OMLORD... we completely tore up the gasrden today. I ripped up everything.. he tilled it all under... he is trying to do me in!
I have to put everythin into my garden shed this week.. but I Can do that at my own pace. He kept the whip crackin today!
It will be a MOTRIN night!!!!
Poor Deb!! What's he thinkin'?
At least you had the shed, OMG otherwise!!
Take a good soak in lavendar oil, pour on the arnica.
At least it saves you from having to doing it!
I took motrin last night.. and went to COMALAND. Today... I am taking it easier. Hubby went to work! REPRIEVE!!!
It was a sinus infection that just about got me, I felt like I was dieing,,,especially when I would wake up in the middle of the night choking on a bloody nose!,,,But after getting some antibiotics and going to the hot spring yesterday to celebrate my birthday a day late, I feel pretty good again!:D Although I did strain myself doing to much swimming and was exhausted I feel energetic as could be expected once again after recharging by cooking batches of Jerusalem Artichokes,,,which nobody else wants to try,,,how convenient for me, so I can eat them all!:P
I am so sorry you have been so sick! PLEASE take good care of yourself!!
Yes... you can have my share of the artichokes!!!
What's the Almanac's prediction for your winter?
ZHAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY my friend!!
Thanks Deb, it was a really happy birthday!
I have been taking echinacea, oregano oil, and garlic,,,as well as getting plenty of rest (most of the time).
It looks as if we'll have a mild snowy winter, as that is the both the forecast and the way it is being so far!:)
How are all the fur and feathered kids? Everybody ready for winter?
PLEASE take care my friend.
And I wish you many more!! Take care of that health, and you're lucky to have the hot springs.
Happy happy joy joy :)
They are doing great for the most part, but one cat (Patches) has had a wound that has been slow to heal, and I have found several dead birds with no sign of wounds on them,,,so I'm thinking something other than the cats got them.:(
ohhhh wow!!! Keep an eye on Patches. Make sure he/ she stays safe!
Thanks Deb, I have been keeping an eye on her already,,,but part of the problem is she hides from me to try to keep me from giving her her medicine. The other day I was really worried about her, she had been really weak, then disappeared for an entire day, but when she came back she was much better!:)
Can you put her meds in her food and mix it up feed her away from the others to make sure she eats it all.
I hope she gets better soon!
I'm not sure, the medicine is in an eye dropper, and if I put canned food out for her I would have a hard time either getting her to eat the right portion(if I put some for all the cats), or the other cats would try to fight her for it. And if I brought her in the house to be separate from them Pugsley would be after it, he always knows when caned pet food is being opened and is hard to keep away from it,,,though I have been having some luck training him to stay back when I give Pim his arthritis meds in caned food. Wish me luck! ( prayer would be appreciated too)
Get the meds ready in the dropper, put it on the kitchen table or living room couch table. Prop the dropper so it's level, don't want the surface to draw out the meds.
Talk to her the whole time in a nice calm voice. Take a towel, hold it behind your back, and gently hold Patches down over the shoulders, next to the meds spot. Then wrap the towel around her from the front and around to the back -- pinning her front legs in. A Kitty Burrito!!
With her between your knees on the floor, cup the side of her head with one hand, thumb in back of her head.
Now with the other hand, you can work the dropper into the side of her mouth between the teeth, and squeeze.
Good Luck, hope she's feeling better!!
Thanks, I will have to remember that to use on some of my pets, Patches doesn't need all that done to her,,,the problem with her is that she knows when I'm going to give her medicine and disappears!:( That would certainly help with some of the other cats I have, they will fight me if I try to give them medicine when they are sick!
My Oskar hides in places I just don't think of! He gets behind the entertainment center with drawers that don't go all the way back -- nice cubbyhole!!
Boy is he surprised when I take the drawer out.
Sometimes I put him in the bedroom and close the door before I get the meds ready.
Gotta love these wily little creatures!!
Even the ones that understand we are just trying to help them will hide,,,unless they are too sick too!
MIne see the syringe for meds and they ALL run.DOesn't matter who it's for.. they ALL take off!
I have a new stray....oy.
Seems like it never ends!
I can just see them all hauling a**!!
Good luck with the stray. I have neighbors with too many (9) and they keep putting at least 3 little ones (10 mos.) out -- they're so thin I don't think they're inside ever anymore. In all good conscience, I think I need to call someone to pick them up. One runs away but then meows so pitifully, it breaks my heart. I don't feel guilty as this person already took in 5 strays last year, but obviously doesn't spay/neuter. I'm tempted, but my 3 that I adopted from the pound keep me busy.
Aarrggh, some people ....
