Where’s Louie?

I'm not sure if I should be offended by this or not. Whenever Lou takes the car to go do an errand, Natasha & Stitch act like they've lost their best friend. They will stay for hours at the window, just mournfully looking out, waiting for his return. When he does come back, they are practically doing backflips and yapping with joy.

I mean, it's not like I would forget to feed them for more than a few days ..

 

Oh – the blueberry pie is all gone. I got yelled at for eating more than my share of “his” pie. Hey, you snooze, you lose.

 

The Best Ever …

Yum – we have been fortunate to have some of the Best Blueberry Pie. Our neighbors, Donna and Roger, came over on Sunday afternoon. It was great to catch up with them both. And, Donna was kind enough to bring a blueberry pie. She is an accomplished baker, and makes a pie crust that rivals my Mother's. In fact (sorry, Mom), I would say the blueberry pie is better than what Mom made (although I would give the nod to Mom's pumpkin pie – of course, we haven't tasted Donna's pumpkin pie ๐Ÿ™‚ )

 

Melt in Your Mouth Goodness

The pups were rather excited to have visitors, even though we saw Emily & Ben on Saturday. They crashed once company left:

 

Yum – Dinner

Lou cooked a delicious spaghetti dinner tonight with meat sauce – my favorite. For some reason, the pasta we get here in Maine is better than what we get in Florida.

 

I hope to have some more exciting stuff to share, but I need to get out more for that to happen. It's rained off and on for a day or two. I didn't do too well on my walking today, but will do better tomorrow.

Kathy & Steve took a drive to Nova Scotia, and I will share some of their photos once I get the okay.

 

Hello

Just popping in to say all is well. We are enjoying the beautiful weather. Lou went into Camden to check out the boat and also saw Emily and Ben.

I am still lacking energy (some would say that is normal), but I am now doing a daily walking program. I'm using the one Lou used after his surgery, where you walk for short times four times a day. You gradually build up your time so you are walking an hour a day. The walking is okay, but going up stairs is killing me. Who builds a house with no elevator? ๐Ÿ™‚

The dynamic duo is completely at home. We are working on curtailing the barking. They seem to think we need to be alerted to every noise they hear.

 

Project Armageddon

Happy to report the landscaping project is a success. Everything looks very nice. Here are some preview photos. I need to get some more when I unpack the good camera.

Folks have asked how the dogs are adapting. Natasha recognized the house as we came in the driveway. She went right to the basket with toys for a tennis ball. Stitch – we aren't so sure – but he has been very excited and they both loved their long walk with Lou this morning.
