Spinsterhood for Allie

It was a tough day for Allie.  The day for spaying.

She could not have food or water after midnight which meant I put her bowls away about 10 last night.  She pranced out to her bowl expectantly this morning to be disappointed.  When I put her carrier out in the middle of the floor she went right in…what an innocent.  I felt so bad leaving her at the vet!

She is back now after the big SPAY and rabies shot and microchipping.

Poor Allie!

She is a bit loopy tonight.  They said it would wear off in the next couple of hours.  She has to wear the collar for two weeks!  And, she is supposed to not run or jump for those two weeks.  She lives to run and jump!  We are supposed to keep her in a cage or small room if she cannot refrain from the running and jumping.  It is going to be a long two weeks!

The good news is that Kate, Jon and the grandsons are coming for a couple of weeks!  Jon will have to return home for work for most of the time and we will miss him but I REALLY need the grandson fix!  The Bearded One and I look forward to our time with them.

For dinner, we had a crustless quiche with kale and leeks.  It was good but the highlight of the meal were Summer Squash Fritters.

The first summer squash of the season!

I have made zucchini fritters before with summer squash but this recipe was lighter with beaten egg whites folded into the batter. Much lighter.
