Meet Mr. Stubbs & Snickers

Well our resolve at no more dogs, can't afford it and all that flew out the window.  These two were given up last November to the humane society when a lady remarried after her 1st husband's death.  The new husband wanted nothing to do with them so they were sent away.  They are 5 year old brothers.  We really need to work on Snickers weight.  He is the red one.

Banana banana bread, stitching and silliness

I tried a new banana bread recipe they call banana banana bread. Let me tell you it is wonderful! It has almost twice the usual amount of bananas in it and it is moist and oh so good! here is the link so you can try it out. Banana banana bread
Here is the progress on Rainbow Bridge.  I am getting ready to take a break from it and stitch up a piece for someone.
Just had to have some fun! I dare not work at tearing out the carpet in the bedroom without some kind of protection! My allergies would get even big time. but I really want to know if this mask makes me look fat? LOL!
Okay that is enough from me for now!  God bless and huggles!

Coming back

It has been to difficult to post the last several days but I am doing so, so much better.  I want to share this video with you today.  We sang it in church and what a glorious thought.

What a day.

BIG ice-cycles on the chicken wire next to the carport this morning.
I think they are kinda neato!
Bennie loves to nap on Jack when Jack has to lay down because of his legs.
Bennie and our friend Sue.  Sue and her husband George are owned by 5 doxies.

George, Sue Bennie and Jennifer behind.
It is hard, but I am still working on Rainbow Bridge.  We took Katie's body to Springfield to be cremated.  It was not an easy trip and made her death so final.  God bless and huggles all.

Good Bye Miss Bug

Our Miss Katie-Bug passed away early this morning. I knew yesterday that she wasn't going to make it but I didn't want to admit it. She had completely quit eating and her breathing was rapid and labored and she was weak in her hindend. She wanted lots of tummy rubs and was trying so hard to be silly. I caught her looking at all of us in a way that is like she was trying to memorize our faces. Bennie stuck closer to her than usual and gave extra kisses. Last night at bedtime I noticed she felt cool to the touch not like being cold from being outside or anything. She loved on both of us a lot and wanted tummy rubs. Before she went to the foot of the bed, she kept touching my face with her nose and she has never done that. Jack woke at a quarter til five to find she had left the bed. He discovered her on the sofa. Apparently the pneumonia was to much for her. Katie was only about 8 or 9 years old. Our hearts are broken. Bennie is a bit lost as well and missing her.

A finish and a little visit

Blue Moon Angel is finally done and I really like how it came out! I am back to working on rainbow Bridge and haven't started another project yet, but I will!
This is a peek at the bedroom paint color and wallpaper border. We are nearly done in there.

Isn't this sweet? Katie became very ill Sunday. She had a slight cough since Thursday and it suddenly grew into something scary and awful yesterday. The vet honestly didn't know if she would live through the night. Come to find out, Bennie brought bronchial pneumonia with him. He never had more than a bit of a cough and is pretty much over it but poor Katie was hit hard. She has to take 4 medicines including lac-ix generic to get rid of all the fluid on her lungs. She did eat a little bit tonight for the first time since Saturday. Anyway, some of her friends on dogster made this for her. I thought that was so sweet.

So God bless and huggles until next time.
