OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.
We celebrated Polish Mother’s Day on Skype today. Mom said not to buy her anything, so Krystian went out and collected a bouquet of wild field flowers and I designed a special e-card for her – our beloved Miś.
The day was more stressful for a cat mother in Rosebank. After Salieri had completely refused to eat the special thyroid diet food (chicken mixed in or not), she and I returned to the vet and got her new thyroid medication. She was allowed to eat anything she wanted after the meds had been administered by the vet. I have three happy cats in the house again. We managed the evening dose without any complications. And there was a portion of lovely cooked chicken with carrot waiting for Salieri afterwards. Everyone is going to bed with a sigh of relief and a full tummy.
(I might be in need of tranqualisers after the past few weeks, but that’s another story.)
My love was here after work for a simple evening braai. The world seems an easier place to face than it had seemed only twelve hours ago.
Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
