A lot of things happened this week!
Before I went back to work on Monday,
I created my Fairy Garden.
I've been collecting things for it for a while.
I got the bird bath with a cracked bowl for $12.00 at the ReStore a while back.
The clay house I found for a couple of dollars at Goodwill.
It's first life was as a tissue holder but now has flowers growing into it.
The clay woman was at Goodwill too
for 88 cents!
I bought the plants at the garden nursery and some of the accessories.
But some of them were also from Hobby Lobby when they were on sale last year.
I'm happy with how it turned out!
My roses suddenly exploded along the driveway -
Other gardening news...
In regards to my neighbor and how I planned to put up a privacy fence
next to their section of chain link so I could block the view.
They have a disgustingly small enclosed patio area
that's enclosed with chain link panels.
Mud has washed up onto it and wild trees and weeds are growing in there
and that's where their TWO labs get their outside time.
There nothing to be done about it as they are brought inside at night
and at different times throughout the day. They are chubby so they are fed but
they are always itching and never get out to run...
I decided to plant climbing plants instead.
I also have Catmint growing and plan to add some yellow roses eventually.
Hopefully all that will block out the dog pen
and the non-working hot tub that's been on their driveway for years and years...
OK, so on Monday, I returned to work from my vacation.
I'm training a new girl who seems to be doing great. So that's a positive!
She'll work some nights and weekends.
Some cool things happened.
Not really good things but still kinda cool.
First. One of the girls at work who is a vet tech/receptionist and one of the coolest people I know
and who I plan to blog about at some point is always rescuing someone.
Because of this fact some people brought baby possums to her home that they had found.
She brought them to work and cared for them until the wildlife people could come and pick them up and care for them.
They were so little!
I've had never held one until then.
This girl is also currently caring for a several baby raccoons at her home but she brings them to work so they can get their bottle feedings.
All of us are in love with these little ones!
In her spare time this girl is a horse trainer and she's also a mom to two boys!
Like I said, she's very cool.
My sister's puppies are growing.
There's much debate as to who they will keep. They have both parents and had planned originally to keep a female.
So this is probably the one they are keeping -
There has been whispers that they might keep TWO!
If they do that, that's where the debate starts.
Apparently this guy might be the other one.
He's the biggest and the only one that looks like his dad.
But like I said, there's a debate going on.
I don't want a Husky puppy.
I rescue older little dogs.
Huskies are big and energetic and shed A LOT!
Huskies can easily go over fences and run.
Yep, I definitely don't need a Husky.
Besides my sister would charge me big bucks for one and I don't have big bucks.
So that's good, because I don't need or want one....
I kinda think I will avoid going over to her house for a while though
because it's like an alcoholic going into a bar.
Surrounded by alcohol and being tempted but knowing having a drink would be so wrong for them.
There's this black and white female with sapphire blue eyes...
I hope she gets a new home ASAP.
