I am sorry that I have not posted for a while, but my elderly mother fell during the week and my ICU kitty seemed to think that they had to fight for my attentions.
My mom is ok, but will have to have the artificial hip replaced after 30 yrs, she has 2 hips but she broke her leg over 2 yrs ago and every since, it has not worked the same since that time, so its off to the Doc's office Monday early am, and my ICU kitty had a relapse with the constipation issue and have been up all night with her. She finally did her business early this morning, but these are issues that come up and so far, she is doing good and eating again.
I want to thank one of my readers for her recipe for kitty glop, thank you, I am mixing some of this up and will work this into the ICU kitty and see if we can keep this under control until she gets older and can handle potty habits better. What our issue is, is that she was a tiny thing, very malnourished and no mom kitty and moms usually wash kitten's behinds to get them to do their business, but this one didn't have a mom, so she hasn't quite figured out when to go, so we will get this under control and the vet thinks that as she gets a few weeks older, she will figure this out, until then, we have to do our mom kitty part, and I assure you she doesn't like at all, but we need her to get the idea, just time on all of our parts.
I am still here also, no jail or other nasty things. Got plates and things done for the car and got the cop out of my hair. Now he's on my landlord, which is fine, it keeps him out of my hair, I have enough in my hair at this time anyway. We decided not to do anything about this cop, as this one seems to have an issue in general, I talked this over with my dad, who was a cop many years ago in the 50's here in town, and he said to let sleeping dogs lie, as this cop may find issues and harass just to do it, he said, to let something bigger take him, which I'm sure it will the way he is going at this rate. My dad said to keep a low profile, which I do anyway, for God's sake, I garden and putter around in the yard, and unless the drug dealer slips up, I don't think that we will have issues for awhile.
So, hopefully things will calm down, I'm not sure when my mother will have hip surgery, but I will try to get a few posts going, and get back on track. I have also been canning in all the middle of this, it seems to calm me down somewhat, and keeps my mind off of the world in general, and takes me to a simpler time with my grandmother's kitchen and all that we did together. I am also trying to tackle the housework too, it seems everything either grows legs and walks off or it has babies and multiplies into many things, especially the laundry.
It has been chilly here, a couple of weeks ago, on Saturday, I did Farmer's Market, and I just about froze, it seems to be ok when we were all setting up and then all of the sudden, the wind came up and it started raining a very cold rain, and we all just about packed it in. It was all I could do to keep warm, and drink coffee until it poured out of my ears, I finally quit early at 11:30, and was able to pack up and it took all day to warm up and get the chill off me. It was funny, there were quite a few people wandering out and about that morning. I think that it was only 40 degrees that morning after being 80 something on Friday. Go figure.
So, I should go for now, I have beef stew in the crock pot going, and am trying to get some laundry done, before the wheel starts rolling again tomorrow. Anyway, everyone have a great week, and I will try to post back later this week.
Take care all
