Miscellaneous Wednesday

Can it be Wednesday already? I can honestly say that we've settled back into our time difference and our grandpup Lily has begun to settle in with us, even though her pack gets home today.  I've learned alot about her breed and know our new puppy will have a fun time with her.
Each day we've taken Lily walking and she loves it; she loves playing with my BFF's dog Lexie and also enjoyed the dog park.  She is such a social dog; she hates being left behind.
Yesterday when hubby, Lily and I went out to our daughter's house to feed the cow grain and water some new trees, I saw these beautiful Iris's.  My dad used to plant them along our driveway at my childhood home and my mom always loved them.  I've always enjoyed them as well and the color combo is striking.  They are just starting to bloom and my girl has a huge area of them, so I grabbed four stocks.  You can't see it, but the vase they were in was my mom's; it is cut crystal and I love it as well.
When we were on Kauai, I began looking for special pup items and saw this-thought it was so cute and had to buy it.  I know it will be really big on our new little guy but eventually it will fit.
Yesterday, I went out and got new dog food-Blue puppy food; it is a natural dog food without corn or wheat and is supposed to be really good for them.  I got some toys and a magazine of the breed but wasn't willing to pay $18. on a small collar.  I have to go to Walma*t tomorrow and will look there.  One of my girlfriends here is loaning me her soft dog crate that her sweet dog doesn't fit into any longer.  Once we determine if it the same size we need, we will probably get our own but for now, we will have a crate to bring him home in-who am I kidding, I bet the minute he starts crying, I'll be holding him. I've been in constant email contact with the breeder, 15 emails so far and each day I think of more questions.  She has been so helpful and I just pray that she is as reputable as she appears.  Several of you know what breed we are getting; I will say that our first two choices were miniature poodle and Cavachon.  I love both of those breeds but this pup is the one that I believe is for us; I well remember puppyhood so right now I'm realizing that I'm living in a dream world if I think it will be easy.  Wouldn't have it any other way though, because the hard work will pay off in the long run.
Have a wonderful day.  Noreen

    Mal's wedding is less than 3 weeks away, and I am smack in the middle of dealing with a health issue...and, of course, it's one that is exacerbated by stress! I have been taking it easy so I can heal, but the reality of all the details will soon be upon me! I covet your prayers!

    Love and hugs to you!!

  6. Hello! I love Irises and the more I see them I love them even more! What a wonderful flower to enjoy. I hope we can continue to plant more on a strip of ground we have by our sidewalk. Hope hope.

    Puppies are a delight....they're the cutest things. Much fun together.

    God bless,

  7. Faith noticed tonight that the flowers were starting to bloom. I think she loves them as much as you do. :)

    So glad you grabbed some!

  8. My irises were getting ready to bloom right before we left. I hope they'll still be blooming when we get back next week.

    I'm so excited for you ... hoping that this little pup is the right one for you. I can't wait to see pictures of him! {{hug}}
