The last five days were fatiguing. The new school year begun and I always need some time to get to it and start to function. I teach at two schools so everything needs to be done twice. Two lesson plans, two schedules, two different text books. And also two different approaches to students as I teach small children from 8 to 10 and adults about 19 years old. I am also a form teacher of the adults´ class so there are another duties arise from it. It was busy week with little sleep and long consultations.
Today I visited my sister and Smallone. It is amazing how quickly children are growing and developing. Smallone is so smart, so nice and so beautiful. And sometimes so stubborn and artful and canny and shrewd. Just adore her:-)
I was bathing her again. Maybe you remember the whole bathing family, e.g. ducks or octopus. I still have none of them. Still bathing alone. And still in need of rubber duck:-)
Ok, so I was bathing her and she wanted me to bath with her. I have decided next time I will accept this offer:-) It was fun. And I think it was the first bright moment of today.
The second one was a walk with Sunday Girl after the sun went down and the darkness fell. I like this time of a day. The streets are almost empty, just a few people can be seen. The air is fresh, the animals appear. Today we saw a hedgehog and two cats. And as the night is bright, thousand of stars can be seen. Nights can be so peaceful and slow. I like them.
Today is tiring not because of the work, but because Elizabeth is ill.
She cannot eat, cannot even drink (which is much worse). My sister took her to a vet today. The vet couldn´t find any disease, so just gave her three injections to help her keep the meal inside, and to give her body some energy. They didn´t work. Tomorrow she is seeing the vet again. I hope she will be alright. To me it looks like poisoning or something like that. I really and deeply wish she would be ok.
Not just because of her, but also because of my sister and her family. Before Elizabeth they had another spaniel, also a girl, called Nelly. They had to put her down, because when she was about one year old the congenital kidney disease was discovered. The disease was incurable and inoperable. Nelly underwent some treatment like infusions, pills, but nothing worked. Then she started to suffer from pain a lot so my sister´s family had to decided what to do. It was a hard time.
Nelly was a beauty:
