Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you’ve had a good week and are looking forward to a great weekend!
I’m joining in with Random 5 Friday with Nancy of A Rural Journal. Follow the link to Nancy’s blog to find other bloggers sharing their randoms!
The leaves don’t seem to want to change color this fall. We still have a lot of green left on the trees, and a lot of the leaves that have fallen are brown. Here are some photos I took last Sunday around the house.
I saw my orthopedic doctor this week, and he turned me loose. He said the break in my foot was 100 percent healed in some areas. It’s still not healed completely at the edge, but it will heal, he said.
I can wear any shoe I want now as long as it doesn’t hurt. And my activities aren’t limited in any way. Just watch for pain, he said.
I asked him how to avoid breaking it again, and he said to avoid turning my foot on the side and falling.
We laughed about it, and I clarified by asking how could I avoid another stress fracture, because this break probably started as a stress fracture.
He said weight was the big issue there.
I’m working on it.
Larry, Chase Bird and I have been adjusting to Chase’s new freedom to roam the house at will. The boy can leap small buildings, I’m pretty sure. We’ve had to get him down from places that he’s not supposed to be, but usually all we have to say is his name, and he gets down.
He also appears and disappears quickly. Sometimes the only way we find him is to shake the treat bag, which usually brings him running.
On Thursday, I was off work and Larry and I went out to lunch. I went to the car first. When Larry came out, he said he couldn’t find Chase but figured he was under one of the chairs in the living room, where he likes to sleep.
When we got home, we heard a faint meow. Poor Chase Bird had gotten shut into the coat closet when Larry reached in to get his jacket. We apologized profusely.
|Chase Bird doesn't have e time for photos. He's too busy.|
I usually go to bed at night before Larry. Nearly every night, Chase comes and sits on the foot of the bed when I lie down. He stays there most of the night, getting up when I get up in the morning. Larry says he’s guarding me. I think it’s very sweet.
Two months from today is Christmas. Where did this year go? I’ve already seen some Christmas decorations in a little shop in town. I’m not quite ready to start thinking about all the decorating, shopping and general stress I seem to create around the holidays.
I’m thinking of creating a holiday season bucket list like Debbie at It’s All About Purple did for autumn. It looks like she’s having a lot of fun working on that list!
