Hello Everyone, I'm back. My poodle is thrilled and I'm busily trying to catch up on all your blog comments and Ask Dr. Bailey Questions from the past few weeks. It's a work in progress and it's great to be back. I love vacations and I love coming home to my routine, work, blog, and garden. That's gotta mean that life is just right. I thought I'd share some pics and a few homecoming stories. It's funny that leaving things behind is sometimes as much adventure as the destination. What greeted me on my homecoming after this trip?
- A really shaggy and motley poodle in desperate need of a haircut! I expected that and he got his belated groom muy pronto. (See before and after pictures below.) White dogs are such high maintenance. (Hmm maybe I should color his hair?)
- High weeds and shaggy grass (seems I have a theme) because all our mowing gizmos broke while we were gone and the guy who cuts our grass couldn't. (See the broken gizmos below. Truly, life is complicated by gizmo maintenance). Oh well, the house was intact and the most perfect spring weather greeted us too. On my first day back, I went promptly to the nursery to buy summer garden veggie plants and seeds and on day 2 I spent 12 hours planting them. (I took a few days off knowing I would need to do this when I got home.) I'm serious about my veggie garden and all of you who read my blog know how many veggies I eat. Judging by the seeds and plants I just bought, summer will be bountiful (I love my gardener's optimism).
- The new rotating surgical table I ordered came, my staff rearranged the treatment rooms and the office looks great. Boy, I'm gonna be livin' high! Can't wait to take that table for a spin this week.
Happy spring to you all and I'll have more posts out soon, Cynthia Bailey MD, Dermatologist
