I have always loved going to our State Fair, so why did I not like it this year?
Maybe because we got a late start from having to pick up our rental car this morning. (We had an accident with our van on the 13th and it's in the shop now) Maybe because I have only slept about 5 hours a night for the past 4 nights. Maybe because when we did get there, after driving 2 hours, the parking people put us in a spot, then made us move, twice! Maybe because it was 93 degrees. Maybe because it seemed there were more people than ever there and you couldn't get near anything to see it, get anything to drink or eat or even get to the bathroom. Maybe because the fair just wasn't as good as usual, which lots of people have said.Or am I getting too old for
it. It was senior citizen day and I could have gotten in free but did't realize it and bought an advance sale discount ticket . Anyway, hubby and I are too tired to think tonight, except we are thinking we might not go again.
One good thing....we walked for 2 hours there, so it was a nice workout!

I know it's been a long time since I blogged and I apologise for that. I guess I have been adjusting to our new home and then being outdoors working in my herb garden and
making new friends when I go on my many daily walks.
And I am also learning to use my new tablet, as you can see!
With all that I have been doing you would think I would have lost a few pounds but no, they keep hanging on. I havestarted going back to what worked for me in the past, only NO cheating this time. I was telling myself a little bit more, a little nibble, a late night snack wouldn't hurt. Well, it did! Time to face reality!
I will start my update from yesterday. We tookmy dear sweet kitty Maxie to a new groomer to save some money and it wad a huge mistake. She cut his skin in several places and one of them is quite a large hole. Not much bleeding so it's omly on the surface but she caused him so much pain. She had a muzzle on him so he couldn't bite or see and I was thete when she took it off and he had tears in his eyes! My heart is just breaking! I feel so bad that I am sick!
I stayed up all night to watch him and have put Neosporan on the big one and wrapped it with gauze to keep him from licking and irritating it. He seems fine and is eating after throwing up a lot at 4:00 this morning. She said it will heal in a couple days and that this hsppens all the time, especially to the older, bony cats. Maxie is 17.
Please say a little prayer for my beloved kitty if you will. And one for me to get rid of my guilt. THANK YOU,

Thank you for all the encouraging comments. I know now that I`m not the only one struggling with the winter this year.
Today was a "warmer" day, in the 40s, so I got out there and walked, breathed in the fresh air and shed some stress. It felt great! It will turn cold again but with a nice day or two it gives me hope that Spring is trying to break through, and it will!
I hope you got to enjoy your day today too!
