Hello! This is Lovina's daughter, Verena. Mom has been extra busy lately, so I wanted to help her out by writing the column for her this week.
Washing dishes, sweeping and mopping floors and watering flowers has filled my day. With having sisters Loretta, 13, and Lovina, 10, home from school, they can help out a lot around the house already. I like to send Lovina after my things when I feel a little lazy. Smile!!
I enjoy helping mom keep her gardens and flowers watered. She depends on me to keep the flowers watered, so I try my best to keep them looking nice. They are nicely hung on our porch, making it look beautiful from the view on the road. I want to help mom do some weeding in the garden if we get time tomorrow. We want to also wash laundry tomorrow, if it doesn't rain.
Sister Elizabeth has a Yorkshire terrier puppy now. She's only had it for a week. She named her Isabella. We call her Izzy for short. She is such a little ornery puppy sometimes. She loves to play and loves all the attention she gets around here. Elizabeth also has a Shih Tzu dog named Spikey. Her boyfriend, Timothy keeps Spikey at his house because he was way too lively in our house for mom. Mom never allowed us to have pets in the house, but so far she hasn't said anything about Izzy. Izzy is most of the time a quiet puppy. She stays quiet during the night and weighs less than two pounds, so she can't cause too much trouble.
Spikey would jump on our beds, waking us up before it was time to get up. Timothy brings Spikey along sometimes, so we still get to play with him. I take care of Izzy while Elizabeth is at work. She is pretty well litter box trained already.
