We went to Kentucky for a church homecoming, and took some time to check out properties near Irvine that we saw on Zillow. Somehow our GPS got confused in the mountains, but we found the property I had my eye on purely by accident. It is everything that I want - a view, quiet, and a small house. The only problem is that we aren't ready to retire for anot her couple years, and can't afford two mortgages. I hope the LORD will keep it for us!

I suppose now you will be contacted by contact tracers.

In Minnesota, the health department is conducting a survey to help the state control the spread of Covid.

And then this happened

It is so disappointing. I live in the city. The rural parts of our state are much more conservative. Many here are shocked that this kind of thing happens in a "nice" place such as Minnesota.

Exactly! I always followed CDC guidelines for the good of the community but now that someone near and dear caught COVID, it is personal. She felt worse last night and went to a hospital. They saw something serious on an x-ray and put her on a breathing machine.
There are still folks who refuse to wear masks here, as I suppose are in other communities, and while they have the right to their beliefs they are mistaken if they think their beliefs will protect them from COVID.

Tina is excited by the garden harvest. She loves the small tomatoes. I picked some spaghetti squash and will be serving it soon.
The weeks are going by quickly. Mia has games 2-3 times a week, and we drive her and cheer her on. She's becoming familiar with the rules and how to play.
We heard from my daughter in South Florida. She was sent home with pay because a coworker had COVID, and when she was tested, she was positive too. She thinks that she caught it on the flight back from Kentucky after Labor Day. She didn't have symptoms though, so its hard to know how or when she got it.

All that do sound fun. Maybe me---but hubby is such a loner that I have given up---have learned to love the aloneness and can die alone and face it. So happy to hear of all you do.

My husband said the vet should have a special "Ferrell Room"!
I've been gearing up for our church's free yard sale (80% chance of rain, so it will be inside) folding and sorting clothes and deciding how to be generous yet limit what folks get.
Plus we have our German student, Mia, who will be here through the school year. She is sweet, enthusiastic, and can cook, so i have enlisted her for Tuesdays (when we send the paper- I'm usually wiped out).

Oh I so agree---we had so many vet trips one month---that he laughed at us and said----at one last fourth trip in a month with injured animals----he said maybe this will hold them together a little while. He saw our animals die there---oh so much sorrow. So many horrid animal endings. Life on the creek is much better---the vet comes here to do our shots and we rarely have injury. Life on the creek is good---we did live by a busy highway and that doesn't go well with animals. We are so at peace and relaxed here. Beautiful cat---we have a grey one too. One of my neighbor rejects. Thank God they have moved. Cat pollution is bad and I have to help them all. Crazy Lady---I guess.

August is pet month here. First Tina had some pain, then Oskar, now our senior cat Shrek has a swollen eye. The vet is really getting to know our menagerie.

Here's Oskar Meyer, a sadder but hopefully wiser dog. The driver of the truck felt awful about the accident. He also dropped by on Wednesday to ask how Oskar was.

I do understand!!! A few years ago a dumb ass delivery man came down here when he was looking for my neighbors and he pulled out and hit my pug. I did not know until he was gone, We had almost five thousand dollars in bills for two broken hips. We both knew then how much we loved that pug. Nothing I could have bought with that money could have made us happier than her recovery. We had to take her to Virginia Tech----which is quite aways---but she is alive and mean as ever and makes us laugh every day, How we do love our animals!!! They bring such joy to our lives, Children tooo---of course.

Yesterday Oskar ran out in front of a pickup and got rolled around under it. We took him to the emergency vet. No broken bones or spinal problems thank goodness, but he is sore. He's at the regular vet for care and this afternoon we'll probably take him home. I am happy we had money to pay for this, although my brother and sister in law paid close to $10,000 to get rocks out of their dogs stomach.

!!!Sorry about your daughter---hope she doesn't have covid-19. So scary. Trip is cute---I have raised many, many kittens and I am tooo old and tired to raise another one. But they are such fun---such good memories of my babies. I raised two two years ago. It was winter and they were horrible---tearing up the whole house. I swore never again---a lot of which because at my age a cat could outlive me. Anyway---enjoy.

Trip has discovered that it is fun to knock things off the sewing table.

Young Trip Hazard is visiting the vet today. If he's old enough he will have a life altering procedure.
On a more serious note, my daughter in FL had been home because a member of her office had COVID. Yesterday when she was dressing for work she got horrible stomach cramps. At the hospital they think its IBS but put her in the COVID ward just in case. Her dad is ready to fly down to help her, although he probably won't be able to see her.

Yes, I joke that I have Bluegrass in my blood.
That brings me to another thought: my blood type is B positive. Could that be why I'm an optimist?

I love this image so much. Country roads are the best!

Keep shining!

Audra Rose Posted - Jul 24 2020 : 04:45:00 AM
After reading about the Quiet Park article in the latest issue of MJF, I consider the country road I walk to be the closest equivalent. This morning I walked into the fog, with birds and insects sounding. By the time I turned back toward home the sun was high enough to burn off the fog and show a clear blue sky. Few cars pass by, and sometimes I'm lucky to spot deer or rabbit.

Lucky day for the little kitten? Hmmm . . . I think it was a lucky day for you! Enjoy your new little kitty!!!

Here he is! And there's a change- he's staying with us.

It was a lucky day for this little kitten. I was walking along the road and heard his meows from the woods. He followed me home and I tentatively named him Trip Hazard because he wove back and forth in front of me. He's very vocal and got along with all the dogs (our cat Shrek was less than pleased). He's also very sweet tempered - I gave him 2 baths and he didn't bite or scratch! A friend of ours has an opening for a barn cat, so Trip will be going to his new home tomorrow.

(Sung to "I was strolling in the park one day")
I was walking with my doggie in July
When some pretty roadside sweet peas caught my eye,
Their pods were ripe and full
So a handful I did pull,
I will send them off to Farmgirls when they're dry.
It gets so hot during the day that I get up a little earlier to feed the birds and walk.

So in this world of the simple and odd,
The bent and plain, the unbalanced bod,
The imperfect people and differently pawed,
Some live without love... That's how they're flawed.
