There’s never a dull moment around here.
Nathan said he was out digging holes in the rain all night with a plumber looking for that spot they have to look for. I’m blocking on what it’s called. They found fabric in there. Shut a whole four unit apartment dwelling down.
Who on earth is stupid enough to flush fabric down a toilet? People surprise me with their idiocy. Or maybe it’s just thoughtlessness.
Some old man recently kept flushing his cigarettes and paper towels down the toilet and they finally had to replace the whole toilet. I think they made him pay for it.
How can people be so thoughtless and lazy?
Before 10 p.m. last night Nathan was over here on our unit because I called him. I could hear people shouting down a ways on the other side. Seemed a couple with a baby were having a big fight.
When he confronted them they told him they were just playing with the baby. If they were playing with their baby, then what I heard them yelling could be considered child abuse.
Some people truly need a license to procreate.
I kept hearing: “I hate you, I hate you.” And I heard lots of things I won’t sully this post with. Mean things being screamed at one another so loud I could hear the words hundreds of feet away.
Thank goodness everyone on my row are single older women. We are proud of our status. I refer to us as granny row.
I’m supposed to be seeing my ankle surgeon this afternoon. But I’ve felt pretty good today. I don’t even have the boot on. Maybe I’ll go in just to be on the safe side. Not sure yet. I truly don’t want anything interfering with spring planting.
Ivy is sticking her front paw underneath a couch cushion. Just checking it out. That cat misses nothing and has to know everything. Front, back and center. She has to be the most curious creature I’ve ever run across.
Meanwhile Charlie is in the puffy recliner with me snoozing away. He looks like a swaddled baby in his spot between me and the chair arm. Tongue sticking out, living the good life on a soft padded chair by his mama.
The leaves on the tree hanging over my fence look so pretty from where I sit. They sure are greening up fast. And so is Jade, my little container butterfly tree. This is Jade’s second summer on my patio.
I’ve never arrived at spring with so many plants still alive in my containers. And we had one cold winter!
But that means I can just focus on a few herbs and veggies and some annuals to look pretty.
You get a lot of mileage out of petunias. Also sweet potato vine. You more than get your money out of fast growing sweet potato vines.
Charlie is now on the couch and Ivy is with me in the recliner. These funny, funny fur babies and their daily antics.
Last night at supper time I was pretty tired. That boot is heavy and rubs against my leg.
I looked in the fridge. What I came up with for supper was two frozen veggie egg rolls smeared with a little packet of Chick Filet sauce I found in there. Wasn’t all that great, but it was edible.
It’s so quiet. Just the rain softly coming down. I love mornings like this. I can stare out the French doors and feel so at peace. My babies are right here with me and all is well with the world.
Tomorrow I’m changing things up a bit. I’ve had readers writing me telling me about remarkable women who have faced or are stilling facing a lot of obstacles. So I’m starting a new series to intersperse with the other two.
It will be called Stories Of Real Women Facing Hardship.
If you know of a woman who fits this criteria, please email me their story. I change names to protect their privacy.
Tomorrow I’ll roll out the first one. Then if you want to go back to having a discussion next week, let me know what you’d like to discuss.
I can now hear Ivy somewhere in the bedroom doing something that’s making noise. I’d better push the button down on my power chair and see what that cat is into now.
Well, before I could get up, Ivy came in here. Now both she and Charlie are resting in the new chair side by side and Ivy is licking in his right ear.
Uh-oh, Charlie has grown tired of her messing with his ear and snapped at her and she headed over to the couch out of harm’s way. It’s not like he could bite her or anything. But when he has had enough he lets her know about it.
Truly never a dull moment.
