Hello Out There

It has been just over a week since Sister's eye surgery and she can see.  Sister and I are blessed. The best Christmas gift ever.  I have spent most of the week holding her so she doesn't scratch her eyes out so this is the most I can come up with at the moment.   My Bella making a snow angel last winter. It is all good.


  1. Wonderful news Donna, I know you can breath now, and sweet Sister is indeed blessed.
    Love this picture, Bella was having lots of fun in the snow !

  2. Enjoy every minute of the peace and contentment after that ordeal for you all. Sister will sit and gaze on the Christmas lights, and on your face, and she's doubly blessed. (And I'm pretty much a believe-science person, though I also believe in fairies and magic, but NOBODY can tell me that such sweet, loyal companions do NOT see COLOR). How do they KNOW? Just like describing Heaven---only somebody who's been can tell you, and only someone who's actually looked out through those loving, loyal, I'm Your Dog eyes can confirm it Let THAT person be the authority. Hm. Didn't think so.

  3. PS Delighted to see this picture of your Bella again---she's the absolute twin to our Sweetpea---gap-teeth at the time, as well. Though Sweetpea does have very dark brown hair, cut in a cool swing-cut like her Mama.

  4. Looks and sounds like..yes..all is good..


    And Bella♥ SO CUTE!

  5. Dear Donna - I am so glad about Sister. That has to be a great Christmas gift. Love your snow angel too. Have a wonderful day. Hugs

  6. As we say here, just conjugate L O V E. merry christmas~

  7. AHH! Sweet Sister! I am glad to hear she can see once again! Yes, when love and health of those we love (furry or flesh) are good, that is the best gift ever. Hi Donna, and thank you for coming by to visit! Anita

  8. Good News is always good to share! Thanks for stopping by French Lique... hugs. Dixie

  9. So glad to hear that great news Donna !
    Happy Holidays !!

  10. So glad to hear from all of you. I'm so behind for the holidays and am busy as can be. Thank you all for your kind wishes and the merriest of holidays to you and yours.

  11. Great news! Great photo!
    Oh, I'm so behind!
    Hope you had wonderful holidays and are off to a great 2015.
    I was running in and out of town a lot. Finally getting some weekends
    at home. (And I don't want to jinx it but I started dating someone. Not
    ready to write anything on the blog yet but ... it's fun and he is sweet and an artist.
    And he's French, which is kind of funny, I guess because of my whole Italy obsession.
    Although, the last Italian I dated didn't work out so well ... time so a little north-west!
    haha! ;)
    Anyway, I hope you are well!!! (other than the computer glitch, of course!)

    1. Oh, I am so happy for you. I know how busy you are and as always, live vicariously through you. I have someone picked out for you. Love to hear about it all and you'll have to start traveling more to France now. I am going to have Matt look you up (blog etc.) and perhaps in person next time he's in Coronado. He's 36, beautiful, artsy, sweetest man on earth and can do anything. A real renaissance man. Hope your new year is as fun as the last.

    2. You are so sweet and cracking me up! I'm still dating the Frenchman and taking it pretty slowly. Partly because he's even busier than I am! Glad your blog is running more smoothly.
      I will let you know if France doesn't work out ... maybe I only need to travel just slightly East. ;)


Someone said comments are the heartbeat of blogs. I love to read your comments and learn so much from every one of you. Thanks for taking the time to talk to me.
