The doctor's appointment went well. I'm "overweight" but healthy. And, it actually wasn't as bad as I thought. I'm just glad it's over.
Tuesday, I took my dear Miss Gina to the Vets, for her yearly checkup. I'm still waiting for the results of the blood tests, but the physical showed nothing wrong. I did learn one thing that I had suspected. According to what the Humane Society told me when I got her five years ago, she should be 11 this year. I was concerned that she was showing some signs of age so early. The Vet confirmed that she was older than 11, more like 13. My lovely Gina Bobina, the Queena the House! Now I'll cherish each moment with you even more than I already did.
A minor source of worry, the past couple of weeks is that I haven't seen the turkey ladies. I figured that they had just found something better than cracked corn elsewhere, but I missed them. A couple of days ago, I looked out, and there they were. Phew! I would miss the girls if they left.
When I got home from the doctor's office yesterday, I checked my mail and found my sign from the National Wildlife Federation. A few weeks ago, I had applied for certification http://www.nwf.org/gardenforwildlife/certify.cfm and, as I fulfilled all of their requirements, I was sent a certificate. I also purchased a sign proclaiming that my yard was a Certified Wildlife Habitat. That's what came yesterday. Now, I just have to find a stake and put it up.
Looks like Gina approves.
Now, just one thing to do to get back to normal. I have to start my walks in earnest again. I just haven't had the energy to go, with it being so hot and, especially, so humid. I have a basic aversion to sweating profusely! Today is supposed to be better, so, maybe, I'll go over to the Big Meadow and see what is going on.
