Positive thoughts...

Most of you would know from previous posts that hubby and I don't have kids, well not of the normal kind anyways..... we have "furry kids".


We lost our old girl Cassie about six months ago. She was 17+ years old and I saved her from the pound as a wee little kitten....she is very much missed around the house!


Well sadly now our girl Dusty (our 12 y/old Australian kelpie) is having a few problems and she is at the vet today having surgery to remove what we think is a cancerous lump in one of her many "boobies".
She's greying around the edges now days....but still on the ball
You can never catch a piccie of this one without her waking!!
She was sound asleep a "millisecond" before I took the shot!
...and I was being extra sneaky too!

We are staying very positive and will do everything we can to give her the best chance possible. So please if you have the time, please cast a few positive thoughts her way today...


She is very much a part of our family, not just ours but our extended family as well and has had lots of calls from friends and family members alike. Obviously she cant talk to them but that's about the only thing this old gal can't do....I swear she is a "hairy human" not a dog at all....and she NEVER lets us forget it!
Spoiled rotten!

Still one one eye open!

Anyways...just wanted to put my positive thoughts out into the "cosmo"...

Til next time....

What's up (with the carrots) doc???

I haven't had a spare minute lately to catch up with anything, let alone make a blog post, so I thought I would just share these pics with you so that y'all know I am still alive and kickin'.

My sister in law started her first vegie patch last year....

As some of you would know, we are very close and both my hubby and  I spend a lot of time with her, my brother and my little niece.

On many of our visits Caz, Cheeky-Charlie (aka Charlotte) and I would head down to inspect the latest "happenings" in the vegie patch.

Every time a new seedling poked it's little head out of the soil or another juicy tomato caused the plant to droop a little further over it was met with "oohs" and "aahs" from all three of us. This went on for months and much fun was had by all...

Finally the time had come to pick the much awaited first crop of carrots. We three again headed down, Charlotte- basket in hand at the readiness for an abundant haul. The anticipation was  high (it was a BIG basket...lol) and the excitement was plastered all over our little faces (okay- I'm playing it up a little....but we were keen to pluck 'em out...lol)

Imagine our surprise when we pulled out
Caz's ???
prize???
....er
..... carrots???
.....lol...
 
What a hoot!!!

I know....all you avid gardeners out there will be "tisking", shaking your heads, telling me under your breath that there was too much fertilizer in the soil or something to that effect....but I reckon we couldn't have picked a better haul.....the fits of giggles from us both and 3 year old Charlie were worth every twisted, mangled and deformed offering.

I am pleased to say that the carrots were grated up and used in the rice salad that night with our BBQ and despite their initial appearance tasted just like the real thing...lol

Better luck next year Sis!!!


A rabbit came into a shop and asked,
"Got any carrots?"
The seller answered, "No!"

The next day the rabbit came again and asked,
"Got any carrots?"
The seller replied "No!"

Next day the rabbit came and asked,
"Got any carrots?"
The seller shouted, "No!
And if you come again and ask for carrots,
I'll take nails and hammer you on the wall by your ears!"

Early next morning the rabbit came back and asked,
" Got any nails?"
The seller answered, "No!"
The rabbit asked.....

"Got any carrots?"

....tee heee!


'til next time.....
