Solo's Quality Golden Time, Archie Visits for the Very Last Time, Remembering the Tintin Comic Books & Rekindling my Love of Hats During the Final Days of Summer at the Lazy Vegan!
Summer is ALMOST over! Of course, we'll still have the hot days of September and probably some in October, too...but I'll be putting away my vegan sandals and bringing out my fun vegan boot collection soon. This week was a mixed bag of emotions, with Archie coming up our driveway for one final visit - literally hours before he left for his new house in a new neighborhood! I was feeding the donkeys after dinner when I heard his little meow. He stayed for about half an hour and I snapped some farewell photos and told him to be good in his new location. Who knows...maybe he'll find his way back here ...but I'm hoping he safely settles in and remains with the neighbors who moved. It is already so quiet with Archie gone and the rest of their animal crew. It was also a stressful week with Solo, and with trying to come to terms with the fact that his life is coming to an end (and making the decision to have that happen probably soon). He was somewhat improved, I thought, until I saw him fall down several times in a row. We'll just continue to assess his condition day by day. One bright spot this week was getting an email from my sister who shared the news that Tintin, the movie, is being released in December! I hadn't thought about Tintin (European comic books with the awesome adventures of a young reporter and his fox terrier, Snowy) in years and found my collection in the closet upstairs. To be fair, most of the books I have belong to my daughter - but since I've been the one responsible for their safekeeping for so many years I'm taking ownership! Can't wait to see the movie - and perhaps go in costume!
OMG, Happy Birthday this week to Drew, who turns 13!!! I know I've run this photo before, but couldn't resist doing so again. The older he gets, the funnier the photo above of him taking a bath in Grandma Snap's sink is!
Standing for more parsley!
And Spielberg is doing the movie!
