Down Time

I apologize for the lack of recent posts.  I think I've mentioned previously that I have MS and while it doesn't usually affect me much, I am in the midst of a pretty bad flare up at the moment.  Not only has it impacted my mobility, I also have very limited use of my left arm and hand, which (even though I am right-handed) makes a lot of everyday tasks (including typing) kinda difficult.  And since the treatment for it is a fairly heavy dose of steroids, my brain is a bit fuzzy at times too.

Having said that, it is a beautiful Sunday here in the Boston area and although I wish I could take Maisie for a walk, unfortunately my legs just aren't up to it today.  On the plus side, the deck off the dining room is now finished so we can go outside and enjoy the nice weather anyway, albeit in a much more sedentary manner!

Before she could fully relax, Maisie had to first make sure there was no funny business going on down in the backyard.  Security never takes a day off around here...

Once she determined there were no immediate threats, she got pretty comfortable in a sunny spot.

And spent a little time getting better acquainted with her new rope toy.

Suddenly, the morning quiet was interrupted by the sound of church bells.  Maisie was mesmerized!

Once the silence resumed, Maisie frogged it out while deciding her next move.

Perhaps relocating to a shadier spot with better scenery?  Sounds like a plan!

I know we'll be spending a LOT of time on the deck, grilling and just hanging out.  Wish you were here!  :)

p.s.  for more frequent Maisie updates and pics, please "like" our Facebook page if you haven't yet!

Haha, I'm using this blog post as my "the weather is beautiful - go outside" wake-up call. Great pictures of Maisie, too!

Sorry to hear about the MS flare up. It's a good thing you have a Maisie to keep you company- Skye is wretched if she doesn't get a walk. I hope you enjoyed all the sun today!

Ooooh what a nice deck! Maisie looks oh so pretty on the rug. Hope you are feeling better soon.

It was a great day to lay in the sun! We love resting on the back deck to!

I hope you're feeling better soon! That sounds like a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
