the weekend is finally here -- just in time! i had the flu on monday followed by a head cold and then bill fell on the ice and broke two bones in his leg on tuesday morning. luckily, he did not have to have surgery and is in an air cast. the theme song from the jetsons ran thru my head when they brought the cast out. it looks like some oversized space boot. he can't put any weight on it and is on crutches for 6 weeks.
so what does my less then easy week have to do with a bowl of cherries? well, part of it was sweet and cheery and part of it was well, the pits!
being off work sublime
bill in pain the pits
spending extra time with the puppies sweet
bill on crutches and not able to take the puppies out at 3 am the pits
our son clearing all the snow off our driveway awesome
driving bill around (he's NOT a good passenger) the pits
getting to be the caretaker gratifyingly weird
rearranging everything to make way for crutches the pits
overall, things are going really well. i may need an extra large sock to stuff in bill's mouth when i'm driving but he has been very humbled and gracious by this experience.
don't you just love that little white bowl in the photo? you can find more like it in farmer julie's etsy shop or on her blog.
