Today is Wednesday 2nd September

It’s early and looks like being another lovely day.
After the stress of a restless night with Maggie on Sunday, things seem to be settling back down. We do not understand her recent behaviour, sniffing the air for no apparent reason, and scent marking every five yards on our walks or five minutes in the garden. I am wondering if the treatment she had to disperse the pyometra in June has triggered another false season,  which the vet said could happen, so I am watching her very carefully. I’ve let her out twice so far this morning which is normal, and she has settled down beside me, so hopefully Hubby can have a couple more hours of sleep before our day starts.

So far, my blog has seen no change, so I am taking each day as it comes.
We picked some more tomatoes yesterday and there are loads just starting to blush. They are full of flavour without being overpowering, and cook very well. The pasta dish I made the other day was delicious. I would think they will make a lovely soup.
After yesterday’s shop, we shall be having pies. potatoes and veg for dinner today. I have been careful with the diet, dutifully recording my syns, weighing any extras and looking things up rather than rely on my memory. It’s paying off and I am well back within my target parameters. Group resumes next week and I want to get below my official target according to my scales as there is always at least a two pound differential. I weigh myself in the morning and my session isn’t until 5pm, so whatever I eat during the day will have to be minimal. We also have to keep our shoes on and wear masks, so it all counts and I doubt if any allowances will be made. My plan is to go, be weighed and then come home.
It’s our consultant’s birthday and I made this card for her if you recall.
On with the day then. Hubby mentioned yesterday we might go for a field trip.
Keep safe everyone.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
