Rest in Peace Rimini

We have lost our wonderful Rimini. The best dog you could ever imagine. So loving, always so happy and so sweet. He could light up the darkest hour and it feels incredible empty without him here with us. We will miss him forever!


The Last Battle

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

New experiences

Yesterday there was no time for blogging due to more important baby things. At 11.00 a.m. it was time for a get together with the Steamboat Newborn Network which held a class in baby massage. It was fun and Loke seemed to like it. After that I had to go to a meeting at work and when that was finished I took Loke to the pool for the first time. He looked soooo cute swimming in the warm water. We will definitely go there soon again and bring the camera so you can see for yourself. The power is back on after a 12 hour outage. So now it's time to catch up on some laundry - but first a cup of coffee!

Glenwood Springs

We spent the weekend in Glenwood Springs. As usual our quality time with each other passed too quickly but it was fun. We went rafting in Glenwood Canyon and later met up with a friend and spent the night at his house. Now cuddle time in front of the fire.

Getaway

We decided to get away from Steamboat for a weekend and went down to Denver. Saturday we spent at the Zoo. It was fun to see all the animals although I always get sad thinking they don't belong behind bars but should live in their natural environment. Like these for example...

Vi provar sittdelen på vagnen!

Never thought I would say it, but the outside temperature has finally dropped a little, fall is here, it smells wonderful and we are enjoying our walks a lot more! I took the bassinet out of the stroller thinking Loke would like to look around a little, but it seems like he couldn't care less :)

Barbapappa!



Lunchbox

I am a lucky mum working in food service. At least I don't have to try making lunch in the middle of diaper changes, feedings and other baby duties. Today's menu: Pork loin with lentils, brown rice, green beans, mango salsa and carrots. Yum!
