What a week it's been, I've had a wee bit of stress and the opportunity to manage my stress. Poor Miss Holly is on a strong antibiotic as a preventative measure since her suture site has slight fluid build up. Hopefully the ten days will go quickly as I don't think this medicine is making her that happy. I managed to get a same day vet appointment on Wednesday and then stressed out until I got there. Once Holly was thoroughly examined, I breathed a sigh of relief. I worried that I wasn't diligent enough with keeping Holly inactive (as if). The vet reassured me that I went above and beyond and this happens frequently. Phew.
My husband and I go back and forth on which is better a dog or a cat. I will defend dear sweet Frodo and his crazy idea of becoming friends with his nemesis in all the inefficient ways. A dog is trainable. I can catch a dog way faster than a cat. Giving a dog medicine is so much easier than a cat. I love how he adores me and is eager to please. Going for walks with Frodo has been one of my greatest daily pleasures.
Never fear my friends, I'm getting to the cat benefits! A cat is quiet. Ah, sweet silence! Kitten purrs are irresistible and oh so worth it. A cat is litter trained quickly and can be easily amused by themselves for hours on end. The way she slinks around the house and yes, going and poking her nemesis knowing full well she will be chased is to me a brave and crazy cat. I find that amusing.
Can you see the green sheen in my photos, SPRING is coming regardless of the cold weather. Gorgeous beautiful new life is sprouting right in front of my camera lens. I only had to set aside time with camera in hand to do my walk about to witness the arrival. As I sit here at the kitchen table tying away, the sun is shining after a full week of clouds and rain.
I've got a gym session this morning, boy oh boy am I seeing progress in the way I move and feel. I'm making friends at the gym so I don't feel all alone and awkward like I did when I first started. High school feelings in my mid 50's - totally weird.
I hope you live by my vase and 'life simply'. Go out and get some fresh air, take a walk, take some photos, move your body, eat a salad, call a friend. Oh the opportunities to life simply are abundant. Counting my gratitudes gives me the opportunity to think of all the simple life's pleasures I encounter all for free.
How do you life simply?
