i had my first taste of limoncello while in Crete.. and it was love at first sip! Jim felt the same and was ready to buy a bunch of it. however, the people we were with told us how very easy it is to make at home, so i set out to make a batch soon after we got home!
the dogs looked so cute tonight lying in the kitchen waiting for a treat... so here they are! Tasha was kind of grabbing a little nap while Meika kept a hopeful eye on what i was doing. Meika will be 13 years old this month... that's about 2 years past the usual life expectancy of Siberian Huskies, and it's really obvious that she is almost out of time. a couple of weeks ago she had stopped eating and spent a lot of time trying to get herself up from the floor after her hind legs slipped out from under her and she did a belly flop on the floor. it's heartbreaking to watch that kind of thing. so, i cooked up some hamburger for her and got some canned dog food from trader joe's (she was refusing the ordinary thriftway brand), she started eating, we made an appt. with the vet and came home with prednisone, which is a miracle drug in my opinion!! after just 2 doses, she regained muscle control, continued eating if it was the special stuff, and was able to make it thru about half the normal distance of the morning walk with Jim and Tasha. don't know how long the prednisone will continue helping, but Steve the vet said he'd make a home visit when it's time. damn, that will be a hard decision, but i think she will let us know when that time comes.
