Thursday Thoughts

Spring is nearly upon us, only 11 days to go to the vernal equinox on March 20th, it can’t come soon enough. We’ve had a few sunny days which has been great for Phil who is using his 2 week holiday to insulate my woman~cave, so much to do to get it up and running, can’t wait for it to be finished so I can move in and start doing mosaics again.

Β We’ve also had our lounge/front room/parlour (whatever you call it) decorated, washed the curtains and had the carpets cleaned so it looks lovely and clean and bright now. Β The sun doesn’t get in that side of the house so I wanted white walls to make the most of the light.

We don’t really have plastic shopping bag lampshades, πŸ™‚ they were for protection from the ceiling paint.

However busy we are, our main thoughts are with Skye, who is still not giving in, but isn’t eating enough and isn’t getting around so much, she mostly curls up in her space and sleeps, but oh she still wants her cuddles and purrs away when she’s snuggled up with me at the table where I read. What we can’t get our heads around is that she’ll be obviously hungry but won’t eat the cat food we put out, we try her on different ones, and when it’s something new she will have a good feed, but give it to her the next time and she won’t have it. Today I gave her some tinned salmon and she yummed it up, but now won’t have it again. It drives us mad. She’s not drinking water (never has!) but she likes cream, so we buy her pots of that! Salmon and cream I ask you!! We keep discussing taking her to the vet but I keep coming across the thought that you do that to ‘put them out of their misery’ but she isn’t miserable when she’s snuggled up and purring or sleeping, so it doesn’t feel right. So hard to know what do do for the best, for her best.

Yesterday I bought some flowers to photograph, shot them this afternoon and used various processing techniques on the photo’s to give a different feel to each one, I love doing flower pics πŸ™‚

    I like these Thursday Thoughts posts.
    The flowers look good, nice still life compositions.
    Sorry to hear that Skye is (sort-of) off her food. As long as she is happy and cuddly, you are undoubtedly doing the right thing.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    Yes, I am also afraid of vets, they just give up, grr. Such beautiful roses, every editing is beautiful and gets along its delicacy ^-^ and I see a nice work to get spaces with more light, as an architect I love lots of light across the space so I understand I appreciate your choices. : )

    Pretty roses! Poor Skye. If only they could tell us… you never know what is the best decision when you’re so close to the situation. Continued well wishes for her.
