P is for Peace and Projects!

Elsie, taken a few months ago when we had sunshine!



The house has a sense of peace and quiet about it and we are enjoying it!
I was looking forward in taking Elsie out this afternoon but the weather of late has been dreadful. Elsie is quite content to lay by the door or lay by my feet if I am reading. This is new for her and she is getting use to being on her own.

Although we have always had 2 dogs we have decided right now to just keep Elsie and concentrate on getting the house sorted.

With the bad weather and cold months approaching Sundays will have fewer opportunities for bike adventures so DIY will be an ideal passtime for us.

We have quite a few projects on the cards and I will look forward in sharing before and after photographs on here!

Watch this space!

  7. So glad you're at peace and that you still have Elsie to keep you occupied. I'm sure she needs you as much as you need her at this time of loss. Soon it will be better and you might consider a playmate for Elsie next spring.

  17. Very pretty dog. I'm sure she's wondering where Wilma's gone so will stay very close to you for reassurance and to make sure you don't suddenly disappear.
    DIY - h'mmm - too many things to be done in this house. The list ages and has more added to it each month!

  23. Elsie looks lovely.
    It's funny. We had two dogs, mainly so they could be company for eachother if we were away for a time (this was in our island days, and we were often on the mainland for hours while shopping.) After leaving the island, the male dog became strange and ended up ill. We had to have him put to sleep. The female changed almost overnight, and became very calm and loving. We could never have brought in another dog to upset her again at her age.

  24. I hope poor Elsie is adjusting OK. It's very hard for them when they lose a companion, as I know.

    Glad to hear you're feeling at peace! Projects are always good at this time of year - Christmas is coming, and all that! :)

  26. What a magnificent picture of Elsie.
    She'll probably miss Wilma, even though they didn't see eye to eye.
    I had two Alsations but one was a bit agressive so he was conscripted into the RAF and was titled leading Airdog 170.
    His name was Astor and his father, the dog we kept was called Victor, He lived until he was thirteen.
    Hope you and John are finding some comfort after the loss of dear Wilma and Elsie is looking after you both.
