Last week Random Friday was early, this week it will be late. It's Friday night, time to go to bed and I am just starting to think about what to write. I don't think very much will get written tonight but I'll get a few lines going.
Mom has been moved to a rehab facility. Everyone seems very nice but she is having a hard time adjusting to being away from home. She was in the hospital about a week and will be in rehab about two weeks so that is a long time to be away from home. We go in often to help pass the time with her and she has a lot of physical therapy sessions each day. She is healing well but still has all the staples in her knee for now. I'm not sure when they will be taken out. So glad that she hasn't had any problem with infection. It's so hard not having her here at home with us, these things are hard. Thank you again for all your prayers for her!
I did take a few minutes today to go to a Humane Society function. We were being honored with the Home Town Hero's Award and I got in on the last half hour and got some cute pictures. We had some pets there that are looking for a forever home and they are sooooooooo cute! This first dog has special needs and has been living with this man and his wife who are fostering him. We are hoping for a very special family to come along and adopt him.
This little guy has gorgeous eyes.
This is one way to wipe your nose!
Look at that face! This is a Puggle, part pug and part beagle!
They made a beautiful cake for us.
We had a radio station there.
It's Step#hen Kings radio station.
This is our executive director, she is a great gal and does a WONDERFUL job!
We had lots of laughs!
Thank you Uni#cel for such a great time and of course for the nice fat check, it will help out lots of homeless pets!
The leaves are falling early this year. The horses, except Nick, are getting fuzzy. I wonder if we are going to have an early winter. Nick will need a sheet on soon and then a blanket for the winter. I keep their big stall windows closed at night now to keep the draft out of the barn. They love keeping their heads out their windows but I don't want them to be cold. The coyotes were yapping in the night. It is rather gruesome as I know they have made a kill with all their howling and yipping and then all is quiet. An owl was hooting a couple nights ago and I took my big flashlight out to try to see him but to no avail. He moved on probably due to the crazy woman flashing all that light into the trees! I was concerned about the twin fawns after hearing the coyotes but saw them this morning with their mom happily munching on clover. Yea! They have lost their spots now and are getting really tall.
Lots to do today as I want to go to the stable early and ride with Ann, go to the Rehab center and spend time with Mom, get supplies in as we are hosting our grand children's youth group tomorrow night for their fall hike and hay ride, BIL's birthday party tonight and all the other things that need to be done around here.
Miss Pea over at Pea's Corner is having a Halloween Give Away. There are lots of things up for grabs so go on over and sign up! She always has such good give aways with lots of loot! She is one of the favorite gals in Bloggsville so be sure and stop by. Oh, BTW I am going to win the Halloween socks so don't get your hopes up on that one!! heehee!
Please continue to pray for Mom for healing and that she will adjust to being at rehab for the next few weeks. Thanks!
