I'm not either - the only soup they make that I like is tomato.

What a busy few days I have had! Stressed out family members, somebody else's book checked out to me at the library, migraine, work, shopping and garden produce pretty much sums it all up. Migraine is gone - yay!!!! Today was laundry day and I am also trying to catch up on all the things I did not get accomplished over the weekend, including the forums here. Missed all of you!!! I will be in and out for the next few hours.

Be MERRY!!!!
I'm glad your migrane is gone!!! Hope your day is getting better!!!!

(My Goddaughter) Tomorrow morning we are leaving early to go to the Cincinnati Reds game. It's Joe Morgan day at the ballpark. Should be fun!! I'm going to try to catch up a little on here before I head out to eat....

Snowflake - I just saw where Harlow wasn't feeling well. I'll have to read back to get the scoop, but I hope she's much better today!!!! Glad to see she is eating & drinking!

Have a great day everyone!!!!
I hope things improved for you, Holiday, and that you had a great time at the Reds game!!!

Goodluck job hunting, I hope you will find something that you like soon.



You must be so worried. Have you taken her to the Vet? I'm praying for her recovery and health.

We did routine bloodwork on her to check her levels a few months ago, and they were all good. I just did take her in last week, but not for this. She got sick that evening for the first time, actually. Then was fine for a few days. And then yesterday again She is doing better today, thank God. She hasn't been lethargic, or seem to be in pain after, like before. So, for now, I will keep an eye on her. I let the vet know, and they said if it happens again, bring her in.
Thank you for the prayers!!

xx



I bet it all looks really lovely, the weather has been strange everywhere.



We turned our heating on last night for the first time in months! It is chilly in mornings and at nights these days.

MerryCarey, I just saw the pics the sitting area and all your books. Impressive!!!
Thank you, CAH!!

I love Bernat yarn - it is so soft!

Look what happens when I get behind on here! You quoted me to tell me about your tortoise several days ago and I am just now seeing this.

Do you have a picture of your tortoise? I would love to see her!
