May snow. Always a surprise, even though it falls every year.
It pelted out of the air during our "sunset hike" yesterday.
Even the "summer" wildflowers that have blossomed early were cloaked in snow.
The snow stopped overnight. This morning, sunshine briefly poured in through our windows before the storm clouds returned. K curled up in a sun puddle, looking contented. She was snuggled in the wonderful bed that some of you gave us back when K was having her "rounds" of traditional chemotherapy. K loves her bed.
I'm glad that we had a great start to the day with both halves of the Duo going for a mountain bike ride with me because things got tougher later in the day.
But, for one shining hour, the three of us romped in the snowy forest and almost forgot about everything else.
And, the Duo raced each other in recalls.
Later in the day, K had a routine vet appointment to check for side effects of her anti-cancer drugs (everything looks good right now). The vet also initiated a very tough discussion of "how the end will occur". My stomach has been hurting ever since that discussion because I don't even want to visualize the scenarios. I need to go spend some time with my sweet girl to find my equilibrium again.
The emotional roller coaster ride continues. But, K is still here and happy so I'm planning to have some fun with her this afternoon. The forest is beckoning...
