The SPCA garage sale was a huge success - we raised a total of $42,800, all for our local animals.

I still have done nothing about fixing the computer I spilled coffee on. So I still access email by remote, can't do all the stuff with my photos that I'd like to do, and don't have my writing programs on this laptop.
But that's okay, because weekend before last I had a horrific case of bursitis in my shoulder - something I've not had before - and ended up in emergency unable to move my arm one iota. A cortisone shot, some tylonel 3s and several days later, I can type again, but I'm limiting it to a few minutes a day - pretty much just checking email and facebook. It is, of course, my RIGHT arm, so while it was immobilized I compensated with my left arm and now have a back ache too. And, of course, my garden is still not finished.

And therefore tonight I cancelled the vacation I was supposed to take next week - my annual camping trip with my friends on the mainland. It wouldn't be fair to leave a petsitter with the responsibility of making life-and-death decisions for Shiloh.
So... please excuse me if I continue to not blog for a while. It's all a little overwhelming.
I make no promises about posting for the rest of this month, but this I will say: On July 1st, I will publish my annual Canada Day post featuring my best photos of the last 12 months. Or at least up to a few months ago when I spilled coffee on the ones I hadn't backed up. But whatever I can salvage, I'm sure the post will celebrate our nation in true Life with the Critters style.

Meanwhile, please keep Shiloh in your thoughts.
