! Even in major problems at work that I normally can fix, I try to put a spin on it to calm customers down and to lighten the mood. Some would say I’m to laid back.
Do you make New Year resolutions? I do not. I would just set myself up for failure!
It’s been very busy the past few weeks here! Right after Thanksgiving, my partner and I went to Grand Cayman for 12 days and unfortunately I was sick most of the trip. It’s a good place to rest and sit in the sun compared to the freezing temperatures in New England. You all remember all the problems with my 1730 farmhouse, well the day we left on vacation the septic overflowed in the unfinished very old basement and thankfully my son helped with that but we had to have it fixed when we got home. Not once but twice!
Christmas was super nice, we had Christmas Eve at my house. It was nice just getting together with family. My daughter bought me a puppy, it’s a Yorkie and I’ll get him on January 17. His name is Sven. My partner is not happy at all about this new addition but I’m sure Sven will win him over.
Incase your wondering, how’s Arlo? He’s living his best life with his Mom and Dad in their new home!
Today is an easy day for me, I’m going to my daughters to celebrate Thanksgiving! I really like passing the torch off to her! She is have 30 people and it will be very busy but I think they have it under control! Thanksgiving if one of my favorite holidays but I really do not like to cook. I never have and I totally prefer to eat out but I don’t do that very often either! I would rather decorate. That’s my happy place!
Luna, why do they call the Lunar Eclipse the blood moon? That’s a great question, I’m not even sure why. I guess it’s the unscientific name for a total lunar eclipse. This is when the Earth passes in between the sun and the moon. This will cast a shadow over the moon as sunlight is blocked. Whew, that’s just crazy!
Lunas’ only wish is not to be called the blood cat. That’s not a name she would like and who can blame her!
I am definitely a country girl that loves to garden, quilt, preserve, hunt, and read. I love my family more than anything in the world. I live with my husband of fifty years. We have a son, daughter, granddaughter and grandson. We live on a 500+ acre farm in Virginia with about 75 cows & bulls, thirty chickens, and three dogs.
This site is about my life as a farmgirl, wife, mother and grandmother. We have a beautiful granddaughter and the cutest grandson. We own two farms in Craig County Virginia, leasing one and raising beef cattle on the other.
