Yesterday one of our puppies was given up by his new family as they had a health crisis with their adult dog.
So, Bentley was offered for sale again.
He was snapped up fairly quickly I must say!
He is now going to live with his brother Toby!
Toby's new family decided to get Bentley too.
AND they have already given him his 'forever' name. It is:
We all LOVE his name. It is so nice that two of the puppies will be staying together.
I am hoping to get a photo of their new owners soon to put on here.
Sewing. Not sure I will do any today. I'd really like to, but...
This is what happens when I sit at a chair for too long:
ABOVE: OEDEMA. The bane of my life, and it's worse over summer.
Usually it affects all of my body, worst ... fingers and face.
But... legs and feet when I sit too long with my feet down.
ABOVE: Having fun making 'holes' in me foot!
Not the best look though. *smiles*
My feet feel tight. And VERY heavy.
So today I might just have to have a sewing break and put me feet up. That will help drain the fluid, and I will take a piddle pill too. That sure will help! I will no doubt be running off to the loo half a dozen times this morning!
Steve, Bex and the boys are coming over this morning for a visit, so that will be great. I can sit and cuddle with the bubs and just enjoy them.
Later on today I want to pop out and post the Dragon Bag too. Tracy over on the North Shore is getting it for guessing correctly how many boys/girls Tallulah was having ... PLUS she came and gave us a HUGE amount of newspaper too. And we are certainly using said newspaper!
I hope you find the perfect use for the bag Tracy. *smiles*
1.21 pm: And it's been a busy day so far.
After taking Keera to daycare, I traced out the next cartoon for the drawstring bag, then Steve, Bex and the boys arrived.
Around 11 am I got a message saying my new glasses were ready. Excited! So Stew and I popped down to the mall and picked them up.
I also posted the Dragon Bag to Tracy while in the mall.
Next thing... the Real Estate guy rang and said he had a family wanting to look at our house, so that's scheduled for tomorrow morning at 10 am. Which means an early start for us!
The kids are gunna think they are dying having to get up early!
I will make sure 90% is done before I go to bed tonight, so all we have to do in the morning is sort out the puppies/garage and a few last minute things.
Our Open Homes resume this Sunday too... so back to keeping the house really spic 'n' span again.
I don't mind... I just hope we get that elusive buyer soon! The Lady In Red's property isn't even on the market yet, so no point dreaming she's gunna buy it any time soon.
I made waffles for lunch today, they are lovely with blueberries and strawberries added to the mixture! I only had one as they are very filling.
After lunch we put the puppies on the lawn for a little while. It was too hot for them, so they didn't stay out too long.
ABOVE: Young Archer was itching to get his hands on a puppy... but the grass was kinda freakin' him out, it was a bit prickly.
Dante just loves the pups coming up for a sniff/cuddle.
Steve and family have gone home now so the littlies can have a nap.
As for me now? I am going to lie on my bed with my feet UP. The swelling is taking forever to go down.
7.39 pm: and I did indeed have a lie down for an hour or so. It was nice.
Dinner was KFC tonight, as we spent the late afternoon cleaning/mowing lawns etc in readiness for tomorrow's viewing.
Mini's Mum came and visited her tonight. It was lovely to see how much she enjoyed her puppy. Of course, Mini has grown heaps since she last saw her! And she found out Mini is the MOST vocal and boisterous puppy of the litter! I hope that doesn't scare her! lol
Tonight I shall be doing most of the cleaning necessary before tomorrow's viewing, so there is less to do in the morning. And I might get some sewing done too... or at least get the next cartoon character ready for applique.
If I can get me butt off this lounge chair!
10.22 pm: and I did indeed get me butt off the chair, and got the cartoon cut out and onto fabric.
Then we all did a little cleaning before everyone headed off to bed. Early rising for EVERYONE tomorrow!
End of Day: another busy day! Not quite so hot today, so it was bearable. The feet have subsided... until I sit and sew for a whole day again!
