We had a stay-at-home weekend, which is nice. I got two main things done; a draft of the blurb for Savaged Devotion, and I did a newsletter. Wow, can I just say, I miss Anna (my assistant) It took me forever to navigate my newsletter site. Then I had to figure out a logo. I’ll have a better one done later, right now, I just did a placeholder that is okay for now. I’m working through my fast growing list of things to accomplish. Once I get this stuff a little more under control, I’ll start writing PRIMAL MAGIC. Being an eternal optimist, I’m hoping to write a quick and dirty first draft, but the realist in my rolls her eyes at my foolish dreams.
Maggie went to the vet on Saturday. She loves going in the car! With Covid-19, our animal care hospital asks the customers stay in the car, then they come out wearing masks and take them inside. Since the vet tech is also Youngest Son’s wife, Maggie was thrilled to go with her. She trotted off and didn’t even bother looking back. Overall Maggie’s healthy and in good shape, but she’s gained a pound in the last year and is just a tad over her optimal weight. When her awesome vet told me that (she came out to the car since we’re also friends) I looked at Maggie and laughed. “Like mother like daughter. Time for diets!” She didn’t care, she just wagged her tail. Honestly, I’m happy the vet and my daughter-in-law take such good care of Maggie, and tell me things I can do now to prevent problems later.
But Wizard’s reaction when I told him was hilarious. “Are they calling her FAT? What? Do they think she should be stick thin like a model? Maggie’s not fat! She’s fine!”
I snort-laughed so hard, it’s a wonder my eyes didn’t pop out. I finally convinced him that it was more of a gentle reminder to keep taking good care of Maggie so she doesn’t continue gaining weight and develop painful and expensive health problems that reduce her quality of life. I finally convinced him it’s important for us to be on top of this.
Today is Biker Witch’s birthday! We have plans to go to lunch at a winery where they have a big outdoor shaded terrace. It should be reasonably Covid-safe, and I’m happy to take the risk to see my sister. I miss her!
So that’s my weekend, how was yours?
