Awesome day...

Whatta beautiful day and a busy week! I just came in from walking Roxy and it is actually hot outside. It was also so hot yesterday that I had to cut on the ceiling fans. Last night I had to turn my fan up, I hafta run one on me at night as it helps my breathing. I also have a blanket folded on the bed for Roxy and had to ditch that last night as she told me it was too hot! I had to take Roxy to the vet on Monday; she had a little growth that came on her head and we noticed it was growing. The vet looked at it and said it was a cyst and that we will get that off now and I was expecting him to cut it out or burn it off, but he just scratched and flakey looking stuff started coming off and them with a little pressure the cyst came out. He said it is gone and I felt and it was flat. I felt the biggest relief because as I told him I was so worried it might be something malignant. He said he didn't think it would come back and gave her a shot in her little head which was to prevent it from returning. Should it come back, it then will hafta be cut out. She didn't even flinch or make a sound. She has always been a good dog at the vet, unlike our prior two dogs.

I gotta tell ya'll that I ain't used to having to do a whole lots of thinking anymore but my granddaughter Cynthia emailed me and said that she had a science project and she had selected plastic as her topic and asked me if I would answer some questions for her as was required by her teacher. Well first off Cynthia is only 11 but knows far more about computers than I do. She had sent the questions in PDF form. I had no problem opening it in Adobe Reader, but could find no way to answer them in there so I had to cut and paste them over to an email.

Then the thinking began. The person she asked the questions had to be over 55 or so years old so my son suggested Grandma Claudia, although he suggested she just call me Grand Moo which she did! lol...
So here comes 20, I mean 20 questions that I had to think and use my brain on. I took it seriously and did my best as I answered them. I only wish she had chosen something other than plastic. According to my son when he called on Sunday night, he was surprised at my answers (he didn't really think I was as smart as I am :) and Cynthia told me I was very helpful with her project.

As you folks know I have two granddaughters but really do not have any. I do not like to say step granddaughter, so Cynthia to me is just our granddaughter. She was only 5 years old when my son married her mom and she was accepted and loved immediately. Of course Caroline is my granddaughter in my heart and always will be. I can love children whether they are blood kin or not. They are precious gifts from God.

We are crossing our fingers that they will get to come to North Carolina on spring break which will be the first week in April. It is kinda pending as they have other obligations around the same time. I do hope they get home as it has been almost a year since we have seen Cynthia. Oh that reminds me Kristi I haven't got a camera yet, but my son will bring it when they do come home :) I just can't wait. I know I will enjoy it for the blog and other times too!

Welp I gotta go and get ready to start some supper for Jerrell. He is doing well with keeping his sugar in the norm range, but it sure is a burden on me trying to come up with something to eat. I had to run some errands and stopped off at the grocery store to pick up only two tomatoes (hothouse) and the checker out girl said $5.45 and Moo bout croaked right there! WOW, I will be glad when Jerrell sets out our tomatoes!

Thank you all for the comments on Caroline, she truly is as sweet as she is pretty. I have lots to be thankful for!! Yep, God is good!

God Bless!

Awww, I'm glad Roxy is O.K. She's such a cute dog.
I'm glad I didn't have to answer questions on plastic. I know nothing. The only thing I can think of is be careful what kind of plastic you put in the microwave. They say it can melt right into your food and you never know it. Now that is scary!
It's been warm here, but is going to change this week-end. I love the warm part.
Good to see your post today!

Hi Moobear!!

I thought I would respond to your question on my pity-post here on your blog!!

My hubby got my Coach bag at Dillards. I bet you can find one on eBay, or by looking at Also - you might just want to try the website! I know the name of this bag was the "Holiday Bag", if that helps!

Ok, now I'm going to go thru & read your posts!!



Moo Bear, I am glad your dog is alright.

Yes, I have had a granddaughter or two called me for answers on a project at school when they were going to public school. Their parents homeschool now. But my questions were always pretty easy not like your.

It can get hard trying to think up new things to cook with the diabetis. We feel so much better when I do though. connie from Texas

Thank you all for the comments and concern for Roxy. She is just fine now, can pat and rub her on her head, which she didn't like before.
Thanks you Norman for letting me know about the bag. And I do hope you will blog as often as possible.
Clara, them was some hard questions on plastic, but I did learn that plastic was first used in 1870. WOW..

Claudia, I am glad that you were a BIG help to your granddaughter. I had no idea plastic was used that long ago. See, you taught this old dog something new. I am glad that Roxy is all back to being better.
