Yesterday I spent all day at the hospital - a creepy injection of radioactive isotopes, followed by a scan where one has to lie motionless for about 45 minutes - and for sure, there is always something that gets itchy when you cannot scratch. At the end of the day I was so happy to be back in the garden with the greenery and cats, and of course all the blooms soon to come (only some daylilies, peonies and Sweet Williams so far). Without this, all the recent troubles would be harder to take: getting up in the morning, I feel like I am 80, and I'm not even 50 yet! Something wrong with the low sacroiliac part of the back (it came on suddenly out of the blue a few weeks ago) - excruciating turning over in bed, and rising is most painful. Damn! It's just not possible to take care of animals and garden without bending over, but I do - with pain, and with the help of Tylenol. Anyway, enough gloomy stuff - here are Timmy and Angel - I do it for them and all the others.
More of life's furry blessings at The Friday Ark and then Carnival of the Cats on Sunday.
