The whole pack has been spending as much time as possible with Carmen. She's been having lucid, steady days lately. We've seen less of Carkeys and that is a blessing.
She goes on teetering walks about the backyard. Eats heartily for breakfast and dinner. But mostly? She sleeps on her bed in the den.
She sleeps more soundly when we cover her with several layers of beach towels. And yes, give her one as a pillow for her head. Good thing she isn't spoiled or anything.
Zoe has been spending a lot more time with her. Instead of snoozing in the bar, she's been napping on her ottoman with Carmen.
Even the little kids are sticking close.
Well, admittantly, Zali may be sticking around like a remora. He hovers like a vulture when Carmen eats her meals, waiting to snatch goodies from her plate. That dog is a weasel sometimes.
So we're lazing happily along, relishing the good days. And counting all of our blessings.
Turn that thing off! Can't a girl get some rest around here?
