Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart fail;

But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:25-26

Oh Henry!

Good Morning friends! I hope you are doing well. I hope you are doing better than little Henry. Do you know what this means?
Yup! Yesterday he was neutered. Not an ordinary neuter either. He had one down and one up in his abdomen. Two incisions. So he gets to wear this little lampshade on his neck. ;) He also had his teeth cleaned, they were awful. He had one back molar removed. It was loose. His teeth are beautiful and white now. He has wonderful breath now too. =) He is sleeping on my lap as usual again. Kinda hard to type over this plastic E-collar around his neck though.

I took advantage of our closing JoAnn store and bought this Waverly home dec fabric and recovered our kitchen chairs. Using the staple gun jacked up my pain, thankfully just for one day.

My in-laws gave me this sweet rabbit topiary a few days ago. Funny, because Brian had bought me a moss covered poodle topiary form. I found a cute, tiny sedum called Goldenleaf Stonecrop, to cover the afro and the tail.
If only the form were skinny, it would look just like Henry. The right color and short, sweet ears. We will see how this grows.

Sorry, I have not stitched in a week. Busy doing things around the home. Must pretty it up outside and in for Jacob's upcoming graduation party with all the relatives. Have all the annuals bought and planted now. Need to keep cleaning up garden beds. It's getting there.

Thanks for stopping by and saying hi! I do so appreciate it. I am blessed to call you my friends.Take care now. Have a fabulous day in the Lord.

Reading, Planting and Praying,
Vickie

Good Morning Vickie, Poor Henry is right, but he is where he wants to be right in your lap. Did your JoAnn's have other competition? That is where I like to shop for several of my crafting ideas. They give Hobby Lobby competition here. Your little rabbit and poodle are so cute. Isn't May flying. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

Aww... poor little, Henry--hope he feels better soon.

Your chairs look great, Vickie, but I'm sorry to hear JoAnn's is closing...do you have other stores nearby?

Love the little rabbit that your inlaws gave you--how sweet!

Margaret said...

I hope Henry isn't too miserable, poor thing. :( Not fun to wear one of those collars. :( And ouch on 2 incisions too! Good luck with getting ready for all the celebrations!

Poor, poor Henry!! We've had a dog that had that same kind of surgery with one up in and one down. It will heal fast! :)

Poor little Henry and the cone of shame. I'm sure sweet Mabel isn't making too much fun of him for wearing it.
I like the toparies and I have that exact fabric on my Granny's stepstool in my kitchen.
Don't overdo the cleaning because remember the people aren't there to see the house, they are there to see your family. Enjoy it!

Catherine said...

Oh sweet Henry!!! Hope he's feeling okay!

Pam in IL said...

Aww, poor Henry. They sure know how to get sympathy when they wear that e-collar, don't they!

These nice spring days are perfect for getting the outside work done.

Oooouuuch!! Poor sweet little "puchi-puchi" I hope he will stay right soon. Give him thousands of kisses, but also for the girl. Hope you feel better too, what I mean is that we can live as a "symbiosis". Kisses dear Vickie.

Your fabric for the chair cushions is pretty. What a blessed find! I think we need to share notes for our sons' grad parties! I've been busy too making tons of lists, menu planning, cleaning. You get it, I'm sure. ;)

Beth said...

Poor Henry! I hope he is doing better now. I currently have a cat (Solomon) also wearing a cone of shame and he does NOT like it.

Melanie said...

Awww, the poor little thing. He's going to be so much less stressed now though without all those boy hormones to contend with.

Very pretty fabric! I love vintage-y cabbage roses.

Poor Henry--I know you will give him extra TLC for all his trauma.

The JoAnn fabric is lovely
