Yuri goes a climbin'!!

So I am sitting in my nest using my computer, when I felt something by my feet. I thought it was Bing getting comfortable. He likes to kick around. Then I noticed that the "kicking" was getting higher. Then, it dawned on me, it was Yuri. He was climbing my afghan. Up and up he came, onto my lap. He sat for a while and then decided to move on. Over my lap he went. He moved along, as if I wasn't there. He tumbled slightly onto another folded afghan next to the chair. That seemed nice to him and he sat there for quite some time. After a bit he moved on. What a little explorer. Now I know for sure how he made it up into the window sill last fall. K~

I don't remember opening an egyptian tomb??

I can't believe what is going on here. I feel like I have opened a cursed Egyptian tomb and have been cursed. Normally I don't get surprised by my "luck" but seriously. This morning, a tree fell on our house!! on our house!! Clear day, kind of windy, but really!
In the last few days, our dishwasher's engine burnt up, our stove had a small explosion, I fell down and hurt my already injured neck, and now this morning, a tree falls on our house!!

Box Turtle

Box Turtle
This was inspired by the above piece. It is a Charley Harper image.
I had fun doing the shell. I am not too pleased with the sky and ground.
I would probably do them differently if I were to do it again. K~

I have a "good lookin brain"

Ok this situation is getting stranger and odder. Now I have looked into my brain, and it was good! I am definitely being treated for occipital neuritis. I will be on meds for about 2 more months and then hopefully I will be able to stop.
Today I spent from 9:45 am to 10:50 am at the neurologist and then went to another clinic for a blood draw.
I spent from 11:00 am to 11:35am waiting to get tested for my low vitamin D, low Iron, and if I am still covered from a rabies bite.
Then off to Target to get previsions for the family.
I am a bit tired, but I planted lettuce instead of napped.

My MRI experience

Dave: Open the pod bay doors, HAL.
HAL: I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
Well I had my MRI on Friday. For those of you who have not had one, they are a bit daunting. All I could think about was don't push the panic button, Just breath and the hope that Hal would not shut off my life support on my sleeping chamber. I get results on Tuesday. K~

Here I sit trying to catch up with everything. I have the "trying to dig a hole in dry sand" feeling.
I am planting some plants for spring. so far, I have strawberries, zinnias, tomatoes, marigolds, a pretty vine, and cat grass.

i am hoping support my zoo with lettuce this summer. It will save a bit on the grocery bills.

I am also hoping to plant some other tasty items for the animals too.

5 weeks with the same headache

I am still suffering from the same headache that came on March 2nd. That would be 5 weeks or 36 days. My schedule is all screwed up. I am back to napping during the day due to complete exhaustion from the medication. My head/shoulder ache starts up again around 7pm. Then I sit with it until I take Vicidon. I enjoy a pain free late evening until I got to bed at midnight. Then my day starts all over again. I am really thankful, however, that my other 2 headaches have been at a minimum. I am going to get a mri scan on Friday. Just to check things out. I suspect that it is the occipital neuritis. I am just a bit exhausted from this whole thing. But, I do know, even as I sit here in my frustration, I know that it could be a WHOLE LOT worse! I know that, and somehow, it comforts me. K~
