Peanut has finally been diagnosed with a couple of things going on 1st he is having hip pain for which the vet is going to start him on some pain medication πŸ’Š.

Lincoln NH date

This morning we got the news that Peanuts ultrasound was normal. I don’t know what is next, I imagine the vet will figure out a plan next. It is a little frustrating that $2000 in to it and no answers. Good thing I love the little guy πŸ•

David did the laundry early and then we went for a ride to Lincoln. The foliage was really beautiful.

I love the back roads.

When we got into Lincoln, we 1st got some gas β›½ then looked for a place to eat lunch. We found a quaint little Mediterranean Cafe for lunch, The Gypsy Cafe. Absolutely yummy πŸ˜‹! We had drinks, a Key lime pie martini which was good and David had a Mai Tai which was good and strong. Them there was the Mezzi plate with feta,hummus, baba ganoush, taziki, olives and fresh warm pita bread.

The Mezzi plate

Next David had lamb πŸ‘ meatballs and eggs in a spicy tomato sauce. I had falafel which was delish! It also came with a Mediterranean salad.

Well we were ready to leave on the Tuesday after Labor day but…. I had a little Peanut that was just not feeling a 100 per cent. We are continuing to go through testing. Tuesday the 22th he is having an ultrasound. Hopefully we will have answers soon. Peanut still needs to have his shots.. ahhhhhh.

My fur baby

Saturday we deemed date night. It was nice we just went to a local restaurant, Ollies. It was close, the food is good and it is reasonably priced. Matter of fact they have nachos to die for, the salad with steak tips was awesome. The salad was huge and plenty of steak and feta. David had grilled swordfish and rice pilaf, he said it was delicious πŸ˜‹

Today I finished another project. I painted Adam’s back door on the house 🏠.

Spent the day with my Mom πŸ‘©. We had a busy day. Barnes and Nobles, picked up some books πŸ“š for Ryker’s birthday. Then picked up lunch from Panera. Bev came and visited at 1ish. Next was cemetery visiting and on to Amanda’s so Mom could see the grand kids and give Ryker his books. We said goodbye for I will be leaving for Arizona soon.

Cheers

My granddaughter tried jujitsu and she loved it!πŸ₯‹

We continue to wait for Peanuts results. We are getting excited about starting a new adventure πŸ˜„.

Getting ready to leave.. πŸ˜ͺ

Saying goodbye is always been so hard for me. I cry like a baby πŸ‘Ά! I will miss my family but I start a new adventure. It has been a great summer in spite of Covid 19. I’ve seen my Mom, my 2 sons, their wives and all 6 of my wonderful grandchildren. I have been fortunate to have seen all my siblings, my aunts and their families.

I will miss the smile on Evelyn’s face when she picks her carrots πŸ₯• 😒 She brings me joy!

Sweet little face
Lots of carrots πŸ₯•

Got some more work done on the wall. Hoping to maybe finish the wall before we leave.
