This month has totally gotten away from me. What with cooler temps and yard work to falling pecans to I-don’t-know-what-else, by the time I’ve reached a point of sitting at my computer, I’m too tired to think.
Today is National Cat Day. The Demon Duo must know because they’ve been just a little more trying (annoying, tiresome, irritating, wearisome) than usual. According to the National Cat Day website, the best way you can celebrate is to save a life! So, ADOPT, don't shop. Estimates reveal that there are approximately 4 million cats entering shelters every year with 1-2 million being euthanized. They go further to say cats help lower blood pressure of their human roommates, offer love and companionship, tons of laughs and can alert owners to danger (the duo does that by peeling off down the hallway if someone they don’t know comes into the house). Sadly, however, there are many humans out there that live under a veil of lies; lies that say humans are superior. (hahahahahahahahahaha – snort, giggle - haha).
Daryl and Zack then
A friend sent me this recently – so just in case you don’t know the ownership rules, here they are –
Sooooo – check, check, check, check and yes, up at 530am to fix breakfast!
This past Saturday was a special day. My youngest daughter got married. They decided on a simple ceremony on the beach in Galveston. And, while the day was sunny and bright, it was very chilly with a 20mph wind blowing out of the north. Still, my daughter looked beautiful, the beach was pretty, and there were no miscellaneous gawkers or screaming kiddos around.
In our “fall days”, we are currently in a warm stage (chilly, cool, warm, warm, very warm, chilly, repeat). I think there is another cold front coming in tomorrow or Thursday. That’s fine – I’m tired of summer now. And, this weekend, we go off Daylight Savings Time. That’s good too. I’m a morning person. I hate it when I’m up a couple hours before the sun.
Yesterday I wrote three letters – well, I typed up three letters – I don’t actually write, like with a pen and paper, too much anymore. Still, I wrote three letters and emailed them off. And, then I looked over toward the front windows to see three people in MY front yard, picking up MY pecans as fast as they could. Aaarrrgggh!!! What’s wrong with people?? I did open the front door. Can I HELP you?? Oh, they were just picking up pecans (duh). Did they realize they were on private property? Oh, do you want us to put them back? They did drop a couple hands full back to the ground out of a BULGING bag. Then they walked on down the street.
Good thing I have two kitties, I think my blood pressure was fallout out of my ears.
