Good Morning All

Well the wind rolled all the stuff all over, one of the horse shelters took a hit...I'll have it fixed when day light hits. Anyway Thomas spent the night under the electric blanket curled up on my chest. I am worried he is REALLY sick and he has not moved from the bed. I too see him hardly moving. Okay I know we went to the vet, he took the meds like a fearless soldier...But still he looks so bad.

So I have spent the morning looking for new digs for hubby...He will be working 12 hours a day 7 days aweek, thus the hour drive each way will not work out. And the fact that his roomie has kids is not working out too much chaos.. Hubby has paperwork after the work day leaves him in no mood to have his peace disturbed. So the hunt is on. I had looked at several places for sale that would be the same price/cost as rent. One even had a barn...A few acres. Maybe a horse with him would give him some sort of peace. Pray I find a way to help him increase his time, lower his commute and find just the right thing/place you know...

I'm worried about my Inkling as the weather has been a challenge for us out here...Hoping that the damp cold that seems to get under your skin here takes it easy on her. Ang and I are both suffering and we are for the most part use to it.

Today I will not be invaded by workers or such, altogether I was kicked out of the house for some huge thing to remove the bugs/ mold/mildew or whatever it was/is...It is used in hospitals after contamination. Took bunny to mom and dads, went to ju's place ate split pea stew and then drank tea and ate cookies and then ate again at mom and dads...Fabulous fish homemade tartar sauce, cream corn corn bread and potatoes...Yummy oh yummy

Arrived home as the storm broke out over my head well past dark....Opened the back door and was knocked over by the smell..I was warned and it was bad. I opened up the doors and they all slammed shut...So I took a rubber band twisted it in a drawer pull and then wrapped the other end around the outside knob...tada it stayed open put the chair on the other door and left to go feed...It was pouring and I was soaked in a few minutes...The wind blew hard and the house got so cold. I waited 10 minutes before I got the bunny in. I left all the windows and doors opened for an hour or so and snuggled under several blankets refusing to turn on the heat. All is better this morning.

Well I hope you all have a great day and that the world is kind and gentle to you this day and the days that follow...Be well my friends, stay warm and say prayers for Jen and Chris who lost their baby girl this week. Check out Ang's blog if you have not as of yet... And maybe if you have an extra moment a little one for to you all

Thomas and the Vet

I arrived in record time once I left the farm, I thinking I had the number to let the new vet know I was on my way, again, my rock, my friend, my sister saved my sorry hinny, called the clinic and let them know I was on the way. I arrived found huge dog in car next to mine and Thomas and I got in the door. I filled out the form and sat....Thomas poking his head out of the cardboard carrier every now and again. I had the last time been in a vet office to pick up Bulugas ashes and then on the day she died to deliver her in the kind hands of the Pilchuck Vet Clinic and Hospital...Anyway was sitting there hoping to get in and out. A couple brings in a white Shepard and I break into my silent OMG and resisted the urge to say good bye and prayed...And ask God to wish them enough...Nomas understands this...My heart ached I did not know for sure I just KNEW...And there I Prayed....Then another couple comes in and I see the rage and anger of the woman....She belittles and carries on insulting hateful words...How she had to wait for her dog, mean words...And all I could do is feel sorry for her that she did not SEE the hurt someone ELSE was having how another family was about to loss there beloved dog while she stood there hands on hips, high and mighty demanding that anyone with a brain would leave and not see this vet....I wished her enough... I wanted to ring her neck, I wanted to scream at her that her dog would live at this moment while 5 feet away a family had to see their dog go....I wished them all enough. I asked God to take away such anger, I wanted her to regret such a poor human behavior while I watched all the animals live with enough.....

There is never enough....I wish I had one more minute with Buluga, I wish for one more snuggle from Uzi and I wish for enough understanding....Which I never seem to have enough. Tears are pouring down my face...Thomas has enough antibiotics and will be fine ... I have courage and faith more than enough...Love you all, wish you all a good day.....And just an extra enoughs because you all hold a special place in my heart....Please say a little prayer for the family who put their dog down today as you all know what we do for others outlives what we do for ourselves....incliding al the you all

The Bad

The good

Just a glimpse of it

If I had a choice

I'm not sure this is how I would go about this, I mean the remodel...But it is what it is and I am doing it. There is a huge moving/storage container that sits in the driveway as well as blocking my view of the horses but the good part it blocks the view of the new house behind us. It has been raining, snowing, lightning and the wind has returned. All while Thomas has a had a cold or upper respitory infection which has not gone and now I will take him to the vet walk in clinic in Smokey Point. I too will be kicked out of the house while the clean up team puts something in or on the house that will require all living creatures to go. So I will pack up cats and bunny and leave for whatever required time asked of me. It is cold very cold and the news is asking folks to be careful. The Pacific Northwest is not known for drivers that are able and use to driving in anything but rain. Ice and snow is not common here and those that have not taken up skiing are challenged with the frozen terra firma and do not have a clue on sleet, snow or ice how to walk on it let a loan drive on itty passes are to receive three feet of snow as well. More trees to fall too.

Okay I too have to decide what to do about colors, styles as well as location of things. I had the cleaning crew bring up hubbies saddle which now is in the bedroom rest is is the huge box.

Anyway I know I have not had much time to update you as well as I had hoped...Twice the work, workers and all. There have been more people in this house then ever before. Anyway hope you all are well and have a perfect day. Smile and pray when you think of your farm fairy running around in her funny cow hat and rubber boots and kisses to you all...

I just had to share

this with you all...How a few words could wrap up what I wish I said to almost every perrson I have ever met...yes even the ickie ones. So my friend "nomas" had this on her blog...And I will beg forgiveness for just posting it wiothout her consent...I'm sure her heart is THIS BIG!!!We are about the same age and we both grieve for the same things as well as surrender to others...I have not linked her as I always have to ask Ang to do it for me...I'm a bad blogger girl...

Anyway here it is..

I Wish You Enough!

Recently I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure.
Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the mother said, "I love you and I wish you enough."
The daughter replied, "Mom, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom."
They kissed and the daughter left.
The mother walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see she wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on her privacy but she welcomed me in by asking, "Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?"
Yes, I have," I replied. "Forgive me for asking, but why is this a forever good-bye?"
"I am old and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is - the next trip back will be for my funeral," she said.
"When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, 'I wish you enough.' May I ask what that means?"
She began to smile. "That's a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone."
She paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail and she smiled even more. "When we said, 'I wish you enough,' we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them."
Then turning toward me, she shared the following as if she were reciting it from memory: I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting. I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.
She then began to cry and walked away.
They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them but then an entire life to forget them.
To all my friends and loved ones, I WISH YOU ENOUGH

Very Busy

Well if I had more time you would be able to hear all about the sewage and water as well as the return backup that happened again yesterday. Ang came out to return the desktop to a working order and then we got a sister dinner date that we both needed. The return of the masterserve folks will continue today and throughout the week. I will have to leave the house for several hours on Friday while the toxic stuff is put on or in to kill the bacteria and waste bugs that need to be killed. We are now past the $2500.00 mark of out of pocket expenses and the insurance will be paying as we go. They have been great. I'm frustrated with the plumbing and am hoping to have that handled very soon. Alright now I have twice as much to get done and the wind and weather is on a bender of some sorts. The inventory of what is not salvageable is growing. The art studio and office is a big task of packing Wish me luck. Hope you are all well. The lightening last night was very beautiful, the down pour was not.Okay the pods box will be here and loaded with all that was not damaged and stuff is leaving to be cleaned and sanitized. The carpets are being cut out and the walls and base board are being pried off the walls as well.

The wind is blowing, hubby is back to work and all the coffee is mine, mine! I spent all of yesterday cleaning the train wreck that was amassed during hubbies visit....Well we can't call it a visit maybe an emergency repair and clean up. The folks from Service Master came and said all had to be removed, the stereo's, the base molding , carpet, ect. A shame since it was all done in May o 2005!!!New carpets, new paint and baseboards and all. Anyway we will have a grand time making the stuff disappear. There is a lot of stuff. This house is some 1000 square feet smaller... So ever nook and crany is filled....

So much has had to be tossed. Things that while I was in Japan will never be able to be replaced know it is just stuff!

Bunny is fine, Thomas has made it a mission to try and be a good boy...Little hope he will not try to kill Jonas, so we never let the two out together without me holding one or the other. Slinky is getting use to him and lays on the back of the sofa and peers into the bunny cage. I moved the livingroom around to make him a member of the house...He has a view of the television as well as the chair and sofa. I told hubby Iwas going to litter box train him...It is suppose to be easy. We'll see!

More storms and wind as well as water...Flood watches again here and winter storm advisory with hubby. All with the repair work here should prove a challenge.

I'm sorry I have not been on but the smell and the endless amount of things to get done are overwhelming. And now I'm here alone and will not have hubby here for the help.

I'm tired of the news of hangings and death....So I've banned the television if it has news...Music channel or hgtv....I do not live in a world that has to hear/see the news daily in fact it was a few days before I new that a president had died. Anyway I'm going to have to unhook the puter to haul it upstairs. I'm hoping that I have it up and running by nightfall. We'll see. Anyway it is time for me to get the dishes done, fold cloths and get the basics in order. I may not have water at some point and need to prepare for no washer or dryer.

I hope the New Year is right with you all...

My Favorite Christmas Card

My mum made the best card I have ever seen!!!!
