Back home again.

Jesker is still a little wobbly and sleepy, but he walked out of the vet's office to my sister's car unaided. When we came home he was a little confused about what he was supposed to do, but then figured out he had to follow me inside and walk into the apartment, where he promptly went to sleep and that is pretty much all he has been doing since he's been home.

The vet cleaned his teeth and also cleaned the infected canine all the way to the root and has put him on antibiotics for 6 days. He said he didn't need to pull the tooth, because it was in there very solidly. So now we hope for the best.

When the vet gave him the shot to put him under, it hurt and Jesker got very angry and I had to hold onto him or else...then he slowly got very sleepy and wobbly and pretty soon he was sound asleep at my feet. Then the vet could have a good look at this tooth and tell me what he was going to do to it.

I left him cleaning Jesker's teeth and went home to get my purse and bike and rode it downtown to meet Von. Luckily, I did not get rained on once. We sat on the terrace under the heated canopy and had a perfect view of everybody walking by and only saw a couple of men that were worth a soft whistle from me.

Von had come into some money and treated and told me to order whatever I wanted, so I ordered an ice cream sundae with chocolate sauce and whipped cream, which was served on a stylish dish with chocolate artfully arranged over it, with a fruit in the middle. Von had the cheese platter with grapes and sweetened fruit and salad and a myriad of cheeses and bread of which I tasted some too and they were delicious.


I got so sleepy while I was writing that, that I went to sleep on the sofa for the whole evening and missed the news again. Oh well...

Jesker woke me up early this morning because he was hungry. Of course, he hadn't eaten since the day before yesterday, so he ate a big bowl of food and some Bonzo bones and then went out back for a piddle (his first one). He's now sound asleep again, completely satiated.

Although I had eaten a lot yesterday, this did not reflect itself on the bathroom scale this morning where I weighed less then yesterday, but we all know weight is fickle, so I won't put too much worth on it. I just thought I would have gained weight, that's all.

Here's a doodle I made the other day and colored with brush and ink:

And here's a sculpture that I painted yesterday, it's called: The Golem.

Just some of my latest endeavors. There are another doodle and another sculpture coming up Monday and then that will be it for the sculptures. I haven't made anymore and I don't know when I will. I may make another collage, I'm working on another doodle and, of course, there is that painting I have to finish. I think I will work on the painting on Tuesdays and do nothing else that day. Ha, listen to my famous last words!

Well, I think that's it for me for right now. I'll write more later when I'm really awake. This has all been slumber writing.

Talk to you soon,

Glad Jesker has fully recovered from his tooth cleaning! Sweet dreams...........

Your doodles are talented.
Do you draw it all in with ink first, then paint it, or the other way round? They are very pleasing to the eye.
The sculpture has a character of it's own and even has a name!

Its going to be a balmy day today. Hope you enjoy it! X

So happy to hear Jesker is back home and okay. Good news that they didn't have to pull the tooth.

Thanks for taking photos of your artwork! I love the colored doodles... it looks like it could be the cover of a music CD.

And the sculpture right out of a modern art museum! How wonderful you have the opportunity to be creative. Hope you have a great Saturday.

Love your doodle Irene, great colours. Hope dear Jester is fully recovered, and enjoying having clean teeth!

Glad you post pics of your artwork - love the doodle! It would make a great pillow cover, I think, so colourful and fun.

I'm glad to hear Jesker is back home safe and sound. He'll sleep the rest of the anesthetic off in no time!

It's good to hear you enjoyed your ice cream sundae. You've given me an idea there...

Oh, and the doodle looks fantastic! Love the colours.

Your "doodle" is beautiful! You have climbed inside my head, removed my favorite colors and doodled them into wonderful art!!!

Glad your baby did not not get bad news at the vet.

Your picture makes me smile, the colors are so nice and the shapes are very friendly. Such a happy doodle!

That doodle is beautiful. I liked your black and white ones very much, but on this one your sense of color is amazing and it makes me feel up just to look at it. I do not feel you ramping up as I read your writing, so I'm surprised and delighted that you were able to use the color so extravagantly. I think it's my favorite of all your work.
