Still Plugging Along

March 23rd, 2011

We’re still here, but busy.  You can see that Ami is free of arm restraints … well, except when they wear them on their legs.  Fancy shin guards for future hockey players?  There’s never a dull moment…

Actually we are still putting them on her arms at night because she still has stitches in her mouth.  She’s gotten so used to the no-no’s now that it doesn’t even matter, but her hands do go in her mouth if we’re not watching.  Next week marks 6 weeks post surgery and Ami’s “all clear” to return to normal eating, etc.  Already this week she has been enjoying all the textures again of soft, well-cooked, but no longer puréed foods.  This was her palate last week.  ↓

And yesterday.  ↓  We’re getting there…

Mr. Bunny is back.  We’ve enjoyed watching him munching on the lawn a few mornings and evenings.  He obviously evaded the coyotes and owls over the winter.

I just finished the quilting for another one of Virginia’s beautiful quilts.  She’s 89 years old, and her sewing machine hasn’t slowed down yet!

Now that we’re having intermittent good weather along with the rainy weather, we’re starting to work/play outdoors more.  Mud (gravel) pie anyone?  As of today, the raised garden beds are weeded, fertilized, and ready to plant.  (Only peas and spinach at this point, as it’s still below freezing at night.)

We’re also finishing indoor projects (because who wants to be indoors when the weather turns nice!)  So, taxes are done, re-adoption papers are filed (Court date next week!), I’m on my next to last assignment for my online Continuing Ed. class (keeping up my teaching certification), and nearly all of Ami’s 100 Good Wishes Quilt squares are cut out and waiting to be assembled (still waiting on a few more that are supposedly coming from extended family members).  The past couple weeks have been productive (which feels really nice since I took about a month hiatus of everything to focus on my girls while Ami recovered)!
