Summertime and Life is Wonderful!

Our CBW says: Look what Uncle Scott made for me!

Yes, Scott is making a park in their backyard for the CBW; they have a pool, a playset, a hanging tent for naps.  On days she is there for day care, she hates to leave it; but they generally take her to the library as well and she loves our local library lady, “that book girl.”   They have a play room of educational toys and she’ll play for a good ninety minutes until she’s ready to come back to mamaw’s house and finally her mom’s. 

Would you like to come play with me?

And did I tell you I am a great-grandma for the second time?  Little Bjorn was born the 25th to my granddaughter Draya. 19 inches long, chubby and sweet, we’re thinking we ought to make a trip down to NC to meet the littlest edition of cute. Babies popping up everywhere.

Bjorn; the newest darling to the family!

We are out of the heat dome officially and back to humid, raining everyone few days, and I found out that the house plants placed close to the house aren’t getting any rain. So today, after having it rain nearly ¾ inch yesterday, I was out watering plants.  And weeding, an entire wagonload of weeds went down to our chickens who think it’s wonderful indeed.

Ladybear, our white pom has decided no birthing pen for her.  She is in her summer digs -she lives in the Eden Garden, happily chasing out rabbits, deer and all other small furry anything; her due date is near the end of the month.  She has been busily excavating a den under her doghouse to have her babies in.  Normally, by now we would have brought her into the house and kept her in a wire dog pen, but she whines and cries so piteously we just allowed her to stay in the garden.  The puppies will be fine; it’s warm out. Pomeranians are the smallest version of the spitz family, herding and pulling dogs.  Full size spitz can be seen pulling dogsleds or wagons in other countries.  Poms are happiest when able to do some herding and outside when we can let them be.  If it’s too hot or too cold, we bring them in and they complain, stand by the door and demand to go back out.  They have thick coats; our vet says they are healthy, happy and just fine. I know people usually consider them lap dogs, and they can do that, too.  However, they really adore the outdoors.

Past litter of babies; she is a great mom.

Anyway, hopefully will be showing pics of puppies soon.
