I just thought it had been a while...ha

I haven't posted about sickness for my girl in a while. If you are reading on over here you know Lillian is quite ill with something viral. I'm praying it is something we can manage here at home. Aside from the fact that I don't want to go on sabbatical in a hospital again, we have no doctors at the moment. We see her new pulmonary doctor on the 24th, so we really need this yuck to go away.

We are pretty well settled in to the new place. The garage is still a disaster, but overall things are in good shape. I really love it here. It is peaceful. Upon moving we inherited a vast number of cats, who have been quite lazy at mousetrapping. We killed right around 20 mice in the first couple weeks here, but ever since the D-con got put out, haven't seen hide nor hair of the little critters. We knew it was time for the big guns when we sitting in the living room and the kids were sleeping and they ( the mice) decided to come kick back and watch a little TV in the living room. *gags* I'm sure we haven't seen the last of the little guys since we live in the country and harvest season is upon us...but for now, it is under control.

The girls have had a great time here climbing trees and roaming the property. We have a little family of wild ducks in our pond and countless frogs. We also became owners of four, count em four dogs. My hubs has always wanted dogs outside, well, now he has them. I will hope to post some pics soon. Not sure right now how as my PC has had everything stipped from it and I'm not sure how to load it all again. I'm not much of a cd saver. This, perhaps, is a bad practice I'm finding out.

I know this is a lazy post, but I needed something to occupy my mind for the moment. Maybe next time I'll be more interesting. Never know.

Glad to hear that you are enjoying your new home! Sorry about those pesky mice! We've been killing some in our barn and garage this summer too! YUCK!

Hope Lil is feeling better now! Have a great weekend! HUGS!!!

20 mice!!!! Yikes!! That is so cool that you live in the country.

I remember when we had mice. I didn't know. I was slowly going into labor and my husband wanted me to relax and he slept on the couch and he heard them running around in the attic!!

I hope Lillian is better soon so you guys can enjoy the property:)

regarding my card: Nope. It is not chalked. Just colored pencils and the wings I used glitter glue.
