I've been very occupied as of late. Our wonderful daughter recently started High School, and fresh off of vacation, we (well mostly I) decided it was time to redecorate her room and get her ready for the fast-paced world of high school. After much master planning, painting, several trips to IKEA and about a week's worth of assembling furniture, she has a great new space and I had a several trips to the physical therapist for lumbar disease.
I highly recommend Physical Therapy, especially when you reach the point where walking any distance without pain becomes a problem. It wasn't the furniture assembly that did me in, it was my replacing the attic ceiling fan's fan belt. Really not a good idea to shove yourself into a small cramped space while trying to lift and maneuver a heavy motor. Never again. The upside, the attic fan works again, and I've learned a lot about core strength, my lumbar region (there are better bars) and the piriformis muscle (the one I made really angry).
Adding to the construction, furniture assembly and acquisition of anatomical knowledge, and the resultant physical effort involved (they don't call it physical therapy for nothing!), I am getting prepared to take Beloved Beasts to Hounds on the Sound this coming October 9!
Hounds on the Sound is a great day of activity that can be enjoyed by human's and their beasts! It's a dog-walk-a-thon that benefits Pet Rescue and the Humane Society of Westchester, there will be:
"Vendors, refreshments, activities for kids, demonstrations, dog contests, photo booth, music & much, much more! Dogs and cats will be available for adoption. NEW THIS YEAR! Dog Contests: Best Halloween Costume, Best Kisser, Best Tail Wagger & Best Trick. Prizes and ribbons for winners. Fee at the event: $10 for first contest and $5 for each additional contest."
And this year we will be one of those Vendors! So if you are in the area, and want to have a great time, and maybe adopt a new furry family member, stop by. Look for our banner, and come by to say "Hello", we will have free drawings for Beloved Beast Swag, and stickers and treats for our two legged and four legged friends.
