Tried out my new found Tide on a load of sheets. While I found the scent still a little too perfumey for my taste, Willow let me know that she enjoys it and that I am welcome to wash her things in it any time. I had to chase her off so I could get the sheets folded.View attachment 335967
susanm9006 susanm9006 I hate smell of perfume. Better to leave real scent in garden flowers, roses~IMHO. 🌺 :silver: 🌹 🌻🌷

She's adorable!! Is she a plus sized baby girl? :redheartpump: I love her coloring, nose, just all of her. You are such a good mama to buy Gain just for her.:hugs: Kaylee bought Tide Clean Breeze scent, loved the smell but it made me itch so back to regular.
Yes, definitely plus sized. She has been on a diet for years. 1/4 cup measured dry kibble for breakfast and 1.3 oz wet food in the afternoon but she is still as plump as could be. If I didn’t live alone I would swear someone else was feeding her!

Over the top heat, no worries, ac is on. I was out for a bit yesterday, hadn't been drinking anything,
came back in and had to drink a glass of water and a glass of pineapple juice to get hydrated again.
Will keep ac low so it doesn't have to work so hard when it reaches the high 80s today. Hope to sit
out for a bit before it gets hot.

That's why I drink before I get thirsty now. It's an odd concept, but they say that when you get thirsty, you're already dehydrated.

My positive is that we placed our Aldi order for Friday last night. I got some fun stuff-- Coconut Chia Granola, Alfredo Sauce, Coconut Milk, Vanilla Soy Milk, Spaghetti, Flame Grilled Veggie Burgers. They got a bunch of other stuff too, but this is what I requested. :thumbsup:

After spending two months in the hospital and senior care center my mom, who just turned 91, is being discharged today. Of course they advised a nursing home but she is stubborn and refused. I am thankful though that she made it through without picking up COVID and she will be back where she wants to be.

When DH and I were driving to run an errand today we noticed something in the street - to our surprise it was a large turtle. We didn't want a car to hit or run over the turtle so we pulled over and got out of the car, DH picked the turtle up and walked to a nearby pond where he put him on the grass. We named him Donatello after the Ninja Turtle. 🐢

Where my cats are
:loveeyes: 🐢

DH keeps having to rescue frogs outside our house lately. One hopped into the garage on me when I was moving my flooded flower planters. They are welcome to come eat all the mosquitoes they desire here! And other bugs of course!

I just got 2 levels of the DVD art program I use with my kids for the price of 1! :yess: I'm slowly going through school stuff today. I've got a list of what I need and have already bought for next school year going. It really helps save some money!

Supposed to be somewhat cooler today.....looking forward to Sunday with all day sunshine
temps low-mid 60s, 40s at night Seems we don't have spring anymore, cold to hot. Yesterday
spent some time outside but was hot by 8:00am..been drinking a lot of pineapple juice and
water with lime and a few splashes of grenadine. Craving homemade lemonade.

Cal goes out in am but it's too hot for her now so she only sits on deck for a bit., eats grass then wants
to come back in. She's sleeping, snorting, and cooing and mewing, gorgeous girl.💞

Dang! Did you fall in love with him all over again watching him do that? I would be like...swoon.😍

I know. I went from freezing to sunburnt the next day. 😮


My positive is my oldest brother sent me a FitBit & a digital music player! Here's the sweet notes he had Amazon attach: ❤

"Now you can count your steps. From Your Big Brother"

"Something for listening to all that great music dad downloads for you while you walk. Much Love, From Your Big Brother

We're both huge animal lovers and have stopped on the road before when we saw a lost or injured animal. However, I was very proud of him. :touched:

I had planned to get my annuals over the Memorial holiday weekend but they were sold out of geraniums, my favorite flower for planters on the patio. They said they expect to get more in today or tomorrow so :crossfingers: they will have a new supply today since we're expecting thunderstorms tomorrow.

Remy has taken to Flora very well. I'm actually very surprised because I thought he'd have the hardest time dealing with a new sibling. Maisie is another story. She's been very angry about it. Last night I had Flora and Remy in my bedroom all night, letting Maisie have the rest of the house to herself, and they were great with each other!

Poor Maisie, feeling put out. Maybe give her some extra kisses💖 It'll all work out

Finally, rain although the humidity is unbearable but the central ac is taking care of that.
Rain means no sprogs outside with their awful high pitched screaming. I have a good book
to finish and more. Kaylee is all smiles lately as she has a new girl in her life. Very pretty,
hard worker, getting her mechanic's license very soon. I'm happy for her.

My supervisor forwarded me an email from a high maintenance researcher earlier this week. The researcher basically said I did a great job at managing her project :biggrin: My supervisor added her own positive comments as well :blush: The email was also forwarded to management so they're all aware of it. It nice to have the work I do be acknowledged and appreciated 🤗
