Sorry to have dropped the news of my mother and then disappeared, it's not very nice and I'm sorry. I've had company now since Thursday from Holland and I'm so tired when I finally get to my room at night that all I have done is surfed to see what the rest of you are up too..but nothing more.
I spoke with my Dad Friday and my mother is rallying again! Talk about fighting spirit..that woman has it in gobs and gobs..which is wonderful!!! The doctor's are talking about sending her home early this week. She is still weak and still dying but she isn't ready yet and we are happy about this.
With the weight of my mother's destiny not worrying me anymore for the moment I've been able to enjoy the mating of Isabella and Dibbes from Holland much more and my Holland friends whom I have written too for 8 years and now finally met..it's nice to meet people you've written too for so many years and find the same person..sometimes you write someone and they seem very friendly, they sign their name- Hugs from...blah blah blah but when you meet them you never get an acutal hug...well, it's not that way with my Dutch friend..she writes hugs and love ya and I hear her say it too me and she gives me big Dutch hugs..I love that. I love being able to feel comfortable with someone I've never met.
We've had a couple good matings between Dibbes and Isabella..I truly never thought the feisty Italian would let anyone near her rear end but she likes Dibbes and he was so gentle with her...in the middle of the act she was kissing his side of his face..it was so cute..seriously if I wasn't holding a huge leonberger still I would have taken a photo..
Now they both seem uninterested in any further matings so let's hope their doggy instincts are telling them they've done their job and we can look forward to puppies around the 20th of June hopefully!!!
Since the Dutch aren't leaving until Tuesday evening we've just been relaxing in the sun and taking lovely walks around here. The Dutch are having such a time with all the hills around here. Apparently Holland is quite flat..so it's funny watching them..I of course do not laugh aloud because I'm breathing just as hard and I LIVE here all the time...but it's nice to not be the only one huffing and puffing on the walks..hahahaha.. They've also enjoyed my cooking which always pleases me...I made pizza yesterday and they asked why I didn't start a bake shop or something because I was really good!! Getting compliments like that is plenty for me..I don't need to open a shop in order to hear things like that and it saves me the paperwork of running my own business..hahahahaha...but I adore cooking for people and having them enjoy it!!
I promise to be more regular about writing once my company is gone. I appreciate more then you know the support given too me with my Mother's condition. It won't be easy when the time comes and it's something that I've had to learn to accept living as I do so far away...but I'm glad my mom is a fighter and I hope she keeps on fighting for awhile at least...
Photos today are these beautiful blue flowers that are all over the forest ground right now..maybe Anonymous knows what they are called...since Anonymous seems to know other things I don't know...hahahaha...which is good...not being mean when I write that...and the other photo is a love photo between Dibbes and Isabella..
Until next time my friends..
