No power

2 new dresses! Thanks Grandma!

Ready to go!

We saw a bride!

Looking at her...

The truck from the power company working...

Keeping an eye on them.

My mom's leg after the mosquitos attack!

Strange things are happening here. Yesterday, as soon as my mom got home, we had a big storm. First we could not see due to the dust and then, heavy rain. It lasted only 10 minutes but left us without power all night. We called the power company and they came 2 hours later. No luck. They could not find the problem. They were just in front our house, so we could see all the works. They left. Then at 3 am they came back. This time they had 2 trucks. Finally at 5 am the power came back. Then we went to bed to sleep. My mom and I are missing some blood in our bodies. The mosquitos had a feast with us because we had to have the door opened to get some air. 112 degrees is not to be inside with doors and windows closed.

Then this morning, first thing to do.... checking blogs. My mom has my blog as starting page. And we could not open it! We tried and tried and tried... nothing. We tried with some other blog.... nothing. Then we tried using Mozilla. It worked! Now, as my mom is not in a mood to make experiments, we will be using it from now on.

Now, after a well deserved and long nap.... we are ready to visit your blogs again.

I hope you all are having a great weekend

Others have been having problems with blogs today. We haven't because we always use Mozilla/Firefox.

2 new Dresses?? Do you have your own closet?

Wow, I thought it was hot here but it's really hot where you live! I'm glad you got the air conditioning back--we dogs really suffer in the heat. I've had problems with blogs, too, but I keep using IE. Your grandma is a terrific seamstress--those dresses are very pretty.

love & wags,

Peanut said...

Beautiful dresses. Sorry about the power. My mom says ouch your poor mom. Mine would be scratching up a storm. We always use firefox and still sometimes have problems with blogs.

Unknown said...

Wooo woo! (That's my wolf whistle!) Those sure are cute new dresses, Lorenza!

You know how brides need something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue for good luck on their wedding day - maybe you were her something blue!

My Mommy got devoured by mosquitos when we were up in the mountains in June. Poison ivy AND mosquitos. Mommy is not having the best of summers.

Can't even begin to imagine 112 degrees and no air conditioning. I'm going to go take a cool bath at just the thought!

Your pal,


P.S. Lorenza, does it matter that that rose was 5 stories high and in the middle of Times Square!?!?

Hi sweety Lorenza,
How many dresses do you have?
I wish I was a girl too so I can wear as many nice dress as I want.
Your mom love you, no doubt about it! Tell your mom I come over with cream for her leg. So sorry!
Thanks for confirming that my mom clicking at me and only me.

That is way too warm - this furry Siberian would NOT be a happy khamper -

Yes, we were having assorted issues Friday night whilst visiting others - The AO4's dad saw it was related to site meter - so some took that OFF and they worked - but we switched to using Firefox for the time thanks to Eva and Brice's advice!

I'm sorry you and your mom were chewed on sooooo badly!


Moco said...

Your G-Ma makes the bestest dresses. Have her make you one so you look like that bride. We are sure you would be just as beautiful. Grammie says is she gets around insects her legs look just like your moms. Your power company sounds a lot like ours.

Koobuss said...

Hi Lorenza!

Sounds like you had a terrible time. Seems that the power goes out at the worst possible moment. 112 degrees? Yikes!! And no air conditioning?? Double Yikes!! Your poor mom. All those mosquito bites look terrible. Hope that she doesn't suffer with them too much.

What's Mozilla? I never heard of it. It's not that margarine that you spread on toast is it? If so, I think that we may have some of that.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Noah the Airedale said...

Ah we had problems yesterday getting into some blogs including your Lorenza but it's all good today. Glad you have power again. How can we do without computer...aaarrrgh.

CoCo said...

Lorenza, you and your Mom have had a stressful weekend! I'm sorry about the electricity and those Mosquitos stole blood! I don't like those suckers...they are not nice.

I had problems getting onto your blog yesterday via Internet Explorer. You are right, Mozilla allowed me to see your sight...weird huh? I am on Internet Explorer now, and your blog is working just fine. Maybe there was a glitch in their systems. I hope the rest of your weekend goes a whole lot smoother!


Mack said...

Oh you poor girls. What a terrible night with no A/C and all those Mean Nasty mosquitos!

Your dresses are sooo cute!
I wish my mom would sew me some outfits like that!

Molly the Airedale said...

How awful for you with no power and such high temps and your poor mom's legs!
You should have been invited to that wedding with all the pretty dresses you have, Lorenza!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

kishiko said...

Oh Lorenza, It must have been a terrible night for you.
Take a rest, and go for a walk in your new dress!

Abby said...

Hi, Lorenza...

I love your new dresses...

It sure is hot at your house...

Did you get bitten like your Mom...Your Mom's leg must be really itchy...

Abby xxxooo

Thor and Jack said...

Nós tivemos problemas com o Blogger ontem também. Usando IE. Parece que hoje está normal.
Teus vestidos são lindos, Lorenza. Você está pronta para passear!
Tenha um ótimo domingo!


Anonymous said...

We thought your pink frocks looked so good, but now we are undecided - blue is definitely your color also Lorenza. You had quite a ruff night with now power and the heat - my god the heat! Those mosquito bites look pretty brutal. We've been reading about other bloggers having trouble with IE, and we haven't (we use Mozilla firefox too) Hope you're having a nice weekend

Your fashion sense is amazing! Could you give me a makeover??!?


Chinook said...

Two Schnauzers from New England said...

Hi, Lorenza -

You had no power? That's probably why we could not log onto your blog.

We know what you mean about mosquitos liking blood. Mosquitos like Mama a lot too. But they really seem to really like your Mom - we hope the bites are not bothering you and your Mom too much.

We agree with Maggie and Mitch - you should have been invited to the wedding.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Thanks, Lorenza!
Oh, lease come back to my blog to watch my very 1st video that was sucessfully uploaded( big deal! hehe).

Unknown said...

Beautiful dresses! You sure are cute Lorenza. Just thought I'd pop in and say hi.

Joe Stains said...

Sounds like you have had a rough couple of days! I hope you are recovering and regenerating some new blood!! I love your new dresses, especially the blue one you are wearing.

Dexter said...

That is just too hot! Poor Lorenza, poor mom. This bug bites look very itchy.


The WriggleButts said...

You look even prettier than the bride in your new dress, Lorenza! I'm glad you got your power back, the mosquitoes will have to find a new source of food, huh?


Maya and Kena said...

Hi Lorenza!
Those are beautiful dresses! Your grandma is so good at making them!
Sorry to hear you're not having the best of times. No power, mosquitoes, and 112 degrees don't sound very appealing. But we hope it gets better!
Have a great day!
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena

Charlie Daniels said...

TBU reckons there is nothing worse than being really hot and really itchy, so he feels sorry for your Mom. Did you get lots of Mozzie bites too?



Deefor said...

Cute dresses. And they look nice and cool. It was over 100 in Denver this weekend. That was bad time. No power and scratchy mosquitos.


Ozzie, Rocky and Lola said...

Sure hope things are up and working with your electricity. This heat is almost unbearable! We are ready for autumn!

My Two Best Friends said...

WOO WOO Lorenza

It's so everywhere but I think it's much hotter at your place - I hope your Mom keeps you cool! We don't need you overheating! WE love your new dresses!!! You have a wonderful Grandma!

Thor and Marco Polo

Niamh said...

Your dresses are so pretty. I especially like the blue one. You look as nice as anyone at the wedding-they should have invited you to attend.

112 degrees is just too hot. Hope you got a chance to cool off in the pool.

Your friend,

the many Bs said...

hi Lorenza, ouch, your mom's leg looks pretty bad from mosquito bites. we don't know how you can stand to be in 112 degrees. that's really really hot.

we love your two new dresses and as usual, they look very pretty on you. you should be a model - oh wait! you are a model! hee hee


Dewey Dewster said...

Wow Lorenza...

It sounds like you and yer Mom had a terrible power and 112 that's hot...and yer Mom's leg looks painful... the mosquitoes must have had a feast bitin' her.....hope the itchin' went away by now.....benadryl ta the rescue there fer sure....

Can't talk about the web cause we have nothin' but trouble here at the cottage doin' anythin'...sometimes we're lucky we have phone service at all....

Dewey Dewster here....

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Lorenza,
You are such a lucky girl! 2 more pretty dresses to add to your collection... I am sure the bride will be so envious of your pretty dress if she saw you.

Rambo said...

Ouch Lorenza,
that leg looks awful. The little bloodsuckers did a number on your Moms leg. I hope they didn't suck your blood too! That was one bad night. Hope the A/C is back on.

Sami & Baylee said...


Love your new dresses! Sory to hear about the mosquitos attack and hope your mommies arm feels better. I don't like those mosquitos.


Bogart H. Devil said...

Such beautiful dresses for such a beautiful girl!!!!!


i said...

Your grandma is so talented! Those are very pretty dresses! You are a true fashionista! (Hope I spelled that right)

Oh your poor mom's leg. LS always have a bottle of mosquito repellant on standby. Perhaps your mom can get a bottle too.

Southbaygirl said...

Lorenza those are beautiful dresses! Your grandma must really love you!

Those bug bites sound horrible. Mom told me about mosquitos-we don't have many here in california but she used to get bitten alot in Tennessee when she was a little girl!!

I hope it wasn't too scary without power! It looks DARK!


Pedro said...


My mom said she would probably collapse in 112 degree heat without airconditioning. That does not sound like fun at all and the mosquito bites look so itchy! My mom has a few on her legs and they're driving her nuts. Your grandma makes beautiful doggy dresses. I've said it before but she should sell them! You are the best spokes-model around!


☮momoKo said...

I like the light blue dress which you wear. I want to present insecticide spray to your mom.


oh those dresses is so cute and lovely, l showed it to my mommy, hopfully she will sew for me and my sister Dollar.

Fred said...

Tough weekend! Hope everything continues to get better. :)

Petra said...

Ouch! Those mosquito bits make me itch! You didn't have a very restful weekend, did you, Lorenza?

I don't like to wear clothes, but if I had a grandma who made me pretty clothes like your grandma makes you, I might change my mind!

Kathryn and Ari said...

First, may we say that you look as lovely as any bride in your new polka-dotted dress. Now, we must find an end to this awful heat you are experiencing. Mosquitos? No blogs? What's a girl to do?!?!

Ralph said...

Yikes! Hope your mom is feeling better after the mosquito attack!


Anonymous said...

I love your new dresses Lorenza! They are so pretty. I love blue. You look great in blue! XOXO Peanut

Comet said...

Your mom's mosquito bites look very itchy. We hope they don't bother her too much.

Hana said...

Wow, what pretty new dresses! I love flowers and my mom says polka dots are very girly. Those are such pretty fabrics. How many dresses do you have now?

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

And more new dresses? have got it made. My mom hates it when the power goes off.

Lady Kaos said...

Your dresses are very pretty! Your Grandma is very talented!!

MJ's doghouse said...

The Zoo Crew said...
