Nitty's home and resting...........

She had her surgery this morning and the one thing I felt good about was the fact that because she gets monthly allergy shots she knows everyone there and they know her.  In fact, whenever we go in they say hello to her first and then I get "Oh, hi Miss Licher"...too funny.  She is the social butterfly of the family.  She gets so excited when she sees all of them....although that might change after today.  She was happy to see me and definitely wanted to go home!  The vet said when she went in it looked "clean" and that hopefully it was just an infected mammary gland or cysts.  The biopsy will be done...I forgot to ask when but I'm just so happy she's back home and hopefully is comfortable.  I was fortunate also to have a ramp for her to climb to get in and out of my SUV.  I got it when my Abby girl started getting older and it was getting hard for her to jump that high.
She's got antibiotics to take again but we got it to the point last time where she was practically swallowing them right away as she knew a treat was coming as soon as she did.  At first I had to stuff them down her throat but she's a smart girl and knew if she swallowed I wouldn't stick my hand down her throat!  I didn't raise any dummies! LOL! (BTW...if you are a first time reader of my blog, Nitty is my Rottweiler.)
After I dropped her off I went to Walmart as it is fairly close by.  I got some "supplies" for the Valentine's Day projects............oh, and did I  mention a couple books? 

Can you guess which projects I'll be making with these?  The bookmark is cross stitch fabric.  If I like it I will make my own bookmarks but it was only $2.50 so I thought I would give it a try.  And since I won't be getting a Kindle any time soon I broke down and got myself some books I spotted the other day and passed by.
  I am a book fanatic lover so I had to get The Book Thief .  It is now a movie but I always read the book first.
and look at this interesting book by Nora Roberts........
I don't read many of hers but this is about Ireland and an Irish family so I couldn't resist!  It is book #1 of The Cousins O'Dwyer Trilogy.

These are both larger paperbacks that I found at Walmart.
 I'm also joining Friday Night With Friends.   I know, I said I wasn't going to join anything or make any commitments but this is only the first Friday of the month (I've already missed the first one) and I need to get some serious sewing so, hopefully Friday nights will be my nights to sew and then once a month I can show my progress.  I am hoping I will get more sewing done this way as the projects are stacking up in the sewing arena.  You can check out this group here and see what they're up to...LOTS!  It doesn't have to be sewing either...anything is fine. 
I hope you have a great Friday evening.  I'll be sewing and watching Hallmark's new series and playing "hover mother" to Nitty all weekend.  Happy Trails!


  1. Hi there, my friend.
    Glad to read that Nitty did well, and is on the mend.
    Hoping for good news from the biopsy!

    Looks like you've got some great reading there. It will only last you for the weekend though.... you are a fast reader *** grin**!

    Looking forward to seeing the finished projects.
    My projects are all working on Spencer's house. It really is looking great, and I'm looking forward to seeing the projects getting checked off... slowly, but surely.

    Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend.


  2. So glad to hear that Nitty is doing well.

  3. That's such good news that Nitty is home and doing well. Fingers crossed for the biopsy. I don't know whether I told you but when Spencer was a 'tiny' pup he had a strange lump on his leg. Poor little thing had to go and have it removed and then we had to wait for the biopsy results. The vet had painted a very black picture and we prepared ourselves for the worst. But it came back and the laboratory couldn't work out what it was! But it wasn't anything horrible thank goodness. The waiting wasn't nice though. Hope you don't mind me telling you this. Your supplies look good. Enjoy your crafting. Maggie xx

  4. The books both look so interesting. I need to find some new authors! Enjoy your weekend fun! Hugs!
