end of Augtober

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.

    Best blog post title ever. Heh. I'm sorry you didn't get good news. The warm weather has arrived here, too. Bedding stripped down to the mattress and on the line today. Smells good.

    1. Nothing like bedding to capture the smell of sunshine.
