Another Stormy Evening

Gray Squirrel above
and Chipmunk below

We had some visitors on our front porch and fountain.  I know they are rodents but they are so cute!
Punkin had another good day!  I can sure relate to her aches and pains.  My back has been giving me fits!  I can't stand for very long anymore and it's just so aggravating!
I am watching a storm come up from the west, Dusty on my lap, Sadie laying beside me and Punkin in front of the air conditioner vent, guess the poor baby is having a hot flash!  She is such a great dog!  Can you tell I love my furbabies!?
Phil has a chance for a job tomorrow, he was called in for a test and initial interview with a local company.  I hope he gets something soon, cause unemployment is running out very soon!
It has become very quiet outside, not a good sign, there are tornado warnings all around us and there are supposed to be more storms after midnight.  I think I'm gonna go nap.
and for anyone interested, God and mother nature has nothing to do with all the storms.  Does the prince of the power of the air mean anything to anyone?  He knows his time is drawing near and he's putting up a fight!

She's a sassy girl tonight. Dusty has her spot on the sofa and she's bummed. I keep telling her not to get down, but since she can't hear, oh well, I think you see where I'm going with this....Another good day at the palace. God is good and everything takes care of itself. Sending up prayers of protection tonight for my loved ones in the path of this new storm... and more prayers for all the loss suffered these past few weeks in Alabama and Missouri and now Kansas. I really question why these horrible things keep happening, especially to innocents, like that little baby missing in MO. Then I remember, life isn't fair but there is the grace of God that can help you through, if only you reach out to Him.

Today is a Good Day

Punkin seems to be a bit better today. Maybe a weekend of Tramadol and Robaxin helped. She even jumped up onto the sofa! I know it's just a matter of time before the day comes when she crosses that rainbow bridge and I don't see how you can ever prepare yourself to lose someone that you love so much. It makes me cry just to think about it. My boss is great, she completely understands that when the time comes I will need some time off to grieve. Thing is, I don't see how that grief will ever end, at least not right now. I just know, I'm not ready and I'm going to do everything I can to prolong her life, whatever it takes. I've spent the weekend reading and searching for cures and pain relievers. It turns out, I happened to have what she needed on hand.
So, today is good and I'm very thankful!!

More depressing news

My old girlie Punkin is failing. She turned 11 back in January and now is becoming lame. She also has a heart murmur which makes any kind of surgery risky and has gone deaf. This is the first dog I have ever had that entirely belonged to me, depended on me and I don't know what I'm going to do when the end finally comes. Yes, I still have Dusty and Sadie and I adore both of them but like I said, Punkin is my girl. Where ever I am in the house that's where you will find her, my little shadow!
Phil is still unemployed (two whole years!), unemployment is about to run out. Will this depression ever end!
