It's Monday morning, and only after I finished my 25 minutes on the cycle and had the coffee perking did I remember I needed to blog (Mondays are my days on the group writers blog, Writes of Passage). Oh dear. My brain is mush.
I'm still working on the line edits of Heart of Gold. Very close to the end but not quite. And in the evenings, I've been proofing some of my older out of print titles, preparing them to be re-released for eBooks. I wish I was a much faster reader, that's for sure. And I wish my brain wasn't mush.
Yesterday after church, I dined out with my daughters, their families, their father, and friends of my youngest. Great fun, and I ordered the Cinnamon Swirl French Toast. Decadent! Surprisingly, the scales weren't mean to me this morning. Still, I tried to work extra hard on the cycle, just in case it shows up later.
Okay, it must be time for a pet update. We have gone two or three weeks now without Poppet attacking Pinky. I'm feeling more relaxed. Poppet does chase her several times a day, but it's a game rather than an intent to kill or mutilate. Perhaps, thanks to the prayers of many, we are over the hump and a treaty has been reached between dog and cat.
I was worried because Poppet hadn't been eating much of her food for several days in a row … and then I discovered she was eating the cat's food. So now Pinky dines in the upper box of her castle.
While in the pet store to buy more kitty chow (I couldn't believe the cat was eating so much food!!!), I saw these feather and ribbon concoctions on a stick for just $4 so I bought one. Oh. My. Word. This thing has not only kept Pinky busy but me too (since I'm required on the other end). She jumps and spins and somersaults and soars and crashes. I laugh and laugh.
Have I mentioned that I'm a simple woman who is easily entertained?
As you can see, Pinky loves her toy. I believe her instincts to kill birds is in high gear when she sees it. And Poppet, obviously, is completely unimpressed and would much rather stare out the window than watch me and the cat act so silly.
