I’m late posting today because somehow my camera configuration or the files they get downloaded to somehow got messed up. I couldn’t figure out which one it was, so for hours I sat here agitated trying this and that trying to fix it.
I know just enough to download my photos into folders but not enough to understand all the folders the photos go into. Somehow it was in video mode and kept saying it couldn’t find the video.
I won’t bore you with more of that because it was just a mess that I don’t know how I got into. But now I’ve managed to fix it.
At any rate, I couldn’t transfer today’s photos from my camera to this computer.
I find it funny that Ivy has taught me to fetch. She brings her swirly toy to me and stands there waiting for me to throw it. Then she runs after it, lumbering along like the big cat she is. But boy can she will give it all she’s got!
Oddly enough I was never able to teach Charlie and Abi how to fetch. I never got them past me throwing a ball and them running to it.
But instead of picking it up in their mouth and bringing it back to me, they would run up to it and then turn around and run back to me without it.
Then Ivy figures it all out all by herself.
See all that cat food above? It arrived yesterday from Chewys. I already had one full sack of cat food and ordered more because oftentimes these days I go to order something and it either is out of stock or takes two weeks to get here due to the coronavirus mess.
But the question is: how did I manage to order this many sacks of cat food? That certainly was not my intention.
Well, I don’t know. It is a mystery. But Ivy has plenty of cat food for the near future.
I have ordered a cord cover for the fountain cord that will rest against the wall and go up to the light socket. So I won’t be trying to get all that fixed up until it gets here, which seems to indicate a week from now from the email Amazon sent me.
It has been raining with such ferocity that I just feel it’s best to cover the cord going to the fountain. Though it is up against the other side of the French doors under the wide overhang of the roof, water is still soaking it when it rains.
So I’ve left the fountain turned off for now.
Because Charlie can no longer raise his legs high enough to get into the blue container bed to do his business, I carved out a spot for him behind the wicker settee.
I took bricks and enclosed a small area with dirt and sedum and lemon balm.
However the last two days when the rain is pouring down my patio has stood in probably four inches of water and the water doesn’t seem to be flowing anywhere. Poor Charlie has had to go outside and slosh through the rain water until the rain stops.
So this morning I got out there and figured out that my next door neighbor’s patio has a cement enclosure that was impeding the water from flowing out. So I had to dig out the dirt and bricks and rearrange the space for him.
My garden is looking so pretty when I stare out the French doors. I see a sea of white and yellow and shades of purple.
