the morning was nice with tish, kathy and heidi here. janice popped by just before i had to leave and had a rousing game of "toro" with ellie and a towel...she loved that game!!! she was flying around and spinning and flopped down on her side for a belly rub too. that baby is strong and fast tho, so if anyone is playing with her, make sure it doesn't end up into "tackle" cuz ellie will win.
3 and a half hours at the cast clinic and xray was boring....but i did get to go grocery shopping and my very favorite easter malted robins eggs are out so i got a bag of those, mmmm. my daughter promised not to make one comment about my eating habits, but she lied. she thought she was subtle when she asked "are you forgetting your fruits and vegetables?"...hey! i had 3 bags of apples and 3 bags of carrots in the cart, too bad she knew they were for the barn guys and bunnies.
i put the barn guys to bed, gosh i have really missed that so much. tunie had her treats and played with my cast. ellie tried to ripp off the velcro straps, she liked the noise of the velcro tearing. and she cried just like a little baby pig when i made her go to her bed, i felt kinda mean but it was bedtime. annie stood next to her gate so at least ellie didn't feel all alone.
carl tried a grahamn cracker but he spit right out, i guess he thought it was poison. spritely played the nose and mouth game and her faces were funnier than mine. jenny is marginally better tonight but she sure feels sorry for herself. and winston was actually sweet and polite for a change. gideon was gideon, just full of good common sense and good manners. he is such an utter joy to care for. and swinger as usual was a silly toad but he keeps a respectful eye on my crutches. i would be careful to never scare him with one but i don't mind that he doesn't know that.
as much as i missed them and these moments at night, the very best moment of all was as i crutched thru the darkening night, i looked up and saw my first star and my first quiet sky. it has been much too long.
the only bad thing that happen was jazz ambushed a crutch as i tried to sneak back thru the dog yard. but i got it back when she tried to carry it lengthwise thru an 18 inch open door. she bounced, and that was funny so i didn't mind that she stole it.
