I used to love these weekly “how are you posts” but I fell off the wagon a bit. But now I’m back and I’m ready to chat. So how are you doing? How’s your family? How’s your cats? How’s your job? How’s the weather? Are you looking forward to the holidays?
I know, that’s lots of questions. Take your time answering them.
I guess I’ll answer them too.
How am I doing?
I’m caught a bug. No, not a cute little garden bug. This is a sneezy, sniffly, ear ringing (I sound like a commercial) bug. We’ve had a long week of working and as sometimes happens the day after nonstop work the body needs to crash. My body crashed straight into bed. I’ve been sniffling so much I’m sure I annoy everyone in our office (I’m sorry!). Also I can’t really eat anything so I’ve been living on tea, juice and broth (but sometimes that grosses me out too). Whenever anyone eats in front of me I have to go to the other room. The smells! AGH! Hopefully this will clear up in a few days… until then I’ll be moping around.
How’s my family?
I have some sad news about our Baby Bofinkles. Last week she was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. Ever since her sickness earlier this year Bofinkles has lost almost 2 pounds so I didn’t have a good feeling going into the blood tests. The vet said we did catch it relatively early based on her tests, but she is a 13 year old lady already. Her diet will change to low protein and she’ll be taking supplements twice a day. Eventually I might have to administer her IV a few times a day but we’ll see if that comes to that. She’s already glaring at me with that thought in mind. Bofinkles is my special girl, I wrote about her recently and I really just can’t explain how much I love her. I don’t have a kid but I consider her my baby. She needs me as much as I need her. Lots of people comment that they’ve never seen a cat so attached to someone, I could carry her around in my arms all day and she would love it. She’s just a big special piece of my heart so I’m a bit saddened by this, especially with Essy who died earlier this year. I just want to be a good cat mama. Group hug? Please?
Busy! The last week we spent shooting multiple holiday campaigns and projects. Now we’ll be in full editing mode for the next 2 months. We tend to like to shoot a bunch at once and then disappear in front of the computer. I snapped a few photos from on set last week, do you want to see?
I’m a cat, meow.
In blog job news, I’m working on lots of fun upcoming campaigns – recipes and reviews. I can’t wait to share with you!
How’s the weather?
Confusing, especially for the garden. Some of our cauliflower plants got super confused by the start of Fall and then suddenly almost 90 degree days. The pumpkins as well. The pumpkins depress me the most. I’m not even sure we’re even going to get one pumpkin this Fall due to weather + disease. It’s a bummer.
In other happier garden news… here’s some updates.
3 boxes of sugar snap peas were planted, they all came up!
Cantaloupe! I’m obsessed with cantaloupe chips.
Well that’s it.. I leave you with 2 more thoughts.
