Hello! I’ve been on a break of sorts from blogging for a while and am slowly returning. I’ve missed my blog, blogging and, especially my friends here. I hope you’re all doing well. I’m looking forward to visiting your blogs and reading your book reviews and other posts. And, of course, adding some exciting reads to my TBR and wish lists!
Rosie is doing very well. She’s had surgery to remove her left eye. She wasn't at all pleased with the plastic cone collar placed around her neck after the surgery. Basically, Rosie hated it and fought it so much that we removed and doubled the bandages covering her eye so she couldn’t damage the surgery site it from rubbing it with her paw. Other than that, she’s back to playing a lot, eating quite a bit and making friends. Rosie’s staying with a wonderful woman, Anne (and her family) who helps run a local animal welfare organization. Anne’s been helping with Rosie’s medical treatment and eye surgery since I rescued her. Anne saves/rescues many cats and kittens every week and has a lot of experience with the eye infections Rosie had as well as with caring for kitten's post-surgery eye treatment. Anne' also fostering several kittens around Rosie’s age so Rosie has many play-mates who are helping her learn to play nice and not bite so much! When Rosie comes home, we’ll bring her best/favorite playmate with her. I’ve included a photo of Rosie shortly after her surgery. The blue stitches her vet used can be seen where her little eye used to be. She'll look better when the stitches are gone and her fur's grown in. Rosie's getting so big (to me, anyway!).
I’m beginning to feel better, too. The pneumonia is finally clearing up and I’m awake most of the day rather than sleeping through it! I'm not feeling so depressed either, a huge relief as I was really down in the dumps for a while. As I get older I seem to cope worse with getting sick. That's something I've got to change!
I finally felt up to reading last week so, of course, I began reading (too) many books at one time because I added one or two books tot he ones I was already in the middle of! I'm focusing mostly on The World We Found by Thrity Umrigar, The Light between Oceans by ML Stedman, Goodbye for Now by Laurie Frankel and The City and The City by China Miéville, a book I’d hoped to read with Care and Ti and several other bloggers. I was disappointed that I just couldn’t manage to get to it at that time but I’m happy that the casual read along was incentive for me to get a copy of the book and read it because China Miéville is an author I’ve wanted to read for quite a while. I’m not sure when I’ll read some other Miéville books but I will someday!
Today I’ll be enjoying The World We Found which I’m loving so far! What are you reading and, hopefully, enjoying today?
Enjoy your day, Happy Sunday, Happy Reading!
