Embers, auditions, etc

Embers is clearly feeling better: I crushed up some of her favored kibble--the only thing she considers food--and when she started investigating her empty dish I poured some in there, and she just started in on it like she had not eaten for four days. In fact, she hadn't eaten since the night before the surgery. There was concern that the kibble would mess with the sutures (the dissolving kind) before the gums have healed enough, and she really will not eat soft food of any kind, so it had to be...

Things are looking up

Embers started purring this morning. but I could not entice her to drink. I've heard that purring actually creates a wavelength that helps healing, so that was very encouraging anyway. Then after some time in her morning sun spot, and some time under the bed, she came out and wanted lap time, purred some more, and then had a couple of little drinks at the water dish. Tonight Charlie is going out to audition for AMADEUS. He doesn't have an eye on any of the principal roles, but there are three... Sign in to see full entry.

Recovery and Renewal

Yesterday Embers had surgery to remove most of her teeth, keeping only the canines which were still healthy. She came home last night and went straight under the bed, only came out to get onto the bed when I turned out the lights. She slept away almost the whole day, some in the sunshine, most on the bed. It is just as well she has no interest in eating since she won't eat soft food, and the kibble could compromise the sutures. She has an anti-inflammatory/pain medication, but as stoic as...

I don't know where I will be sleeping tonight...

I have finally begun the long-intended shifting-about of my bedroom, which will entail moving and trading out things that are now in the living room. It is a problem in choreography. At this point, having moved what I myself can safely lift and shove and pull, it is nigh impossible to walk 3 feet in a straight line anywhere upstairs. Things that have lived in the living/dining area are going to be traded out with things that have been in the bedroom. Among these things is the metal trellis/room... Sign in to see full entry.

Saturday in the Springs in winter

There was a bright, lovely dawn this morning when I stumbled out of bed, too bumble-headed to know where the camera was last put. I can see it now from where I sit. The day should be pleasant, temps up into the 50s F. After all the whinging I have done lately regarding broken sleep, I made it through last night from 9:30 to 4:30, then went back to sleep for another three hours. So, all in all, definitely feeling on the mend from this head-cold. Yesterday, Mary from Faerie Magazine sent me a... Sign in to see full entry.

too much too soon

Yesterday when I dropped Charlie off at work--he has a badge now that identifies him as "Charles Redding Facilities Manager"-- I went into our unit there and started organizing the costuming we took there from the DressUp Box at the Willowstone Market. I shifted and carried and shoved and dragged for two hours. That's it, just two hours. Hardly a full day's labor. But after those two hours, I was just exhausted! I still have this upper respiratory infection going on, though I have been feeling... Sign in to see full entry.

"Many's the slip..."

You ever get so excited about something, so full of your bliss that even though you know you're jumping the gun, you jump anyway? The exchange of emails between me and Mary representing the magazine began with some formatting changes including one offered as optional, my choice. I could have just said, "Whatever you like..." but instead, told her why my original formatting choice had been in fact careully thought out and intentional. I explained my reasoning and sent an amended version of the... Sign in to see full entry.

good news, bad news...

First, the bad: my PC had a fit today and I had to wipe everthing except personal files back to factory settings. So much to now re-install... so many passwords to recover or reset... Now, the good! FAERIE MAGAZINE wants to print one of my Middle-earth poems in their upcoming Tolkien tribute issue! Hey, all you in the East, button up and stay warm! I hear you are going to get socked with winter in the next little while. Sign in to see full entry.

Nice start to the New Year

Woke in time to catch the last of the full moon and then the pretty colors of 2018's first sunrise. https://flic.kr/p/221cbEN Sign in to see full entry.

Another end of year farewell and welcome to changes

It is done: we completed the move out from the Willowstone Market this afternoon, and began the restructuring of the inventory, and in fact, of the whole business. It had stopped being fun out there at the market, my enthusiasm flagged with every piece of clothing I had to pick up from the floor because someone couldn't clean up their own mess. I added up the numbers and realized I was paying rent 13 times a year. This made it necessary to pay rent by an odd schedule where monthly just seems... Sign in to see full entry.
