Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of dark roast, a cuppa tea or some hot cocoa. It is cool (45 F/7 C) and wet out there. It is foggy and, when I was down at one of the landings, I could see raindrops hitting the water as if raining hard, though I didn’t feel it. Anyway, with the cool wet, it feels pretty miserable, so you’ll need that hot beverage. Oh, where are we? If the photo at the top and my description of the day didn’t give it away, we are on Cape Cod.
I drove down with Alexander on Tuesday evening. Alexander is right now in my lap, were he has been most of the week. He has slept beside me each night as well. I am not sure if he is a little out of sorts and so needs his Daddy or he is taking advantage of being only mammal when he usually has to compete with Fiyero, Idina (dogs), Grace Kelly, Tiberius (cats) and Figaro (bird (ok, not a mammal, but…)).
I usually also take Tiberius when I go down by myself, but he had surgery yesterday. He is sick again (at least the third time in his 9 months of life) and the vets said it is caused by a polyp. Unfortunately, the vet was not able to completely remove the polyp and so he will need to see a specialist. Poor little guy! I’m sorry I wasn’t there with him, but in some ways it was easier to restrict diet and such with Alexander out of the house.
I came down (leaving the kitten behind!!!) for a few reasons. First, it has been a month! I like to be down at least twice a month, and also usually spend an entire week in February. This year it has been once a month and no more than 5 days at a time. I also had a delivery scheduled for today. We have been waiting over six months, so I did not want to say “No”! They were here before 8, so that is now complete.
The weather was very warm up in New Hampshire this week (over 70 F/21 C), so in ways I was sorry to miss it – it was much cooler here, and often wet or foggy. I was able to get out for a very long walk in the woods yesterday after work and did a good run that took me on the beach access on Wednesday. I was pretty active this week, but also did a lot more reading than usual.
Oh, quick comment – last week I mentioned an MRI. News back is nothing to worry about (told to me over the phone by a nurse, to give you an idea of how little worry…). I may talk about the experience more later.
Well, despite the damp air I plan on being outside all day. Anyway, I need to get up soon (Alexander will be a little upset, but…). Thanks for stopping in for a coffee and a chat! If you have a coffee share I will try to visit.
