Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 28th day of October, 2018.

Happy Birthday to my dear friend “L” ….. we love him dearly.

We have been friends for over 35 years.

Wishing him a wonderful day.

 

Yesterday did not turn out near the way that I had planned.

That is always part of the problem with “planning.”

Instead I had company for coffee, a tea order in the morning, spent time with Humphrey the cat who is recovering from two surgeries in less than four days in morning and afternoon,

worked on laundry off and on all day, went for an mid afternoon walk with Alvin and ended up having tea at Teddy’s house with his Mom and stopped at another friend’s house to borrow

a costume for HALLOWEEN (check).

So then I decided today would be the day to get some housework done and also to pull my beautiful Snapdragons.  Still blooming.

I would like to share my story about Humphrey the cat who lives close by.

He had to have surgery as he had crystals or something that blocked him from peeing.

Painful, how horrible.

That was last Friday.

Then over the weekend we wasn’t peeing again so back to the Vet and instead of completing the unblocking surgical procedure the Vet suggested to my friend to have him “made female.”

I did not realize that was a thing.

So they removed his little penis and made it so now he pees like a girl.

So that helped him from having to have the unblocking procedure which by this time he has had twice (once before) and then this passed Friday.

Now this all makes a difference in his bathroom practices meaning the litter box has to change.

He cannot use the regular stuff that he uses but has to use pellets or something.

I have never had a cat.

Anyway yesterday when his Momma had to go out to the Vet to get him some medicine to deter him from licking his wound and after my unexpected date had left, I went over and spent some time

with Humphrey.

He was laying in the spare room in the sunshine upstairs.

So I decided to lay down right beside him.

He is wearing the dreaded CONE OF SILENCE.

I stroked his head and spoke quietly to him.

Humming along the way.

We just hung out.

He loved the company.

At times to get comfortable with his front paws outstretched he folded them and rested his CONE on his paws.

This made it easier for him to rest.

I did not have a watch on and just continued to lay and speak to him.

Stroking him gently and just being.

Once during the time I was there he playing with a shoelace the rest of the time he was content to just lay there in the sunshine.

Which at times was bright and I had to cover my eyes and move a bit.

By the time I decided to get up – it took a bit of doing to get up.

Remember I am not 20 something any longer.

But not 100 either.

Anyway …. he had walked into my friend’s office and I noticed something was running on the floor and he seemed to be interested.

Then I realized it was a MOUSE.

Not a real mouse …. a computer generated one.

My friend left a tablet going on the floor …

I really was startled.

After that I gently picked him up and carried him downstairs.

He did not stay on the sofa and wondered to the patio door looking longingly outside.

He loves being outside but he cannot go out now after just having the surgery.

Humphrey laid down under the chair and continued to look outside.

By this time it was 2:30 p.m.

I decided that I had better go home and see the Alvin.

He would be wondering what happened to me.

So homeward I went …. laundry ……

 

Today means getting some work done.

That is okay.

As my wise friend said …. if you have clean clothes to wear and food in the house that is all you need to worry about.

I have that …..

So I will get done what I can do and enjoy my time with me Alvin.

I am so grateful to have had that time yesterday with Humphrey.

Both Humphrey and Alvin lay with their front paws outstretched and folded.

How cute.

 

Okay, time to get dressed and have breakfast and COFFEE.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Have an awesome day.

 

Oh and guess what the winning $60 million LOTTO MAX ticket was sold in Edmonton.

Was not me but nice to see sold here.

Maybe I know the winners.

Who knows.

 

Happy Sunday.

Time to get out of these PJ’s and get some stuff done.

 

Special Hello to: my siblings …. happy day here and ahead.

Always, Carol & Alvin
