I'm at work but I'm considering bugging out early today so I won't be on the road during the worst of it.Under a flash flood watch. Still have us in the 3 to 6 inch rain range, although we're pretty much on the lower side of that. We're staying home and I'll be on the couch with a couple of good books and a few cats. It's a good day for reading. Those of you who have to travel today, be careful! Might be a good idea to stay home, klunick .
Rick's mom's nursing is, ONCE AGAIN, closed. Yet another un-vaccinated employee tested positive for Covid. We're back to window visits with a telephone only. I'm so angry at the stupidity I could spit.
I met my new furry niece and nephew last night. My sister and BIL found Wyatt, a little orange boy, about 50 feet up in a tree. They asked the fire dept to bring the bucket and get him down, but the dept refused. They contacted a tree service and they did come out; they had to pay for the service, of course. Got him down, took him to the vet and he's no worse for wear. He's about 4 months old give or take. I'd take him in a heartbeat, but when I went to visit last night, Rick warned me before I left that I'd better be coming home alone. One of my sister's neighbors found Sophia, a little white girl with brown spots, in her back yard. Called my sister, she went over and brought Sophia home. She's only about five weeks old and the neighbor had no idea where her mama was or any siblings. She has a vet appt on Oct 8, the earliest they could get her in. Sophia and Wyatt are staying in their enclosed back porch in separate cages. It was hard to leave without stealing Wyatt. They now have nine cats, all indoors. And did I mention that Wyatt is simply gorgeous?!
I came home last night, washed up very well, and changed my clothes because I did handle the kittens. And still, Molli knew. She gave me a sniff, her eyes got big, and she turned around and walked away. She didn't sleep with me last night either, for the first time in a very long time. She was angry. This morning, all is forgiven though. After all, I'm the feeder person! She's on my lap as I type. Another reason to keep to the cats we have now. I learned my lesson after bringing Muffin into the house.
- I've been up since 3:30. Amber has been a real PITB this morning. The caterwauling is ridiculous. She got the other girls up, so I gave up and got out of bed. They've all had breakfast, I'm on my second cup of coffee (it might be a multi-cup day!), and I just took a load of laundry out of the washer and threw it in the dryer. (I changed bed sheets yesterday, but didn't launder anything, so am working on a bit of laundry now.)
- Chili is in the crock pot
- I want to organize a couple bathroom cabinets and drawers this afternoon. There has to be a better way.
- There just might be a nap in the next few hours. Two cups of coffee and I'm still
