Weekend Roundup

Wizard is getting better. The cough is hanging on like they tend to do, but he’s definitely improving overall. His mom is sick with this stuff too and ended up with a mild bout of pneumonia that landed her in the emergency room. She’s resting at home now, and Wizard’s brother is there helping.

I have to stay healthy. Next weekend is a busy one! One of my almost daughter-in-law’s invited me to go wedding dress shopping on Saturday. I thrilled and really want to go! It’ll be fun with her mom and relatives. Then on Sunday we’re planning to have Youngest Son and his fiance over for his birthday.

And a funny sidenote. Maggie doesn’t get into anything she’s not supposed to. The only thing I’ve ever her seen her do is steal one of my socks from the laundry basket a couple different times, and the second I call her name, she drops it. It’s pretty cute :-) Now while Wizard’s been sick, he’s been using the afghan his mom made him decades ago to sleep in the day. It’s folded up on a chair in our bedroom. Last night while brushing my teeth, I saw a blur in the bathroom mirror. When I went to the bedroom to investigate, Maggie had stolen the afghan off the chair and dragged it across the room, out into the hallway and to the top of the stairs. As soon as I said “Maggie.” She dropped it and shot downstairs to suddenly become Wizard’s best friend. I have no clue what her plan was, LOL! These small signs of spirit make me happy. She’s not doing anything destructive, she’s just feeling playful or mischievous, and that shows she’s more secure in her home these days. And this is the first time she’s taken something of Wizard’s, I suspect it reflects her slowly growing bond with him.

Although Wizard fears she may be secretly trying to move him out of our room :-)

I got some hours in on writing. I’m not saying too much about it because I’m focused on doing the work when I can around my current limitations and not making promises until it’s done.

That was my weekend, how was yours?

    Yay for Wizard’s recovery, even if it’s slow. Yay for Maggie and her antics. She probably wanted something that smelled like him to sleep on. Yay for writing!

    I spent the weekend working on making this book as good as humanly possible. I have nine days, then it’s going out into the world. (Sooner if I get done sooner.) Other than that, I watched a lot of Olympics. And stayed inside because everything here is covered in a thin layer of ice. It should be gone by tomorrow. Yay.

    Awww! Wedding dress shopping! Your sons have such great taste in the ladies they fell in love with! Maggie is too cute but I’m betting she was dragging the afghan down to Wiz to cover him up. ;) If you ask her, that’ll be her story and she’s sticking to it.

    Do what you can when you can. That’s become my new philosophy. Have a great week!

    B.E., Thanks on Wizard, I’m relieved he’s feeling better. Friday I thought for sure we’d end up in Urgent Care over the weekend.

    Maggie probably did want to sleep on Wizard’s afgan. Of course she’d want the one handmade by his mom :-)

    Ice can be treacherous so I hope it’s gone soon. But you sure are making the best of being inside by getting so much work done. 9 days isn’t long at all! You must be getting excited (and anxious!)

    Silver, we’re pretty lucky with out daughter-in-laws, like you are with your son-in-law :-)

    That would have been so cute if Maggie was trying to cover Wiz! Who knows what’s going on in her brain.

    You have a great philosophy, one I’m adopting too. I’m happy to be writing again.

    Hope you had a good weekend and a great week ahead!

    Glad Wizard is doing better. Maggie is a hoot :)! I think she wants to be with Wizard and that’s why she stole his afghan, it has his scent.

    You stay healthy and go dress shopping. You will have so much fun. Take your honey and silver and zinc and everything else so you don’t get the crud.

    Good job on writing.

    Have a wonderful afternoon :)!

    Viki, thanks on all, Wizard is better and I’m crossing my fingers I stay healthy.

    Hope you got everything done you wanted to this weekend and all goes well tomorrow on your cyst removal. Also, I hope your son got home okay and is feeling better.
