Sunday Snoozes

It's an absolutely glorious day. Blue sky, shining sun, low humidity, comfortable temperature. At least it looks that way from inside. Come to think of it, I haven't been outside since I returned from surgery on Tuesday. Can that really be? I'm pretty sure. I've spent the week trying to titrate the pain meds somewhere between relief and sleeping. I don't get it exactly right very often. Recovery has been more painful than I expected.

Though I spent most of today napping, this photo is from last Sunday. Five of the six Sugar Babies are crammed together on one level of the Orbitor for a lovely Sunday afternoon snooze. Who's missing? Taffy, of course.

Here she is. A few moments before I was on the other side of that red polartec throw. She was napping with me.

Chip, Taffy, Honey and Snap went back to the shelter on Monday, before my surgery. Candy was still only 24 oz., so I kept her, Sweetie for nourishment, and Sugar for company in case Mom wanted to finish weening. The stress level in my house went down instantaneously. Six big kittens plus Mom was a lot. We have had a pretty peaceful week, and probably have one more to go until Candy is finally big enough.

Glad to see you are back with us. I do hope the pain subsides soon and you begin to move about with comparative ease. Doesn't the weather make a huge difference to the human spirit?

Hope you are feeling much better soon, and that the remaining cats/kittens bring you only joy and laughter to ease the remaining pain.

I wish you a speedy and easy recovery.

Hi GGP, I'm sorry to hear you're in pain. Taffy makes an adorable little nurse. I hope next week is better pain-wise.

Thanks to all for your continued good wishes. The down side to this week is that it's starting out gray and rainy (bleh). The up side is that I have a chamber music concert on Friday night, so I have extra incentive to drag myself downstairs to practice. Yeah, that's an up side. I'm stickin' with that interpretation.
