Hello, Monday morning!
We are all well at once, touch wood. My back is still giving me some problems, but luckily we humans possess the gift of perspective....last week is still so fresh in my mind that a little pain and yelping is a walk in the woods. I'm so happy to be up and around.
We had a wonderful, homey weekend with lots of house-sorting, cooking, resting time and a family dinner out - I really enjoy watching the kids in a restaurant and it's nice to get dressed up too. I did have an unsettling dream involving a giant rabbit later that night though. Was it the Mexican food?
This week, I am planning a major health kick around this joint. Somehow, we are stuck in a loop of illness and injury. I feel like it's time to take some proactive steps towards immune-system and body-strengthening. Early to bed. Lots of broths and stocks. Blueberries and broccoli. Fish-oil. Vitamin C. Long walks. Yoga.
Wish me luck.
Here is Ivy, hard at work with a magnifying glass trying to extract a tiny tick from Keith's armpit. (Joys of living in the bush.) I am holding the torch. I lost my job as doctor in charge when I spent quite a long time carefully pulling the top off a tiny mole. Good one, four-eyes. Luckily Teddy found a Wiggles band-aid to cover up the damage and Keith is a forgiving sort of a man.
Breakfast, from Ivy's perspective. The colour cards on the pantry have been there for months, waiting for that painting job to rise to the top. What colour do you think?
