Oh, what a beautiful morning...!

The mountains are visible, the air is crystal-clear this morning! I was kinda sick last night--something I ate. And Embers cuddled up while I lay sleeping/not-sleeping for several hours. But like the air, today all's bright and clear-headed, and I'm feeling fine! I hear birds all around outside, and some murmurs from the 'keets to my left. One of the doves flew in to coo-coo-coo for a little while, and the dickie-birds are enjoying the re-filled feeder. Temps dipped into the 40s overnight, but... Sign in to see full entry.

End of the day

It has been such a lovely day, weather-wise! Temps in the mid-70s, roving thunderstorms in the afternoon. Embers is doing so much better, eating well, drinking well, and socializing. A week ago she was mostly hiding out in a dark little corner, out of sight. Now she is back to her attention-demanding ways, and sleeping with me most of the night. Today, finally, I made the calls and took care of the business I've been shying away from for a while. So, they are no longer hanging me over me like... Sign in to see full entry.

Morning and Monday

Sun is coming up with clear light shining on the mountains. It will be hot today, but thunderstorms are a maybe in the afternoon. Overnight was in the 50s. Embers is breathing better after several days of sneezing and stuffy-nose wheezing. She is eating her crumbled kibble, and taking her meds with funny cat faces, but no real resistance. I was afraid there was going to be another trip to the vet today, but she is clear-eyed and the congestion seems better. She is more sociable, and has come... Sign in to see full entry.

Sunday preview

Well, Embers is eating again, just a bit. She has a couple of meds to aid appetite, maybe they are working. It may have also helped that I took the mortar and pestle and reduced some of her lentil-sized kibble to smaller crumbs. Probably both. Anyway, I am glad to see her face down in the food dish from time to time. But now--she is snuffling and sneezing! So, another thing to speak to the vet about tomorrow. I am still pondering that parcel of land... Have spoken with my son-in-law who has... Sign in to see full entry.

Home from TED

Well, that was fun! I should mention, this was a TED X event: a slate of speakers from 10am to 3:30 pm, organized and presented by Metropolitan State University in Denver. They will edit footage of the event they made, and send it to the TED 'mothership' in NY where it will be assessed and at least portions of it, possibly published. There were talks on many topics, all speaking to the theme of the day: Ready to Rise. Not rising up as in revolution, but personally: rising to your own potential,... Sign in to see full entry.

TED talk today!

We are off early today, driving to Denver to our friend's TED talk! Embers is over by the glass door to the back porch, waiting for the sun to break through some light clouds and a filter of smokey haze. We don't have the Golden Hour here, morning or evening. It is more like the Copper Hour. It will be mid-90s today, They say, then sliding down to 70s and rain next Tuesday. Same day as the vote in California, whether to recall Gov Newsome and replace him with a deeply conservative Republican,... Sign in to see full entry.

Sun going down on Thursday...

The morning was cool, and I closed the bedroom door to the deck early, to hold in the coolth. It is 90 outside, but a little lower in there. When the temps outside are lower, the door will open again, and the fan will blow that air into the bedroom, and bring it to a proper sleeping level. I remember miserable nights when I was a kid, with tropical heat and humidity, and lying awake for hours. Today Charlie and I drove out to look at a piece of land, almost 5 acres, with trees and pasture, that... Sign in to see full entry.

Midweek Updates

Well, the doves are back... one, anyway, cooing seductively into the air! Embers is doing better in some respects, kidneys seem to be working again. Today I go to the vet to pick up an appetite stimulant as she is not eating. It's an easy one, an ointment or cream that is to be rubbed into the skin of her ear. Sounds relatively easy, that one! Charlie's party was a great success, though we should probably have started later than 1, maybe 3 or 4. Not many stayed to the Cake Time, so there was a... Sign in to see full entry.

Labor Day Monday

Chilly, sunny morning here--Temps dipped into the 40s overnight! And yet, today it will, They say, get to the 90s. Embers is feeling much better today, I am glad to report. Overnight, she only went on a yowl-prowl once, and several times sought cuddles, with her quiet purrs. Today we'll do the IV fluids again, and attempt a medication that is to rubbed onto her gums. That, she will not much like! Charlie's One Yard Old birthday party went very well, with the Open Stage. There was live music and... Sign in to see full entry.

Embers reclaiming her space

Last night she roamed the house repeatedly, mewing and meowing and outright hollering as she went. A couple of times she cuddled up with me, quietly, but it didn't last. She visited my friend in the guest room downstairs, too. I hope she settles soon. This morning she also cuddled a while, and then went to her customary spot of morning sunlight to bask while the spot was there. We gave her a hydration IV treatment today, and that went smoothly with minimal fuss. It only took about 5 minutes and... Sign in to see full entry.
