The Irony's of May

Last week I used the word irony to talk about the excitement of getting our new puppy Morgan Elizabeth. It was ironic because it was the Memorial day weekend and it was also Memorial day weekend when Mindy joined our family in 2006. And then of course many of you know that Mindy passed away last May.

We came home on Saturday from getting the new puppy and discovered that Calvin, our kitty, was not doing well. Calvin "adopted" us around 2009. He was an abandoned Tabby that decided he wanted us to be his new family. So we took him in and in the coming months he and Mindy became best buddies. Calvin finished his journey with us last weekend. We think he was between 16 and 18 years of age, so he had a pretty full life. Who knew that we would lose two pets exactly one year apart in the month of May??? Craig made the comment that next May we will probably just go into "hiding." 😂😭

Talk about irony! We knew we were going to need to adjust to having a new puppy in the house. We had NO idea we were going to have to adjust to losing Calvin at the same time.....Goes to show, you never know what life is going to throw at you. On a happy note, Morgan Elizabeth is doing quite well. She is adjusting to her new home and her new schedule. Meghan on the other hand....not so much! She keeps looking at us with a confused and betrayed look, seeming to ask, "Why is she here, and how long is she going to stay?" 😂

They say it can take 3 to 4 weeks for pets to get used to a new member of the pack. I'm sure she will adjust and eventually they will become the best of friends. 🙏🤞🙏🤞 I'll definitely keep you updated on that situation. In the meantime, the farm keeps progressing and producing. The strawberries are still in full swing and the raspberries are now coming on. Several are almost ripe enough to pick. Yay!! 😁 I still have a great number of plants to get into the ground, but the ones that have already been planted are doing very well. They will be producing cucumbers, squash, tomatoes, and many other vegetables before too long. In the coming months I'll be sure to share updates on the produce as well the pets and hopefully offer a few new recipes along the way. Until then, happy planting!
