One Flea


I just realized..  Thanksgiving will be here a little early this year.  Where did the time go?  

Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away!

  Last year I cooked.  This is our 'going out' year!  It's fun!!  And it's hassle-free, work-free!  All I have to do is sit there and enjoy the grands!

I am thankful!  Last evening I finished the last of my edits on my book!!  I am hoping and thinking that my goal of early December for release will be right-on!

But what I'm most thankful for...  


is...  

 Summer all year round....

Summer 
 Dear Diary, 

One flea.  One single, simple, solitary, lousy flea.  That's what my mom is obsessed with these days.  Stop. Drop. and Roll.  That is what I have to do the minute her and I lock eyes.  You see..  she looks at me and all she sees is 1 Flea.  The one that got away.  The one that could have been pregnant.  The 1 flea that could multiply and become dozens.  Just one flea.  Ugh!  Gracie.

So glad that things are progressing well with your book Bobbi! Summer is adorable!! Can't believe we are planning Thanksgiving already!

Gracie, one flea is nothing. One day I counted over seven on Koda and when hubby went to lather him out with peppermint oil (which is great to kill fleas on contact and safe for pets) he killed at least 10-15. It was a terribly long flea season here despite Front Line, baths, spraying for fleas, etc. Poor Koda. Thankfully if we get rain this weekend that should help decrease the population.

betty

Gracie, I have one word for you: Comfortis. Chew up the Comfortis pill and swallow it. Mom will never again see a flea on you.

Love,
Janie

Thanksgiving plans sound wonderful!

Gracie, I always ask the cats when they scratch if they have fleas. It's a Mom thing! We worry.
