I woke up to the sound of rain this morning. It is overcast outside and not too steamy out yet.
I haven’t checked the weather so I don’t know what kind of temps we’re in for today. But yesterday was horrid.
When it’s summer I want fall weather. When it’s winter I want spring. Not fond of summer at all. I like fall and spring.
Last night I watched another episode of “Wanted.” Now it seems the guy who stole the gun from them, the one Chelsea was attracted to in the bar and took to their room, is on the run with them.
That’s one complicated relationship.
Lola/Lillian has flown David in and he told her the people who killed their friend took his money. When actually David is a gambler and lost it. The boy couldn’t keep money in his pocket if his life depended on it.
I’ve never understood gamblers. But then there are all sorts of addictions.
Then I read a book. I like to end the evening reading.
Ivy was a little stinker yesterday. Got into everything. Begged me to pet her then when I didn’t do it just right she bit me. She never bites me hard. Just a kitten-ish bite I suppose.
There are certain things she will do that she isn’t supposed to and I grab the water bottle sprayer out of the container of house plants. She loves water but has decided she doesn’t like getting sprayed with it.
It always surprises me how fast she knows an insect is inside. She’s merciless with flies. She pounces on those flies with everything she’s got.
And Charlie thanks her for the effort. They terrify him.
I can tell she wants Charlie to play with her, but he isn’t interested.
The look on Ivy’s face when Charlie snaps at her is priceless. She pulls her head slightly back and just stares at him. Like she’s thinking: “Well, you old fuddy-duddy.”
When I’m making the bed in the morning Ivy comes running and jumps in the big middle of it like she’s jumping in a pile of autumn leaves.
My daughter said Andrew starts school next week. I asked her if she was going to buy him a bullet proof backpack. I read that the sale of them has gone up about 300%.
Do you suppose they come with any kind of instructions?
I’m just glad my children are grown. We didn’t have to deal with the proliferation of cell phones and the internet and all the stuff going on now.
It was a kinder world then.
