Faith, who will be eight years old in April, has never been sick or injured in her entire life. She's never vomited, torn something while running full speed and ducking just in time to get under a barbed wire fence or playing in the mess under one of these junipers.
Here is the final result. And what would we do without duct tape?
She can run around and go in and out of the dog door.
And she can chew on her balls and nyla bones, I think so anyway, after I show her that she can. We'll see. She's really miserable without them.
Poor thing, I hope this wound heals well and really, really fast.

with Jasmine, my greatniece, who will be eighteen soon.
When spring comes, something will be growing in these fields.
For now, it was lovely to see some green grass, weeds or whatever this is. Nothing green grows in the canyon right now.Mist enhances a landscape, doesn't it?

For the latter, she said I need to have a bone density test. I knew this too, but have tried to avoid it. I've had them before, years ago and they were on the fence of being bad and requiring medicine that I felt I couldn't tolerate. There may be more choices now, so I will have the test soon.
About my breathing, I asked if I have COPD. Carrie said, you are on the fence.

I really don't like the sorting part and I've seen on the blogs how people, much more advanced than I in the art of solving jigsaw puzzles, organize the pieces. Much larger piles of pieces.
I have my own method and I suspect I sort the pieces more finely, more piles, than than those more advanced than I.
As I began this puzzle though, I noticed something:
I'm getting better at this!

I finished this puzzle over the holidays. Still only 300 pieces.
I started a new one, also 300 pieces, but instead of cute dogs, it has about a gazillion kitties wreaking havoc in somebody's kitchen.
It's also very cute.
After that, I know I want to do one with a different motif. A city scape, perhaps. Or a painting. Those are mostly 1000 pieces. Too much for me right now.
I have a couple with 550 pieces. After I finish this next one, I may try one.
And work my way up to a city view puzzle. They even have a Stockholm puzzle on Amazon. I only found one and it depicts one of the smaller islands on which the city is built, called Riddarholmen. A church by the same name is located on this island.
Maybe when I get better at puzzles, I will do it.

My neighbor, Joyce, sent me this new year's greeting. I thought it was a great picture, so I asked if I could post it here.
When I was out walking, I saw that cross in the sky that's sort of fading away here.
Joyce has a large veranda with a great view of the mountains, same mountains as my view, but she's higher up, so her view is broader and just fabulous.
So Happy New Year, from Joyce and me!
