Life is challenging sometimes isn't it? Lots of friends and family in blogland and Real Life are facing some uphill battles lately.
When will the downhill-lean-back-enjoy-the-ride part begin?
Our sweet Maven is facing that uphill-seems-like-it-will-never-end battle at the moment, but I see breezy, downhill, happy moments ahead for her and us. Please if you have a moment to send a positive thought her way, it is so appreciated.
The house has been invaded by cats while The Maven hangs out here in "the hills" with us. And cousins and Stanley the Greyhound. We were "full up" with critters and people over the Maven's birthday weekend.
Going to just let some pictures flow...

View from dog park. Calif pooches really get some great real estate.
Hazy view that reminds me of the Blue Ridge.
Celeb sighting!!!! Lassie!
Darcy's got it all figured out...
And for my friends and family facing those endless uphill climbs, may the wind soon be at your back as you take that lovely, effortless, downhill ride with blue skies above your head and the sun shining on your face and in your heart.

Burning of cast to follow.
Two weeks in splint and then PT!
