Still here – checking in on folks when I can. Lots of stuff going on with the family and school and work – pretty much the same for everyone everywhere. Haven’t felt the need to opine on things lately as many others who are much smarter than I am are doing a much better job than I ever could.
The garden has been put to sleep for a couple of weeks – a week or so of hard frosts took care of the last bits. The garden has never been huge but we have learned a lot over the past few years from it. Food from the garden always tastes better.
Family and pets are all doing good. Sage is moving a little slower and that is starting to concern me. I know that her days are numbered, as all of ours are, but it is still difficult. Read something a while ago about old pets and I think about it daily. Quality of life is more important to pets than quantity of life. Sage doesn’t mark her years with a celebration each year – all she knows is that “YES!!! I get a treat this morning!” or “YES!!! I get to take a lap around the block and sniff and smell and see what the other dogs are up to!!” I need to do more of that with her.
The gals are all doing great. L is still a handful and keeps us on our toes at all times. B is doing great as well – I am a very lucky man to have her in my life.
I have more to write, of course, but need to cut this one short. Original intent was just to say hello and that yes, we are all still alive out here! I hope that you and yours are all doing well also! Take care.
