Friends and Kitties!
First off, let me say that I'm joining in the Blogblast for Peace today!
Although with this around the house I don't entertain much serious hope for any meaningful personal peace (and quiet)!
Not that I mind.
It's been a nice week--work was fun, the weather's been nice, and the cats have been reasonably well-behaved. I knew it couldn't last...after putting my groceries in the car on Saturday I somehow lost my balance and fell in the parking lot, with the shopping cart (trolley for you British types) crashing on top of me, resulting in a spectacularly scraped up elbow and a knee that looks like an acid flashback. Sheesh. At least I didn't break anything.
See the Bob Kittens?
Well, my Mom and Dad's cat Shadow did too! This was her first time seeing them in "her" yard (they visit pretty regularly) and she was all up in arms, every fur and whisker poufed on Full Bottlebrush. She patrolled from window to window and back again all afternoon after they wandered off.
The pumpkin is our sole contribution to Fall decorating, and I'm gonna eat it next week. Scott bought it at the hardware store! Holidays aren't too big of a deal around here.
There's been earth-moving equipment working every day on the park. The guys move dirt around, scoop it up, dump it in the desert, and deliver more dirt. Scott is convinced it's just a giant construction worker's sandbox (sandpit for you Brits) out there.
Here's the view up the street.
Look what all the cars were hiding!
The big building in the back will be the "comfort station" for the trail head, and the smaller one in the foreground is slated for trash and recycling.
This is the big building from across the road...
...and the view looking back down our street.
With hindsight, I can see that this project was realistically never gonna be done until winter; the landscaping wouldn't survive transplanting during the summer months. Which doesn't excuse the slowness of everything else...but I have my fingers crossed for spring! Of 2013.
And why I bagged on the King's English today, I have no idea...
Have a Peaceful Sunday and an Injury Free Week!
