This was the number on the scale yesterday.
A beautiful sight!
This means Eisley has gained about 1.5 pounds in just short of two weeks! I have started to decrease her hefty calorie portions, & today she didn’t finish her breakfast; this seems to be a good sign we are finding a healthy weight & food portions for her. Other than Monday, we have all had a much less stressful week; Eisley was able to go to work with Dave twice this week, which really helped. Hopefully she will be ok home alone today. I am looking for someone to check in on her during the day a couple times a week as well as hoping to be able to bring her to work with us a couple days. We will find a system that works & keeps everyone happy!

Another beautiful sight made my morning: a small herd of elk! Four, majestic cows wandered through the field [ok, golf course] across the street while we waited for the bus. It certainly made the cold slightly more bearable to see these creatures move so gracefully & powerfully through the morning haze. Elk are my favorite wild animal, & I have really wanted to go hiking through the woods lately in hopes of spotting them; guess I just needed to go to the golf course! 😀
I did not feel like working out at 5:30 this morning, but I pushed through & am glad I did. I also brought my bike in on the bus to run errands after work — it was 6*F this morning — I was not biking all the way from home in 6 degrees. My already frozen face & fingers thank me.

Do you see wild animals often where you live?
