Yes, I know. Mom has been Really Bad about updating. And don't even get me started about reading bloggies. She is so far behind in the bloggy world, that she's NEVER going to catch up.
But I guess she has a good excuse. The weather this weekend was Really Nice, so we went on several hikes (but, of course, Mom only brought her phone, so we just have these lame little pictures...):
As you can see, most of the leaves have fallen down, making for great crunchy noises. Except they also seem to cover over rocks and roots on the trail, and Mom tripped on one yesterday, and would have recovered fine, but her feet moving fast through the leaves sort of scared me and I bolted, and well, I guess I don't know my own strength, because the next thing I knew, Mom was on the ground, and kind of muddy, and muttering words that I'm too young to repeat. Note from Fi's Mom: all is fine, and poor Fi was so freaked out by the crunching leaves - she has never liked being chased, and I can only imagine what she thought must have been chasing her as I was trying to regain my balance! But, no harm, no foul!'
I should clarify that I LIKE the sound of crunching leaves. I just don't like the sound of a herd of elephants crunching through the leaves - which is exactly the sound that Mom makes when she trips and tries to recover her balance. Silly bipeds.
I guess Mom and Dad also went bye-sickle-ing this weekend, but really, who cares?
Today, though the weather is pretty nasty, so no hike for me today. Besides, Dad has some doctor's appointment that he has been preparing for all day yesterday with clear liquids, and stuff. I'm Not Even Going To Tell You what is happening to him today because, well, it is Too Frightening to Contemplate. Note from Fi's Mom: I'm not telling either. But it's just a routine exam, and nothing that we (meaning me - Gary's not thrilled in the slightest!) are worried about.
We have some (but not all) of the news on TaiChi. Apparently she has an e. coli infection in her bladder, and will be on antibiotics for a while, but they have pretty much ruled out cancer of any sort. So she gets to eat peanut butter (with the pills hidden inside) for a while longer until she is all better. But, she told me that she is feeling much better, and she's all into the peanut butter thing.
Finally, Mom has been sewing this weekend. She says she's almost done (she hopes to be done tomorrow), and will post a picture of it. She says it is doggie related, but I'll believe it when I see it!
Now Mom says she needs her computer back, so I'd better go. If I get a chance, I'll borrow her computer and start catching up on the bloggies!
