The Fourth of July Weekend always bring with it a certain amount of chaos. Noise, Screaming, Kids, Fireworks, Firecrackers...and BARKING dogs!!
Today...we did a LOT of THIS...relaxing!! Those nice comfy lounge chairs that we bought for US...look who is using them...and quite happily I might add!!
LadyBug is slowly coming around, but she is still resting more than she did before she became ill. Her face is still not quite back to normal. The whole shape of her face has changed...thinned out so to speak. But, she is eating and she is wagging that HAPPY TAIL again! So happy about that!!
We had several discussions this afternoon about changes that have taken place in this little cottage neighborhood of ours over the years. We have been here about 30 years and like everything else...the place has changed. The people have changed. Usually it is just the younger generations taking over for the older generations. Two notable changes have occurred for us this year. My husband's fraternity brother and his wife owned a cottage just a hop, skip, and a jump from ours. They sold it a couple of weeks ago. We will miss them as we used to go to dinner with them and spent many, MANY hours just sitting around discussing life in general.
One of our closest neighbors who had their place for more than 30 years finally sold their place in the fall. It has been SO strange not having them here this summer. They were the PARTY house....the fun, lively, laughing kind of neighbors that everybody wants to have. But, they were in their 80's and just found the upkeep of the place to hard to handle. The kids live out of state and were not able to take it over. This is a very hard transition for all of us.
Sometimes...change is just HARD. Enough of my nostalgic memories. Hope y'all had a great holiday weekend!!
