Terry surprised me yesterday with these beautiful orange roses for Valentine’s Day. Our favorite college football team is the University of Tennessee, so the color was appropriate.
I fixed us a nice Valentine’s dinner of New York strip steaks and baked potatoes. Today, Terry is taking me out for a Valentine lunch at Sammie B’s in Lebanon.

Our 17 year old cat, Jessica, spends most of these cold days in our garage. Terry bought this thermostat controlled oil heater to take the chill off. Both of our cats are outdoor cats and I’m so glad we have a nice warm place for them to stay in the winter. Jessica has had some kidney related problems in the last few weeks. I’m happy to say that the antibiotics seem to be working. She has perked up a lot in the last week or so. One more week of antibiotics and it’s back to Dr. Adams to see if her urinary tract infection has cleared up. Keeping our fingers and toes crossed for a good report.

Our sweet Jessie cat turns 18 in April. In the last few weeks she has developed some kidney issues. After some blood work and urinalysis, our vet has determined that she has renal failure. Renal failure is an issue that older cats develop. It isn’t curable, but there are things you can do to manage it. She is also battling a stubborn urinary tract infection. I have been giving her antibiotics for the last week which are starting to help her condition, but she still has a ways to go. After another trip to the vets a few days ago it was determined that she still has the UTI, so it’s another two weeks of antibiotics. I’ll take her back to the vet after that and we’ll see where we stand. She’s such a sweet girl. I know our time with her is growing ever shorter, but for now we will enjoy whatever time she has left.

After days of subfreezing temperatures in Middle Tennessee, the ice and snow is finally starting to melt.
I was starting to get cabin fever, so I ventured out to capture a few shots of what snow remains in our back yard.
