I don’t even know where to start, so fasten your seatbelt and hang on.
Firstly, I’ve given another update on the fur-girls’ blog. The short version is Gg is doing well, had her drain removed and the new vet is awesome. Stitches come out soon, and we MIGHT be able to ditch the cone of shame then, which would make my little “I’m healed already!” girl very happy.
Then, my personal trainer – Sissy – demanded a run yesterday. I was trying out my other new shoes – the New Balances – and I can say that while the sole is a little firm for my tastes, it performed admirably on wet pavement, over a mucky gravel road and in a brief pounding on the concrete section of the road. No blisters, and I do have to say I think the NB lacing system suits me best of all the brands I’ve worn. Maybe in time, the sole will feel more flexible.
While that’s all good, I do have two more pieces of goodness to share. First, the always thinking of others Amy sent my Christmas present, since we can’t seem to get together. Why yes, I do feel quite guilty that I can’t get her baby’s present mailed, much less Christmas goodies a month later. Gah!
Isn’t it lovely? I’d love suggestions. It’s just shy of 400 yds., and if you’re curious about the details, follow the link above to Amy’s post about the handspun. Thanks so very much Amy, for the beautiful handspun and for your friendship.
Last but hardly least is my tee from Pack Mom. I entered a contest last month, and I was one of the lucky winners! It’s a really pretty, dark red tee. Why yes, a certain DIVA dog has been feeling left out over the past week and does keep inserting herself into things. I figured it was somehow fitting here… You know it says “…Pack…” even if her head does cover the P and the A, right?
The well-timed package arrived on Friday, while I was still reeling from a very late night with Gg and the emergency surgery. It was wrapped in a similar red, tied with a turquoise ribbon. I just love that color combination, don’t you?
Thanks ladies, and thanks to all of you who have checked in on the wee one, offered advice, etc. It’s all meant so very much, and I hope that we’ve turned the corner and Gg is on the mend.
Have you gotten any goodies in the mail lately?
