Both the dogs are recovering...
Bailey had his teeth cleaned and a growth from his hind leg removed and keeps wanting to get at the stitches...
Nova had her teeth cleaned and one tooth taken out...
Sleeping near the fire is one way to get over the vet visit, though it went incredibly well :)
Spent last weekend with my youngest sister... My other sister and mum also visited... Was so lovely to have a girly weekend. My brother in law even made an awesome breakfast for us on the Saturday!
Lots of op shopping and markets were visited... Got some lovely candles from dusk too :) One of my favorite shops, I must say :)
I have been totally blessed :) I was given two memory pillows from Lorraine Lea Linen... I'm in love with one, my eldest wants to score the other one... Hubby gets first dibs! We shall see how he goes tonight.
I can honestly say I feel so loved... How lovely was my friend given them to me... Such a treasure... Feeling so, so blessed!

Monday, I had my friend from down the hill turn up... She was getting my two Muscovy ducks... Was sad to see Snow White leave but it was time... She'll be happy at her new place... There's a male Muscovy there hehe...
Getting the ducks into her car though wasn't as easy... Got scratched up a bit... All better now :)
My youngest and I spent time together yesterday after school... Love spending time with both my boys separately. It keeps us close and I love learning about them. They change so much over time. Amazing to look at the young men they are becoming :)
We had a lovely time. We always hate it to stop... Can't wait for the next time!

That time of year in this household... C5 needles for the dogs. Their yearly protection :) Greg, our fantastic vet, gives them the complete look over at the same time...
Bailey's doing well. Bit of arthritis and a tooth may come out when he goes under in a week to get his teeth properly cleaned. At the same time while being under anesthetic, he will get an annoying growth taken off his hind leg... No more biting and chewing on it! His heart rate and temperature were excellent!
Nova's 13 years old on 1.7.13, so she has a few more issues... Nothing that we can't help with though :) She can only see shadows in the bottom of her right eye now. Greg also confirmed what we suspected... She's also deaf. We make big gestures and she is totally on the ball with her sense of smell. She knows the routine of squatting when going out. She does that on command... When she wanders off we just lightly touch her and she follows easily. Also because she can't hear us anymore, we have replaced it with allot of touch, something she had always loved anyway :) The best part of the visit was finding out that the daily arthritis tablets that we have been giving her, has reversed the arthritis! She may be four years older than Bailey but has slightly less arthritis than him! Yay!!! So glad for that. Heart rate and temperature were excellent also!
So overall a great visit to the vet and also safe from diseases for another year :)

The sheer beauty of our sunsets here is just so awe inspiring... I love it that our views are unobstructed and so special... It's also so amazing how one sunset can change so much in matter of a few minutes. Below is our sunset tonight... Just incredible!
So blessed to call this home... So blessed...

Hubby has been one all his life... From young kid to now... Professionally as well as for fun :)
My youngest has shown great interest in it for a while too. Our eldest is wanting to program plug ins for Minecraft... Hubby's rather proud. Boys and their toys!
My youngest has made six levels on his game... Can't wait to show it off to you here... Very soon :)
This vegetable yields 10kg per rhizome... Very productive. Also it gets sweeter as it is stored longer. Is excellent for Type 2 Diabetics... The benefits go on and on...
We transplanted our pot today and stored some for eating :)
You eat it raw. We peeled ours, we all tried it. Tastes a little like carrot actually. Will see how the stored Yacon tastes.
We put the rest into tonight's dinner of leftover stew :)

The boys and I got to feed some Californian Sea Lions today. What a treat. It's a new exhibit at Seaworld :) There were whiting and pilchard on the menu. Devoured with delight...
They usually live to about 15 years of age in the wild... Protected by man they reach about 20 years of age... The oldest one there today was 23 years old and her name was Amber.
She was very protective of the fish and wouldn't let the other two get near 'her' fish hehe... Plenty went around for all! No one missed out :)
