That does not mean that I normally sleep late. I am always awake early, but I don’t rush outside to see the sunrise. Even if I did, I wouldn’t quite see it actually happen as my house is surrounded by a lot of tall trees.
This morning I took Daisy for an early walk out in the countryside with 2 other acquaintances, and I saw the sky lighten up until the sun peeked over the horizon. It was kind of magical. Food for the soul.
He is not a happy camper, and neither am I. He hurts, and he cries. He battles to walk, and when he does, it is all wonky – his back half looks like it’s got a life all of its own. I love him to bits, but I’m not sure at this point if it won’t be more humane to put him down. (Which I probably won’t be able to do anyway…)
He was most probably hit by a car on Thursday morning (see previous 2 posts), and although it is not clear from the X-rays, there is a very good chance that he has a broken pelvis. The vet reckons as long as the pelvis doesn’t go out of shape, and I can keep him as quiet as possible (how does one do that with a cat?), there is a good chance that he might heal.
What bothers me is that in the meantime, he cannot be a cat, he can hardly move because he hurts, and nobody knows how long it will take for him to heal, if he heals.
I hate seeing him like this… 😦
Is there anybody out there who went through something similar with a pet? Did the fracture eventually heal, and how long did it take? I would love to think that he’ll soon be his old self, but I wonder, even if he heals, if he’ll ever be the same. Probably not.
So, my SO* left around three this morning – and here I was, all alone on a Sunday. 😦
Sunday is not my favourite day of the week – never had been. Alone on a Sunday, I like even less. But I’m starting to get used to it now. I think I will change it to ‘Myday’. I will from now on, on a Myday, do totally what I want to, even if it means I do absolutely nothing for the whole day!!! And I’m going to do it without feeling guilty about it. (Yaaaa right…) Unless I want to do something, of course…
Today was spent mainly trying to finish a mosaic crochet blanket that I started a few months ago, and other things kept distracting me from it, like beanies for my son and granddaughter, a waistcoat for my mom, and the fact that I’ve run out of yarn, and couldn’t find any for a while because of – you’ve guessed it – Covid!!! I also took Daisy for a longish walk, and I watered part of the garden.
I spent some time catching up with my youngest in Ireland, which was the best part of the day 😀 , and I had clients wanting to look at some plots and houses – on a Sunday, a Sunday afternoon…. Oi! Hopefully something comes out of it.
Now I’m going to seriously sit down and try to finish that blanket, then at least I have something to show and tell for tomorrow’s blogpost!
Enjoy the rest of your day/evening, chat again soon. 🙂
After a week of dark days, wind and rain, today the sun is shining!
You know by now that I love rainy days, but somehow when you wake up and the sun is shining, it does make you want to smile! I will go out in a short while, and do my ‘earthing’, as I haven’t been able to do it for a few days. Maybe that is why I woke up with a blinding headache this morning…
After many years of raising children and working through pain and illness to be there for the kids, as a mother does, I’ve come to realize that it is also very necessary to look after yourself. So I got up, took some pain tablets (not ideal, I know ), and got back into bed for a while. After the headache eased up, I started my day slow and steady.
Now, I feel that I am ready for what this beautiful day has to offer!
So, I went outside, enjoyed some sun on my back and toes in the grass, and took some pictures so you can have a bit of sunshine too, wherever you are! 😀
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, and until next time, take good care of yourself! 🙂
