Not Gone Forever

I recently read a blog that said if you do not blog for a whole month then people will think you have shut down your blog. I have not blogged for a month but I have not shut down my blog. I was taking chemo and was totally convinced I was dying. It does that to me every time.

I have some little critters that take it upon themselves to nurture me and love me. They are more like people than critters to me.

Their names are Honey, Sugar and Precious. Honey looks like she dipped her nose in the milk bowl and no one cleaned it off. She is very sensitive to people's feelings. She follows you to the restroom and sits behind the toilet and waits until your nausea passes and makes sure you are ok. 

Sugar is like a 5 lbs. bag of sugar....just pure love. She came from an abusive home. So if you put her on her back she will stay there until you move her. She loves to have her belly rubbed. She just loves being loved period. She hides from strangers and cowers under furniture and barks.

Precious...oh yes, the man who sold her to us tried to warn us about her. She weighs 2.5 lbs. and when she looks at you it is like she has piercing eyes that look right through you, indignantly. She is a lover and she has no idea how small she is. Precious speaks to people and believes she is speaking English. If she wants something that does not belong to her, she will growl, grunt, gruff and bark loudly until she gets her way.

Precious has delicate bones. Everything about her is so tiny. But the intense personality is what makes her so precious so it was not difficult to name her. She is what she is!

And below is Sugar posing!

So what is up with the flowers? Well there is a wonderful grandaughter living with me. I have had her with me almost all of her life. When the chemo started to make me ill, she just took it upon herself to water the flowers as well as care for me totally. She never in the past, ever liked my caring for flowers. So this told me she not only loves me but appreciates beautiful things in life.

I am trying to view all the blogs I have received which is considerable because I follow lots of bloggers. But I hope to post again soon. Here is wishing all of you a great day!



  1. feel better soon. I hope things are going better each and every day.

  2. so glad to see you posting again! I missed you! Your pups are truly precious. And your grandaughter is a real keeper too!

  3. I knew you'd be back soon, I thought it might be that things were tough. It must be so scary and I'm so sorry you have to go through it. But I'm also impressed how you come back blog about lovely things and never complain. You're brave, and we all need as many brave people to learn from as we can get. Because sometime we all have to rise to it. I hope things will be getting better and better for you soon.

    When I was little I had a picture book with a photo of a little girl with a horse and two dogs. The caption said 'A lucky child. There are no truer friends than horses and dogs'. But I think we can add, grandaughters..

  4. Hi Nancy, glad that you are posting again. I hope you are feeling better! I love the post that Lucy left it says it all!!! I'm so glad that your granddaughter is there with you, and those 3 preious cuties. Blessings~~~Daphne

  5. Thank all of you for your kind and loving thoughts and words. I have to thank Lucy especially this way because she does not have a bogsite I can go too.

    thank you again,

  6. A bogsite, ha, that's probably what it would be! Like the way you're showcasing orange in your house in the latest post, it's lovely. It is one of my favourite colours, and corals/peaches too.

  7. I hope you are feeling better at the moment. My mom has battled a rare head and neck cancer that has metastasized and breast cancer over the past 2 years. It always amazes me of her strength....and how she never complains. You seem to be very strong and positive as well. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  8. Nancy- have been thinking of you & praying. loved seeing these sweet pics of your pups. They are so adorable

  9. Hello love your blog and your pups are so sweet! Hope things are well with you and everyday you grow stronger so that we have the pleasure of your wonderful posts. You asked on my blog about my dried Hydrangeas well there is a right time to bring them in to dry out. I wait until they have changed colors you can tell when they are not as bright and starting to look a little dry on the bush. I simple cut them and bring them in don't leave them out in the sun they will dry to quick and become crunchy if they get soft and shrivel up you brought them in to soon. Sometimes if you bring them in and put them in water if you empty the water out before they wilt they will dry out in the vase. I still have some in baskets from last year. Good luck and happy blogging!! Come back and visit. I have a garden one also www.lovin-country.blogspot.com
