I still haven't recovered my strength yet and Don's been wonderful about getting up early and doing my barn chores. In fact, I literally have not set foot outdoors since last Monday morning. Not one foot.
So today I booted up, got on a coat, scarf, and gloves, and stepped five feet outside to get something out of the car.
And Matilda, who hasn't seen me in a week, immediately came over for some snuggles and scratches and attention. You could almost imagine her saying, "Where have you been?"
Nice to be missed.
