Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

This past weekend we were in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for a continuing education conference Mitch attended.

Doggie Wheelchair

Dakota's veterinary assistant remembered a doggie wheelchair they had in the attic, and they have given it to us on an indefinite loan for as long as Dakota needs it! It has really improved her mood (and mine).

Dakota has a spinal problem now and is unable to use her back legs. We have been using a yoga strap under her hips to take her outside. But now, the "wheelchair" gives her more mobility and she likes it better than the strap. She can also more easily eat and drink.

It's terrific!

Fall Athens Yard

This is the view out of my laundry room today. If you look closely at the left foreground, you may be able to see the white camellias starting to bloom in the tall green shrubbery. The lighter green bushes along the bottom are azaleas; they bloom in Spring and span the entire front of the house. The red tree is a dogwood.

I love having a laundry room. Strangely, it makes it seem like a convenience rather than a chore. At the other house the washer/dryer was in the kitchen and it always seemed like an onerous duty. Always staring me in the face. Whatever works! If having a separate room makes it easier, I am all for it. (Either way is better than the laundromat of my youth...)

The backyard...

More Agora Finds

Found some wonderful vintage Tom Collins glasses at Agora. Multicolored, with a walnut sleeve. The walnut sleeves have wood burned decorative images: a seahorse, fish, treasure chest, anchor, shells and sand dollar.

My Election Results Theme Song

Here's the song stuck in my head today, the day after the election. The theme song from Star Wars.

Athens Fall Yard

The dogwoods are putting on a nice show of red leaves here in Athens.

Looking out the back door downstairs, you see a long swath of chrysanthamums.

Antique rose by the living room and porch has a few blooms...

Bee rooting around for pollen, his legs swollen with it, matching the flower.

Here's the angora scarf I made with yarn I purchased from a rabbit keeper at SAFF.
