I need another weekend to recuperate from this weekend--but I'm grateful for all I got done.

     Grateful for what I didn't get done as well--I hadn't yet gotten around to cleaning the closet after last weekend's flooding, and that sure paid off Saturday night when it flooded again. This time I didn't sleep through it, and though it was coming in faster than ever before, me and my itty-bitty pump managed to keep up and keep the water just in the closet. Whew!

     Got up at 6 after a rotten night to find another storm bearing down--but thank God it didn't rain quite hard enough to start the flooding all over again, just got me so jittery I wore myself out!

     And with all that fun, it was a treat indeed to get a comment from Shanra on one of my old hyarmi stories (a decade old, now!). I needed something good in my in-box after that restless night!

     Now, to get away from all the flooding babble, I got some fun photos of Shado today, as I was lying on my bed-on-the-floor during one of my breaks from cleaning. Got one of him doing his own cleaning, and was delighted to also finally get a photo of his amusing flehmen response--Shado sticking out his tongue!

Sorry to hear about another flooding night. So glad you were able
to contain it. I hope this is the end of it.

The photos of Shado are funny.

Me too! I'm sure you don't want to feel like you're really back in Minnesota by having to deal with THAT!

Glad you enjoyed them! =)

Now I'm glad I didn't get around to reading this when I'd put it on my to-do list. Now it's brought you some additional cheer. ^-^

I told him he has a fan, but he doesn't seem terribly impressed. ;)

Hope everything's going well with the new job and life in general!
