July already

Happy Friday folks,
I hope your week is treating you well


Oh the joy of picking up some pretty flowers to take home and put in a vase.
After the heavy rain we had nearly all day yesterday, it is lovely to bring some brightness to the house.
The sun is peeping through the clouds today which is wonderful

Bluebell seems to keep us busy and it is like having a new baby again. We are loving having her around. She has had a busy time, went over to the City to be groomed which is a mission in itself taking her on the ferry. She looked so good and a change to be able to see the Scottie look, rather than the scruffy little dog she was.


Also we took her back to the Vet to have her stitches out after having been spayed.
Scotties are very stubborn, but bright and it is interesting trying to teach her to sit, come and do all those things that good little dogs should be doing. She responds well to treats, even though the Vet said she was a little on the heavy side so having to limit her treats.
Going for our daily walks are getting better as when she first started out, she wanted to stop and sniff each blade of grass and was rather frightened of the cars and buses, but over time hopefully she will get better.
The little pink bows the groomer put on are surprisingly, still on.


This photo was taken at Matiatia the other evening when I went to pick up my husband off the ferry. The sky, clouds, water and all the boats painted a lovely picture and it was the perfect evening.
 Wishing you a fabulous July and I look forward to coming over to say hello and see what you are up to.
hugs
Carolyn

  4. The roses are a pretty color, Carolyn. It's nice to buy ourselves flowers once in awhile. It sounds like you are enjoying Bluebell's company very much. The sky, clouds, water photo is beautiful. It does look like a painting.

    Yes, already July. And we are in hot Summer here.

    Have a pleasant weekend, Carolyn.

  5. Dearest Carolyn,
    Well, this is a happy and bubbly post about your Bluebell and she is already turning into a true feisty Scotty dog.
    Enjoy her and time is passing by so fast.
    Had a sad July so far but being oh so grateful for having had the urge to go to The Netherlands one more time for Dad's sake. I proved to have been so right about that as Dad was so happy to see us and enjoyed every visit before we went on our Danube cruise. We'd planned Father's Day different but instead had to visit him in the hospital. While we were above the Ocean next day he got released but he died suddenly on June 30 in his chair in the garden! How perfect that is. Today, July 5, was his cremation and we watched it via live stream this morning at 6:30 AM and so did Anita in Indonesia at 5:30 PM her time... Strange feeling but this is IT.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

    2. Not the flu Carolyn but acute bronchitis and I'm still not out of it, regardless the antibiotics given... Looking forward to a great relaxing couple of days; much needed! Big hugs,
      Mariette

  12. Dearest Carolyn,
    little Bluebell is such a pretty Scottie-lady! Bad vet who says she is a bit too heavy! (Never talk to a lady about her weight! ;-))
    I hope you continue to enjoy the July!
    Hugs to you and sweet soft strokes to Bluebell!
