I decided to have a birthday last week. I was thinking of not having anymore but then I would lose out on cake. I have my limits. I got some nice pressies to boot! My mother got me some nice new bedding, which I really needed since I’ve been using my old King sheets on my new Queen bed. She also got me the awesome orange shoes that go perfectly with Vyctor (and are almost as big as him too!):
Mike got me a great new shower speaker. The colour sure is perfect. When I installed the app on my phone, I was asked to name the speaker. I decided to honour one of my favourite artists….introducing Ozzy Bosebourne:
The sound is amazing! Showers are much more enjoyable now! I asked Boo what she thought and she gave me this look (which I’m yet to decipher):
Pinky didn’t care at all as she was too enamored with her rainbow:
This early start to winter hasn’t been enjoyed by the kitties so far, as it’s a little chilly in the apartment. I can’t turn the heat up. They stay snuggled under blankets, or suck the heat out of the baseboard heaters:
I never get sick of looking at little Mya in her SpongeMya Squarepants shirt. Just look how tiny and adorable she looks:
Two of her sisters, Pinky and Boo, enjoy getting dual butt-rubs from Mike. For some reason, Mya and Abby aren’t into butt-rubs:
I sure love these little dorks. I’ve been spending more time with them lately since I’ve been going through more frequent bad days health-wise. I’m just hopeful that the next day will be better, plus the support from my family, friends and kitties helps me get through it. Also, being able to go flying on my good days. I was able to take someone up last week and he was a blast to fly with. We flew over Niagara Falls a couple times and then I let him fly us back to the airport for some aerobatics. He did great with everything, and I was able to show him all maneuvers in my aerobatic repertoire at least twice each. It was a great flight!
I was all geared up for another great flight on Sunday morning. Fortunately, I was feeling well enough and the weather that morning looked quite good. I was going to fly my youngest passenger again. She was up with me in August and was so much fun to fly with. Unfortunately, by the time I got half way to the airport, the weather had already started to drop. By the time I got there (the drive is only 15 minutes), the ceiling was too low to fly over Niagara Falls or do aerobatics. I double checked the weather report with the tower and they certainly didn’t have good news. I drove over to the Flying Club, and they were in the process of cancelling their morning flights. Bummer! Hopefully we can re-book for December. At least I got to see cute, little Vyctor, who recently had his wheel pants removed for winter. Look at his spindle-shanks:
And, of course, snuggled with with Flying Club cat (I like to call Clubby):
I got quite a bit down around home that morning. I seem to get behind on things with these more frequent bad health days. It makes sense since on many of these days, I’m stuck in bed for part or the whole day. I still seem to be hit with weakness like I’ve never had before. I can tell in the morning if it’s going to be one of those days, so at least I have warning. It just makes it almost impossible to plan anything, particularly trips. I’m aiming to have a better year in 2020!
Today’s symptoms: I knew I was going to be hit with some yucky symptoms at some point. The weakness kicked in around 4:30 this afternoon. I’m just trying to finish up this blog so I can go crawl into bed. I think three of the kitties are already there and will make some room for me.
