Monday Morning Blog Club 09/10/2017
Good morning people & fellow bloggers!
How does this Monday morning find you? Have you got the fluffy socks out yet? I have. One evening this week was definitely fluffy sock kind of chilly and I couldn’t resist. I do love the warm snuggly feeling when wearing fluffy socks.
Have you had the heating on? It’s not that chilly here yet, but I am looking forward to lighting the wood burner. It’s one of the things that gets me through the winter and today the air had a chill even though it was sunny. A sign that the seasons are changing and summer is well and truly over.
I took Buddy, one of our dogs for a checkup on his hips and he’s doing okay. It seems that we’ve been doing things right. We’ve got him on supplements for his joints and special food. He gets enough exercise and doesn’t show signs of discomfort during or after exercise. I also watch his weight and weigh out all his food… Did you know that most dogs only need 2/3rds of the food that is recommended on the packet?
There’s not a lot can be done otherwise, but with the right care, he can lead a pain-free and active life for now. He is lucky to still be here, I found him and his sister last October dumped in the middle of nowhere and in a terrible condition. Starved and full of worms. They were only about a month old.
I had to force feed Buddy for the first ten days of his life and there were nights I didn’t think he would make it, so he’s a fighter. His sister is now well loved and living in her forever home in the UK, so things could have been worse.
The Harvest Moon
Wow!… Did anyone else see it? My husband had his first evening off since Easter and we were in town enjoying a Chinese meal on the harbour front.
As we were eating the moon rose over the harbour lighting up the water with a trail of gold. Then the ferry came in, all pretty and lit up. It really was a pretty scene, I don’t think I have ever seen such a beautiful moon setting.
Did I have my camera on me? No! And my phone camera is a really bad 5mp and produces really grainy photos in low light. I still haven’t stopped kicking myself! I could have cried!
Can you remember the mouse that I accidentally let into the house? It seems to have disappeared or gone into hibernation. The two traps set in my daughters’ bedroom where it was last seen have gone undisturbed. And there’s not been any other sign of it. I’m thinking that the state of her bedroom was
I’m thinking that the state of her bedroom was too much for the poor creature and it went running for the hills!… We’ll probably find it curled up in the toes of a winter boot or something now!
So what have you been up to this week? Anything exciting or not exciting? Have you any plans for the coming week?
Now on with the link-up…
