Two weeks of vacation :-)
The yule ham (3,6 kilo or 7,9 pounds) is on its first round in the electric oven, there’s a fire in the stove, Doris and her daughter are eating outside my cottage and Sune is sleeping close to the stove. We came home an hour ago and the fire stove isn’t warm enough yet, that’s why I’m using the electric one for a change. The surgery went well and even if the stitches are on the inside he still needs to wear the cone of shame poor thing.
He doesn’t seem to care about the cone especially much but he gets a bit angry when he can clean himself up. The vet said that he can play as wildly as he normally does with Nova without risking the stitches to break. But after eating the only thing he wants to do is to sleep 🙂 The vet gave me four pain killing pills so I’ll give him one around 9 tonight or if he shows any signs of feeling pain.
The vet station I go to is very laid back and totally stress free, well not if one is in a hurry, it always takes much longer time than one have expected 🙂 There’s no reception to go to, if one has an appointment they just call when it’s time. The vets and the rest of the personnel are always in a good mood and laughs a lot. If there’s an emergency case they’ll take that immediately and the rest of us will just have to wait 🙂 They also always remember my name when I go there. They are rather cheap as well and that doesn’t hurt 🙂
It’s already smelling like ham in my kitchen but it will take around two hours before it’s done. After that I think I’ll put in lots of liver in the oven, I had to take out quite a lot to get place for the other things I’ve bought 🙂 It’s for the dogs, they love it when I mix in liver in their food 🙂 Well the cats doesn’t complain either 🙂 But first I’ll make a pot of tea and a couple of sandwiches and then I’ll see if there’s anything worth watching on tv. Two weeks vacation ahead and peace and tranquility descends upon the little cottage in the village at the outskirts of the world.
Have a great day!
