Arrivederci

Posted on

The superintendent in our condominium has moved on to a new job. She was a hard worker, never complained and was nice to everybody. She also had a lovely little Dachshund. We’re all sorry to see them go. So there was a farewell party for her and everyone in the building was invited to come and say goodbye.

Always one for an excuse to do a card I had to think of an illustration that would befit the occasion.

Knowing a trip to Italy was in her future and with her dog in mind, I knew exactly what to do.

New Year’s Resolutions

Posted on

Every year we make resolutions. Some are important like quitting a bad habit. Some are just to change or improve your life. And then some are things you just want…

My resolutions are the same every year. To live in a warm climate and have more time to draw and paint. Well I almost made it last year! However it just wasn’t meant to be at this time in my life. Things happened that I had no control of but hopefully everything will work out in the next couple of years. The good thing is that I’ve reconnected with a good friend, have a nice home and my dog is happy. I’ll keep making the same resolutions and you never know, I might come up with some new ones! It doesn’t hurt to dream.

Dentist the Menace

Posted on

As my dog is always chewing something (sticks, dry food, biscuits…) it never occurred to me that his teeth would be bad.  So I was really surprised when his vet said he would have to have some teeth removed as well as cleaned.  I felt terrible!  But it had to be done.  He seemed fine when I took him in on the day and actually trotted off with the technician without a backward glance.  That should have been my clue to how he was feeling towards me.  I knew he was in good hands, but that didn’t stop me from worrying.

I was so relieved when they called to say he was resting comfortably and could be picked up later that evening.  I thought for sure he would be happy to see me but when they brought him in he made right for the door with a glance my way that spoke volumes (of swear words)!  It wasn’t until just before bedtime that he acknowledged my presence and that was only when I gave him a little snack.

Well it hasn’t been that long and he’s already finding sticks on our walks and happily chewing away as if he hadn’t lost a single tooth.

Everyone and their dog…

Now that winter is settling in (at least it feels like it to me) I realize how unusually nice September and early October were.  Since there wasn’t much of a summer (again according to me) I think we deserve it.  And it seemed to bring us together, the subject of the lovely weather working it’s way into our conversations.  Jobs that have to be done in the Fall are more enjoyable to do when it’s warm.  So this year we all spent more time outside taking advantage of the mild weather…
