My little Naya still tests positive for heart worm, that she was treated for in PA in December.
So she is at the vet's, for two nights and three days, to be treated yet again.
I would rather have a root canal, than leave her there.
I can only imagine that she feels it has happened again: abandonment. She doesn't know the word, but I am sure she knows the feeling.
I asked if I could bring her home at night, and bring her back the next morning, but they want her to have "cage rest", and not move around much at all.
I know she will be scared and traumatized, and I am just going to have to try to put it out of my mind, since there is not one thing I can do about it.
I took her bed with her, and an old hoodie of mine, that smells like me, in the hopes that it will comfort her, and she might know that I am coming back for her.
On the weaving front, I just threaded the AVL for 50 more towels, with a bright white warp.
That will be it for towels in 2018...I will have well over 200.
Months ago, I wound a bamboo warp on the warping board. I did it in several sections, intending to dye it. I put it in a small tote, and there it sat. Forgotten.
So a couple of weeks ago, when I was cleaning, I found it, and the very next day, I dyed it. I used a blog post from Melissa at Tangible Daydreams
Her post inspired me, and made me think that I could do it.
So yesterday, L and I decided it was the day. Well, I decided, and L went along with it.
She sleyed the reed, threaded the heddles, and then we beamed it on.
Unbelievably, it went on without a hitch.
I am beyond pleased, and can't wait to do another dyed warp.
There are blotches of turquoise, green, gold and gray all along the warp. It's really beautiful.
Today, I spent the whole day with my daughter and two youngest grands.
We went out to lunch.
I had an awesome spinach, apple, black bean and corn salad, with grilled shrimp on top.
Other than the dressing, it was ZERO POINTS.
And even though I was sad about leaving Naya, these two did a great job of taking my mind off that.
They are the best medicine anyone could ever ask for.
