Our whirlwind vet visit included x-rays and a brief threat of serious surgery. Fortunately the x-rays indicated Lexie did not have an unusual hernia. She is currently being treated with antibiotics. Her age and changes in hormones since her surgery almost two months ago have created a condition that may be with her permanently. We shall see. Otherwise, she is doing well after her vet visit.
We are modifying some things around the house this weekend in our further attempts at kitten-proofing. They are still too small to be allowed free roaming priviliges, but their area of romping is getting slightly larger. Kittens are great therapy! Laugh-out-loud type therapy. Highly recommended.
Meanwhile it has been a miserable summer for me, garden-wise. The hot dry conditions played havoc with containers; a thankless task this daily or twice-daily watering. We had not planted a vegetable garden this year because my brother is physically unable to work in it. I had had plans to add to my magickal herb garden and the moon garden, but just never did. It has been a difficult adjustment.
Looks like our migratory birds have started their trips to destinations south. The night-time chorus is getting louder as the summer begins its last days. Seems like just a couple of weeks ago we were celebrating the first day of summer.
Still, there are moments of summer left before the leaves turn and the snow flies.
The Wheel turns slowly, but inevitably.
