AM- awake at 6:45am (PST) to partial clouds, 30 (F)degrees, feels like 25. Canoeโ€™s tummy seemed fine, but he was up in the night for some ear problem. He couldnโ€™t stop shaking his head and digging at his right ear๐ŸฅบHusb looked in it with his otoscope but only saw some dried blood on a scrape. So we gave him some extra CBD and told him to leave it alone. He went back to sleep, yay. Seems less problematic this morning๐Ÿฅณ

AM- we made the mistake of giving Canoe some bones from the leg of lamb we had for dinner. He ate them super fast without much chewing. This is not his usual. Consequently, he was barfing them up in the wee hours, waking us both up. Poor babyโ€ฆ.
So, when I woke up for the morning, it was close to 6:30am (PST), with clear skies, 26 (F)degrees feels like 14๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿคฏ

AM- awakened twice in the night by Canoe who *apparently* needed to go outside. However, he prolly would have just gone back to bed. Husb forgets to just pet him and have him go to his bed or come up on ours. It was SO bloody cold in the night, Canoe may not have been warm enough in his own bedโ€ฆ.
This morning it is clear, breezy, 2(F) degrees feels like -21๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿคฏ. Will be spending most of Canoeโ€™s activity time in short outside bursts, today so he and I donโ€™t get frostbite.

AM- awakened at 5:15 by Canoe complaining of being cold. So, up onto the bed he came to snuggle/spoon between us. As much as a 95+ lb dog monster with nail-tipped baseball bats for arms can snuggle๐Ÿซฃ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคฃ. I gave up and got up for the day a little after 5:30am (PST). Outside is raining, 37 (F)degrees feels like 32. Sheesh, the ground is SO saturated, it feels like a mud bogโ€ฆ

I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on The Body Keeps the Score; it has been on my radar.
Well, my provider recommended it way back when all my family members were dying month after month, and I was having physical symptoms in response. I can tell you that every time I pick it up there are more enlightenment and aha moments that assure me that I AM sane, just damaged and need to acknowledge myself and all my body connections to my psyche. He confirms the benefits of yoga on traumatized psyches as well which is huge. Itโ€™s definitely worth reading.
