It's official, everyone in the house has become a living hot-water bottle for Kai the cat. I must admit, I feel a little used. It's window this and window that, until sitting by the window isn't warm & cozy anymore.

I've also noticed that she's starting to get that puffy look, which of course means her undercoat is filling out. She kind of looks like a sumo wrestler in certain poses.

Yes, she was sleeping but her nosiness made her open her eyes.

Kai also loves to lick the blankets she lying on, to death. I have to try & get video of it. It's quite amusing & cartoon-ish looking.

Do your animals want to snuggle more, as the weather cools down?

Fall officially started this past Saturday & so far I love it. Here's what I love about fall (I was thinking of writing autumn, but who am I kidding. I don't think I've ever said autumn out loud in my life. Well, until I'm reading this out loud, anyway...)

  • The cool, crisp weather. Breathing in that air is great.
  • The late sunrises. Especially great, when you can sleep in.
  • The bugs burrowing away. Wherever they go, peace be with them.
  • The fashions look & feel better to me.
  • The leaves are dying, but the colour change is beautiful.

What do you love about fall?

I'm also trying something new in my diet, to help with my Fibromyalgia symtoms. It's called maca root and it's used for various other aliments like infertility & libido. I've been adding a tsp of it to my daily protein shakes. I'll see in 30 days or so, if I have more energy & less of this soul-sucking fatigue.

I've also heard about consuming a low oxalate diet, to help with Fibromyalgia symptoms. Spinach, which I add to my protein shakes are apparently very high in oxalates. But then spinach is another good source of vegetable protein. I can't seem to win with the food. But one thing at a time. Here is an article on Fibromyalgia and Oxalates, from

Has anyone had any success with maca root, or a low oxalate diet?

This week is also continued editing of my short story, and studying for my writing course final. The course went by quicker than I thought, it feels like I just started it. More on my thoughts, after my final exam.

Till next time,
