at least that is what my sister suggested I should title this post since the last one was titled "catch up" (groan?!)
it's probably as good a choice as any idea that I had!
on Saturday morning, when I made a run to the closest convenience store for a bag of ice to keep the bottles of water cool, I got to see part of the balloons from the balloon festival that took place here last weekend
on Sunday evening I caught this photo of their big dog and our dog sleeping all curled up on the couch
I didn't know when I snapped it that it would be the last such picture I would have the opportunity to take -- because of ongoing health issues, the red dog has now crossed over the rainbow bridge
yesterday I had an MRI done on my lower back --- I would not describe it as a pleasant experience, and I hope not to have to go there again --- I'm also hoping that by some amazing chance it will actually tell them something that will help --- I see the doctor next Thursday
for now it's back to the packing and cleaning and painting
time to get moving
