I stuck close to home today – yes, there were lots of domestic chores to do – but mostly because Abby was not well. Yesterday morning when I came downstairs, she couldn’t walk. She couldn’t even bend one of her legs. So I did a lot of massaging and half carried her outside and back in again. We gave her a pain med and some Recovery. Happily her appetite was as good as ever. If that ever fades, we know we’re in trouble.
Today she’s better but limping and I’m keeping a close eye on her. She’s happy now, lying out in the sun, baking. She does love to suntan.
And she is definitely better. I took her for a back-four walk and she even trotted a bit.
And so I did a touch of weeding. The rain has been a blessing for the garden. The peas are forming pods and the beans are starting to climb. Lots of things are ready for harvesting. The fresh dill is amazing.
The best news I got two days ago was that the current tenant in my “home” has found a new place and is moving out July 15. And so there will be no necessity for temporary lodging with Paul and Pat. I can move right in. And Pat is not charging me for half a month. In other words – it’s all falling into place perfectly. Not a single hitch.
Someone asked me the other day if I was getting excited. And – not really. What is forefront on my mind now is The Hoffman Process. That comes up July 12. That’s what’s up – that first – everything else after that.
But I will start going through the shed very soon – sorting things out – being minimalist.
