Felled

I've tried to tell Rocky that he's never going to catch a squirrel if he insists on staying that close to the peanuts... but he keeps trying.
Sorry for the blur - taken through the glass door.
Yep - Rocky and I  have been on squirrel watch all day.
Rocky, because he's a cat, and what else does he have to do all day but sleep?  And me because I've been felled by the most horrible cold of all time.

I've been fighting it since last Sunday, and doing a fairly good job of it too. But yesterday (which was a holiday Monday) after returning from doing some small Wandering Cat business up at Mom's, it hit me like a truck. By bed time there was a fever, and by this morning I'd lost my voice.

I've barely even had the energy to knit - I totally could have been to the armholes on LeStrange by now... but I just can't bring myself to pick up the needles. So squirrel watching it is....

Some days you just need a "squirrel-watching" day. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Feel better! I knew a cold was coming on since last week, but thought I'd beat it. Then Monday came ...

Good luck to Rocky. :-)

Bummer. Get lots of rest and hope you're feeling better soon. There's a couple of really nasty bugs making the round this year- I know a bunch of folks who've had that one.

Boy, that squirrel has no idea how important he has become as an entertainer! I hope he continues to put on a good show.. . and that you feel better soon!

I do hope you feel better soon. I think Rocky has no chance of catching that squirrel but at least he can entertain you while your sick.
