Update on Audrey and a busy long-weekend

Audrey is stable and doing well on her meds. She has been six days now without an episode so we are praying that that is the end of them. She is eating well and enjoying her naps in between medications. I think she secretly is basking in all the extra attention this health scare has brought her. I saw her play with a cat-nip toy today. We still worry and she needs to be checked again next week to see if the fluid between her ears has disappeared from the antibiotics but for now, for today, I feel relief. 

Annie is well and still enjoying her morning treat.

We had a very busy and fun weekend. Two birthdays were celebrated and the retired-guy and I discovered a new 'favorite' breakfast place only ten minutes from the mouse-house. The Metcalfe Bar and Grill did not disappoint.

Our favorite meal out is always the first one of the day.

We ordered our IKEA kitchen for the house and all the windows.
We put an IKEA kitchen in the mouse-house when it was first built and I love it.

The leaves are beginning to change at the top of the many old maples that surround our property. Even the sumacs are beginning to show off. I remember as a child seeing the leaves change from week to week and finding the most beautiful ones to wax and put in a scrap-book. We would bunch some up into bouquets for our gran.

And the garden is still producing...a lot. Today I picked twice; once for us and once for our workers. It's been a wonderful little garden this year in spite of all the rain.
Never in my life did I think the *bang* of a hammer hitting nails would be a favorite sound to me...but it is. :) The house is coming along and I need to get a few photos for you.

The sun is peaking through the clouds now and I best get out to the feeders before Simon comes knocking. He is having a blast watching the workers and entertaining them at break-time. I think I should look for a very teeny construction hat for him before something bonks him on the head. 

I'll check in again soon,
hugs, Deb


  1. Yes, there is always the worry of recurrence. Every little action and omission is analysed to determine what it could mean. Sigh. We care so much for these little creatures...

    What a beautiful harvest you've had from your garden. It's nice to be able to eat what you grow yourself.

  2. I'm so glad to hear that Audrey is doing better. Can't wait to see the new house. Sounds like it is really coming along. You really had a garden this year. Look at all that wonderful produce! You made me laugh about getting Simon a teeny hardhat. I'd love to see that.

  3. Thank you so much for the update on Audrey. I am very relieved that she is progressing along. That is the best news of my day!

  9. Great to hear that Audrey is doing better. I'll keep praying for her though, and for you. And also good to hear that the new house is coming along. Hang in there! Nebraska ><>

  10. Very good news on our girl Audrey! YAY! And so exciting that the house is progressing. Your garden is rocking it -- and I'm seeing a bit of fall here too. Not ready! Will your house be ready by winter?

  11. So happy that Audrey is holding her own! I think that breakfast out is much more of a treat than dinner, myself. Can't wait to see pictures of progress!

  12. I am so happy to hear Audrey is doing well. She is I'm sure enjoying the attention! Good to hear things are moving along with the new house. A touch of fall is in the air here this morning!

  13. When I go to the Ikea store, I dream of owning one of their kitchens...and you are getting one! I will live vicariously through you, okay? We feel so responsible for our kitties and their health, so here's hoping Audrey's progress remains forward!

  14. Glad Audrey is doing better. I'm sure you're feeling better, too!

    We used Ikea for our kitchen reno 3 years ago and love it. I was just there today looking at bathroom possibilities!

  15. Oh! Such a good news! I'm happy, that Audrey feels better.

    When I was a kid I was also making a book with leaves! Sometimes I painted them and I made a leaf stamp :) I still have this notebook somewhere. I think I can make something like this with my daughter :) She'll be delighted! Thanks fo reminding me so nice thing to do.

  16. Glad to hear Audrey is improving. Sounds like the house is coming along!


  17. Relieved to hear Audrey is making progress. My goodness, she's given us a scare. Attention is good medicine: it's always there, it's easy to give and has no nasty side effects. Hugs and kisses to Audrey, Annie too.

  18. Oh yes, pictures please :)
    I'm sure the workers were happy to get some fresh veggies.
    Good that kitty has been doing good the past few days.

  19. Hopefully she's past the worst of it all.
