Shiny Things 6/14/2018

Summer! The kids are off all-day school, though one is retaking a course in summer school. 🙄 Ranger is doing very well! We thought we might lose him in December, but adding enzymes to his food has restored his weight and I hope he’ll soon be totally off prednisone. We took a family trip for […]

And we Psych and […]

Shiny Things 1/1/2015

Shiny Things January 1st 2015 Things interesting me this week: The old year. New Year’s is always a time for reflection. Shortly after the start of 2014, I got the shingles.
