Cheerio's looking for new grounds to conquer this morning. Clawed at the linen closet door, but I won't let her get in there because she gets in on the studs behind the kitchen cabinets and claws and claws until I can lure her out by rattling her bottle of treats. Then she wanted to go upstairs, and she can't go up there because she tries to get the door open into the unfinished attic. Finally, when I was putting things away in the toyroom closet she darted in there. Now she's content, sleeping on the basket of ironing, thinking she's gotten away with something.
Son called this morning and said he had been talking to lawn mower guy who said he would definitely be down today to cut the grass. Good thing. I take pride in the way my property looks, and I'm used to having the grass cut every 2 weeks.
Too bad about Saturday's expected rain, Winter. I think showers are predicted for Sunday too. Don't know how the new baby might change G.T.'s MIL plans, she was going to the parents' house for dinner. She may end up just visiting there quickly and then coming here for dinner with us, which would be nice.
DIL whose birthday was yesterday, called last night, they had just gotten back from an overnight at Foxwoods. Their lives are so busy, I love to see them make time get away for a day or two, just each other. This is pumpkin's Grandmother. Their whole family rearranges schedules to help care for pumpkin when his mom is seeing clients. His dad has a regular 8 hour day job.
Have a wash to throw in, then a cup of coffee and one of the end pieces of those hermits I made yesterday. Those are the best parts, to me. Remind me of Joe Froggers.
