Grandma And Grandad Go To The Vet!

These are our daughter’s sweet girls. Hava on the left, Magen on the right. They are eight months old and doing well. Magen weighs seven pounds less than Hava but I think Hava has had a growth spurt and Magen will soon catch up to her. They don’t have to go back until next August for their shots. We got their heart worm/flea tablets and they are good to go.

It was quite an experience for this grandma. They are very strong dogs and get excited and want to lunge and drag their grandma, but grandma prevailed. Once they are in the pickup they are quiet and content, but they got a bit excited seeing other dogs at the vet clinic. An English Bulldog wanted to come play as much as they did. Then there was a HUGE Great Dane and when we were leaving a female Mastiff puppy, bigger than either of these girls and younger than them, wanted to play as well. All in all a positive day. Now they can run and romp and get rid of any excess energy before dinner time.

It had been awhile since I had spent much time around either of them and they gave my face a good washing and snuggled and leaned on me while we were in the clinic. I swear, if I had let them, they’d have both taken turns getting in my lap! Lap dogs they are not! But they are very sweet girls.

I saw the chiropractor this morning and the vet visit was this afternoon. Yeah. Next time around we will reverse that process! My shoulders will ache by morning, no doubt. We had tuna salad plates for lunch and it was pretty filling. I ended up making a huge pot of black bean soup for dinner last night and we’ll probably have a cup of soup later when we get hungry.

The weather has been gorgeous all day. It started out at around 50° and it’s 75° at 5:45 pm. Perfect weather, perfect day. I’m almost finished with the green socks and hope to bind them off before bedtime. We are in for the evening, trash bagged and taken out to the road for pick up in the morning. Neither of us has anything that just has to be done tomorrow but we could go by Simmons Bank and close the last account. All deposits and drafts are now going to the new bank and there is no reason to leave an account open at Simmons. Yay!

Have a blessed Tuesday evening, ya’ll.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
