Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Why Trees Bend

It is kind of a damp, cloudy, bleary day around the Acreage today. I went and visited Elaine in the hospital, cleared up the hay shed for hay delivery tomorrow, took Brooklyn for a walk and swim, and could only find this poor little Blue Spruce to photograph. My heart was not in it-...kind of a downer day.

Elaine has now been in the hospital for one week, with minimal improvement. They have ruled out tumours or cancer as a cause, thank God! All other systems seem good. They did do a stomach biopsy just in case of a yeast infection.

They are back to Parkinson's Disease as a cause and suspect that they may have overdosed her on the medicine. Cutting back has allowed her to eat (for the first time in three weeks). This is a BIG improvement, even though it is just a few bites.

There is still no word as to when she might get out, certainly not before she can walk more than a few steps.

Sometimes life can get a little down on the Acreage! I must remind myself to be like the tree, big load and no bending.

Stay safe!
