I went out to water some of the patio plants this morning and it was already 100 degrees in the shade before 9 a.m. I don’t think I even want to know what the humidity level is.
Ivy was in an especially mischievous mood yesterday. When I got up she had unspooled all the toilet paper. I just rolled it back up. I’m not wasting toilet paper because it is expensive like most things now.
I know she has somehow gotten to the stones I bought at Spiritual Rose. I had five and now there are four. And I still haven’t found my watch yet.
A bit ago I dumped out all her toys from the red tub to see if my things might be in there. They weren’t, but I took that opportunity to wash the dusty tub.
Ivy was quite perturbed that I dumped her toys out on the table and washed the tub. Maybe she felt like I do when she drags off my things.
After I dried the tub and put everything back, she started making this weird noise. Not really cat-like. I guess she was expressing her displeasure at my daring to mess with her tub of toys and finds.
Oh, Ivy has so many hidden talents.
Yesterday I was going through my craft supplies. I brought my old yellow pantry (or what I used as a pantry) into the living room and began putting my boho type supplies in there so I wouldn’t have to go through all my craft supplies in the big cupboard to get to them.
I have plans to make various boho crafts in the near future. So I brought the plastic boxes I store craft supplies in into the living room and sat on the floor going through them. Of course that was like fresh catnip to Ivy.
I gave her some things I didn’t want and hoped she’d go away and leave me alone. But that was not on her agenda. She wanted to know personally everything that was in those boxes. I quickly put away the needles, the only thing she could hurt herself with.
We both dug through the boxes. She found some yarn and got away with it and yanked it loose before I could catch her. No harm really. The problem is when she covertly takes something and I don’t see her do it. Then I’ll be wondering who lost it, me or Ivy.
But then cats are nothing if not curious beings. Who wants to stifle that part of her personality? Certainly not me.
Thursday evening I called in an order of chicken nachos around the corner at a local Mexican restaurant I only recently checked out. I believe those were the best chicken nachos I’ve ever eaten. For less than $10, I had a full meal for two suppers.
They were not skimpy on their order either. They added a good sized container of guacamole, shredded lettuce with tomatoes, and sour cream. They also added a bag of fresh tortilla chips.
Last night when I finished it off, the tortilla chips tasted just as good. But then I had put them in a zipped baggie to store them for the following day.
I’ll have to do that again. Driving in the heat isn’t bad when you’re only going the equivalent of a block or so. I took the side road and never even got onto a main road. So there was no traffic to deal with.
Last night I finished “Deep Waters” on Netflix, set in Australia. I believe it was only 4 episodes. I shall begin another series tonight. After that I read on my Kindle.
Weekends are really no different from week days to me. I like to spend them relaxed in my little home with the pet babies, enjoying the cool air inside and reading or watching Netflix.
This weekend will be no different. I have no plans to go out as I get my errands run Monday through Friday.
Have a nice and hopefully cool weekend.
