|Hey, a girl's gotta get her thoughts put into words somehow, right?|
|What, you thought dad did all our posts with his hands?|
Dad's recovering about as we expected, though he did seem to overdo it a bit yesterday, only his second full day back to work. Thankfully he's got his own full-time nurse/mom/nutrition coach in mom to steer him and admonish when necessary.
So anyway, dad was up early as usual one recent morning, and mom, who generally sleeps later than dad, shuffled out of the bedroom and plunked herself onto dad's lap the way I like to do (note- this was prior to dad's hernia surgery). The two of them settled into each other silently, mumbling who-knows-what and eventually closing their eyes.
|Yeah, their PJ pants almost match. How cute...|
|Yeah, that's the same plant as in my previous post!|
On mom's behalf I thank you all for your thoughtful birthday wishes and kind words. She and dad had a nice relaxing weekend that, as usual, went way too fast.
I know we've shown you pix of me in boxes several times over the years, but, well, this is my blog, and I'm gonna show you more. So, yeah.
The smaller box with the string through it is dad's attempt at a homemade "toy" for me. Poor guy- he tries. I guess the idea was to pull the string back and forth from both ends so the little ball attached to the middle of it would draw my attention. Like I said, he tries. He ended up putting my mat from
Ellen the Tooth Fairy in the bigger box to make it a little comfier, which you can see in the last picture.
|Resting in Preparation for Some Playtime|
|My idea of playtime. Sometimes dad calls me lazy. Sometimes I call him *******|
|Lordy, that was an intense workout|
As is typically their routine, the happy wanderers went hiking this past weekend. They decided on a moderate four+ mile loop up to the WLOS antenna tower atop Mount Pisgah nearby.
|The tower at the peak- their destination|

|Mom's expression says it all....|
|One of dad's favorite views. And the rock trail is cool, too....|
