I'm almost done w/The Red Tent. It has been very intense and brought tears to my eyes a few times. I see what you mean about feeling vulnerable, Bella Babe.
MamaofThree~ I totally understand, I realize how much time I spend here when I'm away camping or really need to get something done. SO much time, mostly idle or energy scattering.
zavierchick~ we've had many dogs in our family. We continue treatments as long as they still have happiness, they wag their tails & get excited about food. You're a good mama to Sadie! It sounds like she still has the will to live & wants to be there.
This was brought up last week. We have two cats, Pomona & Fortuna. With all of the spring babies, there have been a few mutilated chicks brought to our deck.. gruesome. Yesterday I was under the deck filling up our watering can & I saw a baby animal, swarmed w/flies.
When dh got home he buried it, it was a bunny. Last night we were eating & heard what sounded like a squeak toy & it was moving... we looked out to see Pomona running towards the deck w/something. Fortuna was in hot pursuit. I ran down under the deck & they had another bunny, chasing it around our bags of potting soil. I was trying to keep them away & chase it back to the thicket at the same time. We had it in a basket a couple of times but hesitated.. still wondering if we were intervening in the higher order of things. We managed to get the bunny safely into the thicket, kitties inside. Now I don't want to let them out,b ut know they'll start spraying in defiance. I don't want to interfere in the food chain, but these cats are fed by me, so I'm already interfering. I'll let them out & hope to hear the squeak... and go out wielding the broom again. I bet the whole thing was funny to watch from the park.
Oh, so... I received the Wonderwash
that I had posted here. It's alright, it works great for lightly soiled stuff... but I don't trust it for my dishcloths or dd's diapers.
