I heard him sipping - every night I leave a large glass to drink thru the night. Last night I slept so soundly that I didn't even get up once. Full glass, room temp but he's not fussy.

Walked out of the closet to see Buddy enjoying my water! Lately I've chased him off the vanity, never guessing what he was up to.

Anyway, tonight I'll have a lid on it and make sure my tooth brush is in the vanity!

Small Victories Add Up

So it's been just over 2 months since I broke my shoulder and arm.
This weekend I was able to insert and remove pierced earrings - a small but very exciting feat.

Also, once this weekend I was able to pull both socks on, usually can only get the left one on without help.

Got my hair cut again as can't manage it to blow dry or put up in a knot or hair clip - hopefully that is soon - in the meanwhile it's short and being curly, works for me.

Also, the biggest of all, I was able to pick up Buddy if I used my good arm for his weight(considerable:) and kind of held his one rear leg til I got him in my arms.

Small but wondrous feats.

Salmon Cakes

Salmon Cakes

"Salmon Cakes"

Salmon Cakes
Mix 1 pkg Stove Top with 3/4 cup vegetable broth.Add 1/4 Miracle Whip and 2 Tbsp lemon juice & 1 Cup Mozzarella.
Mix 2 cans salmon- drained and bones removed with 1/2 cup green onion.
Now mix both together and refrigerate 20 minutes.
Spray a pan and shape salmon mixture into patties. Fry about 3 min. each side.
They not only taste good, they look good, too. I may use for my next brunch.
Hope you try the recipe and enjoy it. As usual, I doubled the recipe and it turned out fine.
****Usually it is not suggested to double any baking recipes - found out the hard way.

Monday morning and the poor fellow still looked rather exhausted as he approached my desk. "Uh, morning, Ma'am. I met your hygienist on the weekend and she told me she worked here and I wondered - - - "Say no more, my Child".
Apparently in the heat of the moment names weren't exchanged - just occupations???
Using my most submissive posture, I proceeded to collect the hygienist and reunite her(figuratively, I hoped) with lover boy. I found her and the conversation was like this:
Me: "Someone is here to see you".
H: "Who?" icicles already well formed.
Me: "Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't want to intrude so didn't ask".
She hesitated, then - - "I'll be out in a moment".
His drool had already puddled on my desk when I returned.
I sat in expectant silence - tension was thick, the door handle turned, she emerged.
They screamed in unison - hands raised in horror. Each fled.
She to her cold, lily - white sanctum.
He to the warmth of hookers on Main.

Panning for Diamonds

Really wish I had bought my metal detector when I was thinking about it - my diamond ring went missing a couple days ago - set it on the glass lamp table - went back for it and gone! Buddy looked suspiciously guilty to me but he always does. It was his unusual "ack!!" sound that piqued my interest. Ring stuck in throat? I looked at him and wondered if I could "shake" it out of him. Put that idea aside and decided to feed him mega meals to get the process going and therefore the recovery of my ring.

The vet is not going to like your weight, Cat.

The cat blissfully ate his offerings wondering why she was being so generous - but who's to question that?! I watched him eat - imagining my ring on it's journey! Soon we were both bored and I sat down by the glass table to decide how I would approach the recovery.

Picked my hair clip up and there was my ring, caught in the teeth of the comb! Happy, happy. Well, I am - the cat's back on regular rations.

"There she blows" "This, too, shall pass." any others?

If you are faint of heart, go now:)
So, I wonder Who hates me. Since Monday at 7:30am, I have had diarrhea and extreme,even projectile, vomiting.

There's got to be a conspiracy against me by Someone, I think.

Actually, as of 5:30pm tonight, I have been "free and clear" but am holding my breathe. It's been brutal, electrolytes out of whack, so weak I could barely function. Tis under control.

Haven't had a coffee since Sunday (!)and also very limited intake of food - if I never see certain items again it will be too soon. So, that's why I haven't been reading or posting.

It can only get better for me in 2011 - - - I hope.
