This has been a lazy Sunday. I did wash my bed cover and a few loads of clothes and fed all the pets…cooked breakfast and supper, but that’s about it.
We have had heavy rain here for days and days. Today was the first day in a long time that the sun was out all day.Thank you God. I should have cut the grass but it was still soggy out back. I also had a bad headache and felt sort of jittery all day…so I am hoping to get it done tomorrow or the next day.
Desperate Housewives is coming on tonight…I can’t wait to see how it begins this season.
Amanda still hasn’t settled on a name for the new little baby! I have told her I am going to call him “baby X” ! She is leaning toward Weston…but who knows…it could change tomorrow. (THANK YOU ALL FOR SOME GREAT SUGGESTIONS!) A few of you even suggested Weston!!!
Some of the names she has come up with, well let’s just say, I do not care for them…but then again, I didn’t think I liked the name ‘Wyatt’, but now that he is actually here, I realize that the name fits him so well and I can not imagine him with any other name! God, I love my little grandson and I can not wait to be able to hold the new one!!! Please pray that all goes well with her and this new baby.
This is Wyatt petting Annie. He loves Annie so much. and she is so gentle around him. Wyatt will toddle over and look out my kitchen window every time he comes over, just to see if he can see her out back and call her, saying, “ Annieeeee” lol
We got Annie one day when Amanda was about 14 or so…Guess that means she is hitting 14 herself now. She was at a flea market… still a young pup, with a man who had her for sale. He didn’t sell her and was heading home, so he went to put Annie in a cage. Bless her heart, she got away, and ran like a striped ape to under his truck.
This idiot got in the truck and revved the motor up and was screaming like a maniac for her to come out…Well, she did and then ran like hell away from him again…He started yelling and turned and saw Amanda and some other little boy that was standing there watching him act like a fool. He told them”which ever one of you catches that dog can have her, I am leaving”.
Gosh, I hate to say it, but I was so hoping that little boy would catch her first!!! But, oh no…Amanda wasn’t going to let that boy beat her to a puppy…oh no…not my child…She dived at Annie and caught her first! After some hard begging and pleading and, “Mama, I will tend to her, you won’t have to do anything”; (famous words, huh? ) Annie was soon in our Van and headed back home with us. She was starved half to death and filthy…She ate and lapped water like there was no tomorrow all the way home.
I named her “Little Orphan Annie” and after a while, we shortened it to just “Annie”. Let me tell you…she has been one of the best dogs we ever had. Very very smart. When Amanda got married, she left Annie with me and I didn’t mind, because I loved her.
She is old and almost totally blind and deaf now. I use to love to see her run…she could run like the wind…She can’t run very well anymore, her legs are too stiff. She can’t find her way back home alone and I am so afraid she won’t come back one day, so now I walk her every day.
It is so sad to see how she has aged…
But she is happy…
She is loved and well cared for and she knows it….
And after all….
Being loved and cared for is what really matters most to all of us, isn’t it?
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
