I don’t know if I’m finished in the dining room in my apartment or not. Though I have one painting hung on the wall, I’m debating if that wall still needs something else.
There’s wall decor leaning against the wall just below behind the table that I have to get into a closet or somewhere.
I’ve lived here just over three weeks and I’m itching to get things in order.
Ivy obviously thinks she’s part of the decor and wouldn’t move.
Trader Joe’s Fresh Flowers:
I picked up some cut flowers from Trader Joe’s yesterday while I was picking up yogurt and fruit and a few other things.
They have such fantastic prices for cut flowers. I think these were around $5.
The painting on the wall is from Hobby Lobby. I thought it was soothing with the white and green colors.
The Kitties Are Happy In Their New Home:
Do you think Ivy looks comfy enough here? She seems to have adjusted to this new place quite well.
Gracie loves to explore.
On the other hand, Gracie isn’t the diva that Ivy is. Here she is underneath the dining table.
She tries to hide when I grab the camera. So it’s hard to get a clear and decent photo of her.
Gracie just doesn’t like to have her picture taken. She’s still so timid.
But when it’s just me and her and Ivy here, she’s all over the place. Climbing, sniffing things and checking out the bigger space of the apartment.
Here’s the two of them in play combat eye to eye with their ears back.
Gracie isn’t a little kitten anymore. She’s about 8 months old now.
She’s mama’s little cuddle-bug. She likes to lay on my chest or by my head when I’m in bed.
Ivy will now get in my lap and beg to be petted. On her own terms of course.
I’ve got their cat towers and scratching posts lined up in my bedroom in front of the patio doors.
I haven’t got anything done in there yet to show you. And the other bedroom is a real mess, as well as the closets.
The Heating Pad Suggestion:
Whoever said I might try to sleep on top of a heating blanket, I sincerely thank you! Sometimes it’s the only way I’m able to get much sleep because my hip is now about as painful as my ankle.
I’d never even owned a heating blanket before, but I sure ordered one quick to try this out.
Now I’ll have fresh flowers to enjoy this weekend. Not to mention all the ones now gracing the walls!
You need to buy yourself fresh flowers now and then just because.
Who needs to wait for someone else to buy them for you? I’d much rather buy my own.
I’ve got to go pick up a prescription for Prednisone that the doctor called in for pain. I want to get it before the weekend traffic begins.
When the nurse called this morning, she said: “He will only prescribe Prednisone until post-surgery.”
I said: “I didn’t know I was having surgery.”
So then she backtracked a bit.
He had told me on the phone we would try conservative measures first, so I guess she was just mistaken. I will discuss what measures to take Monday morning.
I imagine this drug is to help lower inflammation in order to decrease pain. Though I really hate to take it, I’m getting a little desperate the past few days.
