Life goes on....

We've been busy working on the side of the house. I copied this foot bridge from a website to show you what we decided to do with the ugly tree stump. I've been working on taking out those aloe vera (again). I've given away thousands and there is no one else to take them. I've even advertised FREE Aloe Vera on Craigslist. So ..... I'm potting them until I find something better to do with them.
Anyway, when I get the aloe vera out .... we are going to put a foot bridge in that area. It will cover the tree stump :) There's almost a "million" very large river rocks over on that side too. I've been finding "homes" for those too. I'll use some for around and under the foot bridge. Mostly I've been putting them in the backyard planters. It keeps Bandit out of my planters. I wish I had thought of that months ago.
Bandit is doing good today. I took her to the vet to get fixed yesterday. Boy was that an experience! Try holding down a 90 pound Rottweiler in a room full of dogs with two knees in semi-casts. You know, the heavy duty wrap that still lets you "walk" but keeps you from bumping it. Supposedly helps keep the swelling down. And so you can't see all the black and blue and yellow and red........
Oh did I mention I slipped and fell on the pool decking? Life is never dull here.

There's never a dull moment with you, is there? Just picturing the scene at the vet's office ... ROFL.

Deb said...

Rev.Paul: Yes, everyday is like this. I only post a small portion of the stuff that goes on around here :::shaking head:::
Deb: I wish you did too. You know, if you came over here though, I might put you to work ;) I fell knees first (hard) on the concrete - ouch! I'll be ok - thanks.

2 semi-casts????
WHAT???? That is crazy. You are going to have to start wearing a helmet and knee pads around the house.
I would love some of your rocks too...I have a thing for rocks. IT will all be beautiful soon.
I hope this little procedure helps calm down bandit. If not, maybe some puppy Valium will help??
Take care, suz

That footbridge is beautiful. I love the simple design. My neighbors have more than enough aloe so I end up putting my extra aloe in the compost bin with the other yard trimmings. Good grief, you fell on the deck...if it's not one thing, it's another!

Hopefully you and Bandit will take it easy for the next few days. Take care.

Susie said...

The footbridge sounds like a great idea Deedee. I'm with Deb, wish I could come and get some of those rocks.

Ouch.. that is a sad story about falling. Reminds me of life guards always yelling, "No running." Hope they will be all right. Hope bandit will recover fast too.
