Nah, it’s me.  Carole.  I am about to take on of the earliest showers ever!  Because I am going to curl up with the rest of the Sunday paper and read.  Possibly with a warm 13 pound bundle in my lap.  That little bruiser stretched out like a log along my side last night…imparting heat as only a furred member of the family can.  I couldn’t move and I was on my back.  I hate lying on my back but I also hated to disturb her as she would hop down.  So…I suffered for a while longer.

She is half way through her antibiotic pills.  She has 14 of them total and has 7 left this evening. I am amazed at the vet tech’s ability to open Katie’s mouth, insert the pill all the way back and that’s IT!

The weather has already changed.  The Dogwoods are starting to lose their leaves.  The grass looks choppier (I call it) and there is a coolness to the house at night.  No need for heat and no need for cool.  Just right.  I am looking forward to Fall as my Summer was filled with Dr appointments and surgery but that is over now.  So perhaps the camera and I will make it out for some Fall leaves and a few landscapes.  Certainly my grandson, but I hesitate to put his photos on the Net.  There are cruel and evil people out there.

My birthday occurs this week and I have three birthday dinners to look forward to!  I love how all my friends have come together for me and how my family has.  Each son and my daughter in law has equally.  I could not be more blessed than I am.  I am thankful with every breath and every prayer.

Hope someone says something so I can stop talking about the cat! xo

Katie Isabella

Little girl still isn’t herself BUT she is not as bad as she has been these two weeks.  It occurred to me since her favorite brother is here for the afternoon and tonight that her downturn and his leaving are about the same time.  Could this have been all about missing him?  They ARE very close.

She has a full blood panel done yesterday when she returned to the Vet.  I haven’t heard anything and like;y will not until the results are returned to the Office.  Then they will call me I assume or certainly I will be calling them.

I am making spaghetti and meat sauce tonight and rolls for supper.  Since my surgery I am having to be careful with salt and I believe I may have over indulged this past week.  As with most folks…until I get used to having even less, it will be difficult.  I draw the line at no salt on eggs and potatoes however.  I won’t put on much, but I sure will have some.

Guess I will hang it up for now and go see if Katie wants to play with her wand toys.  She had a nice bath in the middle of the night rolled up tightly next to me.

See ya..

Hi Mary.  No one else IS reading this but you so I am writing to you.  I had forgotten I was on my WP bloggie when I commented on your bloggie and then I found you had a WP one as well.  All my blogs from Microsoft Live Spaces are on here,  imported by them as a very kind gesture when they closed Live Spaces.

Those of us who were on it so long miss it still along with the dear friends we made there. Sone of us meet on a closed group on Face Book. I don’t blame them, MSN,  for closing Live Spaces that they kindly provided for free, as they were tying to make it more like Twitter– which was new at that time, Too many of the people who used that blogging format which MSN Live Spaces provided for us to create and maintain blogs,  spent too much time sending the developers horrible nasty vindictive emails full of invective and cursing.  The emails were public.  I guess after years of nothing but filthiness and invective they decided who needs it?

Anyway, I’m with you on not wanting to see dead animals whether hunted legally or not.  Nor do I want to see abuse and so on.  So we see the same side of things there.

xxoo I’ll be back TOO!  🙂
