1. Ellie is nearly back to her old self though still a bit tired from yesterday's ordeal.
2. Ellie hugged me twice today by putting her arm around my neck! I have been trying to teach her for a few weeks how to ride "side saddle" on my hip and tell her to put her arm around my neck. She did that twice today with the sweetest smile and a great big nuzzle.
3. Ellie eating by mouth for me and Dave again for the third time in a row.
4. The amazing Fall colors that make the leafy suburban terrain so much the better. This is the most beautiful time of year to find yourself in New England.
