I’m in a stable remission these days, so it’s easy to forget the turmoil of the past few years when my health felt anything but stable… the symptoms, diagnosis, medications, surgeries, ostomy bag, infusions… it’s been a roller coaster at times. I’ve had to come to terms with the “chronic” part of Crohn’s, and I still deal with it every time I visit the doctor. But it was interesting to sit in the audience and learn more about it all, which is so different from sitting two feet away from my doctor in a tiny, uncomfortable room to talk about how my body is sabotaging itself. Lots of good information, mostly positive, and plenty of food for thought.
There’s a beautiful bushy-tailed cat that wanders the neighborhood freely. We can’t quite tell if he belongs to someone, but he definitely seems to be surviving just fine on his own. His coat is glossy, he’s friendly, and he doesn’t seem very hungry.
We know this, of course, because we brought him a snack. He seemed mildly interested in the food, but came closer for some polite petting first before eating. I named him Bosco.
Bosco used to show up at our front door just to make Cora and Tali crazy, but he hasn’t done that for a few months. These days we mostly see him hanging out in the parking lot and jumping into the bushes if any kids come near.
Now that we’re preparing to leave this neighborhood for a new one, I guess we’ll have to say goodbye to the neighborhood cat and everything else. But until then, our friend Bosco will be around.
Time for an Instagram shenanigans starring your favorite kitties Cora and Tali! I’ve finally caught up to 2015, and this batch features the snow days in January & February. Quite different from the dog days of summer we’re experiencing right now!
Every so often I catch the cats being besties… and lately, it’s been happening as the sun goes down and they catch the last few rays together on the window ledge.
I’m pretty sure the heater Tali is laying on is the only thing keeping Cora from falling off, ha!
P.S. Sneaky peek… a certain furry someone was mighty pleased that I finished up a quilt over the weekend! I’ll get pics up later this week.
Cora loves it when I go shopping… because then she gets to climb inside the bags and shred the tissue paper until I ruin the fun by cleaning up.
This weekend was an EPIC shopping event… I’ve been on a fabric fast for months in preparation for the Music City MQG shop hop to FIVE different quilt shops in the area. Excited to share my haul and a glimpse of the shops tomorrow!
Until then… here’s precious Cora and her favorite bag from this weekend. (Sorry my foot is in each picture… oops!)
