It is a sunny, cold day here in upstate NY. I am thankful for my son, my sister, my brother, my wonderful kitties, my friends and extended family too. My Thelma kitty is in the midst of a health problem, a tumor on her paw, it must be removed. So I'm praying that it is not malignant...but all in all, this is a good day, much to be thankful for....good food, good family, good friends.....when so many in the world are without even the basic necessities of life. Prayers for the world, and prayers of gratitude for what I do have today.

YAYYY!!! I'm not at work, on a Friday in August. Even though I have appointments today for my Sweetpea kitty and me, it is lovely not to be in the workday grind. Little bits of samples of what retirement may be like next year...that's what days off are to me. Maybe I'll work part time, but this 5 days every week, all day plus the commute from Schenectady to Albany and back is beating me down daily. My poor body is begging for relief!

Home with miserable sinus infection, bronchitis and asthma. Glad I went to the dr. yesterday, was headed to pneumonia, now on the right meds. Pushing fluids, drinking herbal teas with honey, not very hungry yet. Very tired, so glad for my 2 kitties, good company.

I am so happy to not be at work, needed a break, even this small one. 2 doctor appointments in one day, but still, not at work! :~) I also have 8/30 and 8/31 off, to make a nice long Labor Day weekend. SWEET! Hope to get to the track at Saratoga at least once this season.

Well - I had surgery on my left sinus last Thursday, 2/16/12. The recovery is agonizingly slow. It is the dreadful drainage that is most annoying. And because I'm such a chicken about medical issues, I resorted to calling my doctor's service twice over the weekend, for reassurance. Both doctors were most kind and understanding, responded to my questions and neither made me feel like an over reacting idiot, thank goodness. I am out of work for a minimum of a week, my post-op checkup is tomorrow afternoon. I find out then if I return to work on Thursday or Friday. I am a big wuss, I know. But I have to vent somewhere, where better than my blog and good old FB?

Well, finally! I could not figure out how to get new posts in to my blog after Google +. I am now the grandmother of one adored kitty, my Louise passed away in 12/11. So, now it's just Thelly and me. I am still a left-wing liberal, old hippie chick, no changes there. I am relaxing at home on this cold January day, playing on the computer and listening to NPR on WAMC, my local public radio station. Nothing very exciting, just comfortable and content.
