The “ Wiggle me sew-a –long” is coming on well, all strips pinned, then sewn , waiting to be ironed and joined in their rows. The table is not wide enough and way too short, but I am happy with how it looks. These are only pinned in each row.
I will have to ask for suggestions for the border, as there isn’t blue to go round each edge. Maybe a darker blue to offset the brightness, and show up the other colours. Naturally Boris had to supervise. He needs to have reading lessons, last week went to the vet for his castration. Came home with an A4 page of details, and instructions for his first few nights after surgery.
“Keep him warm and quiet, and inside.” No excitement or exertion , does that mean no running at top speed up the hall, into every room,looking out of every window longingly at the outdoors??? The next day, cat door was opened early and out he went. One more visit in 4 weeks for the final vaccination.
He is turning out to be a very expensive adoptee, as the week before we had an emergency vet visit, he was “FLAT” and looked so poorly. PUO, or fever of unknown origin, 40.1 and climbing, so 2 injections, home with a syringe to drip feed fluids. Not eating, not drinking, not doing anything at all.
Next morning better, so we were very thankful.
Weight now 2.25 kg, so he has come a long way from the tiny 670gm arrival on 6th May.
Wellington is getting closer, apprehension slipping into my mind unasked. City clothes are sorted, haircut done, and all I need to do is fill the suitcase, pack laptop and camera, and make sure the check list is all checked.
My dear blog friend KB in Colorado had a huge scare with her beloved dog R, an emergency vet visit, then by animal ambulance to Colorado State Vet School, where he was treated, for a possible toxin poisoning. This seemed doubtful, as he had not been off-leash outside for a few days. An overnight stay, now home, and daily checks for any on-going symptoms. KB acknowledged the huge support from her blog friends, and all of us in Blogland know so well when we share our joy, sorrow, successes and failures, you are there to send love, prayers, help, support, and caring words.
So my quote reflects on how valued all our friendships are .
Quotation of the day from Marcus Tullius Cicero
“ Friendship improves happiness
and abates misery,
by the doubling of our joy
and the dividing of our grief”
