The heat is on its way. The temperature has gone up twelve degrees since this time yesterday.
Little Eliott trotted over this afternoon. He's wearing a spiffy white flea collar. The neighbours and I don't think he spends much time at home as he spends most of his day on their porch, and nights in our garage. He is hands-down the friendliest cat I've ever met, and for someone who worked in a pet store and volunteered with the SPCA, that's saying something. I was going to write a note to attach to the collar asking what they called him but thought he might come back with six answers on the paper.
After a week of doctor's appointments, we didn't get good news at any of them, we came up with some ways to deal with the issues. We're a good team in this family and really look out for each other.
Green seedless grapes were on sale today. I bought some. Impulse shopping in the produce aisle. This is a very good thing when I've been fighting the impulse to buy brownies all day. Grapes were the better choice. All I can do is make the best choices possible in the moment I'm choosing. That doesn't always happen but no one's perfect around here. Fortunately that's not my goal.
