This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

A quiet holiday...

Today was my husband's last day off before returning to work tomorrow.  Izzy allowed him to pet her and scratch her around the neck.  She is more friendly when he is lying on the couch as opposed to standing.  She still runs and shys away from him when he stands.  Non the less, he was thrilled with his victory!  They have established a little morning routine, where he shares the crust of his burnt toast (he burns it on purpose) with her.  Despite me telling him not to encourage her to beg when we eat, he wants her to accept him more...

We both took her for a walk. She was really thrown off course, looking behind at us as she pranced along, to check how close he was, but by mid walk, he had the leash and she seemed fine with it.

We talked of going to a movie or taking advantage of some of the casino extra point offers, or going out to eat, but seemed too content to relax and watch good movies instead. My sore muscles from hauling rocks and the work at mom's house, are finally better.  I am not walking like Frankenstein anymore...

 Later, my husband went out and bought Izzy some marathon dog chews and Chipotle bowls for us for dinner. Tomorrow I return to normalcy and have compiled a to do list of things to get accomplished.

Hi Donna,
Thanks for finding me and commenting. If you click on the background fairy link on my blog it will take you to their blog. There are so many choices and they give you the code to install it into your blog. I think you use the add html gadget under customize and it will add it. I try to post 3-4 times a week, but if I am not feeling the urge don't. Do it for you and not anyone else is good advice I received. Probably if you google Maryanne's name you can find where it came from. I am not entirely sure since I found it on another site. Hope this helps and if I can help anymore, let me know. :O)

Just loving catching up with your blog again. I loved the post for your dad's birthday. That's all. Just breezed in to wish you well, as always. I have appreciated all your support. Later, my blogosphere friend. Don't you find that some of these "virtual" friendships are offering enormous support? Take care.
