Yeppers – Friday approacheth! This is our last chance before the last day of the week to get something constructive done so we can say “gosh this has been a busy week”. Well, to be truthful it kinda has been. Mom had a little “whoopsie” with the garage door and the car (we won’t talk about that though), I did a lot of STUFF in preparation for the weekend’s activities at Cat Scouts, Mom read TWO books, Dad went flying………….see? Busy week.
Today I help Mom do laundry. “Help” is purrrhaps not the right word……….I do more “observing/snoopervising” than actually helping. I mean how can a small cat drag sheets down two flights of stairs to the laundry room? Can’t be done by THIS cat…..so I’ll watch and snoop.
July is usually a very hot and steamy month here but just as most of you have reported, our weather here has been nothing short of WEIRD for weeks on end. In the 60s one day, in the 90s the next……….driving rain or steamy humidity and sun……..but it is what it is………and we have A/C and a shady front porch and woods. We can’t complain (well, I can complain but my parents can’t).
Today I can hear about 87 mowers mowing all around the community. We’re getting good at recognizing who we can hear – different mowers make different sounds………”Oh, Pete’s got his zero radius out” or “Warren sure can zip that John Deere around his yard like a race car!”……………I think everyone is mowing because they know we’re supposed to have more rain coming. That usually gets people fired up. We’re gonna wait. Mom mowed Sunday and it’s only Wednesday – by Friday we won’t be able to see out the windows because the grass will be that high. Fine with me….you know I love to eat the stuff – I’m part goat.
Hope you’re not TOO hot where you are – Europe is frying and the USA out West is just about doing the same……….maybe they should change the term to “GLOBAL FRYING” instead of “GLOBAL WARMING” ???
