Icky Sicky


Well, it's finally Friday and I have accomplished nothing. Guess what I have? Strep Throat. I thought maybe I was coming down with a cold, but the burning throat wouldn't go away. I have had Strep so much and I knew it, but I just didn't want to admit it. Now, I'm on antibiotics, drinking lots of tea and living off soup and cold chocolate pudding. I'm so mad! I have a Birthday cake to make and I need to get my daughter something for her Birthday. I'm thinking that if I follow up my pain medication for my RA with a Motrin or two, maybe I can do what I need to do. (sigh)
Doesn't Billie look cozy? She is on my lap while I'm using my laptop. She does that a lot. Getting up off the floor is a challenge, but I really like sitting in the living room. Right now Billie is on the love seat behind me, snoring. :)
Cricket is showcasing my new locket. She is a bit of a jewelery thief and usually drags her treasures to the top of the sofa, or under it. She also likes emery boards. I have found missing emery boards under the sofas a lot. Maybe she sharpens her claws and fangs with them.
I'm going to visit a few blogs, take some meds, take a nap and then try to get some things taken care of. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Hi Lorianna,
I am so sorry you are sick! I hope you feel better really soon, with the birthday goings on this weekend too. Take a nice nap....I know that always helps me!
Billie looks super floofy again....and Cricket likes emery boards too? I think there is something about the smell of filed fingernails that gets me. You are lucky to have a guard for your new locket!

Oh, and my mom says you should make nip pillows with the fabric scraps. My mom wishes she had the time and wishes she knew how to sew. Making them is less expensive than buying them....my mom buys them at Petsmart for $1.99 each! But then, maybe we are worth it! hee hee

Oh dear not a strep throat! Just getting through the day on a good day can be a challenge at best. I am so sorry to know you are not well.
Mommy took a nice long tubby today after she finished all of her housework...later she played with me out on the patio for a half a hour. Corn chowder soup for dinner and soon Lapdaddy will make her some coffee as they watch TV together. Tomorrow there is a vintage car show and parade and our car club will be there in full force...I get to go too!
I hope you are up to watching our new CCSI III epiosde on Sassy's blog. All in all a good day at the cozy cottage...wishing the same for you this weekend.
Much love from me and the mommy

Hi Lorianna,
I am glad you are feeling better today. How was your daughter's birthday party?
I changed the background to light blue but I am not sure if I like it....may change it back.
I have not been able to post anything new because mom was so mad again this morning! The armadillos came back last night and dug through every single flower bed in both the front and back yard! It looked like they went swimming through the mulch! Oooh, mom was mad again. She had planted periwinkles last weekend, and they were all messed up. Now she fixed it all again today (all day!) and also planted some hibiscus (her favorite) and some yellow esparanza (another favorite). They say that the only way to get rid of armadillos is catch them or kill them with a gun! I don't think I like the second choice.....
Have a nice evening!
