Poor Gracie Bell, she had a Vet appt. today, she did very well. Every thing is ok with her she is slow on getting her baby teeth, and her nose cannel is very narrow so she is having some trouble breathing. But the Dr. said it is nothing to worry about she is getting air, I was a little worried about that, she should out grow it by the time she is one yr. old. So she has a clean bill of health, and I might add that it was a big bill too. ha ha  she is worth every penny of it. We are just loving her so much. We are not a complete family. :}

Ok now for today; wow we are having such wonderful cooler weather. I had the day off work, so this morning I was up and out at our Home Depot, buy some fall flowers and plants. They are all on sale, so I went nuts. I replanted my front yard pot with some Mums and Kale and something else that is tall for the back It reminds me of  corn. It is really pretty, I did not take photos yet but I will.  I also bought some Lavender, two Hydrangea bushes. they are so pretty. We have a Mum called Aprils Mum, after our daughter who is with our Lord. I planted that one out front on the side of our garage. She looks so pretty there, some day when I have a while I will explain about Aprils Mum. It is a long story but a wonderful one.

So any way I have had a very busy day off, but it was a fun day. Honey had to mow the yard tonight, it finally turned green again.  It is so nice to have cooler days, tomorrow it is going to be in the low 80's so that is not too bad I guess.

We are getting ready for our Free Fall Fair in two weeks, it is going to be crazy around here again. I don't do rides never have I just eat the food and walk around. lol.  Next weekend is the Johnny Apple Seed Festival, they have such wonderful booths and shows. I will make sure I can go and take photos this time for you all. ha ha   smiling;;;  

Well dear friends I wish to thank each of you for you sweet and welcoming comments to my Gracie Bell. She wants me to thank yo too.  Arf Arf;;;;     I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and enjoying life.     

God Bless

I'm glad to hear that Gracie Bell got a good report from the doctor. You must be very pleased with that!

I'll bet your yard is looking very pretty. I'd love some hydrangeas.

Right now it is 55 degrees and I'm so happy to be cool again!

take care,

Hi Alaura! I'm so glad to know little Gracie Bell is so healthy! What a little cutie. I'm also glad you've had a great day planting flowers. I'm a little jealous ~ it's still so hot here and we're preparing for the hurricane Ike! We boarded up our house tonight!
Be a sweetie and say a prayer for us,
Shelia :)

I'm glad all went well with Gracie at the vet....they also tend to learn at some point when they're headed to the vet!

They definitely quickly become part of the family!

Your fall fair sounds like alot of fun...ESPECIALLY the food! :)

Hi Alaura....Gracie Bell is just adorable and so glad that your fur baby is doing well. I had to take mine to the Vet yesterday, as he pulled a muscle and was limping...but is much improved today. ~XO~ Janet

I saw your name on last week's Pink Saturday list. I came here because of your name. There are three members of my family named Alura. I've never heard of anyone else named that and I've never heard of Alaura before. I like both names. I enjoyed my visit here.
