Life surely can get in the way of your plans.
I just checked and my last post was four days ago!... I don't like being away from my blog for that long anymore but, life does get in the way sometimes doesn't it?
Last week was a bit busy and this weekend I was just downright tired. July in South Carolina is hot and if you have a vegetable garden it's busy. Tending the garden, harvesting the fruit, putting up that fruit for long term storage, cooking etc.
Then of course in the middle of all that one my dogs, my baby girl Sarah....
decides to go and sprain her foot. So it was a trip to the vet and since all this hysteria has begun with this virus a trip to the vet is now an all together new thing. No longer can you bring your animals into the office. You have to sit in your car, call them when you get there and wait for them to come out and get your pet. Well I don't know what's happened but it seems that not only does this virus make you sick it also makes you slow as paint drying on a humid day!... I had to wait a little more than an HOUR! for them to just come outside and get her. Believe me, I was not happy and neither was Sarah. I felt bad for her having to sit in the car with me all that time. She was nervous to begin with. I was so not happy about this.
And of course after waiting an hour then waiting for them to look at her they call me on my cell as I am STILL outside and tell me they can't find anything wrong with her. They sent her home with some pain pills and said she just needs to rest. Well, I could of done that!. After having raised fourteen dogs in twenty two years you learn to keep certain medications etc on hand. But I guess it was best she was looked at anyway I just was so not pleased about how long it took. There was no reason on earth it should have taken that long.
I rested most of the weekend and did a lot of reading. Yesterday, Monday, I did laundry all day and this morning I've been outside to water the garden, put up some egg plants we grew, some blueberries and for the first time I am trying to make tomato garlic basil chips in the oven.
I"ll let you know how they come out.
