Mouse update – I so wanted to tell you that the mouse problem is resolved. We went two weeks without a sighting. There were high fives all around. ‘Niptinis were served (margaritas for the humans). Then…Morgan went crazy. We had a rolled up carpet and I could tell by her “interest” that something was in it. I diligently took it outside to unroll and there was a mouse wondering what the heck happened to his new cozy home. We are still confident that the new electronic thingies are working. There is always a “rogue” mouse that defies the odds. In the meantime, Morgan is working on her “high five.” Needs a lot of work! (PS: We are now in day 5 of mouselessness.)
The nesting instinct – That’s me, not a mouse! A cool weather front came in and blew out a heat wave that’s been hovering with temperatures 15 to 20 degrees above normal. With the change came renewed energy. I’ve felt like cooking and stocking the larder. Doesn’t happen often so I took advantage of it. Chili and soups in the freezer.
Changes in weather – When I was in grade school, the nuns always said they could tell when the weather changed because the kids got “active.” The same thing is true of my catkid Gracie. She wants to play. All. The. Time. Only with me. I never had such an insistent (or whiny) cat! I’m just grateful she’s healthy and happy.
Gym update – I’m at a new gym with upgraded equipment. One of my colleagues who also transferred was exercising at the same time. I followed her on a piece of equipment and was stunned to see she had adjusted the equipment to 30 pounds of resistance. Our old gym did not have much resistance at all so this was quite an upgrade. Oh yes, she’s 87. It would have been embarrassing to lower it to 15 pounds so I soldiered on (in complete awe of her).
So how was your week?
