Today gets a special gratitude post. Most of my gratitude posts are private, but this one is public. Today is the day that I had it confirmed that there no more cancer in my body and I don't have to do any chemotherapy. The following is in no particular order.

I am grateful that my cancer is gone.

I am grateful for a fantastic surgeon who was reassuring and skillful.

I am grateful for my husband who supported me through this whole ordeal.

I am grateful to my parents for all they did to for me.

I am grateful to all of my friends and who helped out, kept me company and sent love and good karma.

I am grateful to co-workers who send the good karma.

I am grateful that I don't have to undergo even more painful treatments.

I am grateful that the scar is healing nicely.

I am grateful I will be able to resume my normal activities soon. I feel better and better every day.

I'm grateful my cats still love me after not being able to sit in my lap for a couple of months.

I think I'm just generally grateful about life.

Not a zombie cat, but I may have temporarily acquired a backyard cat again.

Cranberry was having a fit at the back door a few minutes ago. So of course i go and check. And there is this beautiful Tortishell cat at my backdoor trying to get in. So of course because I don't recognize it as one of the neighbour cats I go outside and check. This cat throws itself at me for love and starts purring. Totally covered in knots which makes me believe that this puddy tat is homeless.

Especially with the way it tried to come in even with both Cranberry and Tabitha hissing and growling (I didn't realize Tabitha could growl).

So of course the sucker I am, I gave it some food which it wolfed down like it hadn't eaten in days.

If it's still there I may take a photo in a few. It's a bit late to try and bring it to Toronto Animal Services tonight, but I'm going to keep an eye out for it over the next few days and if it really is a stray, I'll bring it in.

This one doesn't look like the survivor type that my zombie cat was.

Makes me miss my zombie cat. I still miss Snowball a lot.

Yup, that time again.

If your journal has seemed dead for over a year, you've been pruned.

So this weekend is the pre grand opening weekend for the club that went into Savage's space.

I was walking by on my way up to Neutral and popped in for a few minutes. It was that gravitational pull of "I must go up the stairs"

Savage Garden the club is not. But I wasn't expecting it to be at either.

They are going to be from what i can tell an electonic/house club. I think they will do well. I don't think I will be likely to be hanging out there. But I think I'm going to drop by it again sometime when it's not opening night just to see what it's like. 15 minutes really isn't enough to time judge a place properly and in my case with such an emotional attachment to what was makes it difficult not to compare it. Cause they are completely different clubs.

It was a strange, strange feeling being in there and it not being Savage Garden as I have spent so much time in that space.

I was really kind of weirded out with the interiors. I was expecting completely different. But there were some elements of Savage that they kept. They kept the cage. The bathrooms, while renovated, the doors are the same and they kept the graffiti on the door. The old stools were all lined up in front of the bar.

The dancefloor now has wall of mirrors on the cage side. And they haven't finished yet with the front room.

The feelings of familiarity yet different made me really miss the bar.

My brain is mush. And I'm not being the most articulate, so I'm gonna stop now.

I recently came across this clip of Maya Plisetskaya dancing the dying swan in 1969. I just can't get over how beautiful it is. So I'm sharing.

Well, my munchkin is gone.

Today my wee Snowball headed off to the pet afterword. It sucked but he's not in any pain anymore.

You will be missed.
I hope we were able to make your last year on the planet a comfy and loved one. You were loved.

Snowball - my wee zombie cat

Come on out as it's your last chance....Saturday January 3, 2009

I was getting all nervous about having to stand up in front of about 100 people and say my vows to the man I love as I have difficulties speaking in public. But when the time came, I found my voice and was able to in a loud and clear voice pledge myself to my husband.

I loved you then and I love you know. It seems like just yesterday we were standing there and not 10 years ago.

IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

I heard the bombers fly over during our moment of silence. Either that or some strange drilling was happening on the 2nd floor.

Don't usually promo events and such in my journal, but this is a charity fashion event for a no kill dog shelter. And the small ones are always short of cash and the doggies need all the help they can get. All proceeds are going to the shelter.

In addition to the fashion show there are also local fashion vendors as well.

So it's this Friday night at Savage Garden....see details below. I'm actually going to the AC/DC show that night, but I'm hoping to drop by on my way home.

So off I go on a trek this morning to the Riverdale Animal Hospital for my wee stray cat Snowball.

He's got a nasty gash on his forehead and well, I just have to do something about it. Sadly the Queen West Vets don't have any appointments available today so off to walk in land I go. So it's trek time for me.

Pape and Danforth.

I hope Snowball likes the subway.

I just got a call from a telemarketer. And before I could tell the guy that I was in no way interested in what they were selling, he accidentally hung up on me.

It was awesome.

In other news.....nothing

Today was a wonderful day on my vacation.

It started up with a trip up to the old hood for Fish & Chips at Penrose (the best fish & chips ever!) with [livejournal.com profile] margrock & [livejournal.com profile] scumm_boy. Lots of memories and lots of changes to the neighbourhood.

Then it was off to Regent Park to take some photos of the demolition. Sadly all the neat stuff I saw when there was no half torn down buildings to photograph anymore, but there will be more soon. Had fun wandering around the neighbourhood and then it was off to Kensington for some poking around and such.

The photos didn't turn out quite how I intended, but it was still fun taking them and I now know which setting I should use on [livejournal.com profile] __flatline__'s camera to make them not have a blue tint to them which is good.

I hope everyone had a great 6-6-6 day!
