best buddies – Grace and Cadbury

these two hang out on the couch and curl up on beds, Cadbury likes to groom Grace’s face just about every day – all of the cats get along well with Grace but these two are best buddies.

the lingering cold


The lingering cold, meaning mine and the local weather.

A couple of days ago I finished the second course of antibiotics and still I am sick.  Better but still sick.  My sister is still stuck in her second bout of this darned thing, as well.  I don’t think I have ever blown my nose this many times before, not even if I added up all the colds I have ever had.  The cough is 99.9% non-productive.  I have been to see my family phizz twice over this thing.  Hopefully a little more patience and it will flee.

Although it was sunny and just -5C today, it was a bitter cutting cold.  I guess my body’s thermostat glanced at the calendar and bought into this Spring propaganda.
