Summer Full Grandchildren Moon
Vega the wonder dog update. Now the focus shifts to Vega. Who has learned to open the patio door, both ways, with a quick twist of her super strong neck. Last night Kate and I sat outside reading and talking, a pleasant evening. Vega looked inside, saw her sister Rigel and Kona waiting to come outside. She did what any nice big sister would do. She went over and opened up the door, letting the two out. Of course, like most three year olds she does not close the door.
Hilo goes into the vet today to get her kidney values. We have a little bit of hope that her condition will have improved since her physical. Not likely, but she does seem to feel better now than she has.
Working at memorizing verb conjugations while I’m off the weekly chapter preparations. Took a yellow tablet to the nightstand last night, reading the perfect tense endings just before I went off to sleep. Sure enough, I dreamed of Julius Caesar and the Appian Way. No. But, I do think I remembered the perfect tense endings. We’ll see later in the week.
At 2pm today a designer from Mickman’s comes by to give us an estimate on a water feature for the two patio areas where we’ve had trouble keeping plants alive. I want something simple, two-levels, with enough noise to shut out the minimal traffic noise from Round Lake Boulevard. Hard to say what the cost will be until he looks at the site.
(you know. something like the pic. just kidding.)
Now outside for a bit more weeding in the cool of the morning, then preparations for my tour tomorrow morning. China, my favorite.
