Who would think that rain could be so exciting? It is. Especially during a 4 year drought with nearby lakes dried up and trees/shrubs brown, dry, and thirsty. I love the sound of rain, one that I don't hear very often. And I keep pausing from my work to take a look and luxuriate in it. If it were warmer, I'd go out and stand in it and sing. (smiling)
Prince Harry (my lovable little cat who's pictured here on my SP page) is doing much better. Have done extensive research into both feline herpes virus and corneal ulcers. Turns out that the virus is highly contagious to other cats and I feel lucky that William has stayed healthy. I don't know if I could handle two sick cats at once. Keeping them apart is impossible as they are so emotionally-attached to each other. Corneal ulcers, even w/o the virus, is very common in Himmies so that's that. It has been a week on the new drops and eyeballs are looking a lot better. Still a way to go and will be vigilant about giving him L-lysine which is said to help stave off these flare-ups. Again, thanks to those of you who offered kind thoughts, prayers, and advice. I was really stressed over trips to vet, bills, his discomfort, the thought of saying goodbye right now if he didn't make it, etc.
Today I saw "Philomena." I don't have celebrity faves except for a few. Judi Dench is one of them and she knocks me out each and every time I see her. Honestly, I teared up a few times as it's an intense topic and based on a true story. Enjoyed it a lot and her performance was her usual stellar one.
My last blog mentioned that I'm going to kick butt in March. Well, I've started March early. I'm going to change up my exercise routines more and really take care of the problematic aspects of my food intake. I've never been overweight before in my life, so these past 6 years have been an eye-opener. Hate these extra lbs and am on a mission to get rid once and for all. Have about 10 to go.
The scale sabotages me. I never owned one prior to 6 years ago, as I never gained any weight despite having the appetite of a linebacker. When I step on it and see a lower number, something in my psyche says, "woohoo, now I can eat more." Don't ask me why that happens, but I've gotta spank my inner child who can sometimes be incorrigible. (smiling)
Gonna go look and listen to the rain again. Big hug to all.
