Step away from that newsletter! – I received a flyer from the rescue where I adopted one of my one-eyed cats. Midsummer they rescued 12 kittens. Eight of the kittens required the removal of an eye because of severe infections. One kitten was so ill they had to humanely euthanize her. The newsletter had pictures. Three have already been adopted. The beloved husband said I cannot rescue all one-eyed cats. Sigh. There isn’t a homely cat in the bunch. Here’s hoping they find good homes. Adopt a one-eye!
I’m a princess – I have my quirks. (Many quirks!) Soft bedding and towels are one of them. I replace my towels more frequently than most people. I bought super-duper (that means expensive) flannel sheets two years ago from a reputable national brand. I put them on the bed last weekend for the winter season. It was like sleeping on sandpaper. I don’t like to exfoliate in my sleep! They are in the donate pile, replaced by lovely soft floofy ones.
Exactly what does creative mean? – A good thing? Or is it? I don’t like to see it in front of the word chef. I like different approaches to a recipe but tossing everything but the kitchen sink together does not make a tasty or creative entrée. I had dinner at one such restaurant this week and more than one of us was disappointed. What happened to Keep It Simple Stupid?
Multitasking – We all think we can do it but we can’t. If I need to go to another room for one thing, I plan to do two other things too. Makes sense, right? Kill three birds with one trip? Wrong! Here is what happens — I go into the other room; do something totally different; and forget what I really needed. Am I alone here? (Yes, I am aware of the theory that walking through a doorway reboots your brain. Not only does mine do a reboot but it deletes!)
Eyeglass update – I posted earlier this week about purchasing new eyeglasses (click here). I was struggling between two pair, one from a local optician and one from a big box eyeglass store. The big box pair was less than half the cost of the optician’s, but I liked the optician’s a little better. After a few visits (and a little fondling), I went with the economical pair. Since it’s a rimless frame, both are identical from the front. I can’t see the side detail and my hair obstructs most of it. My mother would be so proud. In my head (but not my pocketbook) I now have a few hundred dollars to spend!
So how was your week? Perhaps you can share a quirk?
