Geez, it seems like the days fly by like crazy around here! Since last week’s inaugural Barks and Bytes Blog Hop post, we’ve seen temperatures dip down into the low teens around here — and one night it even got down to 9 degrees! — in South Carolina! I guess that’s what we get for being only about 2 hours from Ashville and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Anyway, in last week’s post I made one minor error. I said Sam had undergone chemotherapy to treat the erratic PSA levels. Actually it was radiation therapy. It’s a big difference in the type of “therapy” treatment, but the side effects are not much different. I remember when Mom got her chemo treatments years ago, the effects on her appetite were about the same as the radiation effects on Sam’s appetite. Either way, they aren’t pleasant. So, I’m glad he’s finished with the treatments. And, I’m looking forward to hearing the oncologist say that they had the desired effect on those renegade cancer cells when we go to see him next week. And, last but certainly not least, I want to thank all of you who left “get well” comments. They were very much appreciated. Just confirms for me that our “little” blogging community is a great group of people who care about and support each other.
Post Snow Zoomies Nap
The snow was due to start here at about noon on Tuesday, so I picked Ducky up at daycare around 11:30 a.m. When we got home, it was icy-cold, and the skies were getting grayer and grayer, but that was about it. It looked more like we were going to get freezing rain than snow (like we usually do). So, I took all three dogs out in the yard to run around and chase each other — and the squirrels — to expend some of Ducky’s turbo-charged energy. They had a good time, but I haven’t had a chance to download the pictures from the camera’s memory card to the computer yet. It must have started snowing around 3 p.m. because when I got up from my chair to turn up the heat at 4, I went to the window and saw that there was already about an inch of the white stuff on the grass. Nothing on the street though. Sam came home from work about an hour early, and asked the snow gods to give us a blizzard so he wouldn’t have to go to work on Wednesday. No such luck. It had already stopped snowing by about 8 p.m. But, it was icy enough in the driveway yesterday morning that I decided to keep Ducky home from daycare. We spent about 15 minutes out in the yard about four different times yesterday. Ducky did her zoomies in the snow each time we went out, and took a nap in between. Here she is…..
Fast asleep in one of her crazier positions on the couch. I don’t know how she can be comfortable like that!
Back to School Again AND Updating, Etc, My Blog
Well, I finished reading the material and answering the sample test questions for the first CEP course. Now I need to check my answers and then take the test. I figure I’ll be done with that by middle of next week. Then I’ll take the rest of the week off and start on course #2 the following week.
The blog…well, needless to say I still haven’t done anything with it. One of these days, after I finish the third CEP course, maybe.
Well, that’s it for my “Barks and Bytes” blog hop post for this week. If you haven’t already, why don’t you join us? Or, check out some of the other bloggers’ posts in the linky list.
