It was quite truthfully a roller coaster of emotions kind of weekend.
Eldest daughter had to put her dog down.... she had been 'off colour' all last week... we were all sure it was just a stomach thing....... nothing too serious..... until the vet told her that there was blood and fluid in her abdomen ......... they took her into the vet hospital for some tests and IV's ........ and in less than 24 hours they were told she had cancer. What a sad sad time.......... this pup was so gracious (if a dog can be gracious) and my favourite thing about her -- how she loved to 'go walk about' during the summer. We would be sitting on our deck and I'd hear my daughter or SIL yell "BUFFY" I'd turn and look to see her meandering off their property. How she loved her walk abouts... sometimes she was even allowed to meander over to visit with us. She truly was a sweet dog.
Then we had to pick up the lil one from her mother's and drive to Montreal to celebrate Sir Steve's granddaughter's 2nd birthday. Neither of us could believe it had been 2 years since that phone call that his daughter was in hospital with severe pain in her abdomen. Apparently she didn't know she was pregnant!!! We were all lucky that she had a healthy baby girl. AND now she is 2!!
Then on Sunday we went shopping .......... AND........... we went to Walmart!! And I didn't have a panic attack !!! You will never guess what Sir Steve found..... never ever guess...
a new Christmas gnome!! I LOVE gnomes (the European sort - not the troll like ones)
I discovered them about 4 years ago and have been slowly adding to our collection... sometime during the month of December when I am doing my "holidailies' posts I will show you all the gnomes in every shape and size.
AND then in what feels like a blink of an eye - it's Monday again!!!
