The talking weather torsos are calling for some noise later. I'll believe it when I see it.
I introduced you to Mrs Kravitz in my last post. I fear I have become Mrs. Kravitz. Well, not exactly, as she's in black and white and I'm in color but I when I'm home I find myself walking to the window and admiring the view.
To those on the outside, I may look like a nosy neighbor, craving excitement from behind the mullions.
Why am I gazing outside?
I like the little birdies and my fat squirrel that soak themselves in the birdbath. The squirrel camped out there one hot afternoon, resting on the wet spot waiting for me to refill the bath. The birds fight over their turn in the water. Silly things.
I'm also hopeful that Cat, that crazy hair-throwing beastard, will come back. He's been missing since Monday morning when he didn't appear to be let inside. Clumps of fur were in the front yard but I can't locate the rest of him.
Although we know there are coyotes around, our cat has always managed to hide from them. We also have owls. YEE-OUCH! It would take a rather large owl to haul off my 15-pound beast, though.
He has "left" before only to return a few days later, ready to eat and take a long nap.
Sigh. Sometimes there isn't much "domestic" in this cat.
I certainly don't sit around all day staring outside. I sometimes do it from an upright position.
Seriously, I'm in a bit of a holding pattern. My mom has had some additional issues that need to be cleared up before she can have her shoulder surgery so I have not made any additional summer plans outside of my normal teaching schedule (my Yoga and Pilates classes).
I had to contain Evil Twin yesterday.
Doesn't it annoy you when you need something and the person you asked responds with a forced smile and a mouthful of brush-off instructions when all they had to do was spend one minute getting you what you need? Sometimes people make it obvious that you aren't worth their time. I felt like the splashed dirt at the bottom of the totem pole.
I smiled, said "thank you" and walked away. I came back later, asked someone else, got what I needed and was gone in 30 seconds.
Unfortunately, I can look back and see myself behaving that way. Sheesh. Payback is a bee-otch!
Oh, who am I kidding? I'm perfect, right?
Happy Hump Day! Do a rain dance for me, please.
