Jezebel's adventure

My husband's grandfather died in early March. So we ended up getting his cat, a fierce hunter named Lola.

Three days later, Jezebel took off. I went to the pound twice, but she was not there. Then about two weeks ago, I got a telephone call.

Jezebel had been hiding under her house since mid-March. She would cry all the time.

Lady has three cats herself, so she started feeding her and trying to get her to come out from under the house.

Then she saw that her 'guest' was wearing a collar.

It has been a week now since Martha managed to get her into our cat-carrier.

Jezebel is so happy to be back home!

I hope that everyone has a great weekend!

All this rain!!!!

There is a swamp in the backyard again.

At last the birds are happy about it.

We have a pair of crows nesting in the Huge Oak back there.

(They are like a pair of roosters in the morning. Happy, but loud.)

Beer making galore!

In the past three months, my husband has started three batches of beer. First, he made a Porter. Then a red ale in one weekend.
The next weekend he started a honey wheat brewing.

He wants to start a mead again, too. We've learned that it gets better with age!

lol After his grandfather's funeral, the family gathered together to try and get as much of the belongings of this 83 year old man's life organized and put away.

We supplied mead for the family. They really enjoyed it!

Life can throw some curve balls

It hit me yesterday that I need to return to reading aloud.
Just because Pastor Jen at the funeral spoke so well.She's a new member at that church.

The funeral was good. The main pastor had known Stan for years.

The ladies at the church really did a great job of getting a luncheon set up afterward.

I thanked one of them; she just smiled and said "We all loved Stan and Shirley."

Afterward, the whole family went out to the cabin. Everyone together. Robert said it's been a long time since that happened. (He told me how many years, but I forget the number.)

Went to the doctor today

Nothing is wrong, it was just time for my (bi)annual checkup.
I still need to go back after fasting 10 hours for blood-work. Plus, I need to get a new mammogram done.
