It's Friday...

It's Friday and as usual I was late for Jenny Matlock's Warm Heart Wednesday.  I went over to her blog and there was no Warm Heart Wednesday, but a post from Jenny.  Her health has not gotten any better and the pain has gotten worse.  She has taken a break from blogging.

I joined Jenny for her very first Alphabe-Thursday event.  That was a number of years ago.  I don't blog much, but Jenny's events kept me on track and at least once I week I usually posted and read blogs.  I will miss Jenny and hope and pray she'll be back in the near future.  I'm going to try and keep posting weekly.

I had already found something to use for this week's Warm Heart Wednesday and decided to go ahead and post it.

I found a Walgreen's advertising supplement in last week's Parade Magazine.  The supplement was called "11 Sneaky Hacks for Better Health."

Did you know that you should watch a cat video on You Tube?   A study from Indiana University found that the positive emotion you get from watching those cute cats actually boosts your emotional energy.  They claim that any task you do afterwards will be done with more energy and efficiency.

Go ahead and give it a try.  I always think cats are pretty funny at Christmas.
(Here's a tip.  If you have cats put the tree up a couple of weeks before you decorate it.  I find that my cats will check it out and quickly lose interest.  I only have one cat that ever climbs it.  By the time it's decorated they all leave it alone.)

Watching a cat video works for me, but I'm the crazy neighborhood cat lady here.  It might not work as well for you.

Speaking of cats...It's been a sad week.  I found out a week ago that my oldest cat probably has lung cancer.  He had been losing weight for a while.  I thought he probably was starting with kidney failure since I've lost older cats in the past to that, but the X-ray showed something in his one lung.  It could be something else, but in older cats it's usually lung cancer.  He's not eating much anymore, but acts OK in every other way.  So, we're taking it one day at a time.

This is Buddy in healthier days.  I know I'm going to miss him when he's gone.

Thanks for visiting...


  1. Oh my goodness Betty that cat video was funny! I never thought about them trying to climb a Christmas tree.
    I am so sorry about Jenny - I pray for her to get well.
    And I am very sorry about Buddy. I know from having a pt they are like our children and losing him will be very, very hard on you.
    Love, sandie

  2. Hi, Betty,

    I'm thinking positively that Jenny's health shall improve and she'll be back to blogging. I will miss her in the meanwhile. Big hugs to you and Buddy.

  3. Yes it's sad that Jenny is so ill, although I could never find out what exactly she has. Do you know ? I also post a story on Thursdays now, I'll try to make it fun posts.
