Vanakkam. I’ve mostly been off the blog, with a couple of days re-releasing earlier posts that have been sitting in my drafts admin page since April 2018.
Mostly over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been keeping up and maintaining the house and cats with no assistance from family. Needless to say, it consumed most of my waking time, and even passable time-management skills didn’t help much in my posting new entries on this site.
Otis the Indestructible, one of our old strays, has been getting his regular feedings an average of three times daily, four or more on especially cold days. He doesn’t see or hear very well, but he’s learned to identify me by voice and stride pattern, and comes running when he smells his gushy food. He’s healthy for his age, or would be without his skin condition (we think it’s probably cancerous, and it’s slowly spreading…), and he’s not very social. but I’m glad he took to me so quickly.
I’m back to penning down drafts for new posts here, and will resume operations on the Call by next Tuesday. Family is back in town, and that permits more time for hobbies, like blogging. These last few days since fam returned from their trip, my study time has resumed, but is a bit disorganized, loosely involving Tamil and minor subjects, like mental calculation skills for serious fast number-crunching with precalculus and geometry.
So I’m reopening posting after this unintended pseudo-blogcation.
I’m glad to be back..
