Triple-digit stinkin’ hot every day.
And very, very dry . . .
We need rain badly.
The price of hay has gone ridiculous (making me wish I had some to sell!).
All of our babies are finally here. No more pregnant mommies. Every single one of them healthy and happy, which makes us very happy, too!
At my friend, Cindy’s, suggestion, the new baby has been dubbed Calamity Jane.
Oh, and lest you think Triple-K stands for something else, it really stands for “Katy Kitchen’s Kow” because we got her from my sister.
Have I mentioned we need rain?
And that it’s stinkin’ hot?
Big Dan had a major setback after his kidney ordeal, and spent all last week in the animal hospital. While at first, Gidget didn’t mind him being gone, she eventually missed him, and demanded to know what I’d done with him. And she’s serious!
We came real close to losing him, but our vet never gave up on him, and Big Dan is home now, and although he’s not quite back to his normal playful carefree self, he’s hopefully on the mend for real this time. I feel like I should bake the vet some cookies!
Big Dan wasn’t the only one in the hospital last week, either. My Cowboy suffered a mild heart attack last Monday night, and had to take a helicopter ride to the emergency room. He’s also home now and on rest for a few more days.
I’ve had enough of doctors, and hospitals, and not getting to quilt!
And the heat . . .
And the lack of rain . . .
Did I mention how dry it is?
Thanks to all of you who sent messages and well wishes and missed me! It’s nice to know someone worries when I disappear for a bit.
I’ve got lots of things to tell you about, so I hope to get at that over the next few days.
How have YOU been?
