Well, OK, maybe not so merrily, but it DOES seem to be spinning. I’ve been too busy to do much of that (spinning) myself lately, which I intend to remedy.
Those of my followers who aren’t avid fans of K9 Nose Work (the dog sport) will be happy to note that I seem to have gotten most of my “practice-at-home” nose work group to migrate over to Facebook, so I won’t need to use my blog to keep them updated any longer. If YOU are one of those peeps and have not found your way to my Facebook practice group, let me know and I’ll help you. 🙂
So, back to the rest of my life, such as it is, in the here and now. Like many of you, I am in “Hunker Down” or “Shelter in Place” mode, depending on where you live. With Jerry and I both in the “at risk” category age-wise and health-wise, we’ve decided being hermits suits us just fine. We are trying to focus on the positives.
We have a couple of wonderful friends willing (so far) to bring us any necessities we may have forgotten to stock up on (they leave the bags on the porch), and thanks to social media, we are staying in touch with pretty much everyone. I’m working on next Christmas’s knitting projects and Jerry is reading Audible books and watching marathon TV (which means I’m mostly living upstairs, since the TV drives me batty!)
The dogs are keeping us both entertained … Rhonda in particular, since at almost two years of age, she does NOT understand “shelter in place” and wants to go do all the FUN things she normally does during the week – play dates, shopping, agility class, nose work practice (away from home, that is), Rally class … Sigh. She is wound up like a ball of over-wound yarn. We are practicing nose work at home and working on her next Trick Dog title.
We still have plenty of snow outside, so please don’t suggest we take the dachshunds for a long walk … they think short walks are just fine, then they want to be picked UP. 😉
More later … for now, everyone stay put (please!), wash hands and stay in touch. We are thinking about all of you and hoping for the best. (((hugs)))
One thought on “And Life Spins Merrily Along …”
I’ve really appreciated your nose work videos. I trained our lab to shed hunt (find shed deer antlers), find hidden toys, and find our children. (She’s the one you want on your team in a game of hide and seek). I think she would really enjoy the nose work you and your dachshunds were demonstrating.
