Update On Sophie!

Thank you so much for your well wishes for my little Sophie.  I wanted to let you know she has improved a lot.  All I can say is she one little fighter specially at her age.  She is going to the vet today for a recheck and I'm sure her doctor will be surprised to see how much better she is.  Her appetite has improved too and she is not leaning to the right side like she was.  I'm still keeping her confined to the den so she has no chance of slipping again on the floor.  I think she is getting used to it.  Occasionally she peeks through the gate which of course makes me want to cry. :(   It's not like you can explain it's for their own good.  

Have a great day!

Boy When It Rains It Pours!

I haven't had much time to spend blogging lately.  My little girl Sophie has had one health issue after another.  A couple of weeks ago she hurt the disc in her back when she slipped on the floor getting out of her new bed.  I never really thought this through when we tore out all of our carpet a couple of years ago.  It is very hard on a little girl who is almost 17 yrs. old to not have carpeting.  While she was healing from her back injury all of a sudden she started acting strange.  She was very weak and leaning to one side.  Of course I freaked out and automatically thought she had a stroke.  Well, thank goodness it wasn't a stroke but something called Old Dog Vestibular Disease.  Basically it is an inner ear infection which gives you the symptoms of a stroke.  Actually my husband had an inner ear infection and spent 3 days in the hospital being tested for a stroke.  Since she hurt her back she has had to stay gated in our den.  I borrowed the area rug from my living room so she doesn't have to walk on the slippery floor.  It is so hard to see your pet look so sad. :(  We've been hand feeding her to get her to eat.  Today has been a much better day for her since she got this a week ago.  She goes back to see the doctor Tuesday so I'm keeping my fingers crossed she continues to improve.  

Have a great weekend everyone!  It was 72 here today...loving this weather!

A Slight Change In Plans!

Hope you are all having a great weekend.  I was supposed to be in New York right now but unfortunately it was cancelled at the last minute.  We were going to see Barry Manilow (shocking isn't it? lol) perform at Radio City Music Hall.  He has been recovering from extensive hip surgery he had on December 12.  His recovery has been slower than originally thought.  A surgery that was supposed to take 2 1/2 hours turned into 7 hours.  The poor guy has been rehearsing for the show with a walker and a wheel chair and his nurses at hand.  The shows have been rescheduled for the end of of April.  You know I'll be there!

Thought I would share a few pieces of china I recently got.  Royal Albert has a new pattern and of course I couldn't resist!  It's a pink version of Old Country Roses.

Aren't they pretty?  Macys.com has them on sale right now.

I just had to share this with you.  I made this yesterday morning from a recipe I found on Pinterest! I recently discovered Pinterest but that's another story! lol It was so easy and so yummy!

Enjoy the rest of your day! I hope you had your volume turned up.  In honor of Valentine's Day I added Moonlight Serenade to my playlist by you know who!  :)  Such a romantic song!

I Have A New Look!

Pretty soon will be two years since I started my blog so I thought it might be time to change the look.  Debbi from CGB Designs (you know her as Marionberry Cottage) did the design for me.  What do you think?  

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.  I'll be busy packing for my trip to New York!
