Today is Saturday 12th June

It was a horribly hot night last night, and took ages for me to fall asleep. When I did, it was with some ideas for cards on my mind so I hope to experiment with those today.
I’ve been awake since 5.30 and up since 7.45. It is going to be another stuffy and oppressive day as even the sun is taking shade behind the clouds, though makes its presence known occasionally.
We stripped the bed and the washing is out on the line.
Hubby is taking things easy having hurt his toe yesterday, almost ripping the nail off.
I’m squeamish about feet and eyeballs, so let’s just say I can’t dress it for him, but the wound is clean and he is now wearing a pair of flip flops purchased this morning round the house.

I went up the road before 9am to get fruit for my smoothies (as well as above mentioned flip flops), and town was already beginning to get busy. The cafes had all opened early and there were a lot of people eating outside. I stopped to chat with an elderly resident in the next road who lost his wife last year. He has not been well himself and recently had surgery. He’s lost a lot of weight, but is making progress and has an MRI scan on Monday at a specialist hospital. He’s in his 80s, and has a yorkie cross called Rex. Rex was Maggie’s boyfriend, and she would always look for him when we passed their gate. He never barked at her once, but did so at every other dog that went by. It was quite sweet to see them rub noses through the gate.

Have a good day everyone. Take care and keep safe

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    Squeamish here too…

  2. What a lovely scenario of Maggie and Rex ❤ Dogs could teach mankind a lot by their attitude. They don't automatically (well most dogs don't) fly at another dog and start chewing on them. Usually, there is the requisite mutual butt sniff, with tails wagging furiously and a stiff-legged stance. Then if the scent is welcoming (I guess), they may race away and play together OR there is a snarling and snapping and general fuss. Dogs take a bit of time to get to know the other dog without automatically going into attack mode. I suppose some dogs who are trained to be guard dogs or such things, would attack another dog immediately, and those dogs that are abused or mistreated may be aggressive. But Maggie and Rex prove that different breeds of dog can be fast friends! Thanks for sharing that wonderful little vignette. So uplifting!

    Ouch! I hope his toe is better soon and that he doesn’t lose the nail! We are in a heat wave right now too – almost 90F today but is starting to cool down again. We might get some rain (and thunderstorms too)…
