Happy Sunday

“Nobody really cares if you’re miserable, so you might as well be happy.”

Happy Sunday, everybody!  I hope you’ve been having an awesome week…or at least are looking at an awesome week ahead. :Jack

This week, I AM HAPPY that the first book in my “Project: Passion” mini-series for Harlequin Desire, PROJECT: RUNAWAY HEIRESS, is finished & turned in.  Whew!  It feels so good to have that story done & in Editor C’s hands.  I need to start the next book in the series PDQ, but at least I have Photobucketa minute to breathe & try to catch up on all the things I let lapse while under the pressure of that deadline.

I AM HAPPY that Precious (aka Elder Kitty) continues to do very well.  The trip to the vet was scary, but so far, the change in food & treatment seems to be working.  She’s pooping up a storm *vbg* & seems happy.  In fact, I’d almost venture to say she seems a little happier than before.  I’ve caught her doing a couple things in the last week that I haven’t seen her do in quite a while.

I AM HAPPY, too, that my mission to track down new, healthy food for her was a total success!  She’s been okay on the food I picked up right after the trip to the vet, but it’s not high enough quality for my tastes.  I wanted something 1oo% natural that I feel is really good for her, not just that she’d like.  (Hey, I like potato chips; that doesn’t mean they’re good for me. :vampsmile )

So I went on a shopping spree, determined to track down something much better for her—after doing quite a bit of research online, of course.  And I’m happy to say, I found a couple different brands I think I’d be comfortable feeding her on a regular basis.  And more, of what I’ve fed her so far, she seems to LIKE them!  That’s so important…’cause it doesn’t matter how good something is for her if she won’t touch it. :cat

A funny aside, by the way…

While I was out & about, I ran into no fewer than three people I knew, & every single one of them said the same thing:  “Oh, my gosh, you’re out of the house!  What’s the occasion?”  This is how much of a hermit I’ve become.  How sad is that? :lolgeez

Also cat-related, I AM HAPPY that I found a new handmade cat tree that they just love!  Ever since I had my back porch door re-screened, I’ve been wanting something like it that would give The Kittehs the best view outside.  Shaped sort of like a teepee with carpeted seats at different angles & levels, it fits just perfectly where I needed it, & they are loving it so far.  Even fighting over it on occasion. LOL  I’m just sorry I didn’t find it earlier in the summer so they could enjoy all that fresh air & wildlife longer.  But it will be there for them the first day of next Spring.  And I’ve already got another spot in mind for them to continue getting great use out of it once Winter hits. :mask

So that’s my week in a nutshell.  How about you?  Let us know what great stuff has been happening for you lately!

    Happy Sunday. I am happy that it is finally fall and I won’t melt while out running. I am happy that although my DH had me drive all the way to Alabama for him to go to a store where he didn’t buy a thing we had a fun trip none the less.

      I’m right there with you, Donna. Altho, I hate the frigid cold of winter as much as the stifling heat of summer, so… :yesimavampire

      And too funny about your trip. That’s happened to me, & it’s nice that you can laugh it off & say you enjoyed the ride, even if you didn’t find what you were looking for. :fangs

    Happy Sunday and Congrats Mary M! :drink

    I am happy that your elder Kitteh is feeling frisky again!! Animal health scares me!! I worry and worry if they start acting “off”.

    I am happy this week because I got to see Diamond Rio in concert last night in Shipshewana…only 20/30 minutes from home! The tickets were a birthday gift from my sister! The seats were excellent except that we sat directly behind the sound guy..and he was a mountain!! But they had big screens everywhere so it was alll good!!!! :vampsmile

    I am happy that fall break is almost here! October 15 starts our week off!!! I CAN last that long! Hahahahaha

      I’m with you—animals can’t tell you what’s wrong or where it hurts. 🙁

      I saw your post on FB about the concert. Very nice—I like Diamond Rio.

      And yay on the break! It seems like you just started, but I’m all for as many vacays as they’ll let you have. :bluesuedeshoes

    I glad to hear your little kitty is doing so well, that your book is finished and you got out and had some fresh air…

    I am happy that my brother and niece are coming over today.. My brother is going to help me take three huge boxes of books to the library for the Annual Library Sale..
    Then he is going to take me to WalMart and then help me take some plants in from outside…

    All in all it is going to be a happy Sunday.. Enjoy all.. :Jack :elvira

    • Heidi says:

      Thanks, Kathleen! Sounds like you have a busy day ahead! And how awful is it that all I want to say is, “No! Don’t take those books to the library until I go thru them!” I’m such a book whore. I buy them, borrow them…if you turn around long enough, I might even steal one from you. :lolgeez

    So glad your kitty is doing better.

    It’s always nice when our pets get better after not feeling all that well.

    I’m happy that my daughter had an ultrasound and we know it’s a boy!
