This winter really kicked my arse. I had colds and flu three times (April, July, and August). And generally struggled with energy and motivation.
As of today I am taking a week of annual leave, and the only thing I need to do today is be awake and at home during the hour my groceries are scheduled to get delivered. This is a good amount of responsibility to have.
Over the next 9 days I want to do the following 3 things:
1. Take laptop in for repairs
2. Book and have an appointment with osteopath
3. Spend a night at my dad's.
Also do some chores around the house, but not to spend more than 2 hours a day on them.
Also finish The Stone Sky and start on The Shepard's Crown.
Also some Ingressing if the weather is nice.
Also lots of naps.
Happiness is Cassie headbutting me.
Happiness is an armful of purring kitty.
I think the signs look good for this batch of kitties to be good and socialized as lap cats by the time winter sets in.
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by environmental factors such as pollen in the air or dander on a pet. The resulting reaction is usually itching or congestion. As many as three in 10 people in the U.S. experience allergic reactions to cats and dogs and cat allergies are about twice as common as dog allergies, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). Veterinarians say there is no such thing as a completely hypoallergenic pet. But some cause fewer symptoms than others. Via: The active Times
Dougie the cat loves being held. The 15-year-old ginger feline, who was recently living at the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland in Maine, loves being held so much that when he's not in someone's arms, his "meow can be heard from galaxies far away," the animal shelter wrote on Facebook. Now that is pretty cute!
