This poor blog

So neglected.

I think I’m ready to start blogging again. If there’s a recipe or technique you’d like to see – leave a comment here and I’ll see what I can do.

Life has been crazy here, the kids are grown – we just got a new puppy…

I’ve started working on crafts and sewing again – slow going as I’m really rusty – but now that I don’t have kid demands every evening- why not try to blog a few times a week? Once a week?

Since I last blogged over a year ago, we lost our old girl Sandy – she gave us 14 amazing years and we still miss her. Todd was jonesing for a bird dog and picked up a new puppy a month and a half ago. He’s pretty cute, but really obnoxious. I might be the only person on the planet who doesn’t like puppies. Right before we picked up Cedar (the puppy) Ollie had an episode of paralysis and extreme pain. I was sure we were going to lose him mid August. Luckily the vet was ready to try a few different medicine combos and we found the right one. He’s got about 70% of his mobility back – still quite wobbly in his hind end – and has a hump in his back. He was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease. He’s pretty good, needs medicine for pain occasionally – once a week or so.
