  1. Glad you got to sleep better. Your flowers are gorgeous. Hope your cucumbers a turn out fine,the same for the tomatoes. There is nothing like home grown tomatoes.

  2. So glad to hear you’re able to sleep better. And thank you for gorgeous flower pix–again!!

  3. My Capo takes VETMEDIN-1.25 mg twice a day for his heart murmur. A while back when his vet was having trouble getting it from their supplier I began ordering it from Wal-Mart Pet RX. They have always had it available , I order a 3 months supply at a time to make sure we never run out. Their price is better than Chewy’s or the vet but even if it wasn’t I would still order from them, the peace of mind knowing I can get it when needed is more important than saving a buck or two.

    I also give him Paw Healer’s Hound Honey which is a Trachea Soother Syrup, a mixture of Chinese herbs for his coughing. It’s not vet prescribed but she is ok with him taking it since it seems to be helping him.

    Other than sleeping more than he used to he’s pretty spry for a 12 year old, always ready to go for a walk or car ride, still enjoys playing with his toys and doesn’t need help jumping up on our bed at night. He’s my buddy, my pal, my friend for which I am truly grateful.

  4. I hope the situation with your front yard is resolved soon, and you will be able to rest.

  5. Glad you slept a little better. I don’t sleep well now that I’m older. I fall asleep within a reasonable amount of time, but I only sleep for a few hours after that. I get up to pee, then go back to sleep another couple of hours, but then all I do is toss and turn after that.

    We will do anything for our fur babies, won’t we? Clementine is on two medications that cost a lot of $$ – $2/day. That’s $60/month just for her meds. Not to mention her prescription cat food is $75/case (of 24). And her prescription dry food is about $40/bag. She has regular blood and urine tests for her kidney disease every few months, which are pricey. And she’s gone through holistic testing for her anxiety/skin issues which have also cost $$.

  6. Glad you slept a little better, Brenda…not getting enough sleep is hard for the whole day.
    My projects evolve as I do them, too.

    One year I had little tomatoes until November. When it was going to be a hard freeze, I picked all the green ones and put them in the window sill. Eventually they all turned red and we ate them.
    Ivy is such a pretty cat. Glad she loves her “tree” so well.
    I hope Charlie isn’t in pain with his troubles. Seems sad that he has to suffer just to live.
    The flowers you post are so pretty and healthy looking.

  8. Hi Brenda,
    Anxiety, and stress are the culprits in problems with sleeping, at least for me. Your worrying about Charlie and everything else going on these days, will undoubtedly stress anyone out.
    Ivy looks plump and adorable in each and every photo! I sure wish my little Merci Kitty, who’s a little younger than Ivy, will fill up a bit more. Kitty is a bundle of energy, but still skinny. Maybe it’s her spurts of energy/zoomies.
    Love the yellow cucumber flowers too.
    Stay safe and try to rest.

  9. Hoping you get more much needed rest & that Charlie stops coughing & feels better! Beautiful Ivy, so glad she likes her new cat tower. It was a great idea & she can perch & watch the outside world or nap. Your flowers are beautiful as always. The last flower photo reminds me of a herb but must be a flowering plant I’m not familiar with, such amazing colored blooms. Anxious to see your latest decorating project. Take care & stay cool!

    1. The last flower is called Blue Daze.

    Waiting often provides an answer to things doesn’t it? Whatever comes I am sure will be pretty!! So sorry about Charlie…that is the hardest thing about dogs…they simply do not live all that long really. Take care of yourself.

  11. Mary Ellen says:

    Hahaha! tried to correct one word too late. Sorry for the redundant post.

  12. Mary Ellen says:

    “The answer will come if I just give it time.” I think that sentence is one we can all take to heart. It would actually be a great tattoo! It’s funny, I was just remarking to my wife how determined and fast growing the weeds are in our yard when I came in from watering this morning. Wish some of my plants exhibited the same determination! best to you and your family.

      a red hot summer here in Houston.
      I have to water a lot also. I have to carry water.thru the house to plants in the front because no facit out front.
      I’m so glad you got some rest.
      Poor Charlie, not being able to
      stop coughing.
      I hope you get more sleep tonight.
      Can’t wait until you finish decorating. I always enjoy what you create.
