Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around us...to touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

Update on our Furbaby


All Nick's blood work checked out good except his liver enzymes which we already knew about as he is already taking a liver supplement.  Since we were back in the area we took Nick to our family vet and he checked Nick out and though a tumor is low on the list, he feels he has a bad sinus infection along with allergies.  He gave Nick a stronger anti-biotic that he wanted him to take for 2 weeks along with his antihistamine medicine and said the next 2 weeks would be crucial.
                             

It has now been a little over 2 weeks since that visit and we returned on Tuesday to have a follow up check.... there have been No nose bleeds...Yay!   Dr. Whitlow said Nick sounded better and feels he is doing much better.  He even said we should take Nick to Seattle as their climate would be perfect for him...let's see, 2800 miles away, hmmm.  Thanks, Doc!!  
So it appears Nick will have to stay out of extreme heat and humidity since this will probably be a lifelong issue.  
                       


We drove to Pine Mountain today for Gerri to get her hair cut by her stylist.  While there, we drove through FDR State Park and saw a very nice Little House parked in the campground.  We got the phone out and took a couple of pics and wanted to share them.  It was really neat seeing one in person.  The owners were not there so we didn't get a chance to chat and possibly get a tour.   These are becoming quite popular and we've watched a view shows on HGTV on this popular trend.  


So for the past few weeks we have been hanging out at the campground watching our little fella pretty closely.   With doctor visits and fourth of July approaching we might just hunker down here before venturing out again.  Oh well, life happens!!!!

  1. Nice to hear all is going well there. Can't say I would one of those huge trailers. We like moving around too much.

    1. Thanks for your comments. We have been nervous about Nick, but he does seem a bit better. The "Little House" was neat to see in person and would have love to been able to go in.

  2. I am glad Nick's nose seems better.
    That little house looks pretty heavy but cute.

    1. The Little House did look cute and we would have loved to seen inside. However, it did look heavy and big. It has been an anxious time with Nick, but glad he seems a bit better.
      Thanks for your comments.

  3. So glad to see that Nick is doing better!
    That little house is so cute, but didn't realize people use those as RVs. I bet they get lots of lookers when they pull into a campground!

    1. Thank you! We have been worried about the little guy!! Hopefully we now know what to do to help him.
      The "little house" had a hitch on the front just like an RV. Seems like it would be awkward to transport it. We didn't see a truck there when we went by. It was nice and cute but looked heavy and tall.

    1. He has been our vet for years and although that is a good climate for Nick's issues, he was kidding. Thanks for your comments.

  5. I have watched several shows about those little houses. They look cool but I wouldn't want to live in one. Just too compact for me. And certainly don't seem like the kind of mobile home that you would move very frequently.

    So glad to hear that your little guy is feeling better. It's so worrisome when they're sick!!

    1. Thank you for your comments...yes our fur babies do tend to worry us when they are sick. It does look as though that tiny home would not be as mobile as an rv which could be a downer unless you found that perfect spot of land with a view.
      Have a great week.

  6. Glad the new meds are working for Nick. Did you ask the doctor who might be paying for the trip to Seattle? lol
    We have seen those "little houses" on TV too. Makes sense, especially if you don't like to clean. hehe

  7. Thanks for your comments, I should have asked him since it was his suggestion if he was footing the bill...ha ha. I would have loved to see inside the "Little House", but the owners were not there.

  8. Great to hear Nick is doing better...Those "tiny Houses" are getting to be very popular...I saw several on my trip last Fall...One at a Flagstaff campsite was really magnicient...to include flower boxes on the windows that could be taken down when traveling...there are a lot heavier than our "Eggs". Take care and enjoy the summer. Horst sends

  9. Horst, thanks for your comments...yes those tiny houses look quite heavy to tow, and I am glad that is not what we are towing behind us. They are kind of neat and on the right spot of land with a great view, it would be awesome.
    Take care....

  10. Nick is lucky to have you to love him and take care of him. I'm sure he is very appreciative of feeling better. I can see how Seattle would be a great spot with regard to the heat but doesn't it rain all the time there? Not much more serious humidity than rain. LOL!

    1. Sherry, thanks for your comments. Seattle would be quite wet but a good, long for us, road trip.
