My day was sideways ugly before you even woke up. Like bareback riding a charging rhino!!! But there are moments where I do cherish what I do. I just have to remember the good to out weigh the unyielding bad! That is why I have all my animals since they don't allow for bad days-all good with all of them!
I am truly sorry that you had to start out so crappy... and so early!!! I will share my balloons with you:)
I do understand about animals being your saving grace. They are my therapy too..

What is it that you do?

Are you a fig aficionado? I have a little fig tree that's planted in a pretty dry section of a tortoise yard, and I sometimes forget to water it until I see the wilted leaves. This was the first year to bear fruit. There were a dozen or so figs on it, but they never turned purple. They stayed more or less 'white', then rotted and fell off. Are there some types of fig that don't get purple, or is it because of my poor watering habits?
I used to have a rather large & diverse collection of figs. From large to small, dark black or purple to green. Ive sold many off or given away, still have about 20 or so. Watering throughout the Summer is crucial, if not the leaves will wilt and fall like a drought. Without a steady water source your figs will shrivel up. It takes about three years for a plant to really start producing.

Your problem probably poor watering habits, you want a strong healthy well watered plant.

Yes. I can always count on my critters to make a rough day good.

I'll do that soon. Razberri is really different from all my other rabbits though. She's a laidback mini lop. But she's the most different of all the other rabbits I've had or even read about. She won't eat anything that isn't Timothy hay or Timothy based pellets. Her vet said not to worry.

Linda, is it this Thursday that you’ll make it back to the rescue center? That’s my marker for your hellish week to be over.. I’m trying to count the days for you:)
Not until Friday afternoon! Then the weekend happens and that isn’t quiet either. I draw breath on Monday afternoon next week I think

Good morning all, happy Monday hope everyone has a great day [emoji3526]
It's been halfway decent. Some kind of wasp has been hanging out in my Saphire's room for several days. It decided to show itself today and I caught it in a broom. When I brought it to our living room still stuck it got loose in the house. I was thinking oh crap! But then it went to the front storm door and I showed it the way out...without poison or bug guts on my wall. Thank God for small victories...and a few others also. I know I'm ridiculous.

Well, it's lovely that this silly thread is continuing apace without me.
How is eveyone?
I hope you have killed off the leprechauns.
How is the One-Legged Pirate?
And the hedegehogs, jellyfish, penguins and all the rest.
I hope you are all as well as you magnificent people deserve to be.
Life's Good.
But I hear on the ether that all is not well with some of my favourite people.

Hello Adam!!! Have you been digging up many bones?? You may have found one of the leprechauns but others are still full of devilry in the dark. You have been sorely missed here and mentioned on the by-and-by...
I’ll bet you can share some cheer and good will for those in need.
*frantically waving hello*

Well that just sucks.. I love red velvet cake.. especially with the real cream cheese icing...

On the upside, my husband did the keto diet and lost a significant amount of weight! I got to tell you, I was a little jealous.. I watched him eat tons of bacon and eggs... and plenty of other things cooked in bacon grease... nothing about it looked healthy:) (of course you can’t see all the things he wasn’t eating)... I could tell the difference not only in weight loss but in his energy level. It really worked for him and quickly too. You just can’t cheat or take breaks.

Good luck!
That's good to hear. I need to lose weight for my health and I will be able to walk better on my prosthetic. I go weds for a assessment for out patient therapy again. After my accident falling out of my chair and having a operation to reattach the muscle in my leg. Then my original therapy stopped doing outpatient. I kind of gave up after finding my right lung was only working 48%. But I am excited to get back in therapy and get back on track.

Sorry that he woke you up. I know how that is. Once you're up you're up...but he sounds so cute and irresistible...hehehe.
That's the problem he is cute and irresistible. I can't help but to spoil him. After 2 yrs I still get butterflies in my stomach at night. Getting excited to see Opo in the morning.
Am I crazy? o_O

Well you can’t ever give up... Opo told me that it wasn’t an option! Besides, we like you [emoji6]
Seriously, I’m glad your excited about the therapy and you have a plan!
