Yes I am alive

It won't happen to me, I won't just give up the blog without notice, leaving old news hanging there forever. My laptop screen broke while I was in California, I don't have time to put up pics on this rainy morning. So I will just give a random update.

California was lovely. Visiting cities is fun but you won't catch me moving anytime soon.

We just got back from Lake George and the amusement park

Margaret is indeed older than 17, she'll be 20 in December.

We go pick up our new Labrador retriever puppy tomorrow.

We still have four kittens

Tonight I am working the Keith Urban concert

Thus morning I am food shopping for a celebration feast for 72 people Friday night.

Tomorrow, puppy (2hour drive each way), then food prep and celebrate, then Saturday...cupcake making time! Lydia's first birthday party!

Sunday morning as the sun rises, I'll be on a plane with Abigail, heading to Washington D.C. To see Sam and then drive back home on Monday. (Abigail just got back from a year in Norway and got a good job already! She was interviewed Monday and offered the job on Tuesday. )

Next week is the last week of summer for my three daughters going to high school. We plan to take it easy and train and enjoy new puppy, Sunny, although we happily spend hours discussing puppy names.

I have school plans to make

I have to get Sonja into physical therapy.

The mama cat needs to be spayed

The garden bounty needs preserving.

And now I need to grab a coffee and go out the door with Evelyn. We also need stuff for here....

And I thought it was going to get easier when they grew up.

(Oh, and Charlotte threw up last night)

I'm sure I don't know how you manage to fit so much into a day Della??!!😂😂 You have more energy than the energizer bunny!! I cant believe baby Lydia is a year old already........she is so adorable. A new puppy is going to be so much fun.........and a lot of work, but so worth it.........and I love her name. Labs are just THE BEST DOGS!!! I have 2 at the moment........just love them. Have a great weekend!!
