weekend blather

my wonderful husband
 got up to feed the cats on saturday morning 
so i could sleep in

 when i thanked him
 he said
 hey i read your blog

 it felt so good
 to sleep past 4 ayem
 thats the time the cats begin their assault
 to get me up to feed them
 mind you
 they dont get fed til 5:30

 i guess
 they think
 they need
 to 
emulate a snooze alarm

 did you know 
i dont use an alarm clock

never have

 no need

i always wake
 around 4-4:30
 look at the clock 
turn over
 go back to sleep
 knowing
 i can sleep 
for 
another
 however
 long 
til the time 
i need to be up 

i think i may have 'over slept' 2-3 times
 in 
my whole life

 its a gift 

ha

speaking of assault
 we watched
 edge of tomorrow 
on
 saturday evening
 it was quite a lot of fun

 if you've ever played a game
 say
 like
 angry birds
 where 
you can do it over and over
 til you get it right
 you'll enjoy this

 its sort of groundhog day set in an alien invasion/war

 tom cruise
 was good
 i say this
 because 
i am not a tom cruise fan 
but
 he was good
 in this 
 so was emily blunt

 i recommend this movie
 i am sure a lot of you
 won't
 find it to your taste 
but 
those 
who do will

when i did get up saturday morning
 i lazed around drinking coffee 
til
 it was time for my hair appointment 
my hair is longer now 
than its been in many a year

 i was growing out
 a
 not so wonderful cut 

now
 i am just letting it grow
 for the fun of it 

eventually
 it will need to be
 shaped
 styled

 maybe its already reached that point
 but 
i am not ready 
to 
decide on 
who
 i will let do it


i did a lot of errands on saturday
 it was
 chilly but sunny
a good day to be out 

sunday
 was
 also
 lovely
 i went to polished for my weekly mani/pedi
 my poor fingers
 are 
so cut up 
my nails
 were
 broken
 chipped

 the move
 took its toll
 on
 my hands
on 
my back
 in addition 
to
 sapping my energy

 not to mention
 but
 i will
 that
 my damn throat is still annoying me 

i am awaiting
 'permission' 
from my healthcare provider
 to see an ent
 so 
we can figure out 
what the heck
 this 
throat thing 
that
 is 
not 
a virus
 is

 grrrrr

 i have decided
 if
 i dont get the 'permission' slip
 in
 monday's mail
 i am making the appointment
 anyway


what else
 i dont know
 what else

 oh yeah

 the cats

 annie has tried to make friends with jack
 she avoids harry
 i think his hisses were more scary
 and
 he's bigger
 tho he is a mush
 he's not made friends with her 

i think 
he's jealous of my time with her

 jack
 is
 far more 
toonman's boy than mine

 annie is funny
 she has limited social skills 
she enters the living room
 sort of
 like
 kramer from seinfeld

 jack and she played chase
 once
 he
not the brightest bulb 
'got' 
that 
she wanted to play



 she likes
 the front window
 climbing up
 on the mantle
 or 
on the sink

 both
 get her told
 no 
very emphatically
 over
 and
 over

 but
 i think
 we're making progress

  1. Good to catch up ere Daryl.
    Sounds like you've been pretty busy, more than that, with the shift after your trip!
    Hope you will be able to find out what's wrong and get better soon.
    Some interesting photos, especially of the new building. When I saw it on the tv news, I thought of you moving in!

  2. You put up with a lot with your cats. I can't say anything though. I put up with a lot from our critters.

    How is Toonman doing with the Giants not doing so well this year?

  3. Great catch up. I can imagine the nails and hands and back scenario after the move. Hope you're using hand lotion all the time now. I started using Kiss My Face body lotion on my hands. I really like it, but actually, I just like the non-greasy feeling lotions.

    Good news about Annie, well, not about the sitting on mantles and sinks, but at least one of the boys is coming around. Milo and Morgan had a rip roaring claws out whirling dervish fight and fur went flying. They've never been the best of friends, (Morgan is terribly aggressive), but rarely do they come to blows. It was really shocking and they both got a good telling off.

    Nice of Toon to give you a sleep-in treatie in the morning. I also have an alarm clock in my head. I think mine came from years of figure skating and being on the ice by 6 every morning. Hope your week is a lovely one and nothing needs moving any more.

  4. I am home with the critters all week so Erik takes over much of it over the weekends, giving me a little break from their needs/demands.
    I can barely stand to look at my nails since I quit getting acrylics a few years ago. I just grew tired of the process and the lengthy appointment every two weeks, after more than ten years. Maybe gloves will come back into style.

  5. I have no critters at this time and I'm amazed you don't use an alarm clock. I don't need one, but need the security LOL

    Love the shot of the neighborhood, I mean really love :)

    Hope your week is less stressful and chaotic, but if it's not, just stare out your window and take a deep breath ♥

  6. Cats of course are meant to turn our lives into upheaval. It keeps us in line and reminds us that they're higher on the pecking order.

  7. I'm impressed by your lack of alarm clock (hungry cats notwithstanding). I wake up so many times during the night I need an alarm clock to wake me from the one good deep sleep I get--between 3:30 and 5.

  8. What lovely shots. Seems as if cats are alarm clocks with purrs and claws!

  9. Good to know the cats are finding their way with each other. I don't use an alarm either. Usually up at 5am. But I work from home, so timing isn't that important
