Here we are , a little more than 2 weeks into the new year. We finally got the chain link fence in the backyard fixed so the dogs can't get out and the neighbors aren't complaining to the city about the assortment of items leaning up against it to cover up holes. It's amazing how small of an area a 75 pound dog can squeeze out of. If both get out, it takes awhile to get them back. They stay together, but if one starts running so does the other. They're incredibly close and can probably be likened to human twins, even though they are only littermates and not twins. If only one dog gets out, though, she's usually easier to get back inside.
On New Year's Day I headed to a town almost 2 hours to the north. The Village of Oak Creek and Sedona. The area is famous for its red rocks and vortexes. One of the vortexes, near Bell Rock, was supposed to have energy surrounding the entire area rather than just in a certain spot, so I went looking for that. There were supposed to be Juniper trees with branches that grow twisted because of the energy. I chose NYD because it was supposed to snow NYE and the next morning and I wanted to go see snow.
Work has been going well. Pretty busy, but then there were a couple of days when there was very little to do and I left early on one of those days. Fortunately it was short-lived and things got busy again.
Last week I suffered a personal tragedy. I took one of my cats, my red tabby Royal, to the vet. They were going to run blood tests, take x-rays and schedule him for an ultrasound because the vet thought he felt a mass in his abdomen that worried him. They were going to send the blood out for testing but they decided to do a glucose test and his levels were so high their machine wouldn't even register it. My baby had diabetes. The vet said, though, that was only one of several problems and while it was treatable, the other things he might have likely were not going to be, but it was too soon to tell. He said he would like to treat the diabetes, but... well, I couldn't put him through twice daily injections and vet visits every two weeks until they got it under control plus side affects. As much as it killed me, I had to do what I thought was best. The first few days afterwards was very difficult and I'm still working on the guilt, but I know it was the right thing. Especially when I read on a blog that I follow the problems she has with her dog that has diabetes. I have a friend whose dog has it also and it's amazing what they do for their furr-babies. How much they love them for doing it. I don't know if Temecula realizes Royal isn't coming back, but he seems to really enjoy the extra attention he's getting
Tickets for Breyerfest went on sale this past week and I bought a Child's 3 day. I won't be going but it's nice having tje ability to buy left-overs and I can sell the ticket itself as it gets closer to BF when people are looking for extras. I did it last year and it worked out nicely. Breyer has also released the first models for Breyerfest and the one I want most is the Early Bird Raffle model, but you have to be present to win. Bummer.
Today is day 2 of a 3 dy weekend. I was going to go horse hunting but decided to spend it with Temecula. I spent the morning with my mom then the afternoon with him, watching movies on SyFy. I also got some shelves put up and new models finally out of their boxes
Well, I need to go. If you're still around, thank you.
