I Like Thursdays: February 11, 2021

 Well I missed last week's post mostly because I was exhausted and sore.  Scout has been ill too and we've had some sleepless nights.  She's on an antibiotic now and has pain medicine for her infected glands.  We still have some rough nights but I think she is on the mend.

The snow continues to fall here in our valley.  We received another 2 inches last night.

I wouldn't be happy with the snow but now with my sprained knee, it freaks me out more.  But here's what I'm grateful for this week:  wonderful neighbors and family who have been helping me out.  Last week I asked my neighbors next door if their son could just dig some of the snow from the backyard for Scout to have a place to do her business.  Then my brother took me and Scout to the vet.  When we finally got back, there was a wonderful path and backyard space cleared out for her.  All three of the family had dug out a wonderful space for her.  They wouldn't accept any payment and have been coming over routinely every time we get more snow.  

The neighbors across the street have been digging out the front and although I pay them to do that, I am so grateful to have their assistance.

Lastly my brother who lives down the street has been doing all kinds of things to help keep me and Scout going.  

I am grateful for the kindness of all these people.  It is awful to be unable to help myself or even use my sewing machine but I know this could be so much worse.

Other things I am grateful for:

A sweet valentine from my friend Pam who always sends the most charming cards!  I also received this heart postcard from my friend Sam!  Such happiness in the mail!

My brother took Scout and I to my Mom's for a visit.  It appears that Mom's pup Kerry is part goat.  The higher the snow mound, the more she loves traveling up it!

Scout and I enjoyed the Puppy Bowl on Sunday.
She preferred the sections of the program that featured the kittens.

We were glad to watch the puppy bowl.  As it turned out, Ruff Vs. Fluff turned out to be a much better game than the actual superbowl 😁

Stay safe and have a great week!

Oh I’m so sorry you fell! It’s the thing I fear most in the winter, DH fell twice several years ago and finally purchased a pair of Yak grips for his outdoor shoes! They help immensely! I’m lucky to have him to shovel. One of these years, these oldsters (76 and 75) are going to have to hire someone!

I'm so sorry to hear you fell and hurt your knee, Michele! That just makes everything so much harder - especially when it won't stop snowing. It's good to hear that you have so many helpers around you. Take care!

I'm sorry you've been feeling unwell. No fun. Hope you and Scout are feeling better. Scout is a cutie with that football! said...

Oh no! I have been lucky no falls. I am fortunate my grandsons and daughter make sure my porch and walkway are cleared and there is huge spot for Bobbin to potty, but her favorite spot is the path they clear to the chicken houses. LOL Hope you get to feeling better quickly.
