Our Home By The Creek

The last couple of weeks have been full of activity! On September 3rd we attended the beautiful wedding of my brother Jim's daughter, Stephanie. We visited with family and friends we haven't seen in a long time. On the 4th we enjoyed more great food, friends, and family as Stephanie and Mike opened their gifts. Roy and Jim have played golf, metal detected, and ridden their bicycles. I've been taking the dogs for runs and getting Otis out for walks a couple of times a day. He is making great gains. He is enjoying chasing leaves that roll with the breeze, and hopping grasshoppers. Yesterday he got so excited that he ran and jumped up a tree about a foot high! Roy has been testing the job market for temporary work. That's been discouraging, but we'll get the hang of ways to earn extra funds. Roy is working on quiting smoking, and I'm starting to get physically active again after last hurting my back. This time my exercise plan will be gentle walking and bicycle riding. Prin and Sugar tried out a swim in the creek off the rock slab behind the camper. We now have a new activity for hot days!
