Operation Oysterhood: 19 July

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

Do I understand this correctly: all this time, Zuma does everything he can to stay out of court, and now, he is actually applying to get into a court? Will there be no end to this man’s delaying tactics?

When in doubt, make fire. Mozart and I braaied for my love tonight. Yes, I was wearing my PJs and a winter jacket – the latest in stoep fashion for crazy cat ladies.

Salieri had an unexpected rough night again. She started vomiting at around three a.m. – first time in two weeks. Fortunately, we were seeing the specialist vet today in the morning anyway and he explained what was happening. She had to endure another set of tests and the vet had to endure a full hour of my questioning, but he was very understanding and took the time to explain all options and possible consequences. Salieri was very brave throughout, but we came home exhausted, emotionally and physically. She has been relatively well for the rest of the day. The test results should come in at the end of the week (a lab in KZN has been affected by the events of last week and some things are taking longer even on the veterinary front). We have a plan outline on how to move forward, but details will follow after the test results are in.

While we wait, I try to spend as much time with her as possible and to keep her warm.

Good night.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
