I'm still pretty swollen, and I still have no feeling from the bottom knuckles down to about where the photo of my arm ends...other than feeling like I have a horrible bruise inside my hand and wrist every time I make a fist or try to bend my hand down. It's only been a week … Continue reading Healing some

BBQ short ribs
Since I'm still healing from surgery, I'm pretty much functioning with one hand, and I wear out so quickly. Recipes need to be easy and fast to make with minimal prep. This is a super easy dinner for the crockpot: bbq short ribs and sweet potatoes. The ingredients are minimal. It's a dump it all … Continue reading BBQ short ribs
My recuperation buddy
Daisy is beyond thrilled with the fact that I'm laid up. She settles into my lap for the day and nestles down to keep me company. Now if I could just teach her to refill my coffee mug, I'd be all set!
DG won't let the other dogs near my arm. When they wrestle and play, she parks herself on my right side like a stone. She keeps sniffing my arm and giving me such pitiful looks. How does she know?

He had to bust up the ice - even with the heaters - with a big 2x4. I just keep reminding us all … Continue reading Winter water
Begging in stealth mode

Cooper just flat out goes with the "pity me" strategy.... ...but DG goes into stealth mode. Evidently if she can't see me (although she's not fooling me because she's peeking at me through scrunched up eyes), … Continue reading Begging in stealth mode
She doesn't enjoy it. LOL. As soon as she does her business, she's ready to come right back in the house!
...with a good book! I also highly suggest doing so with an excellent cup of coffee and a loyal dog and a crackling fire by your side! I won this coffee cup in a library summer reading program held for adults a few years ago. I was so excited for that program. It didn't make … Continue reading Relax…
The wait is over….
I'm having surgery today. Keep me in your thoughts!
