Ms G at the Spa

Really.....Ms G does have it good....life with LM is like living at a spa....constant pampering, massage, grooming, meals and fresh water at any and all times, soft places to bask...... on weekends she gets double doses of spa life.

Still in the ugly, but comfy, orange fleece and looking a bit hung over (2 small glasses of sangria?) on my birthday - Sunday morning. The kitchen was sunny at LM's, I was NOT. Do not know why, but I was so low, sad and full of tears all day, and was definitely not nice to LM...I just wanted to cuddle Ms G and rest all day. I gave myself permission and LM, in his infinte wisdom, let me be. Ms G was not cooperating so I picked her up and here I am holding her against her will...She was howling and giving me these low pitched meows...... Oh, well, guess she picked up on my mood. Don't you just love the look?

After that, I just cuddled in that sunny chair, as Ms G sat herself down in the sun at my feet and looked up at me so sweetly. She loves her morning "spa" spot.




Not sure if I have mentioned before that Ms G ONLY eats Whiskas Temptations in the red bag. Through the years I have tried all sorts of cat food, people food, etc, and she will not touch any of it. Recently, daughter, Anne, mentioned that her vet had highly recommended Science diet for indoor cats, especially to improve the coat, so I thought I would lay out the big $'s and give it a try.....aha, she loves it! Let's see if it helps her sometimes "open" and dry coat. Now the big trick, though, is to make sure that her new owner, aka, LM, does not relent, and open the "red bag."

Back to my birthday.....I really think the low feeling I had was the aftermath of a massage last Friday, and from being very tired. It's all gone now. Poor LM, he wanted to take me to my favorite french restaurant (L'Alouette in Harwichport) for dinner and I just said NO. Instead we had fresh corn, a salad and a cupcake....YUM.
I did receive so many nice cards and gifts and am ever so grateful in so many ways.....

Happy belated birthday. Seems I understand your ups and downs and we have never met. I just listen to you and to my heart...
Take care of yourself!

Obviously Ms Graysea is doing very well. Hope you are feeling better as well.

My theory is you can do what ever you want on your birthday. Any thing at all. Don't have to make your bed, don't have to get dressed if you don't want too, and don't have to be cheery. It's your day to do as you please. Nice that LM was wise enough to let you be on your Birthday! Nice of Ms G to sit with you. What a sweet girl...debbie Happy Belated Birthday!

Sorry you were so down on your birthday. Some days are just like that and it's best to roll with it...as you and LM did . Here's to better days ahead.

I've miss you. I wanted you to know that. Your words of wisdom and friendship have meant so much to me this past year and a half and I'm sure I've never taken the time to fully acknowledge that. Here's hoping I can get myself back on the path to being a better cyber friend.

Hugs to you...

Thanks for stopping to read my blog--which meant I had to immediately come over here and read yours. Thanks for your words on joint replacement--they have calmed me a bit.

Such a lovely place you get to live. So near the ocean--I am terribly jealous.

I had a day like that last week--so deeply sad and depressed and just wanted to cry. Don't know why, but my sister said on FB she was having a gray day. So perhaps--we all were tuned in to the same spirit?

I do enjoy your postings
