Stew and I are off to do the grocery shopping first thing this morning, then we can relax for the rest of the day ... knowing it's done.
Steve is off to work AGAIN today, he's worked 7 days in a row now. I think he's taking a day off during the coming week to compensate.
Bex is hoping Steve will be home by early afternoon, as she wants them to take Dante out to watch planes coming in at the Airport. Right now Dante is fascinated with planes.
We get heaps flying near us. We are just 'off' the direct flight path of all planes coming into Auckland, and get to see some awesome big planes.
There is a 'viewing' car park about half a kilometer (0.8 miles) from the landing strip, and you can park there and see the planes REALLY CLOSE UP. Dante is going to love it... or hate it! It can be quite loud. But exciting too.
Now... here is what I got done last night:
I've got heaps of stitching to do now. Then build it up a bit... border and so on.
ABOVE: The face of MISERY. He is so, so unhappy. His sore patch is healing and getting itchy. Ted goes berserk every now and then trying to gnaw himself. Or he runs up and down the house, throwing himself on the floor and rolling around trying to rub the itchy place.
He likes to lie under Stew's lounge chair, which makes Stew mad because when he wants to get out of his chair he has to wait for Ted to move, and Ted doesn't WANT to move sometimes.
He's been 'squashed' a few times. WHOOPS!
So, that's me for now... I will pop back later ...
LYNDA: thanks for that tip. I will look at it to, because I love to see the planes coming in too.
LYNDA: we think that site is AMAZING! Thanks so much. We will try not to get addicted. I'm going to download the App on me phone... then I can point my phone at a plane and it's details will come up! So cool.
Antihistamines. Yes he has them. Don't help. Steroids help, but I try to only use them when he's really bad. They are not that good for a little dog, as they can damage kidneys etc.
Yaaa. Groceries bought and put away. Time for a bite to eat, then lie in the sun. Gorgeous, gorgeous day out there!
ABOVE: Bex just made an ELMO.
ABOVE: Dante saw it and screamed and cried until he could have it. I will show you WHAT he did with it.... tomorrow.
I have just enjoyed an hour in the sun and in the cool spa pool. I feel WONDERFUL! I need to do more 'outside' time I think. I really loved it.
End of Day: well apart from the grocery shopping, today has been lovely.
Now... off to do a wee bit more sewing, then bed.
