Dirty laundry – It started early this year. People letting their dirty laundry out on the lawn. Driving past at night you will find inflatable pumpkins, witches and whatnot but during the day, it’s all dirty laundry littering the yards.
Life happens – Starting several years ago, a group of girlfriends made a pact to get together for dinner once a month. It was an outgrowth of a smaller group that got together periodically for a mudslide (boozy ice cream drink) starting 15 years ago. Friends were added and others left. Now we are five. Some months get hectic and the group is smaller. It is still great to keep connected through all sorts of life changes. We’ve outgrown the mudslides and select more mature (?) drinks these days.
WordPress (sigh!) – For you non-bloggers out there WordPress is the platform I use to post my stories. It’s a wonderful site and mostly free (unless you add fancy stuff). The little prepubescent wizards that work there continually update and keep us current. That is not without pain. This week I lost the number count on my Reader page. That means when I am looking at other bloggers’ post titles I have no idea if it’s short or long. I complained when they put the reading time there (and I apologize for complaining) but please give me my number count back? I will sent you some chocolates! K?
Velcro – I’m not sure what’s up but lately my young cat Morgan is attached to me with Velcro. No matter where I am, she is nearby — sometimes on top of me, other times on top of whatever I’m trying to do. In a way it’s nice. I feel wanted and loved. However, I do like to use the potty and take a shower by myself without someone staring at me. The good news about cats is that there is no judgement. She’s cool with the fact that I only put tanner up to my knees and my skin is a little floppy.
Gearing for frost – We are expecting our first frost this weekend. We have been flirting with above average temperatures for the past few weeks but our luck is running out. Since we have already prepped our yard for winter, there is nothing to do except perhaps start the fireplace. Each season has its perks.
So how was your week?
