Neighbour brought the cats a toy to play with today, but they are not getting it… mine. The first thing she said when she saw me put the stuffed Snoop into my collection was, I will get them another, and a woodstock to go with it… … whatever… this one is mine. They now look at it though the glass door, and chase the spotted dogs with squeakers, until the new one comes. Yup, mine.
I have been writing… I know, I said I wouldn’t, but I have a good excuse… you see, there was this pen, and it was looking so neglected… … I had to do something about that… now, it is feeling useful, and just about empty… they really don’t last that long. Maybe I should shed a tear, as I toss it into the recycle bin in a few days. Yes, I figure it has about 2 chapters left in it… really, that isn’t too bad when you think about it. It has been a good pen. In the meantime, I have almost used up all the older pens in the house, only a couple more to go then I graduate into the new ones.
We got Integration formatted, and it is now going viral… … same with Surrounded by the Light. I expect to be able to contact Cora next week with a page count so she can do the back cover. Then I will be able to order in the proof, if that passes, I will order the first shipment in.
I am hoping to get them mailed out in early September. I am not looking forward to putting those packages together though… I can hear Tath and (especially Thena) already… what you doing mom, can we help... sorry mom, the pile fell and well, I didn’t mean to bump it… honestly. (Then the cards moved, the movement caught their eyes and the game was on). Need I say more? I thought not… been there, done that, still picking cards up off the floor. Sighing, rolling my eyes.
I asked the vet why my kittens were so lethargic during the day (Yes, I am aware that they are nocturnal beings), she said that my teenagers are bored, to get them feather toys… as if they don’t have a half dozen of them already, plus tubes to run though, stuffies to play with and make squeak, toy mice to play with, sparklie pompoms, and twenty other things like that. Running to pet store to buy them a ball that holds treats so they can get one while they play with it… didn’t work… they are tired of it already. They do tend to get rambunctious at night though, so maybe I shouldn’t count them out too quickly.
Tomorrow we are starting a weekend experiment with them, which I will let you know more about in next weeks blog… only dry food instead of both… I can hear then already. Don’t tell Tath, but Thena will be getting a small can on the side… the skinny girl needs calories, The vet is worried about her lack of weight… no worries with the walking stomach… Tath is good.
