This morning I just had to snuggle up under the bed covers for 15 more minutes than I usually do. It’s raining outside and a bit cooler. And it’s darker a little longer now.
In the spring and summer I’m raring to go. I jump out of bed and am anxious to get chores done so I can get outside to my patio garden.
It’s so exciting to see what green has emerged from the soil and what buds have formed on plants.
Storing The Blue Fountain For The Winter Months:
I managed to lift the blue outdoor water fountain and put it on a table I’d set against the outside wall of my apartment.
Then I laid it sideways. I plan to cover it with some sort of tarp or something heavy to protect it. Because any rain or water that gets in a crevice is where a potential crack can occur if it freezes.
I had no idea how heavy it was. That had my back and ankle hurting for a good while. But it’s done. One fall chore out of the way.
I miss hearing the fountain when I go outside. But I didn’t want to wait because there might be a surprise freeze at some point.
I’m sure that’s a good bit away, because temps have been in the 80s. But better safe than sorry.
A Scheduled Doctor’s Appointment:
I fasted yesterday morning and went in for my twice a year check up with my doctor. She ordered labs and a bone density test.
I take a good amount of Vitamin D each day after my ankle accident in 2012. Per doctor’s orders.
Then I drove to Dr. Poteet’s office to pick up Charlie’s bronchodilator medication, Theophylline.
The vet’s office is only a few miles from my doctor’s office. And I like to get everything in one area done at once. Otherwise I feel like I’m wasting gas.
Curious Ivy Lou:
Little Miss Ivy has figured out where I’m keeping the Q-tips. It’s in a drawer in the bathroom.
She comes running when she hears me open it because she wants a chance to steal one.
I don’t know what her fascination with Q-tips are. But she’s decided they’re a good toy to play fetch with.
She brings it to me and I throw a Q-tip and she runs and fetches it.
What a silly, silly cat she is.
