An early brunch – January has been six degrees warmer than normal. Very unusual. This week I saw a chipmunk looking for sunflower seeds around the bird feeders. It’s early to see them out of hibernation and I haven’t seen it again. Maybe it was just a midnight snack. Next week is Groundhog Day. Damn rodent better not see his shadow!
Picking the right color – I have always wanted to match carpet color to the cats. Easy cleanup and no visible cat hair. We had new stair carpet installed last week. Cats like new stuff. They like to christen it. Almost immediately. Within three days someone barfed on it. The barf matched perfectly. (With the proper diet, barf is a warm neutral shade.) Win-win!
More like Mom everyday – On my last shopping trip I bought a new nightgown (which I didn’t need). When I put it in my drawer, I realized that I’m a lot like my mother. When she died, she had almost as much night clothes as she did day clothes. She had gowns that were still in packages, brand new. It must run in the family. Some families are afraid they will run out of food. We are afraid we will run out of night clothes.
Bargains – When my SIL broke her arm at the shoulder, she told everyone to not buy her cards. They are expensive and would get thrown out anyway. I had to buy a card this week and found one for 99 cents at a card store. You just need to look.
Gah – They have started political ads for our local mayoral race. *bangs head on table* I haven’t recovered from the last one yet.
So how was your week?
