sunday sketches :: girl at window

It’s been one of those weeks.

I went with my husband on Tuesday to the doctor. We find that as we get older, it’s best to take a second pair of ears whenever we go to Doctors. Anyway, he’s had a cough for a couple weeks now. He coughs mostly at night, so he can’t sleep. I can’t sleep. The dog can’t sleep. It’s been a grumpy house.

They didn’t treat his cough but did send him to the emergency room straight away. Abnormal heart beat…so he was in the hospital for two long, boring days of tests and new medicines.

I’m lucky that the hospital is near our house so I could come home every few hours and let the dog out. But after a while, I didn’t know if I was coming or going!

Anyway, he is home now. Still coughing, unfortunately. More doctor appointments coming.

And just now I walked the dog. Beautiful warm sunny fall day. Then I saw a snake in the street sunning itself. It coiled itself up and I ran as fast as my legs could carry me!

I’m never walking again. Until winter anyway!

Posting this to Sunday Sketches -- hello to Alexandra in England! I missed last week, so I’ll be sure and check in with other Sunday Sketches posts this week! (Note: I don’t have Google Plus so can’t leave comments on those blogs. Unless there is some easy way to do this without upgrading that I don’t know about? Let me know.)
