Last week I had so much to tell you and this week I was late starting this post leaving me to think, “what did we do this week.” The flood recovery efforts continue in Montana–it will be a long, difficult road. We’ve had near perfect spring/summer weather–warm days, clear blue skies and the occasional thunderstorm bringing a little moisture.
Monday and Wednesday we were in Billings–I had two appointments which should have been done on the same day but that didn’t happen.
So, Monday I had my knee injected and on Wednesday I had my hip injected under fluoroscopy by a skilled PA at Billings Clinic. Today I told the Cowboy that I felt like crying happy tears–for the first time in almost two years I don’t have hip pain. It’s a life changer to have pain relief!
We have an older Cadillac SRX and while in Billings on Wednesday we kept hearing and feeling a grinding noise. Once we made it home, the Cowboy ran the car up onto blocks and took it apart finding the problem–we needed a new drive shaft carrier bearing. Who knew Amazon sold such items??? The part was delivered Thursday and installed–success–it’s nice to have a mechanic in the house!
Our lilac tree had more blossoms than usual–the backyard smelled so good!
Saturday was a busy day. It was the annual rodeo weekend Sweet Grass Fest in our small town. Vendors, car show, parade and a picnic in the park with friends Sarge and Sarah. It was a fun filled, great day.
A parade isn’t a parade without horses!
And a certain friend and her class were having their 50th class reunion this weekend–she is on this float and they were having a good time!
Saturday evening we had a fabulous evening at the home of friends Lesley and Ken. Good food, good friends and great conversation.
Lawn mowing, weed whacking, working on the flatbed, grading the driveway–all the other chores that were done this week.
Life is good!
