No one told the cat school is out, it's summer break, and we get to sleep in an extra hour and a half.
Like clockwork she's in my face between 6:00 & 6:30 a.m. purring like a cement truck and putting her paw on my closed eyelid as if to say "open those". Now, you tell a dog to "git" and he understands and obeys. You throw the cat off the bed 10 times and she's right back in your face, poking your eyeball with her paw. Whip the pillow at her, she runs out, shut the door and she sits outside it yowling like she hasn't eaten in weeks and it sounds like a pitiful "OHHH NO. OHHH NO." Gonna have to sit her down for a talk and explain I guess.
Since I'm complaining, can I just say if you are going leave 5 pieces of coveted gourmet candy corn from a specialty fudge shop in the bag that was over half full last time I checked, you might as well torture me. "Oh cool! Five kernals left! THANKS, whoever ate the whole bag! Mighty kind of ya!" GEEESH.
Okay, I need some fresh air, let's take a peaceful walk in the yard. Looks like the monk is checking for rain, we could sure use it.
The hummers keep flying up to my dollar store whirly-gig. My husband keeps asking me to take it down because he feels guilty about disappointing the birds, but I like the colors against the brown, primitive stuff. A bird tried to make a nest in the wreath, but it didn't work. You can kindof see the moss & grass hanging down from it.
A little fairy used to live in the base of this tree when my daughter was little. All that's left is the front porch.
The blackberry bushes are full of blooms this year. Can't wait.
Zen in the trees. Ah. I feel better now.
I've been getting a lot of "message undeliverable/delayed" emails back when I try to respond to comments. I don't know why? WHY?! Does this ever happen to you? I am trying to respond to all comments, so I apologize if you haven't heard from me. I'm always so happy when you come for a visit!
