Starbucks – My favorite coffee retailer has come out with a new size for frappuccinos – mini. It’s 10 ounces. I have been begging them to make a 24 ounce size hot coffee. (Seriously, I’ve written them many times about that!) That would equal 3 cups of coffee which is a nice amount to drink in the morning. Instead they came out with a mini for cold drinks. Bleah!
Cruising – I added three floating plants in my pond this week. They float in the deep part all day but something happens overnight. Every morning they are in the shallow part. I am concerned because that would put them in reach of a thirsty groundhog who would find them tasty. Today the mystery was solved. Usually when I am out the fish are hovering around me (hoping that I will feed them). I was cleaning up a project so they got used to me and went back to doing what they normally do. What they normally do is use the plant as a float. A group of them will swim and push it down to the shallow end while nibbling on the roots. The little buggers!
Speaking of my pond – If you read my earlier post you will know that I have been on a death watch for my tropical water-lily. I lost the original three big leaves but that’s not unusual after a transplant. So far it’s hanging in there. I even had one of the buds open.
Odd habits of cats – I’ve noticed this before but only with Morgan. She will not let me touch her until she gives my hands a thorough smelling. It could take a minute or two. She will even smell between the fingers. If the smell isn’t up to her standards, her hind feet will kick my hand away. She secretly wishes that I was a butcher with meat smell (instead of a retired person with Starbucks smell).
A good tired – I’ve been working on outdoor projects this week. It’s so great to work outside and enjoy the wonderful weather. We are blessed that neither of us have allergies which are bad this year. There is a thick coat of pollen everywhere.
So how was your week?
