While sleepy...


I got up full of good intentions this morning, because I had slept well and thought I had slept enough, but after I spent some time behind the computer a great tiredness fell over me and all I wanted to do was lie down on the sofa. This was a little bit of a problem, because I had to see my SPN at 10 am, but I thought I could take a little nap and get over the worst of my fatigue. I laid down on the sofa and was asleep in no time at all, until the phone rang at 9 am. It was the secretary of the clinic where my SPN works to tell me that my SPN was sick and that my appointment was canceled.

I wasn't happy that my SPN was sick, but I was glad that my appointment was canceled and very cozily went back to sleep until 11 am. Then I thought I owed it to Jesker to take him out for a proper walk and after I had a cup of coffee, I got dressed and went for a short walk with him, because the weather was miserable. It was raining and there was a cold wind blowing and it was about 3C. I should say, it was stormy. A lot of the snow had melted, but in some places there were wet, icy patches which I avoided by crossing the street or walking in the street, which always confuses Jesker, because I take him away from all his favorite bushes and trees to leave his mark on.

I was glad when we were back inside and I think Jesker was too. We both had lunch and much to my surprise, he ate everything in his bowl in one fell swoop. He hasn't done that in a long time. Those must be powerful antibiotics he's on.

Whenever I think there's the least indication that he needs attention, he gets it immediately. He only has to give me a look and I'm ready to pet him. I take my time too and rub his ears and his neck and all his favorite spots, but not his belly. I'm too scared to hurt him, although he gives me no reason to think he's in pain, but then he never does complain.

I fell asleep on the sofa in the afternoon petting Jesker, He fell asleep beside me. We are a pair, the two of us. It seems that we're going to sleep through this waiting period of seeing what the antibiotics are going to do for him. When I wake up, I immediately start talking to him, although he can't hear a word I say, but he can see my face and know my intentions, because he reacts to me. He comes over right away and pushes his face in my hands. I always say that Jesker knows how to lipread.

I've got to take him out now, but first I've got to drink a tall glass of juice. I'm so thirsty and coffee doesn't really do the trick.

Have a good evening!

Ciao.

You two are absolutely made for each other. (I think I've told you that before.) I'm so glad he ate his food and that he didn't seem to have any problems today. x

Glad you've had a relaxing day. And enough sleep! ;-)

I like the new template but I'm finding the font a bit hard to read on the red background. Love the picture, though!
