Make The World Go Away

Remember that old song.... "Make The World Go Away....."?  
That's how I felt yesterday.

We'd gotten up early and spent most of the day before riding the horses 
at Douthat State Park.  
Then we rushed home, quickly showered 
and went to a Rockbridge Rapids baseball game until late that evening.  

It was a whirlwind of a day with a lot of junk food consumed so 
I wasn't too surprised when I woke up the next morning with a headache, 
sore muscles and a general blah feeling.  

When I stumbled out to the kitchen in search of aspirin, I saw that someone else in the family was having a similar morning and had captured my sentiments perfectly.

I decided that she had the right idea.  

While I couldn't tuck myself into such a neat little ball and hide my eyes, 
I did go back to bed 
and then spent the day at home accomplishing little more than drinking coffee, 
reading and catching up on internet news.  

After a day of hiding from the world,  I was back to my old self this morning 
and so was Her Highness, 
Rolling about so quickly that I couldn't get a photo that wasn't blurry.....

playing with her tail and stretching....

With her sharp hearing, clear eyesight and agility, you'd never mistake her for 15 years old.  

If you remember the post about Atta's new bed
you'll notice that tiny Noel is still laying claim to the German Shepherd sized bed.  
Poor Atta rarely gets to lay in it!  


  1. 15? she's beautiful! and glad you took a day to recupe!

  2. Everybody likes sleeping on a BIG bed. :-)

  3. Sometimes, everyone needs a day like this; mine was Thursday. BTW, take your aspirin before going to bed...helps you sleep and you feel a LOT better the next morning.

  4. OMG! I can't believe you went riding at Douthat!!! My family went there in the late 50's through mid-60's every summer. I loved that place. How exciting! We lived in Alexandria, VA, and now my brother has a place in Waynesboro. Unfortunately I live in New York state, and I have never been to Douthat since I was eleven or 12. (shhhh, do not do any math, now!!! lol) Thanks for the memory of that wonderful time.
    Your adorable cat is indeed a sweetie!

  5. Cats So have the right idea about how to spend the day, relaxing and curled up in a nice big bed. Glad to read that you took the hint and followed through, Grace!
