Friday’s Hunt v4.20

17 Nov

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt. I want to thank everyone who joined in last week. I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up. It’s very simple. Anyone can participate. The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

We are working on round four! It’s hard to believe. I did make a slight change. It will still go through the alphabet for the first prompt, but there are two other prompts that will change each week. As always, you can choose to do one or all. If you enjoy the week’s favorite, by all means continue to add that. If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with U, mosaic/collage, and “I ate this.” I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with work off the farm and everything on the farm right now, but I will try to make sure to visit all participants. I have to say, the change to my teaching assignment this year is really killing me. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with T:  Tired.  There are a lot of us around here who are tired.  I’ll just share a napping Leo with you.

Leo

Black and White:  My sister brought me a butternut squash out of her garden since Sky ate most of mine.  I plan on enjoying it this weekend.

Paper:  I’m currently reading a paperback novel.  The pages are made of paper too.

Now it’s your turn!

More Allergy Problems

26 Sep

This time it’s Leo who is suffering with allergies.  I finally had to take him to see the vet because it was so bad.

Leo

They did ask if it was effecting his eating.  Which I replied, “Does it look like he’s not eating?”  They both laughed because he weighed in at 16.7 pounds.  He doesn’t miss a meal.

Luckily, they gave him a shot, and he’s doing better.  I don’t usually say this, but I am ready for a good freeze.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.

Cats!

26 Aug

Rocky and Bob

We had a near cat-astrophe here over the weekend.  All my outside doors are junk and need replaced.  Well, Saturday night, Rocky pushed the back porch door open and got out.  I wasn’t too worried.  I noticed right away and followed him out to pick him up and bring him in.  But he was already in a panic.

Rocky

Bless my Bob cat.  Really.  Bob is a jerk.  He can’t talk without swearing growling.  He will bite or smack you.  Sky knows better than to cross him, and he’s had it out with Rocky a time or two. I was a little surprised to see Bob hurry over to Rocky when I first tried to pick him up.

Bob

After Rocky ran from me, I had to go get a flashlight and put shoes on.  I called to him and searched, and I was getting a bit worried. Then I saw Bob.  I went to where he was coming from, and I found Rocky.  He ran again.  This kept up until I was frustrated and didn’t know what to do.  I don’t know what I was thinking when I let Sky out (okay–I was thinking Sky might sit on him and put Rocky’s head in his mouth and hold him until I could pick him up).

Rocky

It just made Rocky run again and Sky went into full maniac mode.  By the time I got him calmed down and back into the house, I’d lost Rocky again.  Then I saw Bob cat.  He was sitting under the magnolia tree, and Rocky was up just far enough that I had to go get a ladder.  Finally, I got him back in the house.  He’s much happier on the rainbow pillow than he was outside.  Hopefully, he’s done with that nonsense and stays where he belongs.

Snickers

I can tell the cancer is starting to impact Snickers’s quality of life.  He gets little twitches in his eye, and he’s been scratching his chin.  He’s tired.  I will keep giving him an egg and keep spoiling him as long as I can and he is okay.

Leo

Leo just keeps on being Leo.  I think he’s at least fifteen, most likely sixteen.  He just keeps on keeping on.

His eyes are gross from allergies, but it doesn’t seem to bother him.  Otherwise, he’s good.
