Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

Life With Lucy And Cyrus

I'm beginning to realize that Life with Lucy and Cyrus is our ordinary life!!

A little over two weeks ago, I sprained my ankle - not just a little sprain, but stay off of it for two days (RICE) then wear a boot and then a brace kind of sprain.  That translates to two weeks of me not walking the turkeys and I missed it.  A lot! (I went yesterday for over 45 minutes and my ankle seems to be okay.)

Hubby and the boys were good to walk them - okay, sometimes the boys walked them a little quicker than they should have and sometimes there were complaints, but they did take up my slack. Aunt even walked them once. They got to run at Dad's once or twice. 

We went there this afternoon and oh, how they love to run there!  I love to see Cyrus bounding out of the tall weeds!  He always has his ears perked tall and somewhat reminds me of a rabbit.  Tonight, Hubby and the boys kept commenting on how Cyrus stunk.  Who knows what he rolled in in the field? The dog wash was already closed, so we tried what we used to do with Flash - put\him in the shower.  He didn't mind too much and it made the necessary difference in order for him to crawl in bed with L. Of course as soon as he was finished, Lucy had to get in on the action (I had already washed her face yesterday since Cyrus peed on her while we were out walking in the park!!!!).  Now we have two clean, better smelling doggies!

In the past two weeks the dogs have also torn up both the dog beds and the cushion to my porch swing (I had even tied it down to try to prevent that!).  My neighbor said she saw them do it and they had a great time!  I'm sure with two preschoolers and her own dog there's not much she could do to discourage the turnkey's fun.  Of course Lucy and Cyrus have destroyed both of Drake's toy ducks and Drake has torn up his dog bed too.

Our other neighbor paid us a visit today because Lucy visited him in his yard (Did I mention our neighbor is an avid gardener?)  Thankfully he is a nice neighbor and he and Hubby found Lucy's hole and that's taken care of.  This dog is tough on fences!!  Thankfully, Cyrus is much too smart to follow her in any jailbreaks.  Obedience school is in the very near future!

Finally L. gets in on a picture with the turkeys.

They kept me company when I couldn't move around because of my ankle.
