Friends and Kitties!
Along with my desire to be stylishly clad when I go cycling I don't want to scare the crap out of anybody I see on the bike trail, so I've discontinued my traditional winter moratorium on shaving my legs. I realized stuff must be getting long when I was out last week and I could feel the wind rippling through the luxurious pelage adorning my underpinnings. So, new razor in hand I stepped into the shower, ready to do battle, when I spied a heretofore unknown foe: hairy toes. Good grief, I've heard about the hot flashes, the mood swings, the weight gain, the general aches and pains of getting old--but this--Frodo feet? What is up with that?
It's been an ordinary week here at Casa Cerecke, with nothing very newsworthy to report. Scott and I have been busy around at home with assorted unglamorous projects such as Dust the Ceiling Fans, Furnace Filter Swap, and the always-daunting Refrigerator Top Expedition, none of which serve to inspire my meagre expository talents.
We did have a little excitement in the mail--the Chromebook I bought Scott for Christmas arrived. He needed something portable to use in the garage for monitoring his business inventory, and it fits the bill perfectly.
Can you spot it?
Sylvester had a purrsonal first happen Friday night; when I went to bed he was on the bed all cozied up in a loaf. Prior to this he's never voluntarily gotten on a bed, and if we'd hoist him up (all eighteen pounds of mighty tux) he'd jump down right away. Evidently at his old abodes he wasn't allowed on beds. Here of course he is, and he stayed for quite a while, even attacking the Dreaded Blanket Monster with vigor! I was a little teary--in so many ways Sylvester doesn't act like a cat (I don't think he knows how) and it really warmed my heart to see him be a typical feline and relax on the bed with me and some sundry Loungers. I'm interested to see if this was a one-off or the start of a nightly ritual--naturally I'd like to start sleeping with yet another
bed hogging furnace kitty. So far there's Rupert, Grayce, CC, Scouty (he thinks I don't know), Sweet Pea & Salem (who switch hit with Daddy), and May Ling in bed with me--what's one more?
Because there's tons of extra room down at the foot of the bed now that I've hedge trimmed my hairy halluxes.
Happy Sunday and have a Great Week!
