Cats are pretty good yoga gurus, too. What is it about yoga that makes your animals think it’s a good time to curl up on your back or lap?
When it comes to Thinking Out Loud, yes, Chester is still on my mind. Pretty much every day. Some days I smile wistfully, some days I tear up. I know, since I’ve been through this before, that eventually I won’t be thinking of him every day. It just takes time.
I do think this TOLT isn’t quite as sad as previous ones. You be the judge.
I’m finding it a little harder to squeeze in now, because I’m sleeping later and getting up later. Which I really needed.
But I do miss all that yoga . . .
Chickens in the Road
I tend to read a lot of weird things; things that I download for free to my Kindle. Yes, I do get library books, too, but it’s been a while since I actually finished one. I don’t feel the need to finish a book if it’s not holding my interest. Life is too short.
I’ve always wanted to have lots of animals: miniature ponies, goats,chickens — I don’t know much about them, but I want them.
Maybe not so much after reading this book! It’s all about the author’s experiences moving to a farm and acquiring a lot of different farm animals, slowly but surely: chickens, goats, sheep, donkeys, a cow . . .
Let’s just say I’m pretty sure I don’t want to work that hard. I’m lazy. 2 cats & 2 dogs were plenty of work for me! You can also visit the chickens in the road website for more current updates.
That moment when you open the dryer and pull your Skirtsports capris out if it.
Yeah, the very expensive capris that you’re supposed to dry flat.
Well, I did buy them on sale so they were just expensive, not very expensive.
And they still fit.
When you doublecheck you have the correct URL for Skirtsports and discover you can buy last season’s at REI for a good price . . . I haven’t actually ordered anything yet, but good to know.
Except now the cat’s out of the bag, so to speak.
My Trusty Magic Bullet
I didn’t always feel that way. I don’t remember the details now, but we had all sorts of troubles and had to get a new one after many phone conversations. And then that one died in short order.
Or so I thought.
For some reason I held onto it. And for some reason, years later, I tried it again and voila! It worked.
I’ve since learned it just can’t handle difficult ingredients like dates, but it’s good for banana soft serve and banana pancakes and anything else that isn’t too tough to handle. I have my Vitamix for the tougher stuff, although that is very old and I really would like a new one, which my husband was quite willing to get for me over the holidays, only I just didn’t have the time to decide on which model.
In fairness to Chester, occasionally he missed a delivery. Like maybe 1% of the time.
Have you ever had an appliance die, only to be resusitated?
