Weekend Roundup

Poppy Mania is snarling traffic in our city! I know they’re pretty, and hikers love it. But do folks have to stop on freeway and off ramps clogging up traffic and cause hazards? Or park in the middle of the street? Or let theirs kids or dogs wander on the roads unsupervised while mom or dad post to Facebook or whatever??? Just asking… Honestly, I appreciate the rare beauty, I’d just like folks to use some common sense.



Friday: I finally got to see my sister Biker Witch! We had lunch and walked around some shops, then had dessert. Visiting with my sister always makes me happy.

Friday night, I was pretty miserable with the stupid cold, so Wizard talked me into taking some cough and cold syrup with antihistamine in it. Sigh…poor Wizard, I scared the hell out of him by screaming in the dead of night. I don’t even remember it, but Wizard said I was having a nightmare and he got me to calm down. I believe him, it’s not the first time I’ve done it, I just usually wake up and recall it the next day. It freaks me out that I don’t remember it this time. So…yeah…no more antihistamines at night for me.

Today I’m feeling much better.

CPA Boy and Special K’s dog little dog, Miracle Max, had to have a second emergency surgery for another ruptured disc in his back. He pulled through the first surgery for two ruptured discs last November, and with some specialized physical therapy, he regained some use of his back legs. This time, the odds are not that great, and yet, when Special K went to visit him yesterday, he had some feeling in his back paws less than 48 hours after the second surgery! He’s truly Miracle Max, and we’re all pulling for him that he can resume a happy quality of life. He sure has owners who love him and are willing to fight to give him a chance.

I struggled with my book, and obviously cold meds are not my friend, LOL, but yesterday, I think I found a scene that will turn the book in the direction it needs to go. This has been my problem turning point that trips me up every time I try to rewrite the book, so this is significant! I’ll work on that more today.

I’m on call for jury duty all week, but didn’t have to go in today.

And here’s a pic of my grandson, Turbo. Apparently his dad told him he can’t eat dog food, and Turbo is arguing with him. I think Turbo is winning the debate, LOL! He’s about a week shy of his first birthday and getting so big…and opinionated!

So that was some of my weekend, how was yours?

    OMG, Turbo has gotten so big! He’s not a baby anymore, that’s for sure. Turbo, dude, I’d let Dad win this debate.

    The poppies are so pretty, but yeah, it’s not worth snarling traffic for a look. Yay for Biker Witch time! Boo about the antihistamines. But at least you’re feeling a bit better now. Oh, no. Poor Max. Positive thoughts winging their way to him. Fingers crossed the scene works to get you back on track. And that they won’t call you for jury duty this week.

    Your weekend was way busier than mine. But I did finish Ugly and the Beast, so yay. Plus, I got some more woods work done. And I made brownies. Life is always better with brownies. =o)

    Turbo is such a cutie! And hey, Dad, if it’s good enough for the dogs… ;)

    I don’t get people rubbernecking at all. Of course, this is the Monday after Daylight Savings Time and I don’t get most of humanity at the moment. Just sayin’… ;)

    Yay for Biker Witch, turning point, and boo on the antihistimines. That’s just…scary weird. Good Wiz!

    My weekend was…not much going on. I’m pretty much in a slump. :lol: The good news is, Adidas seems to be feeling better. She’s moving around the house more, loving her gushy food, and getting her voice back. She’s very vocal under normal circumstances.

    And that’s pretty much my life at this point. :)

    B.E., you’re so right on Turbo, he’s really growing.

    You did great finishing that book! And working in the woods plus brownies. That’s a pretty good weekend! And yes, life is better with brownies, LOL!

    Silver, Turbo likes to feed the dogs his food, so yeah, why can’t he eat theirs? His parents just don’t understand, LOL!

    That’s great news on Adidas. At his age, it’s always a worry when he doesn’t feel well. All I can say on the slump, is yeah, I get it. Hopefully you are able to get out of it soon!

    Looks like Turbo will win many arguments 🥰.

    Sorry people are so bloody rude and can’t enjoy the beauty of your poppies safely and kindly.

    Man, you must have frightened Wizard. Poor guy for the scare and poor you for still having the cold.

    Didn’t reply yesterday because I came down with an intestinal bug to go along with the cold. I can honestly say that dropping to 98# is not a good thing unless you’re under 5’ or a child. The nice thing is Spunk has been glued to me.

    I hope your cold is over and that you have a great afternoon.

    Viki, major sympathies on the stomach bug! That’s true misery, and even worse on top of your cold. Yay for Spunk taking care of you, he clearly loves you.

    Turbo likely will win, LOL!

    My cold is better each day, thanks! I really hope you get lots of rest and feel back to full health soon.
