I don't want to jinx it (knock on wood) but I just might be starting to feel more functional human the past couple days. Climbing my way out of the Musinex/Puffs hole? We'll see. Fingers crossed. :)
This weekend (despite still being in pajamas) I managed to do laundry (mostly pajamas...or loungers, really), do some cooking, write a few letters, run the dishwasher and the little vacuum. So there is maybe a light at the end of the snot tunnel--LOL!
Been keeping the covey fed in the freezing weather.
They are grateful to pick seed between all rabbit poops.
Yes, the rabbits are becoming more desperate, too, and are here in broad daylight most days.
They even occasionally share food with each other.
Sharing with the birds never bothers them.
But sharing with other jackrabbits is usually an issue. They fight more after the sun has set. Sometimes I hear them hit the patio door so hard I am sure they are going to break right through the glass! I have opened the blinds, pulled the door open and scolded scattering bunny behinds to quit the fighting...several times. If any of the neighbors have heard me they probably think I'm absolutely nuts--LOL!
But--then again--somebody has tossed lettuce and an apple on to my patio...so I am not the only one who feels sorry for the hungry rabbits. Either that or they like to hear me yelling at them in the dark to knock off the fighting--LOL! ;)
Annie has not lost her interest in her reality Cat TV programming, as you can see.
We had a couple of warm days and some days with sunshine (usually an either/or situation) so the snow banks have sunken down some.
The rabbits have dug down to the grass out in that low snow area I always have due to the wind funnel that occurs outside my patio. The partridges will also take advantage of some of that old grass the rabbits have so generously revealed.
Well, I managed to do more of the calligraphy lesson by Thursday.
You can see why I use tracing paper over the sheets I printed off.
That way I can use them over and over again...
...which I really need to do more of...
...to get used to this frilly alphabet--LOL!
The last section of this lesson I'll hopefully get to this week has some practice words and then copying the entire alphabet.
What I should do is look to see if I still have the blank calligraphy practice tablet with the slanted lines on the pages and try to freehand this alphabet style. I know I had a tablet years ago...hummm...I'll have to search for it.
Friday Dagan stopped by after work to dump 40 lb. bird seed and kitty litter bags into my big pantry bins for me. He stayed for a short visit. Always a pleasure for Mom. :) But I completely spaced on doing the life questions blog. Totally forgot. Not used to the new self-imposed schedule yet, I guess--lOL!
I wasn't up to a Gramma Day again, either. :( That's three weeks! (Once it was them being sick and the past two weeks it's been me.) So, Leah was stopping by yesterday with some food and supplements for me...and brought Ian with! They stayed for a visit for quite a while. Gramma got some hugs and conversation--nice!!
I actually have finally gotten back to writing letters this weekend, too! (You know I am not feeling well when I am not even writing letters.) Had a stack of 13 and I think I am down to 8--so you patient pen pals will be finally hearing from me, I promise. :)
Annie seems to be doing okay.
No more vomiting, anyways.
But she has been clingier. Even following me into the bathroom half the time?? Not sure if she's just worried about me or annoyed I'm getting out of my chair so that her heating pad has up and left her--LOL! Funny how much more lovely cats can get in cold weather. ;) If she had her way I would only move to get her food, clean her cat box, brush her, pet her, scratch her neck, and put on her Cat videos--ROFL!
I think maybe it is time to declutter and organize my frig this week. Goodness!
I must be feeling a little better if that even came to my attention as I was sitting here chatting with you, eh? That's a good sign, I guess.
Well, tomorrow the plan is for Leah to pick me up after Liam has his lunch (so maybe he'll take a car nap) and drop me off at the clinic for that random BP check now that I'm on these new BP pills. (I'm not coughing all the time on these--hurray!) Looks like the best day this week since they are talking another winter storm coming through on Wednesday.
Well, there has been some general health progress late in the past week. Fingers crossed this will be an even better week. (Annie would be voting against that, but too bad--LOL!) Meanwhile, I am watching shows, listening to audio books, and writing letters with a happy cat sprawled on the footrest between my legs--LOL! Till next week, my precious people! :)
