A weird variety of topics, I know.
The weather here has been unseasonably cool this week. Which is fine by me ~
it's been a nice break from the heat. Though Tuesday was too chilly. I think the
high temp was only 60 degrees. I met a couple of friends for lunch at a restaurant
on the river. We thought we'd be enjoying a warm summer day on the patio. Ha!
We were the only ones there. And we were wearing jackets. Crazy.
While we were enjoying our lunch, we had a visit from Mama Duck and her babies.
The babies were so cute! They were still kind of fuzzy.
Speaking of fuzzy, I haven't talked about my own fur babies, nor posted any
photos in a long time. Shame on me! Clementine loves to sit on the stack of
books on this chair in the living room. I love this shot I got of her in the sunbeam.
Clem is the kitty who showed up on my doorstep four years ago.
The two boys - Zippo (front) and Monkey - are seen here, lounging on my bed.
Can you believe Zippo is 15 years old? He sure doesn't look like it, does he? He
is still very active, eats a healthy diet, and doesn't have any health problems. He
does struggle a bit with climbing stairs though. Like most elderly cats, it's his back
legs. They get arthritis. He is such a love...very snuggly. He sleeps with me every night.
Monkey is a sweet cat, but a bit neurotic. He's afraid of strangers, every little noise, and
doesn't like to be held. Oh - and he's Clementine's baby! When Clem showed up at our
house, she was pregnant. She only had two babies and one was stillborn.
For whatever reason, Monkey loves to sleep in the wicker basket on top of the buffet.
Sometimes he puts his paws over his eyes during the day while he's sleeping.
A built-in eye mask?
I'm still working hard at decluttering "stuff" in the storage part of my basement!
This was all the stuff I donated the other day, including the bags you see on the floor.
All that stuff took up eight paper grocery bags plus one big trash bag.
And there's still more to do! Feels so good to get rid of excess stuff.
Happy Thursday, everyone.
