Recently my neighbor rescued the cutest lab mix puppy girl and is trying to find her a home. He asked me to come by and take some pictures of her so he could make some hand outs. Midi (short for Midnight) is very well behaved for a young lab. When he took her in she was underfed and had skin problems. She's been to the vet and is all healthy. She also likes cats and loves to play with a kitten my neighbor rescued at the same time. I just wanted to post some pictures of her to let you see just how cute she is.

Isn't she just the cutest thing? She would love to have another dog to play with, too. I'm not asking you to adopt her, just wish her luck in finding her forever home. But if you do know someone in the Houston area who might like to make her a part of their family, please let me know.

It has been so hot for so long here. In the last two months I think it's been 90 or over for more than half and over 100 for many, many days. It's too hot to do much outside, even running errands gets difficult later in the day. The parking lots are hot and the car gets hot. I feel like those people who are snowbound in the winter time, being stuck inside all day. Even walking to the mailbox can bring on heat stroke. And the heat just takes all the starch out. Know what I mean? Even with the A/C, you feel it even in the house. I makes me very lethargic and not interested in much except playing with my Farm Town farm on Facebook! I try to get started on sewing projects and just can't get into it.

And the worst part is the lack of rain! I think we've had maybe an inch or so in the last few months and that's unusual for Houston. We aren't even getting those usual afternoon sea breeze showers. In June if felt like August and it still does. Anyway, it's happening over most of Texas so I guess I shouldn't take it personally. This, too, shall pass, I know. The wheel turns and it will be fall and winter one of these days. Especially welcome, too. I never thought I would wish it, but a little hurricane might be nice about now. lol

Thanks for reading my whining. I feel a bit better and I think I'll go get me some tea and get off of this computer for a while. Y'all have a great day!!!!

You must go check out Sew Meow's blog today about her birthday giveaway. Today she's adding the cutest cat fabric. Check it out and see how to enter MANY LOUD MEOWS heard round the WORLD!


Buddy went in to his eye vet for a 3 month checkup and he got a really good report. The doc said his eye pressure was normal (remember, he has glaucoma) and seemed very happy at that. Buddy will keep taking his pills (well, I'll be giving them to him) and we will continue the eye drops, but we can discontinue the eye ointment since the cloudiness has disappeared. Buddy was very good during the exam as always, but seemed relieved when it was over. We don't have to go back for FOUR MONTHS!!!! That's November!! Wow!!! The only downer is that we need more drops and they were out and will have to mail me some when they come in. I think we can eke out enough for a few more days. Anyway, just wanted to share the good news.

Happy to be home
