Happy father’s day! –The beloved husband said he wasn’t a practicing father anymore as all his children are grown and living far away. I asked if he was a recovering father and he laughed. Congrats to all you Dads out there.
Saturday mornings – I hate weekends. Monday is the best because it’s quiet. Everyone is back at work and the lawn guys aren’t around yet. Saturdays are the noisiest day of the week here. Lawn guys and contractors start around 7 a.m. with LOUD equipment. There is never any sleeping in.
V-E-T trip – Morgan’s annual checkup was this week and I was reminded how easy she is. She doesn’t hide and there are no shenanigans leading up to the visit. The carrier is out in clear sight. At the appointed time I pick her up and put her in and off we go. This trip she cried all the way there. That’s a first. Normally she just hunkers down for a new adventure. She got her shots (and didn’t get sick or feverish) and was off and running again. For the trip home she was all smiles and quiet in the back seat. No doubt she was happy that it was over and it ended with coming home.
The furniture – For those of you who read my post about the new furniture (see here and here) I said that the cats had not sat on it after five days. The consensus was that Morgan would be the first. So wrong! It was Hazel who decided to take a nap. No one else has ventured on the soft cushions. It has to be the new smell. Nothing else keeps them off of furniture. Certainly not me telling them to get off.
Silly critters – I love day lilies and planted a lot of them when I moved here. The deer ate all the red buds. I never saw them bloom. After 12 years I pulled the red ones out and gave them away. This past week, in the middle of my yellow lily patch there was one red volunteer blooming its heart out. Maybe it is protected by the yellow ones. A bird or squirrel or something must have planted a seed.
So how was your week?
