Simple Woman's Daybook
FOR TODAY... Monday, Feb. 8th, 2010
Outside my window... bright, but not sunny. A long sleeve thin shirt feels good.
I am thinking... about my cat, Rosalita. We took her to the vet this morning, and her prognosis is not so good. She has been having some trouble breathing for the past few months and has been to the vet once already, but we took her back again today because her problems came back. They had previously thought she had asthma and treated her for that, but, this time, the vet said "....because her breathing is not as strained as last time, we were able to hear better and it is most likely a heart murmur." Then she went on to say that with the severity she has right now, most cats have a life expectancy of 3-5 years. Rosalita is already 2. Soooooo.......as soon as we save up a chunk o' change, we'll be doing an Xray to see where we're at and what her treatment will be....but as it stands now, we're just trying to make whatever time she has left as comfortable as we can. Meh. Sucks.
I am thankful for... all of my animals. They may not live forever, but giving and receiving their love is something worthwhile.
I am wearing... jeans, a teal peasant top, and socks
I am remembering... that I finally bought some spray paint a couple days ago! I got me some projects to do!
I am going... to the grocery store, I think. That's probably it.
I am currently reading... a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. It's old. Old enough that the picture I'm sharing at the bottom of the entry was an every day thing that all housewives had...
I am hoping... that Rosalita does not suffer much. It breaks my heart to see her struggling. She is such a sweet personable cat. She loves everybody.
On my mind... I should get up and eat something, but I am just not hungry. Being in some degree of discomfort every day has really diminished my appetite. I still have to eat, though, because you're not supposed to take Motrin on an empty stomach (and I'm not a big milk drinker).
Noticing that...I have been really tired lately. I need to take my vitamins.
Pondering these words... Matthew 7:1, "Judge not that ye be not judged. and that's all I'm going to say about that.
From the kitchen... Once I get past the fact that I need to load the dishwasher.....I have no idea what is going on in there. Gotta go shopping for something for dinner....
Around the house... I need to steam clean the carpets....and the rabbit's pen needs to be cleaned....
One of my favorite things... is Tom Selleck's voice. As I was flipping channels the other day, I came across a documentary that he was narrarating. I would like for him, Mike Rowe, and Sean Connery to read me bedtime stories. (Not all at the same time, of course.)
A picture I'm sharing...
I must have this. It's a cake comb or cake breaker used back in the day for more delicate cakes like Angel Food since the tines would 'cut' the cake, but not smoosh it.
...........and that's my Daybook for today. More Daybookers at ~The Simple Woman's Daybook~! Go have a look....or do a Daybook entry yourself! Everybody loves to read 'em, so why not do one?!
