A typical scene: Saoirse looking beautiful, pretending to be innocent. Apollo barking and growling at poor Jayber who’s cowering in the corner/under furniture (I’m probably a bad pet owner for taking a photo before I stepped in to rescue him). Piles of dog hair all about. Furniture stacked up waiting to be refinished or reupholstered for the new house. In short: a mess. Nonetheless, I’m grateful.
I’ve been feeling discouraged easily so I’m determined to make the most of the day, ordinary as it is. It’ll be filled with lots of work around the house and exercising (I’m trying to get in as much of both as I can before surgery), but also spending much needed time with friends we haven’t seen in ages. I don’t think I could ask for more on this beautiful Thursday.
