This morning I was deep in sleep FOR ONCE and I heard a knocking at the door. My heart was bounding quickly because I had told myself at 3 am go back to sleep Grace you need the rest. Who in the world would be knocking at my door at this hour. I ran down stairs and to the shop door but there was no one. I opened the door and stepped out in to the frost covered morning and no car, no person - What the heck???
As I stepped back into the house and grumbled. I went upstairs to the kitchen to start my pot of coffee and my breakfast. I admit I was pissed - Really Universe - I just wanted to catch up on my much missed sleep... As the coffee pot gurgled I went up stairs to put on socks and a sweater and there is was again. Knock, Knock, Knock..
I came downstairs and opened the front door - Nothing!! I wondered if I was being punked by a woodpecker - if so, he better fly away. As I pushed the button down on the toaster and added my eggs to the cast iron skillet there came the Knock again. This time I went to the kitchen door and opened it up real quickly and what did I see but my Sweet Sherlock smiling back at me. Yes, he can do stairs - but normally he would be off grazing in the backyard at this time of the morning.
I guess he took me at my word - you see in the middle of Sunday's sunny afternoon I noticed he had blood on his back. When I went out I found he had a cut on his side (don't ask me how) and so I went and got the first aid kit and cleaned it up and place medicine on it. All was well and he went about his afternoon. I checked on him several times and just before the sun sat I went out and repeated the care. He was sitting with Kasha and Watson and did not even get up. I told Kasha to let me know if there was a problem in the night around this injury and I told Sherlock that in the morning we would repeat the care.
I guess I forgot to give him a time for that - his time and mine where not the same today. Who knew that I would actually find the ability to sleep which so often escapses me. So I gave him his morning kisses and wound care treatment as promised. He spoke softly of his night and I explained that I sure could have used another hour to my rest but I was glad he was doing well. Just then I thought this is one of those camera moments. I ran to get the camera and only managed to capture his going down the stairs off to start the rest of his day. Crap! while all this was going on I forgot the eggs on the stove - Burnt and smelling I placed them in a bowl for Kasha and I started over again.
Welcome Monday Morning...... Looks like it is going to be one of those mornings here at the farm.
