A Boy And His Dog....

This is Ryan but it isn't his dog.  Lisa found it walking in the road coming home from school.  She called all her neighbors and found out who it belonged to.  But she did manage to get a picture of Ryan with the puppy before carting it back to its home.   He hated to let it go.

Flowers and Hospice.....

O.K.   Enough of the ice and snow.   Now I'm ready to see some flowers and sunshine.   I've been rather busy the past two weeks.  Home Hospice is coming to help me take care of Bill. (DH)   The Dr. reccomended it and left it entirely up to me.  The best part....I don't have to try to get him to the Doctor any more.  The last time was really a hassle for me and him too.   Now the nurse comes and keeps a check on him and calls in his medicine.  I don't have to go after his Morphine prescription now at the Doctor's office.  She can call that in too!.   They have so many good programs.  I can take him for respite or five or as many as I need.   Right now, I can't see him going, but we will work on that a little at a time.  There are also aides that will come and sit with him if I need that.  So that's what's going on in my world.  Hope everyone survived the extreme cold weather without any side effects.   I know I will appreciate the sun a lot more when it does shine!

This is what my fish pond looks like today.  Something happened to my KOI......and they didn't freeze to death.   About three weeks ago, I cleaned out the pond because it was green with algae.  I took special care of the fish while I did the cleaning.  They were in a big tub of water until the pond water was ready for them.  Then I made sure the two waters were the same tempature before putting them back into the pond.  I had put some chemicals in the pond for algae and chlorine.  I think it was a combination of everything.   I miss my fish, but somehow I'm glad they are not out there today swimming around under the iceberg!

IT"S NOT OVER.......

until the fat lady sings and I haven't heard her sing yet.   I'm still in the Christmas mode...We are having some really cold weather.  The temps are supposed to drop to 9 degrees tonight.   My trees are still up and the bows and greenery are still on the windows.  I feel sad when it all comes down, but that will one of my chores for next week.  Here is what I have been doing this week.
