Weekend Wrap Up

Theirs is a complex relationship. Bonded in emotions that range from angst to bliss. She was all wiggles and kisses for the entire weekend when he returned on Friday after two weeks of travel. He walked them both days this weekend for extra one on one time. Monday night when he gets home from work, she will make no […]

Spring Has Sprung!

Spring is here in Santa Cruz Mountains and that leaves only a short window of time to photograph the variety of blooms in vibrant greens, blues, pinks and reds before it all turns golden brown. I walk by numerous varieties of wildflowers everyday on my dog walk and I’ve never given them a glance, much […]

When Being Strong is the Only Choice

It’s been a challenging week for me and the dogs. Between being stuck at home resting and going to multiple doctor appointments, there were no walkies. They took it with grace and didn’t complain much. I think they know more than we imagine they do. It breaks my heart to deny them their daily walk and […]

Lymegraines

Yesterday I had my PICC line placed. They told me no heavy lifting or stress on the arm for a week. So ok: no lifting Juno out of the Xterra, no lifting the crate or big boxes. No push ups or weight lifting. Not that I do either of those now anyway.  I was considering […]

Take a Bite out of Lyme

If you’ve been watching me on social media, you’ll know I posted a few photos for the Take a Bite out of Lyme Disease Challenge. Obviously, I had to take part in this challenge as the disease has totally stopped my life in its tracks. But here’s the thing that I don’t think a lot […]

Goodbye My Friend

Goodbye my friend, Norwood.  I am honored to have met and known you. I will always giggle as I fondly remember how you challenged me to find new and creative ways to use “Harry Funballs” in a sentence. We will miss you but will carry on your legacy to get outdoors every day and bounce. […]

A Lived Life

For as long as I left this blog limpling along at one or two posts per month, it seems like a daunting task take on a  project that has a daily due date. But I’m tired of waiting to recover. I’m tired of not being able to live my life because I never know when my health […]

Lymecentricities

“How are you doing cognitively,” asked my doctor. “Well,” I replied, “I used the cordless vacuum to do a quick pick-up of dog hair in my bedroom the other day. I vacuumed most of the room before I realized that the dust canister wasn’t installed.  Then it took me 30 minutes to find the canister. […]

Cracker Versus Crow

It was a beautiful morning. The dogs and I made our rounds around the property doing our daily chores. I cleaned the dog yard while Juno hunted for moles. Loki ran his daily perimeter check and implemented his standard pre-emptive strike, barking along the fence line to warn away any critters creeping too closely. The […]
