Gardening urge rising.
 Went rummaging again last Saturday with my parents. Well we started with a few rummage sales, but we ended up at a garden nursery, a farmers market in Watercolor, and the Seaside yard sale.

Treasures to be found here
Seaside's yard sale is kind of a big flea market with a lot of people converging on a cute tiny coastal town.

More edible than not from the day's outing. Real chocolate milk from Ocheesee Creamery, turnips, Banana Honey Jam, Lemon Mint, and neat old shelf for the wall.

Our favorite picture of her. A rare serious face.
We learned recently that Maggie passed away in back in Wisconsin. She was 15 years old. When we left the farm in Bear Creek, we decided it would be best for her to stay on the family farm. Two years ago she was already showing her age and instead of being in a strange unfamiliar city environment in her golden years when we moved, she stayed on the farm under the care of my brothers families. She passed away in her sleep. I got Maggie as a year old hyper dog right before my final year in high school. She loved her cheese and skittles. She had a good life on the farm and she will be missed.

Oh Mercy

The unnatural chemical green concoction is back!
It is in reach...
Seriously, a rainbow or two should shoot out of these things when consumed.
Leprechaun and clover squeezings, nuclear waste, or patented McGreen, I don't care, they are delicious.

Saturday Finds

Queequeg is just about her normal self again. She seems pain-free and back doing her usual activities around the house. She is eating well, a combo of wet and dry food. She has to stay on the antibiotics a couple more days as a precaution, but we are happy to have our old cat back.

Back at her bird and squirrel surveillance post.

A new treasure for the wall from going to a few rummage sales this morning. I love rummage sales, you never know what you will come home with.

Diogenes's in your face interface
Queequeg is doing better than either of us thought she would today. She drank some water, nibbled at some dry food, ate some wet food, didn't start bleeding again, and took her meds without much fuss.  She is a little wibbly wobbly still on her feet, but she is moving around and pretty alert.

We went out tonight in search for Shamrock Shakes, since I saw a sign at a McDonalds near work advertising their arrival. Excited, we went to the one near our house after work. Not there yet. *pout*
