Tonight I'm very tired but I'm grateful that my kind friends have been making a great effort to help me clean my house in preparation for a visit from my nephew on Saturday morning. He's very allergic to cats so besides wanting to make the place look a little less like it's just been burglarized than it usually does, I wanted it as free of cat fur as possible for a house with two cats and a disabled owner. It's looking quite spiffy already. We're going to put the finishing touches on tomorrow and hopefully I'll wake up in plenty of time on Saturday morning. They're arriving between 8:00 and 9:00 am!! Yikes.
So anyway, I'm grateful to have some things cleaned up that I couldn't do for myself and some that I finally got motivated to do for myself and that it will be as fur-free as possible for the royal visit on Saturday morning. Life is pretty darned good. It's not quite ready for photos yet, but maybe I'll add some tomorrow. Tonight I'm too pooped.
Oh - special thanks to Mary, who came and helped with Halloween, who spent her afternoon (Thursday) working very hard, and is returning tomorrow to finish up. That's big time generosity.
Late morning post script: It's going to be a very short visit - only an hour or two - they are passing through on the way to someone's wedding. I was able to get hold of something called Mullein Leaf Tea which I highly recommend if you have anyone allergic like this come to visit. I've used it before and people who usually have a very hard time do quite well. With the tea and reiki, I think he'll be ok for the short time he's here. I think the cats - who are already working on messing it up again - actually kind of like having it clean. It gives them a blank canvass to work on.
