power outage

i usually write my blog at night when the day is over, hubby has gone to bed and it's just me and bailey. but yesterday we had a power outage at 4.30pm that left us without power all night. i am writing this post on my phone, which is nearly out of battery life. the photos i was going to post are stuck in my laptop so i took these with my phone, lit by a flashlight. it was the best i could do. sorry for the terrible quality.




i have a slew of tea lights and our fireplace on for light and a battery powered radio for music. (i hate silence.) a power outage is bad enough during the day, but a power outage at night is the worst.

"somebody" gets a little impatient if the treats don't come fast enough.

"ooh, you have treats"

"ok, cute face = treats"

"hello!"

"GIMME TREATS!"

she's ok now, but...

our day started out like any other. we went out for coffee and to take some pictures. i got this one before our day went sideways.


as bailey was walking around, she stopped to sniff something. what was she sniffing, you ask? a pile of red ants!


hubby picked her up straight away, made sure she didn't have an ant on her and put her back down on the ground, away from the ant pile of course. when he put her down, she wouldn't step on her front leg. he lifted her up again and her leg was shaking and she wouldn't straighten it. it looked like it was being pulled up by a string. OMG, what happened.


we were 1 hour away from home and it was a saturday. what are we supposed to do? i googled the area we were in to see if there was a vet nearby, that would happen to be open. as luck would have it, there was one right across the street and he was open! [i know, what are the chances, right?] we took her in and told them we think she was bitten by an ant. [that sounds kinda silly now, but she's so tiny and her leg was shaking and she wouldn't step on her foot.] the vet was very nice and looked at her foot very closely. he saw a slight swelling but didn't feel she needed any medication. he said we could give her childrens benadryl for pain but she should be fine in a couple of days without any treatment. OMG, i can't even tell you what a relief it was to hear that.
we stayed home all day yesterday, just as an added precaution, but she was fine all day. no limping. no discomfort. thank goodness.

tour de . . . driveway

we are all about giving bailey new experiences so the other day, we put her in a bicycle basket to see how she'd like it.


she didn't seem to mind at all.


she actually looked quite comfy in there.


hubby walked her up and down the driveway a few times and she totally enjoyed it. then he wanted to take her for a real ride but i was too scared and didn't let him. maybe next time. not!
