I made it through my third 12-hour day yesterday and today I got to "rest." I did laundry, cleaned the kitchen, and met my friend Jo for lunch. I got home from my lunch date in time to take Sofie for a walk in the orchard. It was a gorgeous afternoon!
Rachel arrived at my house a little after 2 pm and we went out to visit Tim. We found him sitting in a comfy chair. He didn't jump up like usual so I plopped down next to next to him and took a picture.
It's been a good day. My feet are still tired and achy, but ibuprofen takes off the edge. Tomorrow I will deposit my first paycheck and buy myself a pair of TEDs. And, I'm going back to Ladies' Prayer for the first time in eight weeks.
