Back to normal

It was nice to get past this weekend. That relieved some stress and now we can concentrate on our vacation coming up!  Woo Hoo!

I was up working at 6 a.m. (thank you insomnia) to start getting stuff caught up at work. Since they still haven’t gotten anyone to help on my account, I had to catch up all that didn’t get done Friday. So annoying, I have to say.  And a cause of stress. However, I did get it caught up and the account is current. Phew.

I was able to spend some time in the garden this evening – the days are getting so short now! I’ve started moving some plants around and cleaning up weeds and deadheading. All that stuff that got neglected for a couple weeks.  We won’t even talk about the master cleaning list!

I was trying to befriend the neighborhood cat who happens to be the culprit eating Pixie’s catnip. She was coming very close and then Pixie started meowing out the window and got the kitty’s attention:


She’s a beauty, but I wish her owners would keep her inside.

I do have to say that I’m worried I might be getting sick. I think I overextended myself a bit. Just a funny feeling. I hardly ever get sick, so I might shake it off. I hope so. Or if not, get it over with so when vacation starts in 2 weeks it will be gone.

We had to shop for groceries last night since I had the car all weekend. Look at what is in stores now!


Nothing like good fresh candy corn.

I had gotten some questions about how well Pixie likes her harness, so I thought I would post a video of her trucking along.

She likes it and we have created a monster. 😀

Now for some Monday Night Football and relaxing!

    You are a brave woman planting catnip!
    Hope you aren’t getting sick, or it’s a quick one. I’m also fighting off something and I’ve been doing all the tricks to fend it off for the last week. I hope this is as bad as it gets!

    Can’t wait to read about your trip!

    The black neighbor cat looks so silky! We had one – Lisa – she was beautiful and stayed tiny. I’m still cracking up at Pixie actually walking with her harness and not falling over “dead” like our cats would.

    Use that candy corn as medicine to stave off any illness! You can’t be getting sick now, with vacation on the horizon!!

    I find that seasonal changes seem to be when people get sick – lots of folks sick at my job and I feel like I should be wearing a mask to work. This morning I woke up feeling sort of blah and worried that I’m catching something. I sincerely hope you are not!

    The short days make me feel blah too so maybe that’s it?
