I ask this the mug of a happy cat?
Eight teeth had to be extracted
and to make things worse, I am having the worst back spasms ever dear husband....had to do the deed...take Abigail in to the vet
day before..nothing after 10pm
WHAT!? was the panicked response from the entire household cat population
nothing????!  but I like to munch and nash at night
too bad....but it worked....Abigail..the shy...showed up promptly at 6:30am
for food
I told my husband we have one shot at grabbing her.....Boo understands English
snitched.......but in the end we got her.....and  that lean over caused me 2 days of bedrest
hello.....the flooring guys are coming soon....too bad there also
Now I am the traitor......I don't think Abbey will ever let me pet her again
Good grief, I can't sit or stand for more than 10 minutes at a time before
my back goes into spasms.....good grief......I hate this
I am a doer......
I know what sent my back out....that two days of 70 degrees
the garden.......clean up...raking
but oh dear it was worth it.....I think I came alive again in that fresh air
that dirt....that bloodroot and bluebells poking through the ground
But for now it's me on the bed with a book
The \Time Traveler's Wife....not enjoying it so far....maybe it's the Tiger Balm getting to my brain
I'll miss my writing group tonight.....
I was working on a story about a hoarder....who slowly becomes the junk
...good stuff......
At least the mind still works

My heart is melting toward Spring
Robin Red Breast sang early this morning outside of my window
 I stirred to the light of sunrise,
 roused to get up and open the just listen.

I went downstairs in my fuzzy slippers and put on a pot of coffee,
opened the patio door to hear the symphony going on
The cats heard it too and stretched and walked into the room
and lined up by the bird watch

Miss Kitty O'Shea is feeling much better. Her nail had grown inward into her paw
and she had to have a visit to the vet last week......something she detests
...there are lesser creatures dogs
But she survived the ordeal just fine and is on the mend....I even caught her walking upstairs! good when you really need them.
 Abbey goes next week for a teeth cleaning,
that should be fun.....not
Little Boo hasn't got a clue that this going to happen to him, too. ..a visit to the vet
for his yearly.....When I took Miss Kitty he freaked at seeing her in the carrier,
wailed like I had never heard before, tail and body fur 2 times its normal funny
He and Abbey hid all day......ha ha he goes next week

I have been going to bed smelling like an old lady lately.....arthritis cream on my arms and legs
not pretty
But we are getting wood floors put in upstairs and the man said everything has to come out of the closets and small things out of the rooms...he'll move the big furniture
yikes! Good thing I have been cleaning out the closets this dreadful winter.
But I'm telling you this is not a job for the weak or frail
.....I am so sore from packing stuff into bins, hauling them into the basement,
....I have too many clothes and shoes
....kept too much of my children's childhood
...too many art supplies and writing books, notebooks, poetry folders
.....too much jewelry and perfume
.....too much

I know I will not be putting it back into my closets or rooms
...Book cases are going to be pared
Writing notebooks gone through
Goodwill will be the recipient of many shoes, belts
purses and clothes that I hoped to get back know how that goes

I will not be hosting  Easter dinner
This I know for sure
