Today is the Day

As is always, always how it goes, the week is off to a running start. After today it (hopefully) turns a corner and slows down. I called the animal shelter yesterday and the black lab that I picked up on Saturday was reunited with his family--Good news!!  This is also the day that Lucas is having his surgery to have most of his teeth removed.  This morning I find myself a bit nervous thinking about his having it done.  But then, I always am anytime one of our pups has something done requiring anesthetic.  I hope you'll send some good thoughts for him that all goes well.

We are also having a birthday at our office today.  My co-worker and her family really enjoy the outdoors and camping so of course s'mores over the campfire are a favorite.  With that in mind, I have made her s'more bars instead of a cake. Because I've never tried making them before, (at least not in the kitchen!) I did a preliminary taste test.  Carl and I had them as an early morning treat and have given them a 3.5 star rating.  I hope she enjoys them.
Snow is expected later today too.  With the warm  temperatures there's no chance that it'll stay around long.  But we will take what we can get.   I hope your week is off to a good start!  I look forward to catching up on your blogs when Lucas is home and the week becomes a less hurried one.

Good luck with Lucas, hope everything goes well. I have already prayed for him after reading your post. Please post once you know he has come out OK. Take a picture. I would love to see him.

Your co-waorker is going to love the smores. I have never made one. I did tell my husband the other day about making them. They look really yummy.

Best wishes, and a prayer for Lucas. And of coarse one for his wonderful adoptive mom so that she won't worry too much.
The smores look wonderful! I have to make them all of the time in the winter months, along with hot chocolate, topped with whip cream, chocolate chips, and powdered sugar and chocolate chips on the saucer.
Keep us posted on Lucas.

Oh.. yay for Lucas. The big day and once it's over he is going to feel sooooo much better.

Snow? Hope we get a little bit, even if it doesn't last long. :-))

Really hoping for great results from Lucas' dental surgery, I know the older ones have trouble with the anesthetic.

Great that the Lab's 'people' found him!

Those s'mores look good!

Kim you guys are in my prayers each and every day but I will send a special prayer for Lucas today!
I had an old rescue cat that just had 8 teeth removed and he did pretty good for an old guy who had probably never seen a vet before I found him!
You will be in my thoughts all this day and ..hey say me one of those smores!!!

Prayers for Lucas to have a pleasant nap and feel oh-so-much better after recovering from his surgery. You know I'm with you on the anxious waiting to know that it's done and he's safely recovering. I'm sure that Lucas will revel in all the loving attention that he will receive during his recovery! Gentle hugs from me and my canine crew!

Sammy looks SO gorgeous in the snow.

Be good to yourself!

Hi Kim, I hope Lucus did well. He was in my prayers. I love coming over here and seeing the pictures of the pups. Sometimes I find myself saying 'oh, I forgot about Sammy' (or another one) so I'm glad you rotate. They are all so precious!

Great job on getting the black lab reunited with his owners, I spend a lot of hours, trying to reunite lost pets with owners, it's the greatest feeling on earth !

Good wishes from NC and the Goldens that all goes well. I assume they put in a lot of stitches. Otherwise, how would you deal with the bleeding? So glad the sweet lab was reunited with family.
