Where is everyone? – Everyone seems to have disappeared. Maybe vacation? Even Starbucks isn’t crowded. Bloggers, shoppers, friends are all on hiatus! There is something I like about that (at least the Starbucks part) but it also feels like something is missing (maybe me not being on vacation!).
Woo hoo! – I received a note from Amazon. I have been awarded $1.57 from the Apple lawsuit. The beloved husband got $22.30. So exciting! Almost like winning the lottery!
Velcro cat – Morgan (my youngest cat) had her annual exam with shots this week. She’s very easy to crate and loves the attention at the vet. After the visit she stuck by me like Velcro. She’s all huggy-feely. I like it but it won’t last. I wonder if the crate brings back memories of the shelter.
You never know – One of our friends was hospitalized this week. He had severe pain and they weren’t sure if it was a heart or lung issue. His heart checked out ok but they haven’t found the cause of the pain yet. He’s an upbeat virile (up until now) healthy guy. We have friends who are much more likely to have health issues. It brought all of us down to earth. You never know what tomorrow will bring. Love what you are doing today.
Garden update – I live next to an animal preserve with lots and lots of critters. My garden has a 6’ fence around it. After 13 years of that working, I found a groundhog inside. He got in leisurely but when he saw me he panicked and had trouble getting out. He was stuck in the fence and there was a moment I thought I would have to help him. He managed to wiggle out the 2” x 2” square. He was young and small but still a good size. I couldn’t believe he could do it. (And yes, it was a male. While he was stuck I saw his man bits dangling. He could have used a jock strap.) He ate my cucumber plant. Boogers.
So how was your week?
Editor’s note: I corrected the beloved husband’s Apple refund after I posted. Whoops!
