Another quick one...

Lots has been happening in our little house lately! I have tons of photos to post.. of ponies, the garden, food (mmm!), stray kittens, fiber, and from mini vacations.. but of course that means that I have to edit them first. And who has time for that?

These were cute even without any further help, though.

This is Ray, our new foster pup. He had just begun a promising racing career when he broke his leg. Now he's all healed up and looking for his new home. Sometimes adjusting to the "real world" can be a little difficult though, especially when you're so good-looking and are used to being King.

He's getting the hang of things quickly - smart boy! If only he were a little smaller.....

Baby did a bad bad thing

During a weekend bout of unexplained insanity, I did something very bad.

I totally should have known better.

But, no.

Lust won.

She's a new-to-me Kromski Sonata. Everyone who asked me when I was getting a wheel.. you were right. :)

Stuck in my head

Often, songs get stuck in my head. This one's been stuck for days, though. And I'm totally fine with that. :)

While Bob Dylan's version is the one that first got me singing, this version by the Swell Season has me smiling big:

You Ain't Goin' Nowhere

Such a great performance, I just had to share!

In other news, Ryan has upcoming appointments at Johns Hopkins and Georgetown. Looks like he won't be going right back into chemo. While that's a welcome thing, it's also a bit terrifying. I guess that's how it goes. Thank you, everyone, for your notes and support.

It begins again

Things had been going so well, but we knew, in the background, that it wouldn't last. Ryan's PET/CT results have come back, and he'll have to start treatment again*.

I guess we went into it knowing that it would just be a break. But the news still sucks.

Thank you everyone for your continued thoughts, prayers, love, and support.

*Knit night ladies - I don't usually talk about it all that much, but Ryan has stage IV colon cancer. I feel now like I should've said something on Tuesday so the news isn't out of the blue. Oh well. There it is.
