The construction work continues–the young men who were at our house digging the trenches for the fiber optic cable would make you have faith in the younger generation. They probably weren’t even 30 years old, brothers and such entrepreneurs! They own the mini excavator and lease the vac truck. They arrived before 8am each morning and left after 5pm. And, they didn’t cut any electrical, phone or water lines–that’s a good thing!
We had a couple beautiful days this week and then much welcomed rain. The rain has made a muddy mess of our driveway where the construction crews dug and Emmi has to have her paws washed each time she comes in. It’s a good thing she is tiny–into the mud room sink she goes. As you can tell from my attire, it is not warm–I’m wearing gloves and a hat under that hood. Cute foot wear–right!!
We’ve stayed home all week except for a quick trip to town to pick up a medication refill for Emmi girl. My orthopedic surgeon called to go over the findings of the MRI I had on my hip which saved us a trip to Billings. I have bursitis which is what the surgeon suspected and there really isn’t any treatment for it other than physical therapy which hasn’t helped or injecting it. I have an appointment to have the hip injected under fluoroscopy later in June.
The Cowboy has been busy, really busy! He wants to replace the box on our truck with a flatbed and decided to build the flatbed instead of purchasing one. He’s built many a flatbed so he knows what he is doing but he’s never built one on a truck with a back up camera–we shall see how this goes! Steel for flatbeds is heavy and he comes in the house each evening mighty weary. Today he installed air bags on the truck and changed the oil–he’s a busy man!
I have a quilt on the longarm–imagine that–it’s been a while! Thirty plus years ago Louanne started a cross stitch bedspread, found it while packing for their move this past summer and finished the cross stitching this winter. I’m in the process of quilting the piece.
This is a very short little clip of Emmi playing with a “stick”–something she loves to do.
The above photo was taken by a member of our community, John Novotny. This is the tree covered, beautiful, peaceful cemetery in our community. On this Memorial Day weekend we thank all those who died in service to this country, those who served and are still serving. It’s a sad Memorial Day weekend–the war in Ukraine rages on and the death of those innocent children and teachers in Uvalde, Texas makes my heart break.
