Homer Laughlin Riviera, Broken Foot and Computer, and TWO Jobs

 
The post title sums up the news nicely.  My paternal grandmother used the dishes in the family cabin getaway.  I love them, therefore, and keep an eye out for them.

Every morning, these days, I use this cup for coffee.  Mmmmmmm.


I have the dishes in these 3 colors.
 
I am working at a trap/neuter/release foundation for feral cats, performing surgery.  Gorgeous facility, aaaannndd.......
Last week I returned to private practice at the veterinary clinic that I retired from 2 years ago as a partner and veterinarian.



 My computer is now officially defunct..... hence the lack of blogging.......
 
 
..............and I broke my foot last week.
 
Other than that and a bunch of other stuff, nothing has changed!
 
Hoping you are enjoying summer in your neck of the woods!

my friend does tnr with the feral colony behind her store. I make the tote=shelters for winter and bad weather for the ferals and we sell cupcakes I make to cover the cost. Such a good thing you and she does for these cats. Thanks.

I do love these dishes--they remind me a bit of fiesta ware. But I am sure sorry about your broken foot. That must be a tad painful. Hope you mend quickly!

I think that is quite a lot of stuff! Two jobs, gorgeous dishes, and that darn foot!!! Here is to a quick healing.

And how did you break your foot? I hope you weren't chasing a feral cat! Those dishes have great colors and nice shapes. I like'em. Working gals need a computer. =)

hi Carol!
so so sorry to hear about your broken foot. That must be awful!

I've heard of the feral cat programs. My sis-in-law participates in this project in Waco,TX. She unfortunately, has trapped several cats in her neighborhood. She has an empty lot backing her property and they end up there and then onto her property. After capturing several last summer-- she reports, that she did see an increase in feral mice! LOL...
Your dishes are lovely-- and collecting something that brings back memories of our loved ones; I think can be fun!
take care and take care of that foot!

Oh you poor girl. Here you start on a new journey only to be way-laid by a broken foot. :( I pray that you will heal quickly so that you can back to the job that you love.

On another note...thank you so much for the beautiful sympathy card you sent me. It meant so much, sweet friend... ♥ Bless you.

Oh so sorry about your broken foot! Hope when you drinking your coffee from your pretty cup your foot is up!

Cheryl said...

Wow...two jobs and two breaks!
You sound like a busy gal these days!

Praying that you (and your computer) are soon as good as new, and that you're continuing to find joy in the journey!

Oh, Carol, that is so wonderful about the feral cat colony (so sorry about your foot!!) and the return to your practice...that has to be just the most rewarding thing ever. My daughter Mandy works closely with the shelter (a non-profit) in Saint Charles, Missouri; in fact, she just adopted two new little boys from there...:)
