If you thought my blogging has been sporadic (read: non-existent) in the last few days, well, its only going to get worse…It’s t minus 14 hours until the arrival of Patti, friend from Cali and I’ve still got lots to do. Add to that a dog that, for the last 2 days has been throwing up every meal exactly 5 minutes after he eats it and you can see what I’m up against. Angus seems happy and normal — he’s just barfing everything up. Vet says (after xrays) it might be just an irritated stomach. If he doesn’t stop throwing up even on his bland diet (boiled chicken and rice) then he has to go in for another set of xrays and if they find an obstruction we’re looking at surgery to remove it. Yep. When it rains it pours. I’m trying to remain calm and not get really anxious because there’s nothing I can do but after living with a dog with diabetes and leukemia I can tell you my nerves are fried and I need a break from the pet gods….(so does my wallet).
I’m happy with how it came out–it’s amazing what a coat of paint can do!
Right outside the windows are two old honeysuckle bushes. When the morning sun hits them they smell heavenly. Also outside the window are wild cherry trees so there are birds flitting around and chirping all morning. Hell, I wouldn’t mind staying in this room!
This was a vintage sheet I bought years ago when we had our cabin and would make trips to Sonora Ca. were there was the cutest vintage furnishings shop called Tarflats Antiques. I’ve been waiting for the right place to use it and I think I found it.
Well, I don’t know how much I’ll be able to post in the next few days but I’m sure I’ll have lots of pictures and news of the Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene. And hopefully no dog surgery stories…
