Little did I know on Monday when I made the dreaded trip to the grocery store and trekked up the two flights of stairs with bags and bags of groceries…that I would be glad on Wednesday when another snow storm hit! Here’s the door to my humble abode. Before I get to this point, however, there is a secure entry that I must unlock (and I’m really thankful for that). Over the course of the past few months, I have figured out it’s faster to just go down to my garage, get the groceries, bring them up the two flights of stairs and leave them at the door. Repeat the process as many times as required…then take them all in at once! NOW, if I could just get motivated to cook for myself…
Snow photo above: the view from my porch. This photo was actually taken during the last snow storm but you get the idea! I’m beginning to think: you’ve seen one snowstorm – you’ve seen them all! 😉
When I was at my daughter’s house the other day, I noticed that Kiana didn’t seem to be feeling all that well. My daughter said that Kiana had not eaten well for the past few days. Kiana was clearly much more lethargic than her usual exuberant self. My daughter took her to the vet the next day for an expensive office visit and tests. Come to find out, Kiana has an extremely low thyroid and is now on medication! The low thyroid explains why Kiana can’t seem to lose weight (I know the feeling) regardless of all that running (well, okay, so I don’t run). Maybe now, I can give her treats again.
In the photo below, she is sitting in front of the cabinet (above the refrigerator) where the treats are kept. She is one smart dog and she knows Grandmom will give in. Kiana will look at me and then look UP at the treat cabinet and look back at me…as if to say “you know where they are – now get me one…purty please!”
