Our little Mavis girl was spayed on Monday and it was a tough day. I cried leaving her at the vet that morning, and I cried when I took her home. She did great throughout the surgery, but was super scared and shaky when we brought her home.
She’s doing a lot better now, and I think the hardest thing for her is just resting instead of playing all the time like she’s used to. The vet told us to keep her activity level to a minimum and have a cone on her for 14 days. Eek! I bought her an elk antler to chew and play with to keep her busy, but I know I’m going to have to get creative with things for her to do to keep her from running around the house!
We also put a smaller cone on her since she wasn’t able to eat or drink without someone holding the dish for her. It’s a lot to handle with checking her stitches each day, giving her medication, and keeping an eye on her, but we’re glad the surgery is done and over with now!
Doesn’t she look like a little walrus with her elk antler? Also, that’s her “mommmmm, play with me!!” face.
Okay, onto books! I have kind of been in a reading rut lately, and I’m not sure if it’s just because I’ve been busy, or just haven’t found any good books since I finished The Magnolia Story and What Falls from the Sky.
I’m currently reading Present Over Perfect and enjoying it (though I don’t agree with the author’s view on baptism, salvation, and a few other faith-related things). It’s definitely inspiring me to take more time to just “be” instead of do, if that makes sense.
I received a surprise package in the mail from Rach recently, too. She sent baby books for our daughter! I totally cried while reading them (I guess crying is just my thing lately!) and was thanking God for such a sweet friend.
One last thing in the category of books. I found a sermon notes journal on Amazon for a great price and I am loving it!
I’m definitely one to take notes during church sermons and really enjoy going back and reading them throughout the week. I usually just use a plain notebook, but this journal has really upped my note taking game!
I think that’s everything for today. I was looking through my pictures for this post and came across this one below and it totally has me wanting Starbucks.
It was a decaf vanilla latte. Something about their foam, with the smooth espresso and vanilla flavor just gets me. Yum. No other coffee shop makes lattes like Starbucks! They’re always spot-on, every. single. time. but also come with the price tag for that type of quality, haha. Definitely a great treat from time to time 🙂
