This morning I dropped off my cockatiel, Riley, at the vet’s office to have surgery on her wing. As of right now, I am still waiting to hear how she is doing but I have high hopes she will be all right. While I am sitting here waiting to hear from the vet, I thought I would take my mind off the worry and do a gratitude post.
Today I am grateful:
- I have an excellent vet that surrounds himself with an excellent support staff.
- For all the people on the bus who were cool with Riley being there. They aren’t always when people bring animals on the bus.
- For my friend, Steph, and her want to hang out today text. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with myself until I can pick up Riley except for worry. I am beyond grateful for her friendship.
I will be very glad to have Riley home and this wing problem put behind us. You can tell I have been stressed because the last three recipes I have posted here are for desserts. I bake when I am stressed. I hope you are all have a great week and bake just because the day ends in y.
