I missed posting yesterday. So, here's an update of my weekend and what's up.
My sweet Penelope went in for surgery this morning. I'm trying hard not to worry about my sweet girl. I found a lump where her microchip normally is. I Googled to see if tissue can grow around microchips or if they can cause tumors. I was shocked to see that tons of stuff came up about microchips causing cancer and lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies that manufacture them. YIKES! I took her in to have it checked yesterday. The good news is that the lump doesn't seem to be attached and can be moved around. And, her lymph nodes seemed to be fine. They're going to remove the lump today and send it in for testing.
Poor baby was so scared this morning. It was so hard to take her in for this but it seems to be the right thing to do. I don't want to wait and take a chance of it being bad and spreading to the point of not being able to do anything. I love this girl SO much! She's the sweetest and most loving kitty we've ever had. She's so attached to me and wants to be with me almost constantly. She comes to me often for snuggles and looks at me with ooey, gooey, loving, eyes and always has lots of kisses for me. Fingers crossed she'll be just fine!
I snapped this pic over the weekend of her enjoying the morning sun. Looks like she's meditating.
I bought a crock over the weekend that I'd had my eye on at my favorite antique shop. They were having a sale, it was still there, and I got it for less. Woot! I put my antique rolling pins in it. I love the rich color of it.
Hubby and I went to Oceanside for a bike ride on Sunday. It was a cool, cloudy day with temps in the mid to high 60's. Ahhhh!...a nice break from the heat wave we had for a few days at home.
These gorgeous Matilija Poppies were growing near where we parked. The bushes were about five feet high and loaded with these beauties!
Our garden has some veggie babies! Yay! I snapped a few pics this morning.
A volunteer butternut plant seems to be doing well...
More tomatoes! I'm so excited for these tasty treats!
We have an eggplant blossom! :-D
I plan to stay busy crafting and working around the house today to stay really busy and keep my mind from worrying about my sweet Penelope. I get to pick her up sometime this afternoon.
