Monday Mumblings

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

I'd say that we're in the dog days of summer, but that would be an insult to the dogs. The cat days, perhaps. They're loving this heat - mostly. Abby tends to seek out the cool tiles of the front bathroom in the early evenings after a hard day of lounging at the patio door, watching birds and preening for the catcam. Midnight spends her days zonked out on the bed, conserving energy for her 4:30 am hairball. We could set our clocks by them.

Spent Saturday not working, as noted earlier. Spent yesterday not working, either. Watched the last episode of Foyle's War last night. Next week: the beginning of the end of the Inspector Lynley series.

Also watched This Island Earth. Only in that era could a star get away with the moniker Rex Reason. Apparently that's his real name. The film also revealed the origin of the Oompa-Loompas.

I do have things to do today: More on the new web site, laundry, grocery shopping, and drooping in the heat. Lots of drooping in the heat.

Hope your week is not as warm!
