Two coyotes on the hilltop.
Normally, Sunday evenings are spent at home. My weekdays start in the early hours of the morning and I like to be home Sunday evenings. But, last Sunday, the night before Spring was to arrive, after we finished dinner I suggested going for an evening stroll. Rob jumped at the chance.

We drove to an area not far from home just as the sun was starting to set. We didn't see many birds, though we heard lots of Red-winged Blackbirds. We did have quite a few wildlife sightings though; 3 coyotes, 6 deer and 1 skunk.

Watching us.
"You looking at me?" 
Nice healthy coat on him.
The deer watched us for a few seconds, and then ran away.
Hope to see a few in the yard again this year.
  It was a very enjoyable walk, and looking back on it now, I'm very glad we went. Because 24 hours later I had a fall on the stairs at home and broke a bone in my right foot.

Getting a temporary plaster cast.
We were at the hospital from 11pm to 3:30am, and then back to the fracture clinic the next morning. I have a boot, crutches, and pain medication.  I'm back at the fracture clinic this week, but it's approximately 6 to 8 weeks healing time. 

My new fancy foot wear.
At first the kitties were terrified of the crutches and the boot, but they are getting use to it now. Rob stayed home with me the first couple days, and we got the house set up so I can survive on the main floor alone while he's at work. 

Checking out the boot.
The kitties take turns keeping me company on the couch.

Goodies dropped off from a friend today.
Spring really arrived with a bang this year! It's going to be a long few weeks, but I am getting around  a little better everyday, and am hoping to return to work in another week if I can. Lots of resting and TV watching in the meantime.
