Sunflowers and Cats

Jasmine Marie, Meredith Ann and Riley Andrew
enjoying my sunflowers.

This week the cats were entertained with a Sunflower
arrangement that arrived at our doorstep.
Gorgeous is not a good enough word
to describe how they are.
The cats, one by one, did the sniff test.
I tried to get a good shot of them doing this.
Jasmine wouldn't allow a close up.
Being the Silly Snowshoe Siamese that she is.
Meredith of course did an up close and personal inspection.
Riley did a walk by and later a chew.
That's his specialty.

I've been busy going to new Dr's this week.
Getting x rays and mri's
on my old cat lady body.
Next week, I go back to see what they say.
The hope is that I can get a couple of things done
that will improve my current nerve pain.
I'm going to a spine specialist who mentioned a few ideas.
So, until I know more, I'll be using my cane
and ice packs and hoping for improvement.

This weekend, we are still working on this old house.
Painting one more room.
Doing a few things in the yard.
Last minute clean up
before my two kids come home
from their Universities next week.

She's very busy chewing on an old dog food can

Sunflowers are very special! You all enjoy them!
I hope you'll feel better! Have a great weekend!

Well, if she has to chew on an old dog food can, you must not feed her enough! It sounds like Jake saying that because you can see all of his bony little ribs, that he must be starving to death. Nothing to do with being a whippet, nothing at all...
Hope they find fixes for your pains!

Beautiful flowers and kitties! I too have pain, and dr. hasn't figured it out, I need stronger pain meds. Guess us old cat ladies just have to grin and bear it. I am hoping my shoulder doesn't bother me so much that I can't saddle my horse. That would be a bummer not being able to ride! Just remember to relax alittle, have alittle wine and get plenty of kitty cuddles.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
