Homemade mushroom 🍄 soup from a Slimming World recipe and I'm showing you this because it's T on Tuesday at Elizabeth and Bleubeard's place once more. I'm still trying to get through all the organic veg I over-ordered before Christmas.
Here's Luna relaxing in her new jumper. She's now chewed the buttons off one side so it needs a rethink.
Just look at that sweet innocent face. Butter wouldn't melt....... but Lovely cuddly Luna has issues and is quite naughty, in a toddler kind of way, too!
Walking on a very frosty day round the fields where the mud was frozen. Jumper was only missing one button at this point.
Luna can jump high, she loves it on the pond filter and she can clear the waterfall in either direction - even while racing up and down at 100 miles per hour! She can also vault the stair gate and I'm sure she's trying to work out if she can clear the heightened fence to go explore the school field behind!
Luna trying for the circus by walking across the pond frame. She's also tried walking along the edge and fallen off! She's just discovered the dead reeds and has been bringing them indoors to play with.
Better give Sooty a look in here. Poor Sooty, not only is Luna jealous of any affection Sooty gets (and she will sit on him or push him out the way to get all the attention), but she is very boisterous and frightens him so much that he doesn't want to get up or go up or downstairs for fear of getting hurt.
The jealousy is a real concern, what if she is jealous of my little granddaughter?
I didn't want to make Sooty's life a misery either so I hope they will become more compatible in the next few weeks.
Training classes begin this week if I can drive after my appointment at the eye clinic and the drops I'm allergic to.
I was told Luna was very quiet and just sat quietly - wrong! She's totally loony at least twice a day!
On my bed together but apart.
It's a dog's life. Luna is scared of men. I found that out last Tuesday and it is a real issue. My youngest son Richard has been visiting daily to get her used to him. She's happy to snuggle up with him for cuddles - until he stands up. Then she starts growling.
Luna jumped up after Sooty was there or he probably wouldn't have joined her unless I was in the middle.
This is the gorgeous figurine that was my Christmas present from my lovely late hubby, along with a very sentimental card signed by him which had me in bits on the day.
This is a wonderful woodcarving that was a Christmas present from my youngest son, it is beautiful.
So what else has Luna done you might ask - well....
she stole a piece of raw chicken when I had to answer the phone,
whenever I am on the desktop computer she is looking for yarn to steal and unravel - she's doing that right now and she just worked out how to open the lid of a plastic box full of wool,
she ate a big hole in her jumper,
she rolled in poo,
she dug up mole hills,
she walked along the edge of the pond frame and fell off,
she raced round and round the house and garden,
she found the dead reeds in the pond and has been bringing them indoors,
she chases cats, even if I am on the end of the lead - ouch!,
she barked the first time on her 4th day,
she barks at every little noise now,
she will play with anything she can get and looks like she will chew it up,
she learnt to sit and stay, well it's a bit flaky but we are working on it and she will be going to training class this week hopefully.
Sooty is so scared of getting hurt by Luna, I thought he was alright walking with her and I've been letting him off the lead and keeping her on the extender but today on the last part of the walk when I crossed the road then let him off he ran so fast and kept running, he wouldn't stop! I was so scared he would cross the busy roads and run home, and there was no way I could catch him but Luna tried which made things worse. I'm too heavy to run very far or fast, not supposed to run at all with my osteoarthritic knees but I am hoping if I lose more weight, a few stones, I will one day be able to run again.
It's been a tough week as my Dad got a diagnosis of terminal melanoma and I've had to relive my experiences with my late hubby as I've been taking Dad to appointments.
I finally got my filling done today after messing up on times the last time, so it was soup for lunch eventually.
I have to either take dad or go to my own appointments every day this week.
