Sunday Update – November 3, 2019

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

This was a busy week and now that I think back on it, I'm not really sure what we did.

I'm a little shaken up today because I saved Lulu's life when she choked on a treat this evening. My oldest daughter was playing fetch with her and giving her treats when Lulu inhaled one and started choking. She ran to hide under the couch and I caught her just in time! I flipped her over and did the Heimlich Maneuver on her until the treat came flying out and she yelped.

Oh my god. It was the scariest moment I've had all year since breaking my leg. Poor thing was really scared, and we were crying, but she stayed in my lap, and I held her close until we were all fine. I'm so glad I looked up how to do the Heimlich Maneuver on dogs a few weeks ago. She's such a spazz and always picking things up she shouldn't. I had a feeling it would come in handy.

So, let this be a cautionary tale to other dog owners. Learn the Heimlich Maneuver for dogs. It's worth it.

Other than that, it was a typical week around here. We did have a half day on Thursday with Halloween, and that threw off lots of stuff. I tried to get as much writing done as possible, but finding writing time has been difficult. This coming week will be more of the same with a half day on Tuesday and Thursday and Friday school closing. I will just have to do my best to get by.

Let's get to the photos since they speak better than I can right now.

What else happened this week?

Our outdoor land/hardscaping is all complete. Here's the back door stairs, landing, and the stairs down to the driveway.

I'm really excited about having safe and accessible stairs now! And these garden beds will be planted with veggies in the spring.

Lulu continues to charm us and fill our hearts with love.

The park is looking pretty! I made it out for a few walks this week.

The kids got quite a lot of candy on Halloween!

I got some baking and cooking done! This loaf of bread was tasty and the dutch oven in the oven had some great pasta sauce.

And I've been enjoying my walks in the park!

Have a great week everyone!
