First I'd like to thank you all for your insightful comments on my Blogging post. I just wanted to make myself clear that I was not asking for more comments, just stating that I think it a bit odd when people don't comment back on your blog after you have repeatedly commented on theirs. I think a simple, "Hello, or thanks for you comments," shouldn't take up too much time. I don't think you have to comment on every post your friends write, no one has that much time, and I really appreciate all of you and the time you take to visit me on this little blog. I loved reading your comments, bloggers are an amazing group, kind and so full of wisdom.
We haven't had a picture of Max lately, and by the looks of the photo above he was not having any part of the camera. He is sensitive to the paparazzi, so I had to be patient and take probably another 20 pictures before he would look at me. And by the look he is giving me in this picture he was not that happy with my camera wielding behavior.
Max has a bad right hip. When he was a puppy I could tell by his walk that his pelvis wasn't bearing weight evenly. He wiggled a bit too much on one side. Sure enough hip dysplagia was the diagnosis. We watch him carefully and give him pain medicine when needed. His hip is bothering him again after playing a little ball in the backyard with my husband, it troubles him to get up and down. He actually slept by my feet last night on the bed, so he must have been hurting. Even dogs need their Mom's when they are not feeling great.
This week has been all about gardening and I am paying the price today with a sore neck and back. I tamed the front of my house and planted marigolds and petunias in a boarder. The marigolds are to keep the deer away, well today's photo should just be of the marigolds because the deer ate all my petunia's last night and left the marigolds alone.
The back of the house has been cut back, weeded, weeded again, planted with annuals that are not showing up in this photo for some reason. 28 bags of stones have been added, (notice sore back above).
The azalea's are in full bloom, such an amazing color.
Look at this sweet iris, such a soft color.
A basket full of beautiful cotton yarn to make more crochet flower scarves for the Etsy shop.
Love this latest flower version I came up with while watching American Idol this week. I'm not sure if you are watching this year or not, but I think the singers that have been picked are pretty talented. Some years you just can't believe that some of those people made it in, but this year even if I don't like someones voice I can see why others like it.
So how was your week? Did you get a lot done? What are your plans for the weekend? Hope you find some time for yourself.
