A wild week indeed!
Where are my vitamins! – It was an exhausting week – back from the beach, then an invasion of granddaughters. What I hate about aging is the lowered energy level. Doesn’t matter how you spin it, it’s less than it was 20 years ago. Sigh!
Quick! Under the bed! – That was uttered over and over by the feline residents as the energy level of the house peaked and waned. Only Morgan was delighted to see the short noisy people. She doesn’t think the rest of us are exciting enough for her.
Presents, presents – Cats have a way of making their feelings known even without the English language. Mollie took to barfing frequently. She even did a really big one right where I put my foot down getting out of the bed. Yes, I cleaned it up but that wet reminder was there for a day or two. On the other hand, Jake preferred to express his displeasure at 3 a.m. Egad! He’s lucky he’s alive.
Therapy – My favorite recovery method from all this high energy stuff is a touch of shopping. I found some fun sneakers (which I could use) plus a bunch of stuff I didn’t need at all (I resisted those, just pawing the merchandise was enough). I found nice tops for the granddaughters – colorful and good for school. I don’t intend to do too much this coming week. Lunch with some friends and finish a book is about it.
A touch of the past – My parents had 26 fruit trees in the yard. There was almost every kind you could want. They even had the blue damson plums which ripen right about now. I haven’t had those in 35 years easily but the neighbor bought some and shared. OMG! I forgot how good they are. We also had apricot trees which are best picked soft and ripe. Anything else just isn’t good enough for me. Fresh, wonderful apples are starting now too.
And how was your week?
