I had a fun knitting post all set to share on Saturday, but it needs the photos that are stuck in our camera. So please pardon this photo-less post until we get that straightened out!
I'm making good progress on the hoodie armholes and hope to have a photo of that soon too. But for now, I'll give you the...
Charlie had an X-ray on Friday at his regular vet office in preparation for the Radiocat treatment. The doctors at the clinic will be reviewing all his test results in the next few days, and letting us know if there is anything else we need to do. Barring surprises, we'll take him on November 14 to the clinic, where he'll have the iodine injection for his thyroid. He and his radioactive self will have to stay for 3 days until it passes out of his system, so all of us at the seashore will be miserable until he comes home. Except maybe Tim, who will love the chance to be alpha cat for a little while.
C and I decided to take our house off the market this week. We've had lots of people tour the house since August, but no offers. I've heard that people who are managing to sell their houses around here have had to reduce the prices drastically, and since we don't *have* to move, we thought it best to wait until spring. It's disappointing, but I'll try to believe that it means the perfect house for us just isn't ready yet.
In my now-regular Saturday tradition (but it is Monday!), here is Booking Through Thursday:
- Do you make notes in books as you read them? Heavens no. (wincing at the very idea) (Pay attention C!)
- Why or why not? I don't like defacing the book pages, particularly if they are books that are printed on good paper, or books that are classics. Also, if the book outlasts me, or is weeded from my collection, the next reader probably does not want to see my thoughts on the text. They should be free to form their own. This, C, is what journals and palm pilots, or even post-its, are for. (My dear C, it pains me to admit, ravages book pages with his written notes. And folded-down corners. Other than that, he is a nearly perfect husband, LOL).
- If you do, do you make notes only in certain kinds of books or all of them? Crossword puzzle books. Lesson workbooks. That's about it.
Thank you so much for your votes on the red vs. pink bicycle dilemma in my last post. I will let you know soon which one I choose!
Edited to add: Seeing our neighbor's cat outside just now reminded me to beg you all to PLEASE keep your animals, particularly cats, particularly black cats, indoors tonight -- mischief night. There are too many sick people out there that want to do harm to them. I hate even having to post this, but, if it saves one life, it will be more than worth it. Here are some other safety tips from the ASPCA for pets for tomorrow...
