I went out yesterday to run errands and thought I was going to faint in the heat. My word, it’s hot and damp and awful. I hate the heat. Give me a cold day and I’ll curl up in a quilt.
I went to the grocery store. They have a little restaurant in there and I decided to have a meal first. I needed sustenance before shopping and then going out to brave the heat again.
I had meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Sure was good.
Charlie has acupuncture at 9:45. His appointment was at noon, but I called them and said I was taking an antibiotic that made me feel sick in the heat, so they switched it.
I came home to find that Ivy had dug a little bit of dirt out of my prayer plant. It’s possible for her to barely reach it but she didn’t do much damage. I don’t worry about her with this plant because it is not toxic to animals.
And then as I was putting groceries away I saw her pawing at the top of one of the new air purifiers that is in the living room. (The other one is in the bedroom). She was pawing at it like she does when she can’t get to one of her toys.
I sure hope she didn’t put one of her toys in there. But she loves to get a toy like one of her plastic swirlies and place them somewhere, then play with it. For instance she will get one in her mouth and place it on the coffee table. Then bat it around.
Maybe she’s just interested in the cool air that comes out the top of the air purifier. It blows her fur back and she looks kind of like a dog with its head stuck out the car window. She seems to like it.
Last night just before bed I heard this scratching noise. I paused to get my bearings on where it was coming from. I quickly realized it was Charlie scratching the floor.
Whenever he sees a flying insect that’s what he does. He hides in some corner under something and furiously scratches the floor like he’s trying to dig a hole to China.
I let him be. I knew that before long Ivy would figure out there was a bug inside and she’d get it.
Sometimes I see her kill it and eat it. If it isn’t all the way dead when she picks it up with her mouth, she will bat it around on the floor till it’s still.
Then she eats it. I sure hope it’s protein. Hate to think of her eating a bug for nothing.
There were some things I read this week that I thought might interest you.
