I hit my head two weeks ago today... it is a slow go recovering from a concussion, even a mild one. I had no idea it took so long. I am taking the doc's advice and resting, but I am not patient and it is frustrating. Some days are better than others. When I get too tired, or emotional, I have trouble finding words which is such a bizarre thing. Easier to write than to speak at times! Anyway, I will continue to rest and take things a day at a time. I am meditating every day and doing some safe yoga poses (that don't involve balance!) Mostly I miss riding my horse...
But I am spending time with him. He was snuffling in my hair the other day, which he has never done before. I was like, "Do you miss me, or are you looking for a treat in there?!"
And here is the dog with the best ears in the world:
Dodger is actually sleeping like that.
I am not spending my every waking hour in bed, but most days I find I need to lie down for a bit in the afternoon. This is making me crazy. Usually I rack up 12,000 - 20,000 steps on my Fitbit every day... now I'm hovering around 3,000 - 4,000 although I am now making an effort to walk more. Not ready to go back to running yet.
My friends are being really kind. My friend Ronna sent me squash soup!!
It was delicious and I think she grew the squashes she made it from!
I still can't drive, so another friend brought me lunch from The Quirky Carrot and the staff there put a nice note on the bag...
Mushroom panini, yum!
The weather has been like me... up and down! One day it's spring, the next day winter is back.
Dodger was enjoying the warm sun the other day.
And then he enjoyed a nap.
As did Chloe.
Talk to the (Dodger) paw!
Gigi and Dodger helping me relax
Emily is brave with the dogs and doesn't let them stop her from getting what she wants.
Even when Dodger does this!
And then last night there was this...
In the end, she pretended Dodger didn't exist.
And the puppies and cats keep bringing me things...
...a live earthworm! Under my office chair!
And on the door mat...
I did not give them this. It is going to be an interesting summer on the farm.
The puppies are at daycare today. We are doing this once in a while to get them some extra socialization and a change of scenery from the farm. They go to Shannoncourt which is a fantastic facility just ten minutes from here. We are so lucky to have this place near us! Dodger and Chloe just finished the Adult Fundamentals obedience course there, and Gigi is finishing up in Puppy class. The staff there is top-notch.
I am off to rest my brain! Have a good Thursday.
