I everyone,

We have to put our 12yr old Maverick to sleep on Wed. We took Alley so she would know he would not be coming back. She was so sweet, even took his leash in her mouth and gave it the to tech when she came back in from carrying him to the back.

I held him so he would be comforted from my heart beat, he was not brave like Goose. John petted his head and talked to him. He went quietly. We have the best vet!

We are looking at a new puppy from a rescue from about an hour away. the little girl is cross eyed. I put an application in, but have not heard anything. I think I will drive down on Sunday anyway, they will be at a Petco store.

Peace Everyone!

That is awesome Trina about getting another dog. She will have such a loving master. And Alley will have a new buddy. Good luck on getting the new pup!

Again, so sorry about Maverick. It is hard when they get older. They are so close to our hearts.

Hang in there Trina. I hope you get the puppy soon.

Hugs, Karen...

Jamie,

take care, am worried and sending every thing I can to higher ups for you.

Pitmom, did not be afraid to reach out to friends, including us through email asking for help.

You are stronger than you know.

Peace and strength
Trina.

Thank you Jamie and others

Today I received a care from the VET, well WE did, but John is not around, his girl friend is staying in a hotel 20min from here so that is where he is. I can not wait til he moves out in 13 days.

So anyway the card was so sweet, Krystal the tech, ink padded Mav's paw print across the card, I didn't tear up but my heart swelled. I miss my boy.

I am not getting the pup I saw, to far away and too expensive, people are crazy. I reached out to some long times rescue people I know and will be patient.

One suprisingly wants to come over for lunch on Tuesday, I have not seen her for 9 years. Amazing. She is depressed and on Effexor, not working because she is still drinking. Wants to talk to me about this.

Think I will put my listening hat on, see how that goes, if she doesn't cancel or now show. We all know how that goes. But who am I to tell someone no, when they ask for help? That would just be cruel.

Have a good day all.
Peace and strength

Trina, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear Maverick.

I believe our pets take pieces of our hearts, but also leave us pieces of theirs.

Perhaps that's why I find my garden so peaceful...knowing the pets I've lost here are still here, in the garden.

Christmas commercial??? Wow!!! I believe it... They start early. I would say maybe it was Christmas in July, I have heard of that before but not in August. I would figure October, but not August... Ha... Right Trina?

Hot here today. Went blueberry picking yesterday. Might go tomorrow again if it isn't raining. Been trying to walk more. Got a new pair of walking shoes coming in the mail. I can't wait!

I hope you all have a good day. Oops, hummingbird alert!.. The feeder is right by my window.

Take care all...

Trina, if it's the commercial I'm thinking it is...it's not a Christmas one at all. They put a 'club' beat to the Favorite Things lyrics. A travesty yes, but not a holiday thing at all.

The constant heat and humidity is so draining. Lot's of stressful stuff going on, too. I'm 'stretched thin in my brain'.

Still not getting help with chores regularly, truck still not fixed, lost the diamond from my engagement ring, kitchen sink drain leaking...I think I'm almost at my limit.

Hello all.

Determined to 'look on the bright side' today and not get bogged down in 'what's wrong'.

I bought a Midnight Magic hibiscus a few weeks ago and it's blooming like crazy! Dark leaves background plate sized blossoms that are raspberry in the center and swirl out to nearly white. Absolutely stunning!

My cranberry shaded hibiscus continue to bloom strongly as well, with their chartruese leaves providing prime hunting areas for the praying mantis. The white hibiscus are just beginning their bloom time and the new 'baby' one my neighbor gave me has yet to show me what color it's blossoms will be! She thinks it's one of the pink ones...I hope so!

I still have some peach and apricot day lilies going strong in the main bed and my new 'pinkish' one in the back is a rebloomer, still providing color in the refreshed bed.

One of my Autumn Joy sedums has started to bloom, so I will swap out one of the 'finished' pots and move this one forward. The crepe myrtle is in it's glory...nice and tall with scarlet/ruby blooms! The scarlet runner bean has finally decided to show color and the hummingbirds make daily visits. The crocosmias are blooming well, too, giving interest in the urns even after the gladiolus have finished their performance.

The gold and burgundy of the coreopsis continue to give good color in the bed at the edge of the street. The deep purple morning glory vines have climbed the trellises and arch and pretty much anything else they can find to climb! The sunflowers and cone flowers continue to bloom well on the side of the house...I still have the Montauk daisies yet to bloom while the berries on the pyracantha ripen to their astounding shade of orange.

Yes, still more color yet to come as the summer winds down. The pineapple sage plants continue to grow...their time is much later than most everything else.

The canna plants are performing well, too! I'll be taking cuttings from the coleus soon. This way, I can keep the color going with 'new' plants through fall. I'm extra blessed this year...some of the rose campion have rebloomed, providing dots of magenta here and there! Comingled with the Russian sage, it's quite pleasing in it's effect.

Hoping everyone is having a peaceful day!

Jamie,

I hope that you feel better soon. Meditation and mindfulness for you. I hope you are having a good sleep right now. Take care...

Pitmom,

Thanks for sharing about your beautiful flowers. It always brightens my day.

Trina and everybody... I hope you are all having a good day. Trina, I hope you are doing well. One day at a time...

Hugs, Karen...

Pitmom,

I didn't catch the beat....

I dare say you must be running out of room in your yard!

Jamie, healing thoughts always.

Peace

Trina,

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss of Maverick. When my Cocker Spaniel came to the end of her days she took a large part of my heart with her. We've since replaced her with 2, a brother and sister who are the center of our lives, but nothing will ever fill the void she left.

Remember, some angels have fur, others have wings.
Warmly,
Chutz

Thanks Chutz,

I know, I have had several special dogs in my life. My heart if it could be seen in this context, would look like Swiss cheese!

However, as long as I am capable, I must have a dog in my life. Can't image living without one. Rescues are so special, I have been blessed with great dogs.

So glad you love your two.

Peace
Trina

Trina, yes, things are getting crowded out in the yard, for sure! I've avoided planting in one area because the way the old water lines ran it would have been my neighbors 'wet wall'...where his water main came in from. The landlord installed new water mains a few years ago and now that area is no longer 'in danger' of getting trampled, so.....maybe!

Any planting is always as some risk, as anything we do plant 'becomes property of the landlord' as stated in the lease. They don't want us moving out and leaving holes in the ground by digging up our plants to take with us!

Since I have no plans, other than to be carried out 'feet first', I go ahead and plant what I want (so long as it won't get so big and become a problem for the neighbor or spread too many seeds onto other properties).

Some of the people here don't do their research. One has planted a weeping willow 2 feet from his skirting...not thinking about how big the tree will get at maturity or how much water it needs...I foresee roots getting into water or sewer lines in a couple of years. Oy!

My ivy and my honeysuckle made their way over from the neighbors lot. Rather than battle them, I've 'adopted' them into my landscape. I've enough to fight as it is!

Next month, the registrations are due for both my truck and the car my daughter drives. I've told her it's time she put the car in her own name and get her own insurance.

She has managed to get one of her friends to help her buy a different car.

I am so aggravated! She has not been paying toward the rent here since her Cushing's surgery 2 & 1/2 years ago. She has not been helping with her own pets or the housework.

Now, who knows how 'nice' a car she will be getting!?

Help me to keep it together! Help me to focus on the good...that she will be taking on her own insurance bill. My partner has offered that if I am the only one on the policy, she will pay my bill for me. Help me to focus on the good.

Focus Focus Pitmom... Have faith that she will get her own insurance. You have the power to take her off of the policy. Do it...

I wish you the very best in your indeavors. I really hope that things work out.

Go in your yard and see all the marvals that you have created. I can only picture it but you can actually see it. There is a lot of work and time and patience there. A lot of good that you created.

Hugs, Karen...
