Ivy is at the storm door swishing her tail back and forth rapidly. That means she sees something out there she wants to get to.
Lately Ivy has become mesmerized by me flossing my teeth. I don’t know why she’s waited this long to take notice, because I floss my teeth all the time.
She sits and turns her head all the way one way, then reverses and turns it all the way to the other, watching closely. I’m sure you’ve seen pets do that when they are intensely looking at something.
Her eyes get wide and perplexed. I don’t know what that’s all about. It’s just Ivy I suppose.
This morning when I first got up (I slept in the recliner again) she was jumping up in the air for no reason. Then she’d twirl her tail around and run. Silly cat.
No Rain, Finally:
It is nice and sunny outside. It’s supposed to be about 67 degrees today. And no rain!
As much as I love the rain, we had days and days of it. Now things need to dry out for a bit.
I’m pretty much done adding things to the living room walls. For now at least. I ordered the painting above, which for some reason just called out to me, at Target.
I’d never bought artwork from Target before. But they have some good collections right now.
But I will tell you that they pack paintings better than any place I’ve ever ordered from. The individual paintings (I ordered two) were tightly wrapped in good thick bubble wrap.
Here’s the other one.
Even with the front door open I’m not getting much light shed on this side of the room, so it’s a little dark.
Doing all that last weekend, getting up on the step ladder to take all the paintings down that was on the gallery wall, led to where I am now.
And then getting back up there and hanging their replacements and thumb tacking the quilt on the wall behind the TV. I always get down and think: Hm, that one needs to go up or down a bit more. And thus I’m headed right back up the step ladder to fix it.
Sometimes I think that step ladder is my nemesis.
I think I’m getting a little bit better every day. Just trying to take it easy. Which is hard for me. I like to be able to do what I want to do. I’m the type who gets up to do something before I’ve given it any thought.
I even walked down to the dumpster with an empty box. Though I walked stiffly, trying not to jar any nerve pain into action.
Charlie Sprawled Out On The Couch:
Here’s a Saturday morning photo of Charlie sprawled out on the couch. He loves this thick red Sherpa blanket.
Shipt Order & Delivery:
I ordered a Shipt grocery order Thursday to be delivered yesterday morning. The woman who was shopping for me called once to ask about a substitute.
I asked her to call me when she’d put the groceries on the porch. But she didn’t. It had been some time, so I called her mobile. She didn’t answer.
The lawn guys were out there so I thought I’d better look. And there were my groceries. The refrigerated items were still cold. But I was aggravated that she didn’t call as I’d asked.
No telling how long they’d been sitting there because I was waiting on her phone call. And I gave her a decent tip too.
I didn’t use Instacart because it doesn’t include my grocery store here in Tulsa.
