Short Post

Well, it has been quite the week here! Jack is having a lot of swelling and pain in both knees and one foot.  he was totally unable to walk Monday and Tuesday so I had to transfer him to an office chair to even get him around the house. A friend traded me a walker for some snowflakes I had made for her so it is making a world of difference for Jack now. He named the walker Snowflake.
Then I burnt my hand on the oven later in the week, and got sick with some horrible virus causing pain and swelling in my abdomen and horrible fatigue.  I finally could go no more by Saturday and just had to rest.  Really still very tired today. Yesterday jack did as much as he could to help out even sitting in the office chair to clean my floors. We have been subsisting mainly on soup as I have not had the energy to cook much else.  Today i have managed to get a ham in the slow cooker.
Before I got sick, I did manage to get my sewing desk home! Mr. Robin across the way helped me to bring it into the garage.  I put it on the hand truck and got it into the den.
Speaking of Mr. Robin, this is his buddy Bosley, a shepherd/pitbull mix. I got him some nylabones for Christmas.

Yesterday afternoon Mr. Robin brought cookies still warm from the oven!
Sylvia Joy has also turned into super kitty.
Last night we were surprised by our local police and a float of folks.  I believe they were distributing things to needy folks.
So that is all I have for now.  Need another rest.  huggles and blessings.

I hope you and Jack are feeling back to normal really soon. Glad you got your sewing table back though! Lovely pup and lovely cookies too! Funny Sylvia!

I hope both of you have better health in the coming year. How cool to name a walker, but in particular, to name it Snowflake!
