So... it's been a while. I guess now that my computer is once again operational (vid card died in the move) I should make some sort of an update, particularly since my last notice was not so good.

Moved into the house. That went ok. Adopted a baby of the furry four-legged kind. She makes my life interesting.

Today is the first day it has felt like fall (well, second I guess since it was cold and rainy yesterday) which has sparked my soul searching once again. I have that feeling that I need to start figuring stuff out again.

Health has been so-so. Seeing a specialist who is sending me to another specialist, who will hopefully be able to solve the problem. Hopefully it will all be worth it.

Going to try to restart working on my hobbies, since it's been months to a year since I have done anything with them.

I guess that's good for now.

Sometimes I think it's the only thing that staves off the madness. Got to have something that's yours.

Especially when you're home all day long. On the one hand, I can't wait until puppy gets bigger so I can do more things, but on the other hand ... she'll be bigger. She's only 4 months old and looks nothing like a puppy anymore. Already she's past her halfway mark for weight. Or what we're hoping the halfway mark is. :-/

Good to hear from you... (1)

I'm glad that the move went well. I hope that the medical issues reach a satisfactory conclusion.

Reflection is often spurred by changes in the seasons. Perhaps it's the reminder that time is passing, that the things we have been busily ignoring (in the hope that they will solve themselves) are still around. Tends to send me back to reading Rilke, though I have enjoyed David Whyte quite a bit lately.

Yes, exactly. It was this time last year that I was making plans. And I completed exactly zero of the things I wanted to do. It's a bit disheartening, but I guess I can try to get them done for real this time.

Sadly, since the move I haven't had much time for reading. Well, I should say since getting puppy, though it was quite near after we moved that we got puppy. She is still in the "destroy everything I can get my teething mouth around" stage, so I have to remain vigilant. Plus husband keeps trying to leave her unattended downstairs, so any paper product (her favored item to destroy) would be in danger. Reading is one of those things I would like to take up again.

Thanks for the good wishes for health. In a couple of weeks I get to find out what my treatment options are. Although, it would seem that this one problem causes my myriad of other problems, so perhaps by the end of the year I will be in peak health!

I hope all is well with you.

What kind? Do you have photos? Same old crap here, but I'm off to Africa (vacation) soon...

We have a rambunctious little puppy. Well, she's not so little anymore. She was listed as a german shepard mix (I guess that's what her mom was). She has the physique of a germ.shep. she even perks her ears up sometimes the way they do. The other half is pretty obviously black lab, as she is solid black with shorter fur and has webbed feet. :-)

I do have some photos, but I haven't put them up anywhere yet. I'll link as soon as I do though. I'm trying to train her to hold still for photos, but after a couple of minutes she'll get bored and try to lick the camera.

Oooh fun! What part of Africa are you going to? I think it would be cool to go on one of those photo safari's, but I'd be scared to do it. I prefer my dangerous animals on the other side of safety bars. Looking forward to seeing the pics!
