Friends and Kitties!
I forgot to upload any pictures to Picasa--of course I have a TON of them on a card--so today I offer you (off my phone) an AWFULly funny shot of Scouty, incinerating me with his laser glare. Check out that hind footie in the air! I interrupted him mid nether-washing. He stakes out the same spot every evening, and gets elebenty kinds of indignant when I decide to get into bed, necessitating him to flee for his life.
And how could I have neglected to transfer my photos, you ask? I was at yoga! I bought a 30-day unlimited pass and my goal is two classes a week, minimum, for the next month. Last Wednesday afternoon I was the only student so I got an hour and fifteen minutes of personal instruction and man, my ass was seriously kicked. It felt great. I needed it.
I'd like to thank you all for the supportive comments on my post last Sunday. Depression sucks. Despite my free-wheeling attitude my pathology usually stems from lack of control--I'm a wee tad OCD--and there's been some of that lately. Scott's sciatica has been causing him serious enough pain (and crankiness, good God) to warrant a trip to Urgent Care, Sweet Pea and her Pinkle earned her a vet visit, and Grayce went to the vet, too--she may have intestinal lymphoma. I'm a little stressed, keeping everybody medicated properly--hopefully I won't try scruffing Scott for a pill by mistake! Not to mention I'm doing the house work that Scott normally does, he simply can't stand for more than a few minutes at a time.
However, I have enjoyed a few things this week. On my Dad's recommendation I read The Rosie Project, which was the sweetest, funniest love story I've read in a while. I've been binge-watching the FX series Justified with my Amazon Prime. Nothing like a good old-fashioned blood feud and gunslinging to take your mind out of the present, and Timothy Olyphant is one HOT dude! Scott and I have been eating fresh kale, lettuce and tomatoes from our garden, and I've cooked tasty meals with plenty of leftovers on my three evenings off. My new vacuum cleaner inhales fur from across the room, practically--I enjoy vacuuming so this really does make me happy. The weather has been wonderful and I've logged a few walks. So there's sweet with the sour...but I sure will be happy when everyone is feeling better, including myself.
Take care of yourselves this week.
