Ah, Friday the 13th. Those are always a treat.
I'm grateful the workweek went as pleasantly as it did. I wasn't sure how I'd adjust to a full 5 days after three weeks of 2-3 days working.
Some entertainment this morning at work in the form of a power outage that just affected most of the computers and machines. Alas, I was just getting comfortable with a book when the power returned. Still, it was fun.
It's been about a year of on-and off messes from the road construction on my block, and today they laid the final coat of blacktop. It will seem strange not having construction equipment and related objects around anymore.
The weather forecast has changed! Instead of rising into the 90's, it's supposed to make a slower rise to just plain average highs (83-84 F/28 C). Wonderful for me and my grasshopper-decimated wreck of a garden.
My cat Shado is a delight. Last night he set up his howling ("Mom, get it for me! Get it! Get it!") so I walked over assuming there was a bug on the ceiling he wanted knocked down...but it was a grasshopper escaping under my featherbed on the floor. I lifted the mattress up and the grasshopper leapt off, soon to be captured and munched upon. It amuses me how we 'train' each other. He knows I can reach the ceiling, and from a single observation chasing a grasshopper earlier in the week, he now knows I can lift the mattress for him too.
He sure is, and I'm happy he likes eating grasshoppers. =)
The longer I can avoid more 90's, the better. The few cool days helped slow down the grasshoppers as well, since they like it hot. Gave a few of my plants some recuperating time.
I hope you're getting better! *hugs*

heeehee...trained by the cat. =) i love it!
we're puppy-sitting this week for the pastor's family -- a cute, 3 month old golden retriever named "duke". he's actually a very good,smart thing...but we had a bit of false advertising. we got him yesterday afternoon...he slept most of the afternoon, played with the kids a bit, was crated while we went to bible study, then went to bed (with minimal fuss) when we did.
but this morning!! he's been up and at EVERYTHING since 5 am...quite a puppy! =) i'm not sure who's doing the training around here...and who's getting trained...there's some kind of weird three way triangle thing going on between the kids, myself, and the puppy...
back to it all! hope you have a wonderful monday!
