The last couple weeks have been so lonely and sad here without my little boy, Venture. I know it will be a while before I get another dog, especially since I have to take the carpet out and refinish my floors. Today, though, I did get a new fur baby for my household. I adopted a 5-year-old cat. He got here and checked out everywhere in the house and very much where my dogs were. I don't know what his past with dogs was, but he is very loving and after a couple hours checking out the house (and wanting to check the basement out) he hopped in my lap and gave me kisses and head bonks. It did seem like he was looking for the dogs, so I hope he will be a cat that likes to be around dogs.
So I now have someone to talk to and to give love too. I will still miss my dogs, though. I hope I can get another in a few months to take on walks with me.

I don't know how I can continue right now. Today I had to send my Venture to the Bridge as the cancer had gotten bad enough he couldn't get up and move around, not even to come over by me. He didn't want to leave me and fought to get down at the vet's. He was the last of my dogs and now I am completely alone in this house. I don't have any familybut Fancy, who is out in Bennett, and the few friends I have have families to be with.
I will always love my animal family. I just wish they didn't have to leave so early.

Today we had our Thanksgiving dinner at church. Potluck with mostly potatoes, gravy, turkey and ham. And desserts, of course. I made scalloped potatoes for my main dish I provided, which went amazingly well. I also took two sugar free things because some of us should not be eating those sugar-laden things. I had a crustless pumpkin cheesecake and some cranberry relish. It was the only cranberry, so that went pretty well. A couple of us liked my cheesecake. I still ended up eating too much, but I did better than other years. And I stuck with a little of my cheesecake for dessert and stayed away from those brownies that looked sooooo good.
On a sad end, I found out that my dog has advanced cancer. He is on some anti-inflammatory meds and I have gotten him some liver supplement to hopefully get some of the fluid retention gone, but I am afraid that he doesn't have much time. I almost lost him 6 years ago, but the Lord allowed me to keep him then. I am not really ready to lose him now. I am not sure what I will do without my last little guy. It will be so lonely here all alone.

It seems that everywhere near here the Oktoberfest is in September, not October. I don't know if it is that way in Germany or not. This weekend I found out they had it in Parker. Mostly it was a craft and business sales show, but they did have some German dancers and German band that I enjoyed watching and listening to. I had not been to an Oktoberfest for years, so it was enjoyable to go to it. They also had Brats and one place even had German Potato Salad, which is hard to find around here (the potato salad, not the Brats), so I did have to splurge and have some of it.
On the way to the Oktoberfest there was a booth still open at the farmers market in Parker where the guy sold only heirloom vegetables (mainly tomatoes). Now I have found I like tomatoes if they are in a sauce, sliced on a sandwich or cooked with seasonings and usually melted cheese. The man handed me a taste of one of his tomatoes, though, and it was so sweet that I bought one of them (couldn't afford more as they were $2 each). I have never had so sweet and flavorful a tomato, even with growing my own tomatoes.
