Quiet Days

We spend our days quietly.

I finally caught up with laundry and disinfecting.  Still catching up on sleep.

I made a wonderful meat loaf one night.  Thanks Mary Lou!  It was a hit.

I am only doing the things that I think are most important. If it involves Far Guy or Chance it takes priority.

Yesterday Chance and I fed the birds, one tiny little Nuthatch and I came eye to eye…he was really hungry. Chance was really bored walking back and forth from the feeders to the garage…I think he missed his longer walk.  No one has ever been able to explain to Chance that the mail does not go on Sunday. In his perfect Border Collie world the mail goes every day.

It was –27 F yesterday morning or –32C eh!

Far Guy is feeling just a little bit better, he is still exhausted and coughing. My hope is that he will improve just a little bit everyday.  He is a little stronger than he was two days ago.

  3. Quiet days are a good thing, especially when you've both been sick, and recovery is needed.

  5. Keeping Far Guy and you in my prayers. Glad he is showing some improvement. Sounds like you are taking care of yourself and catching up a bit on all that goes by the wayside when someone is sick. The temperatures in Park Rapids make me shiver. We will have more cold but we get thawing spells once a week or so.

  7. I am glad you two are on the mend. Having two border collies myself (one who is 15 years old), I totally understand Chance's view about mail delivery. I live in Upstate NY, and it has been cold, but your temps make me cringe! Those kind of temperatures make everything difficult. Keep getting better!!

  10. Good news that your quiet days are at home and not at the hospital, and that Far Guy is better than he was. Time, rest, and love - all are helpful.

  12. Aw well, perhaps a stroll to the mailbox even on Sunday is good for both!:-) If you are feeling up to it of course. Those are wicked temperatures, I hope there is no wind along with that. Glad to hear that there are signs of improvement, no matter how small. Healing thoughts sent your way.

  14. Glad to hear of some improvement....probably that good care he gets from you. The meatloaf sounded good. My cat is very sick ,...feeding with a syringe every 2 hours and pills...liver problems....both of us evidently. I'm bushed! I hope you both get well very soon!

    Glad to hear that Far Guy is a little better. I hope you will both be feeling a little better every single day. Isn't this a cold winter? Gosh, I can't get over all the below zero temps we are having. Hope all your readers well-wishes at least warm your hearts! Get well soon, both of you!

  22. These cold temps stink - seems like an old fashioned winter with all of the cold cold days we have had. We stayed in yesterday, too cold to even go to the neighbors (I think we are getting older) :)

  23. Meat loaf is good comfort food. For me it is meat loaf with mashed potatoes. Both of you take things slow and rest. One day at a time. Keeping you all three in my prayers.

  24. Hope your husband feels much better as the week goes forward. I'm in self-imposed exile at home, since it seems everyone in E.B. is either very sick or recuperating. Chance is quite the friend.

  25. Taking it day by day is best. Glad there is a bit of improvement every day. That adds up.

  26. You poor things! It's an awful bug.
    My client, age 94, has it. I haven't been visiting. (I don't want it, either!) My daughter had it, too.
