A cat and a black eye

A quick note. Here's my Tobie cat enjoying his favorite Vera Bradley box. He likes to sit in it while I'm keyboarding at the computer.
The second photo is the windowsill above my chair where he likes to sit and keep watch over the community happenings. Here in is where my second exciting event began. I take power naps. Its just a matter of fact, I like to nap and yesterday was no exception. While dozing to Fox News on the tv, I woke to this searing pain in my face and eye area. Once I got my eyes opened and focused, I saw a blur of gray fur struggling. Seems as though My Tobie somehow lost his balance on the window sill and landed on me, the loving master who feeds and waters him. It all happened so quickly, I don't really know what transposed. I do know that I was in pain and bleeding all over one of my favorite blouses. I called my friend Karen, the nurse, and asked her what I should do. She told me, and now here's my bright shiner. This was taken early this morning. The bruise is even worse now. My Sunday School class got a kick out of Miss Becky's eye. I covered it pretty well with make up, however, when I went to the Communion rail in church, Pastor did a double take when he saw me up close. Karen and I were quite the pair today at church. She had extensive dental work done this week so she had a good sized bruise on her chin. We looked like we had been in a brawl!
