Things I like: December 13, 2018

Well it's Thursday and that means we post whatever we have that is positive to share with the world!  Join LeeAnna (our hostess) at Not Afraid of Color for more posts.

It's been an off week since most of what I do these days is rest my back.  I've been lucky that I have such a good husband and a good brother.  My mom, my sister-in-law, and I have all been infirmed lately and the men have been running everywhere and doing everything.  Brad even drove me and helped me do a lecture at a tea party this past week (it was asking a lot of him but he was really good natured about it).  I gave my talk and was able to not cancel the program.  Three cheers for the men!  Thanks guys!

Brad's been doing all of the Scout work as well.  He's working on training her during walks and she appears to listen to him.  Once I'm allowed to go for a walk we'll work together with her to see if we can stop the horrible yanking.  She sure is a pretty girl though and she's adapted to they guys' routines and afternoon romps with Greta:

I like poodle pins!  These are the ones I'll probably wear on Christmas!

Mom gets home from the rehab on Saturday.  I've been babying the flowers she was sent in the hospital and hopefully they will still be nice when she gets home.  It's so nice to have fresh flowers around!

That's all I really have this week.  I'm on stronger steroids and muscle relaxers and am hoping to reduce the swelling soon as I hate being layed up.  What is interesting in your world?

Have a great day!

Hi Michele! I'll bet once Brad gets finished with Scout, she'll walk like a charm. The yanking is just too much for both of you, and you surely do not want your back to go out again once you get past this spell. It's so nice the guys could step up for all of you. Happy Happy day to you. ~smile~ Roseanne

I hope your back is getting a little better, and so glad that you have lots of help! Scout sure is a pretty girl- it would be wonderful to get her to stop yanking. Pretty flowers for your mom! I bet she'll enjoy them at home.

yea! menfolk who take up the slack! And Scout sure is pretty. I just love gray dogs, Milo's new friend has similar coloring. She does tend to spit on him a lot though. He played with a weim puppy who knocked him down, and stood on top of him while he was rolled over. It was kind of good to see someone telling him he wasn't all that!

Hope your back continues to heal and you are in less pain. Nothing beats fresh flowers. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

That photo of Scout - she's so beautiful!!

I hope you feel better soon. Ah... fresh flowers on dreary days - such a bright spot to the day.

Yes, you are lucky to have guys that pitch in like that. I'm doubtful as to what would happen if so many things fell at Tony's feet esp. cooking. He says he knows how to run the microwave but that's just to reheat his tea!
Anyway, hoping your back will be much improved for fun being sore on such a holiday.And I'm hopeful Scout will be maturing and learning in the meantime. said...

Gorgeous flowers how nice of you to be the conservator for them. Keep healing, back pain is the worst. Scout is a very pretty girl. How great to have awesome family
