Was cool. The wind is raw and the humidity makes it feel colder than it is. It spit snow all day yesterday but not enough to turn the ground white.
We had two family members in the hospital. Our daughter Trica had a bowel obstruction that resolved itself after three days in the hospital. My Dad spent two days in the hospital with a kidney and stomach infection. Both are home now and recovering.
Two windows were washed….my desk is still a big mess with many projects started but none finished.
No new recipes were tried…but I do have an new recipe for Pumpkin Pie that I will try this week.
The Juncos are here and the little Redpolls showed up this week along with a few wayward Goldfinches that have their winter coats on.
We have a huge buck that has been cavorting around nearby with a couple of does…they escaped the mighty hunters.
Poor Chance has a hemorrhoid. Makes me hurt to tend to it. I am probably more bothered than he is. He does not seem like he is in pain. He has had problems before…and the Vet says to keep the area clean and use whatever hemorrhoidal remedy you have on hand. Ears and butt…now I have to keep an eye on both. He also has a little bit of dermatitis one spot on his belly and another on his right hip which we are treating with vitamin E. His right rear leg is weak at times….he looses his footing sometimes, but still makes it up and down the stairs. He has to be lifted into the car and when we let him out of the vehicle…I wrap a strip of an old towel around his belly and I steady him and lift from above and assist his decent from the vehicle. He is very cooperative and knows to wait for me to encircle him with the strip of towel and get a good hold on it before he jumps off the seat. Yes we are eldercare for a dog. I am certain he gets better care than some people.
