Maggie got to be in snow for the first time last night! It started snowing in the evening and continued for a few hours. So, at about 7 pm, we decided to take her on her evening walk a little early, and I came along. Usually David takes her out at about 9 on his own when I’m getting ready for bed. But, because of the snow we changed that.
She was very curious and sniffed around in the snow a lot. She didn’t play too much in it other than sniffing it quite a bit and trying to eat it at occasionally. But she did seem to like it, and seemed upset when we brought her back inside. We wanted to make sure to take her for her walk while it was snowing. She definitely was interested in it!
I myself had a rough night last night. I was triggered by the sound of a gong yesterday. It brought back a bunch of memories of ritualistic abuse and cult rituals. I woke up at 6 am this morning and was having traumatic memories. It wasn’t a lot of fun. I have my every other week yoga session this morning over Zoom and I’m going to see if we can do some trauma sensitive yoga. That should be good for me.
Here are some pictures of Maggie in the snow (and afterwards):
In other news, Patrick definitely wants to get out in the snow, but we are keeping him inside. He is going through chemotherapy right now and we want him to stay warm. Even though he’s fighting cancer he continues to be the sweetest boy ever, giving kisses all the time and cuddling with me and David. He obviously isn’t too pleased though about the fact that there’s a dog in the house who tries to play with him, but he and Maggie get along sometimes. He also seems happy about Nakia, our new cat, sometimes, and sometimes seems very unhappy about it. Basically he is possessive of me (his mommy) and doesn’t like to share attention with other animals. He’s always been that way. I actually read about Savannah cats last night and that is a common trait of theirs.
Later today we plan on taking Maggie to a dog park so that she can play more in the snow. It’s still on the ground, but not so much on the trees or roads anymore. Hopefully she’ll have fun!
