The end of the weekend ...
I'm upstairs with some of My Purr Gang
Al is by the fan ... not blowing but he's sitting by it. His mice are near by. One is a yellowish striped one and the other is white with black spots. He won't admit it but he loves his catnip toys. Jasmine is sitting between the laundry and magazine baskets. Hiding she is. Bella is at the foot of the bed ... snoozing like she does. Ashton is sitting in the window feeling the night air. Riley just walked out of the room and down the hall. He's my adventurous one. The four of them ... cats ... had a bit of salmon for a snack. Bella got to clean the can. Maddy Jean is outside. She loves to go out there and bark and watch bugs and listen to the sounds of the woods. If a siren goes off ... we live by two fire stations ... that's even better.
We cleaned the garage. Started to at least. It still has work to be done but we worked on it all Saturday and a bit this afternoon. You can tell that things are cleaner. Paths are clear. Mr. Boatman is a messy person. His Father is too. That's what got me going on the garage. His parents are moving out of their house. You wouldn't believe the mess they have in their garage and basement. His Dad made a statement that got me going ... "they should have cleaned up all their stuff twenty years ago". Now, they are having their children ... who are busy ... do it for them ... at least that's what they would like. Anyway, I decided that Mr. Boatman would not end up like his Dad. He would clean his garage and it would be now.
I've taken a before picture and will take a few after ones, when I think we are done. I don't think I'll get Mr. Boatman to clean everything but I'll keep going til he stops.
Went to the boat with Mr. Boatman this afternoon. It is supposed to rain tomorrow. OK, stop a while and think about that. We haven't had rain in what ... 30 days or so ... might be more than that. That is simply unheard of for my part of the world. We have moss on our fence and front porch .. it rains that much. We have forests called ..The Rain Forest ... now, they need to be renamed ... anyway, the rain it is a coming back to town. (Mr. Boatman needed to put the cover on it ... been off for so long that I had to remind him)
Oh, while I've been typing this .. Riley has joined Ashton and they are making bookends on the window ... both looking out into the darkness ... listening and watching for bugs.
Peace has come back to my world. I think the demons that venture into my DD are gone for now. She seemed to be in a good mood. My son even helped clean the garage ... both days. Please let them stay this way til they move out on their own.
That's my update ... I wish I did more interesting blogs ... I will work on that.
Oh, Maddy Jean is barking to come in ...
Mew At You later,
