Tomorrow it's off to Galena...the place of my heart..the place that always calls me..the place I'm sad to leave. Haven't been there since October...can you believe that...no time for some place so important.
I hope the deer and wild turkeys and various other wildlife are still there. Oh and the ferral kitties that my Swedish neighbor feeds...I hope they are well. My neighbor is a good soul...an elderly good soul...she has the kindest heart and way about her. How would those kitties survive without her kind heart?
This will be a fast house check...we have to be back on Sunday night. Besides I have my own wards to look after here.
In case you are wondering...Handsome is sort of making a recovery. It's been rough. I know, because he sleeps in his house all night...something he doesn't do. His foot seems to have gotten better, he can walk on it with a limp. But his poor eye is swollen shut and is oozing. He doesn't seem to be able to eat. I have been giving him warm milk and water and some warm canned cat food..which he tries to eat. Oh how I want to get him in. I swear if he makes it through this..I will trap him and take him in to at least get fixed. I will have one shot at it...if I fail..or spook him...I know He will feel betrayed and may not come back. But this winter has just been so bad for him. ..and me
Anyway, that is why I don't feel bad about coming home so soon. The house will understand.
It will be happy to see us....you don't believe me, do you? Well, I'm telling you..this house knows....it has a presence about it...honest.
Last weekend...Soxfest....that's a White Sox Fan gathering....it was fun. I'm not really that kind of fan..but I knew my guy...Bill Melton ..would be there..so it was fun stalking the place to get a look....and I did! and a signed ball! He's old like me..older...I hope anyway.
and Dreamgirls.....well....no memorable song..and I sat next to a beast of a woman...but it was a fun night out with friends..and I always love the theater
But tomorrow....I go where I am called
then home again on Sunday where I am needed.
and of course...delayed art work again
what's a girl to do? Okay...begin again
Oh...did I tell you a huge red fox ran out of my evergreens in the backyard this morning?
