I have the MOST amazing neighbors


I know I've spoken about my neighbors behind me - they are truly amazing, wonderful neighbors. Tonight Jerald, who is a FANTASTIC cook, showed up at my door with a plate of chicken catcatorre (sorry if I spelled it wrong) gnocci with sun dried tomatoes, basil and pine nuts in olive oil and a lovely piece of bread. But the piec de resistance was the glass of Chianti he brought as well. I had been mindlessly munching through an unspired salad which promptly went into the trash. Aren't they great????

And I really needed it tonight, especially the Chianti, as Cowboy had surgery today to remove a cyst that was under his skin but had burst and wouldn't heal. He has a very large incision - much larger than I expected - and is in pain and very lethargic from the anesthesia. I feel so bad for him but it needed to come out as it wasn't healing on its own after a week of antibiotics. My poor baby. I am probably more stressed out than he is but it hurts to see my little guy in pain. Thus, the glass of wine was very welcome!

I am so thankful and blessed to have the Coveney's behind me!

Anna, thanks for the advice on my problem with HIH Hallween Medley. I will try that tomorrow as I'm too tired tonight to mess with it. And Happy Anniversary!

What wonderful neighbors!
Sorry that Cowboy is under the weather. I hope he is feeling up to his old mischievious self really soon.

Loved your Halloween Medley! What pattern are you using the NPI and Moonglow fabric for?

Wow, great neighbors indeed! Cacciatore is the spelling - not an easy one, I know!! Maybe Cowboy could have use some chianti too?? Hope he feels better soon! You too!

Now that's a good neighbor. Our neighbor is a chef so we are sometimes beneficiaries of her kitchen as well! Hope Cowboy is on the up and up.

I love the picture of Cowboy with his head on the chair, what a sweet boy he is. I hope he is feeling better, poor guy.

Yes, you have awesome neighbors and are very lucky. That was wicked nice of them. Ann.
