I cannot believe it has gotten to that time of year; the mornings are cooler and the blackberries are slowly ripening. They are about 3 weeks behind in ripeness because it’s been a cooler than normal summer.
Harvey picks a few, and magically finds the ones that ARE ripe, rather than the ones which LOOK ripe.
We had a little collie when I was a child; she looked like this
Her name was Fiona.
Fiona LOVED blackberries.
She would go out with us to pick them and we would give her a few , then continue picking. Then you would look around and she would be eating them off of the bushes, carefully rolling back her lips so that she wouldn’t get prickled…lol!
But this exemplifies happiness…enjoy!
Yes it seems that is what H’s tummy episode and soreness was, as it was later compounded with a splitting headache and a bit of a temp..
He finally is starting to eat a bit; had rice pudding and kept it down although he is not a huge imbiber of liquids, no matter what enticements I use.
I had gotten him some natural Gravol(it’s just ginger; fantastic for nausea) but he isn’t crazy about ginger so I also got some homeopathic anti nausea tablets which seem to be doing the job..he them twice but hasn’t since so THIS in itself is a good sign.
He and I relaxed this afternoon, he comfy on the couch and me in his lounge chair, and watched old comedies at which he laughed(laughter is also an excellent healer as most of us know)
Now he is snoozing in bed, and will continue to get over this nasty virus even though it might be slowly.
I went to Tai Chi this morning which was a huge success, in that it helps me keep cool at times like this…
