Baby Wakes Up, Sort Of

Orange Cat number three.  Baby has the biggest eyes.  You would not always notice that since they seem to be closed about 90% of the time.  I woke him from a nap for this picture, but since my purpose for doing so did not involve giving him food, he promptly resumed where he left off and that was our bonding moment for the day.

Our patient continues to do well, but has gone to her own home for the night, well cared for by someone else for now.  She may be back tomorrow.  She was able to open her mouth wide enough for us to see her missing tonsils – if you ever get a chance to look at that, I suggest you pass.

I’ve spent the day crocheting a hat and watching episodes of the Vicar of Dibley.  There’s a full moon, but I’m not sure that counts as an excuse. Also playing Words With Friends, and Draw Something and reading two books.  This relaxing business keeps one very busy.

Happy Good Friday to everyone, and Happy Easter weekend.

Harry Is Not Amused

When I asked for help in keeping these orange beasts sorted out, my sister told me that Harry is the one who always looks pissed off.  And it’s true, she does.  She is the only female and the only mom and she has the stupidest name, so who can blame her for her ill tempered little face.

Last night I met a delightful little girl for the first time, got a tour of a beautiful new home, and am now able to put a face and a place together.  We are so happy to have her as part of our family and hope this little while can turn into forever.  It’s a process I’m somewhat familiar with and know that these things take a long and agonizing time to resolve.  Fingers crossed – we’re hoping for a happy ending.

This morning I had my hair trimmed because it was starting to look a little ragged around the edges.  And I did promise that I would get myself to a professional when I got the urge to start hacking away at it myself.  This time it was blown dry first and then cut – I must say there are fewer surprises doing it that way.

And today is the day my neice had her tonsils out.  She’s not six, (she’s over twenty six) so of course she’s heard all the horror stories about what happens when adults undergo this procedure.  So far she’s doing very well, dozing on and off, taking her meds, eating freezies and jello and ice.  We all watched the Blue Jays game on tv.  And watched and watched and watched.  All sixteen innings of it, which they finally managed to win over Cleveland.

So baseball season is open before the hockey playoffs begin.  Even the weather is confused.  There was a huge dump of snow in Edmonton this morning, so some of that crappy weather may be coming this way.  W told me the furnace is in and running at last, and his satelite radio has been delivered, so there’s really nothing to keep him home now except perhaps the snow.  That won’t hold him for long when the island is calling his name.

And last but not least, I have to confess that when we left the house this morning I closed my bedroom door to keep the cats out of it.  Several hours later we came home to discover that I had shut Harry inside of it instead of out, which caused her to be even more indignant than normal.  Sorry Harry.  But I know you had a lovely long undisturbed nap on my pillow, so if I’m not sounding as remorseful as you’d like, that would be why. So please stop glaring at me, I’m not falling for it.
