I like Thursdays: April 29, 2021

 Apologies for not posting last Thursday...I simply forgot about it!  It's been a busy few weeks! 

We are almost done with our 2 week wait period after our vaccine and we are ecstatic!  My first trip will be to our local quilt shop as I need backing fabric.  I can't wait and am making a list for what I want to look for on Saturday.  It's the first time I'll do anything alone (without husband or dog) since the pandemic began!

Other good news to share:

Scout is allowed to get groomed next week!  As of yesterday she was allowed to try to eat kibble (versus the boiled potatoes and meat she was on the last month).  We got a prescription food from the vet but when Brad brought it home, she smelled the bag and started dancing.  We made a big fuss over "daddy food" and she gobbled up a half cup of food and didn't get sick!

Scout still sleeps a lot but as the vet reminded us, it will take a while to get over this infection.  She has two more antibiotic shots.  In the meantime she is enjoying what we call dog tv.  She watches the squirrel channel with her friend Tinkerbell.  Yesterday the bird channel featured a confrontation between a grackle and a pair of robins protecting their nests (the robins won) and the bunny channel was very popular on our walk:

It's humid today and we need rain desperately here.  I'm hoping we get a good storm and good soaking for our garden today. Joining in with our friends who post with Lee Anna at Not Afraid of Color!

 Have a safe and happy weekend!

Happy to hear Scout is better every day! “daddy food” made me giggle! Funny, how we talk to our fur babies! I hope your trip to the quilt store goes well, and you find needed backing fabric and maybe a few other goodies!

The bunny, squirrel, and bird channel is entertaining at our house, too, and we don't even have a dog! So glad Scout is feeling better. And hooray for those weeks being over and you feeling like you can go to the quilt shop! said...

I am in agreement it is nice to have my 2 weeks up, and not worry quite so much about going out. Glad Scout is feeling better. Bobbin stands and watches for intruders all day long, when I am working my daughter comes over to take her out, and feed her, she then leaves music on for her edification. I guess Bobbin is a fan of the musical Hamilton.

Hi Michele! Yippee to an impending visit to the LQS and all by yourself at that. No need to rush! So glad that Scout is getting over her infection. Eating well has to be a huge relief as well. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

Yay for everyone getting healthier. I am dying to get back to my favorite quilt shop (but it is a trip... one of these days). Enjoy!

Heh. dog tv. I bet it's wonderfully entertaining!
