Shadow had very good blood work numbers when he was tested on Monday. His oncologist is pleased, as are we.
While he still isn’t in love with going in the carrier and the car, it’s gotten much less stressful for him. He now takes medication an hour before we leave for his appointments and it’s made it much better for him and … for us. Talk to your veterinarian to see if it makes sense for your felines.
He’s starting to look a bit more like himself too, even if I struggle to capture it in a photograph.
This quarter I focused on Deep Work, it was an experiment in writing. With fewer distractions from social media I was able to concentrate on what I find important. Three places I’ve written more are at my other sites, little acorn creations (Tuesdays), PennyWise Consulting (Wednesdays), and pen at work (Fridays). If that’s too much to keep track of, I created a page that summarizes recent blog posts. Are you interested in a newsletter that once a week aggregates all my writing for you in one email? If so, please let me know. Each site has its own monthly newsletter that includes recent posts and some unique content.
I’m also writing for Anzula. Exploring how all their yarns work in crochet. Jill‘s been writing about them from a knitter’s perspective for almost a year, I’m catching up! You can see my thoughts on For Better or Worsted and Milky Way now. Squishy will appear next week and I’m finishing up Meridian. This is a fun project as I’ve not thought about the yarns I choose for crochet in this organized a manner before.
What’s in the works?

There’s a lot more getting scribbled daily in my notebooks.
There are knit and crochet designs in progress for several companies in addition to swatching my way through all of Anzula’s yarns.
Two reasons for kitten photos again this week: 1. Everyone from the tiniest kitten to Shadow upped the cute factor. 2. Passover occurred during the week this year. It’s resulted in fewer hours available to write.

I’ve written “here” in one form or another since 2003. I think this has become a habit I’m not yet ready to stop, even if I’m only writing about what I want to read and write. However, some days the blank page feels overwhelming and I figured now is a great time to ask my readers for some feedback.
I refuse to look out my window today. Almost everything is white. Yes, the sun is finally shining and the sky is blue, but the ground isn’t green like it was last week. It’s white. The storm that blew through here on Tuesday wasn’t as extensive as initially forecast. However, it wasn’t fun either, there were high winds, nine inches of snow, and several hours of sleet. Yuck.
In a desire to remember that some day it will be warmer, the snow will melt, and there will be colour outside, here are two photos I took two weeks ago before winter finally arrived. I tried to capture some daffodils that decided to bloom too, but they just look like bright yellow blobs.
