What’s that smell? – Humidity brings out the stink. It intensifies odors. I have a great nose. I can smell things no one else can. Perhaps it’s to compensate for my lousy vision. Sometimes it’s a blessing (I can smell gas leaks no one else can) but sometimes not. Like right now. It’s hot and humid. Everything stinks. I’m trying to keep my distance from people and aging fruits and vegetables!
Speaking of fruit – This is a great year for local fruit. With the exception of strawberries everything has been sweet. Peaches are great as were most of the berries, cherries, plums and more. I love local fruit!
One down and one to go – We usually plan house projects for the summertime. This past week we painted our bathroom (which we have been planning for two years – old people move slow). I love to paint. You can’t beat instant gratification (especially when you are old! Tick, tock.). I painted over the wrong shade of light tan with the right shade. Tans are funny colors. Some have pink tones and some yellow. It’s easy to pick the wrong one.
For Facebook followers – More change. They will no longer allow WordPress (my blogging platform) to post automatically to my FB page. If you follow me on Facebook you may not see my posts. This change is effective August 1 and (due to my level of tech savvy) I’m not sure how it will play out. I will see if I can post it manually. I post three times a week – Sunday, Wednesday (or Thursday if I’m lazy) and Sassy Cats on Fridays. You can follow me on my blog and get an email alert when I post.
The cats love library books – They have unusual smells to them. I brought four books home two weeks ago. I read three and nothing happened. I started the fourth and there were cats all over me. They tried rolling in the book and grabbing it out of my hands. (There is a bite mark on page 53 but don’t report me to the library police!) I checked it for traces of weed (catnip of course!). Whoever had it before must have had a pet. (I came full circle – start with smells and end with smells!)
So how was your week?
