More Sara

Since she was a bottle baby, she still likes to nurse on a finger, it's a social thing for her. She'll hold your finger with both paws, suck on it for a bit, then fall asleep in your lap.


Early snow, I wish....

It pours sometimes

But thankfully it's plenty warm! The hot water heater just sprang a leak....I'm very grateful that it happened now and not in the middle of the winter.
Last time this happened we did the camp shower thing, and we can again.

Guess I better get my orders caught up & do a "water heater sale" on Etsy!!

Sign of the times

We ran an ad in the local newspaper for our puppies and so far four have gone to good homes...we're really happy with everyone who got one.

The best was a mother and son, he was probably about 12. They looked at all the wiggling pups and he thought for about thirty seconds and pointed at Peepers.
They left briefly to go to the ATM, and when he came back and picked up the pup, the tail wagging was a sight to see! Definitely meant to be!

But we've gotten several relay calls and a call from Ohio, all scams....amazing, considering how very far out of the way we are here. The relay calls really annoy me, this is a free service for people who need it, not nigerian type scam artists.


Time for strawberries!
We're headed for the u-pick strawberry farm today and I'll be very busy tonight!

Three of the little guys have gone to new homes, and the house is much quieter, thank goodness.....the little girl is growing, she's still tinier than the others, but she sure makes up for it in attitude. She's graduated to dry cat food, although we still give her a bottle of milk every day for the calories.

Big one

storm, that is.
Four windows broken, a downspout ripped off, and my garden flattened. The neighbors could smell my cilantro and garlic from their house.

Connie sat in the storm room with Peanut and the little girl (who snored through the whole thing) and we crammed all the other pets in the downstairs bathroom. Except Joshie, who stubbornly vanished til it was over.

Then we went out and cleared the storm drains every few minutes or so, and prayed the water didn't rise any was level with the curb, and we don't have sandbags.

This morning we're picking up glass and I replanted my cilantro patch....
