Fresh when it gets here from

Fresh (almost) daily from
Here I sit, slightly damp and more than a little peeved. I'll get to that in a minute.
busy weekend at the Manor. I worked most of Saturday, we had lunch with
a friend on Sunday, then we settled in to watch the Super Bowl, little
knowing that some people in Tuscon got a bit of a surprise in the 4th quarter.
I knew it took cajones to play pro football, but that's going a bit far.
know things are going to go pear-shaped when I state that I'm so
desperate to get away from the computer that I stoop to housework.
Today was just warm enough that I could tackle one of those jobs that
never gets properly done during the cold weather. That's right, I
thoroughly cleaned the cat box. Sure, I dump the litter and clean it
out as best I can, but somehow it never seems really clean unless I can take it outside, hose it down, and let it dry in the sunshine.
spare you the nasty details, but give you all the humiliating ones. The
new LitterMaid comes apart for easy cleaning. That means the top with
the mechanism gets wiped down with soap and water (carefully) while the
bottom can be immersed in water, hosed down, or what have you. I just
go outdoors with various cleaning implements and get to work.
the freeze last week killed our spray attachment. Instead of spraying
water at the target, water spewed out the sides and all over me. Some
of you in the northern part of the country may disagree, but here 55
degrees is just a little cool to get soaking wet. I came in, dried off,
then went out to finish the job.
Of course, Midnight sat at
the patio window, watching with amusement. I'm so glad I could provide
entertainment to the feline faction.
And now I see that the text
box application I use for entering blog posts is messed up. This should
post, but all the HTML and picture goodies are gone. Ack. One more
thing to do.
But first, I'm going to finish drying off.
