A busy weekend

I had a very busy weekend.

Friday, I stayed in town late to go out with a friend. I got home around 10:30 pm.
Saturday morning I got up around 7. The dogs and I went for a walk (even with only one hand, I have figured out how to walk them both, we have a coupler so I can have them on one leash). We got groceries and then around 11 left to go to town. See my dad (aka the Big Guy) was in town so the plan was lunch, the afternoon at the War Museum and dinner. Then the Man headed home and I stayed in town to have hang out time with my sister (aka Aunt C). On Sunday we all headed back to our place to have a birthday lunch for Auntie K. 

As it has been winter, we haven't had too many visitors to our house. Hailey did ok. She was very, very excited at first. She jumped up a little much (Aunt C got a scratch) but with some help of a puzzle toy she settled down.

Phod, was a little excited, but was mostly just thrilled with all the pets he was getting.

As people have been asking about my arm, it is getting better. Every day is better. I can do more and more without pain. The biggest challenge remains things with weight. Carrying heavy things, lifting heavy things, remains a challenge. I am just glad how fast it is healing. I was very concerned that this could be a long recovery. 


  1. After the long winter it must be great to get out and about and then to have a visitor.....no wonder bailey was excited. Good to hear the arm is getting better

  2. Sounds like a very busy weekend you had!
    How nice Hailey and Phod enjoyed time with visitors. I can see in the picture that Phod was so excited and happy :-)

  3. Sounds like you had a great weekend. Hope you are better and that naughty Lee is behaving. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. It's always nice when you get to go out and have fun with your friends. We are so happy that your arm is getting better and you are able to use it a little bit more each day.

  5. My Momma said this winter has just been wayyy to long, we are glad you are starting to feel better, mom's knee still hurts her and it has been since December. We also scratch visitors sometimes, mom says she is still working on that.

  13. Wow that was a busy weekend! I am glad that your arm is healing. We always want healing to be quicker but things sound like they are going well.

  14. Ruh roh, you and I both are doing the one-armed dual dog-walking thing! I've found it to be a challenge (and I'm on week 8 of it). But, as long as a deer or elk doesn't run in front of us, we manage.

    I'm so glad your arm is healing fast! Maybe it will be a lot less than 8 wks for you!

  15. Glad your healing, keep them pups at bay!
