So the perils of a busy life with a chronic illness is that I:
- Do absolutely nothing extraordinary and blog worthy besides work-dog-horses-volunteering
- Am totally using my creativity to do those things and have nothing left to blog with.
So that’s good and bad. Doing too much is better than doing too little, although my body sometimes objects to this assertion!
BUT! I actually took a day off this weekend and did something fun for myself! Yay!
Amazing hildren’s book author Laura Numeroff (of If You Give A Mouse A Cookie fame) wrote a simply adorable book called Raising A Hero, about a young boy raising a Canine Companions for Independence puppy.
She is doing a series of book signings throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and of course I had to go to one and fangirl a bit! I think Cassius enjoyed her as well. I’ve been connected with her on social media for a bit and she not only remembered me and was excited to meet Cassius in real life but was incredibly gracious with everyone!
On Saturday we had our yearly Northwest Graduate Seminar, lots of useful info and workshops (including a wonderful presentation by a PTSD graduate) – and Cassius and I passed our recertification and got a snazzy new vest and leash!
We did the requisite pose by Snoopy.
It was a really good weekend.
