As if this month has not put me under enough pressure, this week I received an urgent call to follow up after a medical exam. Today, we confirmed there was nothing of concern. Three days of wigging, over. Now for a lie down before I run a quick errand and then mow the grass.

Glad everything worked out! How is the kitty??


I'm finally on the mend I think! Two weeks of this crap was a real downer!

Madeleine and Brenna, thank you.

I worked from home today, got some good stuff done, and had a kit purring in my ear. Not the worst workday!

Gossamer is a very easygoing, playful, funny, and good kid. He's just so NICE. It was possibly "too soon" in some ways, after losing Siddy, to get a new pet, but the stresses of this month haven't done wonders for my judgment. Fortunately, I seem to have been blessed in this little guy. I can see giggling over his soft hide for a LONG time to come. My little velvet-pawed sweety.

The cuddliest, snuggliest kitten in the history of EVER is all warm and soft and adorable and sweet-smelling and lovin' on me today. It's rainy and thundery outside, but I don't believe we are in for dire consequences around here.

A dark, rainy day, a dear baby boy, nowhere I must go, good old movies streaming, and a well-behaved laptop to work on my revisions. I am significantly blessed!

So cute Diane! Now that Padfoot is 2, he is definitely less in the cuddle mood. Breaks my heart but I'm hoping if we get cold weather, he will be willing to curl up in my lap again. So nice you got a lovable kitty-some of my friends have cats that they hardly ever see.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

last night, dinner at friends and then played a game called 'celebrities'. It is a modified form of charades, and we laughed so hard our cheeks hurt all the way home.
